Choosing the right engine is important.  Depending on the thickness of metal and size of electrodes you intend on using.  A 12 horse is capable of running 1/8 inch rods that fill thick metal pieces quick, but can be cost prohibitive for some.  A 9 hp will run 3/32 inch and a 5 horse will burn 1/16th all day long.  It all depends on what you intend on using the machine for.
