  • M-295 and M-295P Arc Wekders - Need more info

    Hello,

    I recently acquired two Arc welders. One is an M-295 and the other is an M-295P. I searched for the manuals on the site, but didn't come up with any results. Mostly I need to come up with the power requirements for these two. also, they didn't come with any leads for the ground or the stinger. What kind of attachments do these welders take?

            Am I correct in seeing that the M-295 takes 94 amps?

                  I saw another pic of an M-295 (non-P) and it does say 94 Amps for 230 V input.

                    and those are most likely RATED amps. I can't find the manual for those machine either but I imagine you are looking at 150 amp Circuit

                    You might be able to run it on a smaller circuit at lower power, don't know how much those machines use just sittin' there before you strike an arc.

                      Those are fairly similar in power requirements to an older Dialarc 250. Just a wee bit higher.

                        I would trade them both for a Dialarc ,,, easy or an AC/DC buzzer that ran on 50A
