I don't know if it is a common thing or not, but one of the welding suppliers in the area here will sell the demo units with full warranty at deep discounts. A friend of mine bought a 180 amp Lincoln a few weeks ago for $550. Looks brand new, with warranty, just had been demo'd at the supplier's. I think he said it had about 20 hours or so on it. I'd buy a welder with 20 hours for half price.....
