As far as the SOA, I run soa...

What voltage are you at? Heres a 1/8 7018 starting out at 70 volts. A lot depends on your alternator amps also, this one welds so much easier than the old 90 amp that I used to have.

Skip the 44 and go with the tons. Flipping a 300 isnt hard, I know a couple of guys running them.
