This welder can be run off of 20 amp breaker, 230 volt service with #12 wire for the minimum rated output. It is recommended to achieve the full rated output of the welder you would need a 30 amp breaker, 230 volt service with #10 wire.

Staff Answer
Shielding gas for both TIG welding (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding or GTAW) and MIG Welding (Gas Metal Arc Welding or GMAW) use pure argon for aluminum materials up to ½" in thickness. Above ½" in thickness, operators may add anywhere between 25 to 75 percent helium to make the arc hotter and increase weld penetration. Argon is best because it provides more cleaning action for the arc than helium does and it is also less expensive than helium.

Never use any shielding gas that contains oxygen or carbon dioxide, as this will oxidize the aluminum.

Northern offers wire for aluminum welding. See items below.

I use 100% ARGON shielding gas and you can use any aluminum wire you choose as the spool gun eliminates bunching of the wire. 5356 and 4043 work equally well

The amp draw is 24 amps and requires 30 amp breaker. If that is what you have it will work with your generator.
