    Bob,

    You are correct. Look at the link I posted below. 1/0 is plenty for a 250 amp machine up to 250'. #2 would get the job done for 99.9% of the jobs most people will do.

    Welding cable is like regular electrical wire; smaler the number the larger the wire.

    I can get about all the 1/0 from the Company that I retired from. They use 1/0 for grounding on Stations the guys are working on. Would 1/0 be good or should it be larger wire? It comes in 40' length. Another question: To change the voltage do you move the little clip on the terminal board?
    Bob
    1/0 is overkill, but at that price I would use it! I can't answer your question regarding voltage jumpers. Try downloading an owner's manual from Miller's site.

    Bob, I believe that even the ground has to be insulated.

    I bought 3 , nothing like having a pair and a spare. I got the serial no. checked and they were made in 1989, really dirty on the inside looks like they have been dropped out of an airplane. The guys in the shop all said they were regulary maintainted by the Miller supplier. I will have to buy some output receptacles as the got broken at one time or another. do each of the 4 have to be insulated from the case? Thanks again

    I live approx.75 mies south of Indianapolis and about the same no of Louisville Ky. I guess the approx. total weight for the 4 would be around 1600lbs.

    I would think that hauling 4 of them (1450#) would be OK as long as U didn't have to haul them a long way. I have a 1/2 ton P.U. and I wouldn't of afraid of it.....if it bothers U
    just buy 3 and call it good!!

    I will sell it after I get them home, I've already got 1 sold. I'm getting what I paid for them. I've only got a 1/2 ton Pickup and don't know how many I can haul at one time. he has 4 left and I'm getting 3. If I thought my 1996 1/2 Chev ex-cab would not collaspe I'd buy all 4 of them. $200.00 each and only trying to help others if I'm able to haul them. Anyone think it would be ok? I would hate to overload my poor old Chevie.Several others waiting for them but I have first choice on them. One of the guys on the board ordered one.
