  • MILLER BOBCAT 225g plus question

    I Just purchased a new old bobcat 225g plus welder with 150 hours on it,still on the original bottom pallet still bolted to it? runs and welds as good as it looks,it still has the plastic on the faceplate..It has an onan 16 hp motor, when were these made? Did I make a good move by puchasing an older machine? Do they still make parts for them? Looks like a great old classic ? My gut told me to go for it! what do you all think?

    With a little help from the brotherhood of welders! Maybe?

    Well fellas it ended up being a new old 1997 year model,w/ p216 onan engine its a real classic!i probably will never find another one in this life! Maybe someone on this forum can tell me if its ok to use quaker 5-50 synthetic oil year round in it being an older model or what oil should i use for year round service here in the northeast i am doing a pm on it soon only because its been sitting. Whats the deal?

      5w-50 synthetic is what Cruizer recommends and it is what I am using in mine.

            Download the owners manual

            and get the numbers for the filters. NAPA and Advance crossed my filters
            for my `89 legend with onan 218. Just did a complete tune up. Check the fuel lines
            mine were shot. Found the fuel lines when I changed the fuel filter.
            Hope this helps.

                Down load manuals from this site

                Use the serial # from the machine.

                      Hola señor duaneb: Quiero agradecer la informacion ya que si a sido de gran ayuda, ya visite la pagina de Onan y esta bastante bien; estube viendo las refaccines que tienen para la maquina onan P216 y la verdad si tienen de todo.
                      solamente quisiera saber si envian las refacciones a Mexico pagando con tarjeta de credito.( La soladura me apasiona)

                      P.D si entiendo lo que me escribe puesto que con el traductor de google es muy facil.:

                          Sí, utilizando un servicio en línea de traducción no es el mejor pero suficiente en comprender lo que usted dice. Espero que consiga qué información que usted necesita.
                          Duane

                          Yes, using an on line translation service is not the best but enough to understand what you are saying. I hope you get what information you need.
