  • Canox Redcat 2?

    Hello i recently acquired a Canox Redcat 2 with a 16 hp onan engine on it. The thing runs like a top the only thing is the auto idle dont work. I was wondering if someone could tell me what miller owners manual would be close to the same or tell me were to begin to diagnose the problem. Thanks for any help

    should be the same as Bobcat 225

    I used one of these machines a long time ago , it was identical to a bobcat 225 that we also used around the same time , Id try the serial number on the service tab on the top of the page to be sure though.

      Thank you very much for your response. I am not very knowledgeable about canox welders, from what I understand is they are just re-badged millers is this correct?

        You are correct.

        Yes Miller made these welders for Canox , They also painted them orange and sold them to Acklands too . Did you try the serial number under the service tab up top the web page? These machine are pretty reliable, just keep an eye on your oil if its using some .

                cruizer is a repair tech.

                You wondered how he came up with "birthdate"? He seems to be able to access a beter, more detailed database than what Miller and Lincoln allow us to visit. Give the guy some business if you can.

                    Go to the resources tab, click on owners manual then click on locate by model name. Now enter serial # & scroll down & click on "Bobcat 225G". This will give you the manual.

                      Huh, its just a Bobcat 225(G) actually, as for birthdays on machines, Techs have access to a vast array of sites that the operator does not have access too.

                          In addition if it helps, Onan had very detailed service manuals on all their models if you can track it down. There's model ID on the engine itself and I've found manuals through vintage Onan sites on the net. I believe the throttle/idle controls should be very similar to an Onan Emerald generator engine?

                            Thanks every one big help with trying to get some info on this machine.
                            cruizer I kinda figured it was (G) for gas correct?

                              The most common options for running a spoolgun off the Bobcat is a WC-115A weld controller and Spoolmatic 30A spool gun (current products) or a WC-1 and Spoolmatic 1 spoolgun (former products). The WC-115A is offered with an optional contactor (so the gun isn't "hot" without the trigger pulled) whereas a remote contactor had/has to be used with the WC-1/SM-1 to accomplish the same thing.

                              Keep your eyes open and you'll run across all of them on ebay and craigslist (not so often) but keep in mind they work together as listed.
