If you run one on a gennie, I suggest you make up a pigtail or a cord with a 20 or 30 amp plug if your generator is so equipped. We use one with a 3500 Honda and it won't run long on the 15 amp circuit. Definitely use slow acting fuses so a surge doesn't blow them easily. If it's similar to the Lincoln SP125, it suggests a 20-25 amp supply right on the back of the machine. This in itself makes little sense when it comes equipped with a 15 amp plug end. Go figure...
