  • SM 210i Electrical Question

    I'm considering buying a SM 210i and have a question about the electrical hook up. I have an older welder outlet wired with 6 awg with a 50amp breaker and see the 210i requires a 80amp breaker.

    I've looked several other welders in the 180 to 200 amp range and they only need 30/40 amp breakers.

    Why is the breaker requirement so high on the 210i?

    The rating in the OM is for fuses. Don't ask me why it is that way. The SM210i will work on a 50 amp breaker/#6 wire.
