Generator for a MIG welder.

I have a Butters 170amp MIG and need to hire a generator to power it for a job. Does anyone know what size generator I will need to hire? I'll only be welding 2.2mm plate on a SWB S3.

Take your MiG and some plate to the hire shop to suck it and see.

3KVa and up is certainly where you'll be looking.
