  • MM251 plug

    Could someone post a pic of the plug that comes with the MM251. I have a 250V/50A NEMA recepticle now that I use for a PowerMax600. I was wondering if the MM251 can use the same outlet. I have it wired with AWG6 to a 50amp breaker. Thanks, Jim

    This is a pic of the outlet I have now.

      That looks liek the beast. Mots 220 volt machines come with the plug like yours, even if they don't require 50 amp breaker; just simplifies life.

        Thanks for the reply. I just wanted to make sure I had the right outlet when I get it. Thanks again. Jim

          Hey Ripshot,
          That's exactly the setup I'm using with my new MM251. However, you might want to check your input amperage. The owners manual calls for a 50A breaker if you've got at least 230A. If you're getting less, you should use a 60A breaker.

          CORRECTION to the INSANE reply above:

          Substitute "input voltage" for "input amperage" and "230V" for "230A", and suddenly it makes sense.

          Obviously I've got to:
          1. Have another cup of coffee
          or
          2. Hire a proofreader

          Be cool,

            Thanks for the info Alex. I generally have an average of 230V depending on the power company. I have a 50A breaker now. Just curious but why would I need a 60A breaker if the power is less.. ?

              Ripshot,
              Don't quote me on this, but I think it's an amps vs volts thing. If you've got less potential (volts), you're gonna suck more current (amps) to get the same output. Amps x Volts = Watts.

              Anybody else have a better/clearer/more correct answer?

                Alex,

                For the most part, you are correct. A X V = W.

                Surge current will determine some of this also but with the MM251, it should run just fine off 50A in any case unless you are into smokin 5/8" plate

                A-
