I'm pipefitting up in the Alberta oilpatch and am planning to rig up a picker truck. I'm debating between these two threaders. I realize the 690 is not all aluminum like the venerable 700 but it seems to be lighter and draws a little less electricity. Any drawbacks to either one that I may be missing? Which do you prefer?
I have a Honda 2000 inverter gen set. Would this be appropriate to power these threaders?
