If both machines were the same size and weight. Which would yall prefer to weld with in pipeline and construction jobs.

I don't know much about either one, but the decision might hinge on who is buying the fuel.

While I have not run those exact machines I have run a 500D, Big 40's, SA200, SAE 300, and more.  I have always preferred the arc characteristics of the Lincolns.  Especially for pipe.

Have a Great Day,  Brent

Never ran a SAE-500 before but the 300D is nice but if you would a third option take a look at the Pipeline 200D. Thats what I would prefer the most but that's just my 2 cents.

The pipeliner 200 only has dc power outlet that is a bad scratch against it but other than that its a bad motor scooter

Lincoln is coming out the a SA 300 Redface in January. Dont know a lot of details about it but  it is roughly the same size as the 300D. They guys I have talked to that have ran one said its one bad ass machine.

I have run a SAE400 and it was a great machine was very sorry to see it go.  It was also huge I would say 1/2 the sixe bigger that a 300D.

Don't know about the red face one but the Classic 300D is back with new engines to meet EPA Tier 4i.  You couldn't get the 300D for a while when the last change was happening.  Could be another engine change next year ?
