    MY FM140A MIG INDICATES THAT IT CAN RUN 130 AMPS ON A 20AMP PLUG BUT NEEDS 30AMPS TO RUN AT MAX OF140AMP OUTPUT FOR THICKER STEEL. THE MAIN CORD IS A 3-12 WIRE. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT I CAN CHANGE THE PLUG END AND INSTALL AN 30AMP WALL PLUG TWIST LOCK UNIT WITH 10GAUGE WIRE THEN UP GRADE THE BRAKER TO 30AMPS. WILL THIS WORK???

Hi, yes it can be ugraded but,( theres always a but,) you will need a feed from the mains to a rated connection on the main fuse box, this is not a DIY job, certain rules and regulations prohibit the unqualified. the new line will run to it's own fuse box, then to wherever you want, garage or w/shop with electrical cable 1.5biger than your max (30 amps) best be safe , you cooker socket is thirty amp, but thats max, there are some people that would increase the fuse size, ending up,( If they arel lucky), for a total re-wire those unlucky guy's arn't around to tell the tale. contact your provider and get it safe.
lets know how you get on

Where can I get spares for stramm welder


I just did some serious searching to answer your question, and have come to the conclusion that you will need to start in South Africa for your answers.
South Africa was the only place I found any names of such a machine.
God bless your efforts.
