xantrex vs. outback: Need Advice, please
First post here; I have been scouring this forum for info and i'm still torn on whether i should go with a xantrex XW6048 or dual Outback setup with or without transformer. (i'm building an off-grid system) I have a 1/2hp 240VAC well pump, a 1hp 240VAC irrigation pump (which i manually turn on (w/ timers actually at night), and use modest shop tools, biggest being a 1 horse table saw and a small arc welder 240AC. My main concern with the Outback is price. Also, i'm not sure about running stacked inverters w/out a transformer. I know that the xantrex sw plus had issues, and i'm gathering that xantrex customer service overall is not the best. Does the xw series have a good track record? Is Xantrex customer service as bad as some discussions indicate? Is the life expectancy better or worse with the outbacks vs. the xantrex? Also, i would like to get any advice on whether i should use an auto-transformer on a stacked outback setup given i have some relatively larg-ish 240 loads. BTW, i don't need auto gen start feature and i will be doing my own install. Any help would be appreciated.
