Hi there,
The short answer is that you can't do this with a Bobcat, you need a Trailblazer welder with a remote socket.
The reason that this isn't a good idea is that the wires you talk about are in the rotors exciter circuit, at full output there is going to be something like 7 amps flowing thru those wires, 'dya really think those wires on your expensive remote control will handle 7 amps?
The rheostat is a 100 watt one, think about holding a lit up 100 watt bulb in your hand...

If you really need remote current control you might try talking to your local Miller dealer, he will be able to check on trading your machine for a reconditioned Trailblazer for a reasonable price.

Regards,
Carl

I have a miller bobcat 225 is lower power while welding, any idea?


First off, check all of your welding cables to make sure they're in good shape, then check for tight cable connections. Is your machine staying at low idle speed while trying to weld? If so, Switch the idle select into the 'weld' position and make sure the high RPM's initiate. Try welding again. Better? Could be a number of things, if not.

Have a 225 bobcat welder wont stay running can add fuel to carberator but if i stop sparing fuel in unit stops??


The fuel pump is one of the probable faults, or the needle valve in carb is stuck in closed position.

If the fuel hose is removed at carb, it should squirt gas as the engine is cranked over. If not, look in tank to see if the screen on the barb threaded into the tank has not clogged up with debris. If it is clean, replace fuel pump.

If it squrits gas- open up the carb and check to make sure the float is able to pull the needle valve down as well as the float level setting. When the bowl is exposed, look for sediment as well.

Can i power this unit with my old Miller Bobcat 225. Also what gun do you recommend?


If your Hobart Mig is less than 250 amps then yes you can, bobcat 225 will give you10000 watts and you require at least 8000 watts for the hobart.

Bobcat 225 does not produce ac current 110 or 220?


Probably you need to act the braker, put the idle at max (pull throtle) and let it run for a minute, that will reset the braker.

Battery location.......dahhhhhhhhhh


Hi Louis, the battery sits on the bottom of the unit, just inside the rear right side service door.
if you were to look at the machine from the back, it would be located right in the middle on the bottom of the unit.

Miller bobcat 225g plus welding problem


If the idle is not working, then it is either you idle solenoid attached to the carberator or your idle board is bad. If you apply 12Vdc to the idle solenoid is should move, if not then the solenoid is shot, no good. If it works then you idle board is bad. Also, check to see if you are 60Hertz by measuring at the outlet with a frequency meter. I recommend a Fluke meter. You should have 120Vac and 60HZ at the outlet. If the frequency is low then your engine speed needs to be increased. The idle solenoid could be causing all these problems.
