In order to insure my welders will operate as designed I installed all 6 ga wiring from the box to the welder.

I'm picking up a MM211 in the very near future to replace a MM210 I had but was not being used as much as it would have been because of its physical size.

I will be closely watching the MM211's performance though after hearing people are complaining about it.

One things for certain, it won't be an input voltage problem if there are issues.

I might just rent one for a day to see how I like it.
Input Voltage is not a problem
I've run mine on 120v 200' from a panel
208v no problem
240v from a Honda 6500w genset
240v at home 30amp breaker

Runs fine.

The 240v "problems" we're real problems with defective machines not input Voltage
