Questions & Answers

20Questions31Answers

Can you run this off of a 3500 watt generator with 30 AMP outlet at 70 to 90 amp output?

Asked by Zac May 11, 2019
2
Answers

According to the Forney operating manual, the 100ST requires a generator with 4000 watts of continuous output without an auto-idle. Many generators are boxed with their start up wattage, not their continuous running output so ask questions. The Forney representative cautioned that welding machines can be affected by power fluctuations in home generators and GFIC outlets can frequently trip at 90 amp output. I would recommend that you call Forney Inc directly for details. They have excellent customer service.

This is an excellent welder for hobbyists or small projects around the shop. 90 amp limit restricts the rod size and metal thickness that can be welded but for the price this welder can’t be beat. 3/32 rods work best, 1/8 is a bit much. If you are just starting out or looking for a smaller portable welder, that doesn’t require a 220 volt outlet, this is a great option.

For a self taught beginner stick welder who wants to learn the basics of striking an arc, running a weld and working on thin material this is an ideal machine. The price is reasonable, the set-up is easy, the controls are basic and the power demand is home friendly. I anticipate upgrading in the future to a larger amperage model but the Forney 100ST will still be a good portable welder to have in any tool shop. It is well worth the investment.
