    power

    I just have been welding thin material or should i say learning. I also have the built in cooler. maybe if I have to use full power it will trip the breaker.

    Welcome to the forum!
    I have the same machine and the size of the breaker depends on what you plan on welding. When I weld heavy Copper it really uses alot of power. Mine is on a 75amp breaker and I've tripped it a time or Two. When I'm welding steel I don't even get close to the top end of this machine.
    Good Luck!
    (It's a great machine)

    You will if you stand on it hard enough, it should pop a 30A breaker, if not you might have a problem with the breaker. The machine is rated for 96A @ 230 volts and I dont know if that includes the cooler. I have a 100A breaker powering mine. I'm sure the equipment is rated at max amp output with the cooling fans running.

    The synch calls for 100A service.

    Power Requirements

    Hi, my name is Doug and I am new to this form.

    I am the VP and part owner of RND Automation in Sarasota, FL. We design and build custom machinery. I have the opportunity to purchase a used Miller Syncrowave 250 with cooler and torch. I have single-phase power in the shop but what size breaker will I need? And what size breaker can I get a way with? Most materials being welded will be between 16ga and ΒΌ steel.

    Thanks for your help
