The serial number is for a spec 4085 which is an M-300 Motor generator that requires a three phase input to power the motor to get welding output from the weld generator. The unit was shipped to R K Miller welding equip., Chicago May 21, 1970. The G-3010 you refer to was a 300 Amp engine driven welder with 10kva auxillary power.

Looks to me like an engine drive....:confused:

I think what Bill's saying is that the serial number Cyclone quoted doesn't go with an engine drive machine...

Here is an M-300 electric motor generator with close serial number and pictures of the tag. Different beast.
Here is a 3010:

Thx for all the replies, still a little confused though. Maybe whoever stamped this frame did it wrong, as this is a 600amp DC engine drive unit.... I think.
I see that 3010 is an AC/DC unit, so that's not what I have, anyone care to guess as to the model number of my unit pictured above?

Nice to see I'm not the only one insane enough to revive and put one of these old girls back to work! A nice Ranger or Trailblazer would have been nice, but I never did things the easy way. Just too many immovable objects in life to not have some brute force available. Yours sure looks like a G-3010.
Search thru this forum for my posts of this restoration there are many posts.
I've gotten alot of help here, Hobart Caleb was even able to ID the build date, specs and dealer. Good luck these are a heck of a machine.
