  • do I have a big enough electrical service to run my welder

    Well I settled on getting the syncrowave 210, and I was just wondering if the electric service I am putting in my shop it big enough. I'm running a 100 amp sub panel to my shop that will come off of the 200 amp service that's at my house

    100 amp you could run a nice used 250 syncro or pt 275 much nicer rigs

      It wants to see a max 30 Amp breaker @ 230VAC..

        sub panel is a great way to transfer power but!!!!....you still only have 200 amps. So add up what the house uses add 10 percent for safety...then subtract that from your 200amp service. Some houses are all electric...ie oven, dryer, water heater, house heater, ac systems and the 200 amps is used up quickly. Others have ample reserves. Now the other question is how far is your subpanel going to be from the main panel? That plays a role to. Keep in mind to feed 100 amps to a subpanel #2 or #4 is required and thats for shorter runs..ie under 60ft or so.

          Is the new synch an inverter? 100A is good but the old synch took 60.

              In my opinion you are good to go since it's an inverter based machine.

                Pat H. The 250 syncrowave pulls a little over 100 amps so by the time you add lights in the building and a possible compressor that might kick on while welding your running short on amps.

                However, That is if he's running at maximum amperage.
