It will be a low amp welder, <150amp at full wack fr a good weld. 

It is a mine field though as to what you want, be best to look at welders you fancy, what Amp are you needing or what are you wanting to weld to see what size welder you need?   

It is the first kick of power that kills it. And the Genny needs a good no peal supply of power.

MachineMart do a whole bunch of 160A inverter welders with 13A plugs, and then a bunch more bigger ones that require a 16A feed. From about £150 to over a grand, and several makes.
