    airco year and info

    3A/DDR224HPA/B-D
    Serial M271384

    Year of manufacture, miller equivalent and/or any manual would be great

    Super happy with the welder - it replaced my TIG box mounted to my old buzz box with no foot control....way nicer!

    Thanks,

    Dave J.

      Dave,

      I did a little digging and found some info. The unit you there was built in 1963 and as best I can tell it would be comparable to a Miller 330 ABP. The manuals on-line don't go back quite that far so you will have to call get the correct 330ABP manual. 920-735-4356

        Excellent - that was very fast I have a 1968 manual that wasn't quite right - now I know why. Thanks for the quick response!

            Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I somehow missed your PM.
            The unit you have crosses over to a Miller Dial Arc 250P AC/DC stock number 901576.

            The serial number doesn't give me any clues as to the age of it unfortunatley but that unit was built from the early 60's up until the early 70's. If you want me to I can try to get a manual for it.

              I thought the earliest DialArc 250 was circa 1974. The Two Fifty and Two Fifty Twin were earlier.

              Dialarc 250 (1974)

                USMCPOP,

                You are correct I called it a Dial Arc but it's really called just a "250 AC/DC". It has a large crank on the front that moves a shunt to adjust current. It is very similar to the Two Fifty Twin.

                    Airco EasyArc AC/DC 250

                    Kevin
                    Would you mind checking another machine cross reference?

                    I purchased an Airco EasyArc AC/DC 250, Serial # MH402092, Stock Number 1341 0280 but I cannot find any documentation for it anywhere. I am hoping it is also a Miller product but I fear it may not be because the serial number seems to be in a slightly different format than what the lucky others have posted!

                    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

                    I have searched the Internet pretty thoroughly hoping to find a manual or at least some information about the maker and age of my welder.

                    Thanks,
                    Kevin

                      i need the manual for an Airco easy arc ac/dc 250 also.

                      Code: 0903
                      Serial:MH311 237
                      Stock: 1341 0280

                      Was this made by Miller? If so, what year would it have been made?

                        Kevin,
                        Here are some pictures of the welder I need information on. I will have to replace the cord end, so I will need to open it up and while I am doing that I can verify it was the correct wired connections if I had a wiring diagram/manual.

                          If anybody can help me until I locate a manual I will be very grateful. I need to know what kind / size wire I need to use to wire from my 200 amp service to my 220 volt outlet. The outlet will be approx 35 feet from the service.

                          My best guess is #6 AWG but that may be over buying. I really do not wish to guess about something this important! Again, any help is appreciated.

                                It depends on the type of wire and the temp rating.
