I recently received a stickmate lx 235 ac/dc welder as a gift. However i have no way to plug it in as i have no 220 outlet. So my question is, what size/kind of circuit breaker do i need to install and what size wire should i run to the garage (where i will setup the machine aprox. 75 ft. away). I currently have a 100 amp breaker box with all circuits used up except one. Im hoping thats not a problem. The only other question i have (at the moment) is regarding the duty cycle. The machines ive been welding with for over two years now, are miller cts 280's. I usually run anywhere from 85 to 120 amps on these without a problem, i have no idea what the duty cycle on these are. Will i be able to do the same with the stickmate? The manual says its rated for a 20% duty cycle. I weld pipe, and after the root pass im burning rod constantly, minus a few seconds to brush the slag off of eash pass. All responses are greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
