Miller Maxstar 150 s power source?

by Andrew
(Findlay, Ohio)

Hi Jody, my company has recently purchased a maxstar 150 s. This is actually one very impressive machine using 220. However, id like to plug the 115 directly into a 3500 watt generator, is this safe for the machine to do since there is no breaker to kick off once i run above 70 amps? Any help would be great!
Thanks, Andrew

Andrew,

I am not really sure.

later inverters like the dynasty 200 are designed to be used with generators but not too sure about the 150.

that is not much help, i know,
