I have been looking around for a multiprocess welder to use personally and was leaning towards the Cigweld Transmig 200i. I was using Tweco Robotics products before, and they were quite good, though the machines I worked on were a mixup of Lincoln, Miller, Tweco, Weldman and a host of other brands cobbled and made to work together. I thought that Cigweld, being part of the Victor/Thermadyne group, should be pretty decent. A little bit of poking around in the internet led me to the Longevity PRO MTS 200i. I can't help but notice the similarities between the units, one guy from another forum event went as far as suggesting the the Fabricator 181i (Transmig 200i's brother from another mother), might have come from the same factory. From that same forum, it was announced by Simon that there would be comparison between the Fabricator 181i and the PRO MTS 200i. That was September of last year. I cannot seem to find any at all.
I found out and got interested in the Longevity brand of products because of the good reviews about the machines and the support. Considering my location, I will not hope much in the way of customer support, but I would still like to see how the Longevity PRO MTS 200i compares/differs with the Cigweld Transmig 200i. If any forum members have anything to share regarding these two machines, please do share them. I was bent on the Cigweld at first, and then I saw the Longevity unit and the happy customers's reviews. Now I am not sure which one to get... It would be nice if Longevity coul finally come up with that video comparison, but this time with the Cigweld unit.
