    The short answer is:

    It depends.

    ...on joint style, whether you preheat, etc.

    You have 200amps to play with. Maybe an effective 250 if you change the frequency (according to Miller). You can check out one of Miller's weld calculators to get you in the ballpark.

    I've never had a need to max mine out, but I do 1/8 aluminum, 1/4 steel and 16 ga. stainless all the time.

    I have a Dynasty 200DX. It is a great welder, I have not had any problems with it. I have welded 3/16" aluminum with it.

    What do you plan to use it for?

    As said above, it depends. I have welded from .010 up to 3/4" aluminum with mine.

    You could easily do 1/4" or even more with preheat and multiple passes. The 200 DX is a very nice machine and very flexible.

    By the way, I was visiting your hometown back in 1974. My brother-in-law lives in Klagenfurt, Austria, near the border. We went to your town for lunch. It was before all of the trouble. Marshall Tito was still in power.

    Your country is very beautiful!

    Regards.
