Default H&M Welder Information

I just picked up a H & M model TR-180 welder and would like to go through it before plugging it in. Does any person have any information on what to look for before I try to operate it? What do I need to look for. Any literature. Thank you in advance. Craig

i also have a P&H welder(just learned what it was).i belive it to be of 225 amp or more.the best thing i can say is check the primary with a multimeter.be sure primary is ok , then check for faults to the case from both of the primary leads.then check secondary the same way.hook up primary to 120 volts first, then to 240 next. with one end of the meter grounded.with power applied check for stray voltages.if all is ok , which proabaly correct.ground frame. then check the secondary for output. if it checks out hook welding leads to it. see what it will do.does it have a crank on top & three output terminals? can you post some pics?

Here are a couple pics I have right now. Not sure why, but it looks as if someone scratched off the word "SINGLE" on the last line above the P&H.

I think that the word 'single' was not removed intentionally, just a coincidence. Your plug (3 core wire) also denotes single phase.

Hope you can revive it.

Are you sure it did not say "Three", and someone re-wired it for single (most likely with a lower rating)?
