Its a 1997 with a tig runner package and a coolmate 4 along with a few other items.I have never tig anything but stick and mig I have done for some time. Any suggestions is much appreciated.. Ty

    Make sure you try it out on dc, ac, stick, etc. different amp ranges. If you don't know how, bring a friend who does. Good luck, hope its nice for a good deal! Let us know how it goes. You can also look up the serial on millers website to get more info about it. I'm not sure if that model has the counter for run hours and arc starts, gives an indication of its use history. You could look up its manual on millers site to find out how to do this.

          100 amps at 230 volt

          Without looking up the manual, I would think that you would need around 100 amps at 230 volts to come close to getting full power out of it. The manual would give you the real number. Broccoli has the right question.
