    Not sure why I wrote the 3200 MIG (with flux-core wire) is the most efficient method. A 5000w generator can run the 225AC welder on 240vAC. Whereas to run the 3200 MIG on 120vAC you need an 8,000w generator.

    The most efficient will be whichever combination works with the eqpt. that you HAVE.

    The dual voltage receptacle will put out 30A AC. That's assuming I fully understand the dual voltage receptacle operation

    My 250 GXT will put out 42A per leg at 120v from its dual voltage receptacle.
    Looks like it. You'd still have to make an adapter to go to a conventional 120 volt 20 amp receptacle, or, change the 120 welder plug to 4 wire twist lock using only 3 wires. So not off the shelf plug and play.

    I wasn't sure. You know I'm not too good on electrical stuff.
