That is some good info about generators. Never really crossed my mind. Do you know of any manufacturers that are making newer generators, other than the inverter generators, that are putting out power clean enough to not worry about running the smaller machines off of or do they all need to be put on a scope to be checked??
Also, is there something that I can use ( an attachment of some sort) to help clean up the power on the generators that I have. I have been fortunate enough to not have had a problem yet, but I am not trying to sit around till I do. I am hooking up the Passport Plus and the Maxstar 150 STL to it. How sensitive are they?? Thanks

Thanks for the input guys! a miller generator/welder is a little out of my budget, I just bought the Multimatic and love it! Im thinking of getting either a Generac GP7500E, or the Westing House WH7500E. Any body know witch one is a better piece of equipment? Thanks again fellas!

So a 5500 watt generator would would be ideal, but as a couple other users stated I'm going to be using other tools and lights on the generator. So I figure a 7500 watt would be more than sufficient. I was just wondering between which of the 2 generators I should go with that I put in the previous post.

Gotchya, I missed that link on your last posting. Im thinking of going with the Generac, online reviews give the Westinghouse better statistics though

What generator would be good for a mm200?
If you do end up buying the Generac or another generator that has the 14-30 plug you will need an adapter to the 6-50 on the welder/cutter. EVSEadapter.com has some pre wired ones that are reasonably priced.

We have a NICE Kohler generator at work, that could easily power Two of those Multi Matic 200's a few grinders, an air compressor, some lights, and a small subdivision all at once with no problem. But it's only 300KW. If you want, I can get the model number for you. Hey, he never said it had to be easily transported. But on the right truck it wouldn't be a problem, even with the fuel supply and distribution center. It has a 500HP Detroit Diesel, 6V-92. Plenty of power for this application.
