Default Honda EW171

I have a EW171 Honda weilder/generator unit that I had to rebuild the frame for. I plan to use the unit strictly as a gen unit but it only provided 120v out lets. Is there a way to get 220 out of this unit?

Without a wiring diagram it is hard to say. If the gen could make 220 it probably would be there all ready.

What amperage 120V does the gen produce? What do you want to run on 220? Transformers for small loads are inexpensive, larger ones are $$$

If this is back up power for a house, you could pick the Neutral and one Hot to power 1/2 of the house. Another way is to bridge both hots with a breaker and use the neutral. ( be sure to turn off the breaker to all 220 loads ) The last probably would not pass code and the first would be iffy to pass. Both "work" but if you burn the house down or get shocked that is of your own doing.
