  • Run Hobart 180 Handler with a generator...

    I would like to run a Hobart Handler 180 mig welder with a Generac 5000XL Generator 120 / 240.

    I have 25 ft. of 10/3 Carol Water Resistant S00W wire with black, white, green wires.

    What types of plugs would I need to make an extension cord so I could run the welder with the generator?

    Want 220v.

    Thanks.

        You have either a NEMA L14-20 or L14-30 twist lock receptacle on the welder. Go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get the corresponding plug.

        Here is a recent thread on this subject.
