    Hi all

    Got myself a Clarke PG2500 genny and a Cros Arc 220DHF Tig welder.

    How do i work out if the genny will run the welder on low amps, like <60amps ?

    I was just going to have a go but not sure if it damage anything of the genny or welder?

    Just want to some SS welding on the new boat if i can with out fetching parts home.


    :)

    Id be hecking if the welder is generator friendly, some are, some are not. Also when you strike up you generator will need to ramp up to take up the load, so it will also depend if the AVR can ramp up quick enough

    60 amps,especially on tig,should be okay.
    if you can use the upslope function even better.
    but its still a Chinese inverter,so it could blow
