foot pedal switching

Hi jody, i posted earlier about stainless problems, i took advice and also did what im always telling students.PRACTICE.im now laying near perfect welds with a basic machine,one question if i get a pedal does it switch the main juice or the torch feed from the unit, the reason i ask is coz the inverter causes the circuit breaker to throw when switched on, once reset its ok but minute you turn off at the wall it will throw it again on re start,the site is very inspiring keep it up.jon.

jon,,

i am not sure i understand the question.
a foot pedal should not cause any more amperage draw than not having one.
