The portable welding generator is a machine mainly used to provide generator power and bar welding capability. They are cost-effective and an excellent machine for farms and pastures. They can be mounted on the back of a trailer or can be turned on wheels for extra portability. More expensive models can also choose to use additional equipment for MIG/TIG welding.
Engine driven portable welding generator
Engine-driven welding machines connect gasoline, diesel, or propane fuel engines with generators to provide power for rod welding, TIG, MIG, and flux-cored welding. Engine-driven welders are usually transported by trucks or trailers for outdoor use. The electric power generated by the welding generator powers fans, pumps, air compressors, or other electric tools commonly found on the job site.

Will a 5000 watt generator run a welder? You can run up to 180-200 amps on a 240-volt generator rated for 5,000 running watts and 6,000 starting watts, but it will spend a lot of time at high rpm. A generator rated at 5,000 peak watts would be restricted to a 120-volt welder at 140 amps while running full blast.
Full load kW = Total amps x supply voltage / 1,000.
Reserve capacity = Full load kW x 0.25.
For 100 percent power, generator size = Full load kW + reserve capacity.
Retail application: 50 kW + 10 watts per square foot.
Other commercial application: 50 kW + 5 watts per square foot.
