Answer

To my knowledge there aren't any additional leads to purchase. Any modifications done are probably not recommended since longer leads equates to more resistance.

How big does my generator need to be to run it on 105 amps?

Asked by Bb June 21, 2020
1
Answer

Here is the answer from the Lincoln Electric Support site: It appears that a 5000 or 6000 watt 230 VAC generator is large enough to operate my AC/DC 225/125 welder using a 1/8 inch diameter E6010. Please confirm. It does appear (if you do the math) that you should be able to use 1/8 in. and smaller diameter electrodes with an AC/DC 225/125 powered by a 5000 or 6000 watt generator. Unfortunately, the design of the transformer on the AC/DC 225/125 is not efficient enough to be powered by a small generator. If you try and weld with this combination you will most likely experience the electrode being hard-to-strike and also the electrode frequently sticking to the work. If you are fortunate to establish an arc, the arc will tend to pop out frequently. Also, there will not be adequate heat input to the work, resulting in low weld quality (poor fusion), and poor bead appearance. To successfully run your AC/DC 225/125 welder you would need a minimum of a 15,000 watt AC generator.

Answers

the NEMA 6-50 receptacle is designed as a 250 volt rated (used for 208, 220, 240, 250 volt systems) it has no neutral, only the two phase conductors and a grounding conductor. a 250v single phase receptacle with a neutral would be designated as 125/250 volt rated and the NEMA configuration for this would be NEMA 14-50R and would have a slot for two hots, one neutral and a ground conductor

Is this welder made in U.S.A. AC225s

They have been making this unit for many years (50?). They may have gone to "locally assembled from some outsourced parts ".

If I convert to tig can it weld aluminum since it's a AC current welder?

Asked by Daniel December 14, 2019
1
Answer

For small jobs, there are work arounds that can be done without TIG. If you need to do much aluminum work, look at some of their other units. There are some wire feed units that would be much better and cheaper to upgrade to TIG.

What is the maximum thickness steel this can weld 1/4 inch or greater?

Asked by Mark October 27, 2019
1
Answer

Absolutely, no problem. Quarter inch is the easiest size for this rig. Frankly, anything less than 1/8" could be difficult. For thinner stock, a smaller unit, especially a wire feed, would be much easier to control. Depending upon your skill and knowledge as a welder, and the surface preparation of the metals involved, this unit is capable of going much thicker than quarter inch. Half inch would be a cake walk. This unit has all the power you would probably ever need, unless you are burning big rods (3/8") rapid fire for long seams.

In the rough, how big a generator is needed to operate this machine without overloading?

Asked by Roni September 8, 2019
4
Answers

Roughly a 10 to 12 KW generator would be needed to operate this welder at all power levels.

Any recommendations for a portable generator that can run this?

Asked by RR August 8, 2019
2
Answers

I would recommend nothing smaller than a 10 KW generator.

Purchased THIS welder OVER 25 Years ago and, STILL WELDS GREAT!!

Purchased THIS welder OVER 25 years ago and, STILL welds GREAT!!! I have had Trucks all my adult life and, heavy equipment too for a while. Never been a "wealthy" man so I have always bought used equipment and, fixed it myself! And, I can tell you first hand THIS Welder HAS the POWER to penetrate HEAVY Metal! Always be sure to clean ALL your surfaces! (ground too) The Trick to getting it to Stick is PENETRATION!! The ONLY other thing I can say is that I have never had any formal training as a welder but, I NEVER had ANY weld fail. NEVER! Again the trick is PENETRATION and, CLEAN your surfaces! That being said, many "REAL" welders (like certified ones) have told me that IF I liked welding with THIS welder I should try the AC/DC version. They ALL say the DC welder works better and, is easier and, makes a nicer weld. Well after I returned to Pittsburgh from NC. I went to work for one of the local trucking companies and, they had an AC/DC version of this welder and, I used it many times and, I can NOT honestly tell you that I noticed any appreciable difference what so ever. Maybe it might have been a little easier to get the rod started. But, I never really had any trouble getting a rod started anyway. Please DO NOT HESITATE for one second. THIS IS A GREAT WELDER! It has NEVER let me down!! NOT EVER!! 26 years atleast! And, I have NOT been nice to it either! Run it hard and, long and, under harsh conditions too! NEVER a problem. GREAT WELDER!
