Since I have never done this myself, I dont have a valuable opinion.

I just searched a few welding forums and it seems like its commonly done...some say the welder will have a measure of reduced capacity on 50 hz.

i would search welding forums like weldingweb.com to see if others have done it with a comparable unit.

anyone else got something to contribute?
