  • HH180 and Generator size

    i seen somewhere in here someone had a Generac 5000XL generator onto a hh180, so my question is where can you get that generator so i can do the same? Is Generac a manufacturer or a company name? What type of wattage is it? 5000 watts? I was always told it takes 30 amps of 220v=6600 watts, i don't understand,please help if possible. Mike

        I would buy a welder generator. cost you about the same amount of money for a good 5000 watt gen. as it would lets say a miller 185 gas driven or the Hobart champion 4500. I use the Hobart 4500 and it runs my miller 180 auto set. the Hobart cost me here in canada $1300.00 I think the miller 185 DX was $2500.00. but you need to consider what you want to do. do not weld all day every day so I can get buy with the 4500. if you are planning to do a lot of welding maybe a Hobart 10.000 or a miller bobcat. diverdown
