    You don't typically see longer length guns being recommended for any machine under 350 amps, its much easier to push larger diameter wires long distances especially with the 4+ drive roll systems you typically see on those larger machines.
    Gun length aside. Is there any problem with me changing the ground lead to a 15 footer, if I go with 2awg?

        Hobart Expert, can I get some actual technical information?

              There are now 2 different topics being discussed, gun length and work lead length. I have read through the thread and have been replying to the thread throughout.

                Why can you not accept the responses you are getting...... The so valuable numbers (to you) are probably not available.... Just get real and accept the fact that extending the gun lead causes more resistance to the movement of the wire in liner, not to even get into the current carrying capabilities of the gun lead.... Going beyond design parameters of gun lead could be successful or not..... Depends of the wire diameter, liner ID, the viability of rollers to grip wire and the resistance in liner.... Just try it, and report back so we have some reference for the future discussion....
