everlast 250ex vs htp 221

Postby nailbanger138 » Wed Aug 09, 2017 8:27 pm

Hello all, I am looking for some honest feedback on these two machines. Feedback from OWNERS/EXTENSIVE USERS of either of these machines. I have already explored all of the technical specs on my own, so what I am looking for is pros and cons. The duty cycle and extra amperage of the everlast is appealing, but I feel like the quality and service for the htp may be better. I am really interested in a more long term perspective. I have read plenty of comments from people that have had a machine for a month or 2, and use it once a month. How do these compare after a couple years of use. I would probably average 10 to 20 hours of arc time a month on whatever I decide to go with. What are the quirks of either machine? Is the asymmetric ac on the htp useful, or is it a gimmick? Please offer any relevant commentary.

Posting the same question in more than one place is spamming the forum.

I'm okay with the posts. You can generally tell the difference between a spammer and someone genuinely looking for information.

Honestly, I posted in the wrong spot initially, and wasn't sure how to remove it. Turns out, I am getting more information where I initially posted, and yes, gathering (hopefully) unbiased, actual user feedback is my goal. Either machine is a fair bit of money, and I really don't want to make a poor investment.

I have had an HTP 221 for going on 4 yrs. now. I considered an Everlast but declined due to questionable reviews. HTP has great customer service. I would do the same again.

Have you had any problems with your htp? What was your interaction with the support team?
