    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.

    Thank you for posting your pictures. Your work looks very nice! What are you using for a MIG welder?

    I think that you will be very happy with a Dynasty 200DX. I know that I am very happy with mine.

    Unlimited!

    If you know how to weld.
    Sorry to be an A hole but the truth is tha machine will put out X amount of amps period, what you do with them is all up to you.


    With the correct weld joint and some preheat 200 amps and 20% duty cycle will let you weld well at thickness exceeding 1" Aluminum stainless and steel

    Please rephrase your Question so it can be answered.
