welding with inverter power
« on: May 01, 2007, 04:35:56 AM »
I always wondered how an inverter would react to powering a welder and now I know. Got lazy yesterday and didn't want to run a heavy extension cord out to the gen building to do some welding so I fired up the 195 and plugged my Lincoln wire feed into one of the Dynamote 3.5 kw inverters. Sure was nice to hear the Changfa get a load on it from welding. Did about 30 minutes with no problems at all. I have always been scared of burning up an inverter until now. Something about hearing a diesel powered welder just makes me smile.
