Well, there wasn't any difference in how long the welder took to crap out between using my 50' 10 gauge cord and just plugging it right into the genny, so the problem is not in between the welder and the generator.

If the machine proves to work flawlessly tomorrow, I think we'll know which end the problem is truly on. My question is, if it is indeed the generator's fault, then what in the world can I do to fix that? Take it in for service, or just accept the fact that Briggs/Generac makes crap and I'll be tied down to using a socket...?
