  • Update on the generator power

    In an older post I was asking about using gen power/ THD with the 211. Thought I would share what Miller said about it.

    " The Millermatic 211 is pretty forgiving when it comes to input power. As long as you have a generator that is providing roughly 60Hz power and at least 7,000 watts continuous 230 volt power the unit will be fine."

    Well, after some time has passed, still have no power. I took the Ridgid gen. back and now have found another half price new in th box.

    6800 running watts is pretty close to 7000 watts, think I should use it???

    The auto idle stopped working on the last one. This one I can't take back.

    At least I would have something until I could do better, but that cash could go towards an engine drive later down the road.
