    Here is the manual page... just match your serial number to the correct version and the info will be in the book...
    BTW.. for single phase 240vac... you will probably want a NEMA 6-50 plug..

      Just an FYI- the MM252 is Single Phase only so the switch is easy.

      yes it does have the option for 460v/575v but that is Single Phase as well.


      H80N posted up the link to the manuals- just change the Jumper and swap out the plug and yer ready to roll.

        Its a single phase machine, so flip the big door open , beside the wire drive, there is a panel with some copper jumpers, set the jumpers for your power, stick on a proper input plug for your receptacle and off you go.

            Here is your manual.. for this serial# MA500403N
            looks like it was built during the first half of 2010

            See section 5-11 (page 19)
