    Thumbs up 250 ex arrived 4 days ago

    Hello : I just got a 250 ex last week and so far I love it.
    I was reading somewhere about using a 40-50 amp plug . Is that required for such a small primary cable? What is it 12 ga? I am 6 ' from breakers. Let me know if I need to change it.

    Any way , I have a 20 A and so far so good. I used Pulse on some 1/8 in al and it works GREAT. Thanks to all you at Everlast.
    I also did not notice til I almost used a 125 of Ar that the flowmeter is LPm I had it at 20 thinking it was CFH.

    min is 40 amp breaker I would use a 50 amp aleast and being so close 8 gauge wire would be good . I use 50 amp plugs and 60 amp breakers with 6 gauge wire but that because the wiring is over 50 feet long at my machine shop for my welders they last long since not the min recomended .

    No, 20 amp is too low. If you haven't tripped your breaker, then I suggest you get another breaker!! It might be faulty.

    I will resolve this amp issue I hope by posting this:

    Default dryer cord ?

    Unless you have 220 3 phase power.

    A 6-50 p NEMA plug is the standard welder plug.
