This Hobart welder requires a NEMA Type 6-50 outlet in order to be plugged in correctly.

Voltages can vary approximately 5 percent and in most cases you do not have to worry about the Volts being exact, your 220 Volt line will work for the Hobart welder.

answer 2
220 voltage is a general term when talking about residential electricity. Your actual voltage will be 240 volt. What should be considered here is the amperage. you need to know the amp draw of the equipment vs. the amperage of the circuit. The circuit should be sized accordingly, Breaker and wire gauge. Never over rate the circuit more than 15% of the actual laod and never under rate the circuit by any percentage.

This welder will work for what you have. I installed a 220/50am breaker, and it works great. This is the option that you need.

Yes, the spool gun listed in the accessories tab is the correct spool gun for this welder. It's item# 916461. It's a direct plug-in spool gun, and is a quick and easy install on the IronMan 230. Please see below.

Yes, this welder will work with a spool gun, but you must buy the correct one. Like Miller, Hobart offers several machines and spool guns, but the guns are machine specific. I don't remember the model number, but check with Hobart's website if necessary.
