1-2. Arc Welding Hazards
The symbols shown below are used throughout this manual
to call attention to and identify possible hazards. When you
see the symbol, watch out, and follow the related instructions
to avoid the hazard. The safety information given below is
only a summary of the more complete safety information
found in the Safety Standards listed in Section 1-5. Read and
follow all Safety Standards.
Only qualified persons should install, operate, maintain, and
repair this unit.
During operation, keep everybody, especially children, away.
D Always verify the supply ground − check and be sure that input
power cord ground wire is properly connected to ground terminal in
disconnect box or that cord plug is connected to a properly
grounded receptacle outlet.
D When making input connections, attach proper grounding conductor first − double-check connections.
D Keep cords dry, free of oil and grease, and protected from hot metal
and sparks.
D Frequently inspect input power cord for damage or bare wiring −
replace cord immediately if damaged − bare wiring can kill.
D Turn off all equipment when not in use.
D Do not use worn, damaged, undersized, or poorly spliced cables.
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.
Touching live electrical parts can cause fatal shocks
or severe burns. The electrode and work circuit is
electrically live whenever the output is on. The input
power circuit and machine internal circuits are also
live when power is on. In semiautomatic or automatic
wire welding, the wire, wire reel, drive roll housing,
and all metal parts touching the welding wire are
electrically live. Incorrectly installed or improperly
grounded equipment is a hazard.
D Do not touch live electrical parts.
D Wear dry, hole-free insulating gloves and body protection.
D Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulating mats
or covers big enough to prevent any physical contact with the work
or ground.
D Do not use AC output in damp areas, if movement is confined, or if
there is a danger of falling.
D Use AC output ONLY if required for the welding process.
D If AC output is required, use remote output control if present on
unit.
D Additional safety precautions are required when any of the following electrically hazardous conditions are present: in damp
locations or while wearing wet clothing; on metal structures such
as floors, gratings, or scaffolds; when in cramped positions such
as sitting, kneeling, or lying; or when there is a high risk of unavoidable or accidental contact with the workpiece or ground. For these
conditions, use the following equipment in order presented: 1) a
semiautomatic DC constant voltage (wire) welder, 2) a DC manual
(stick) welder, or 3) an AC welder with reduced open-circuit voltage. In most situations, use of a DC, constant voltage wire welder
is recommended. And, do not work alone!
D Disconnect input power or stop engine before installing or
servicing this equipment. Lockout/tagout input power according to
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147 (see Safety Standards).
D Properly install, ground, and operate this equipment according to
its Owner’s Manual and national, state, and local codes.
D Do not drape cables over your body.
D If earth grounding of the workpiece is required, ground it directly
with a separate cable.
D Do not touch electrode if you are in contact with the work, ground,
or another electrode from a different machine.
D Do not touch electrode holders connected to two welding machines at the same time since double open-circuit voltage will be
present.
D Use only well-maintained equipment. Repair or replace damaged
parts at once. Maintain unit according to manual.
D Wear a safety harness if working above floor level.
D Keep all panels and covers securely in place.
D Clamp work cable with good metal-to-metal contact to workpiece
or worktable as near the weld as practical.
D Insulate work clamp when not connected to workpiece to prevent
contact with any metal object.
D Do not connect more than one electrode or work cable to any
single weld output terminal. Disconnect cable for process not in
use.
SIGNIFICANT DC VOLTAGE exists in inverter welding power sources AFTER removal of input power.
D Turn Off inverter, disconnect input power, and discharge input
capacitors according to instructions in Maintenance Section
before touching any parts.
HOT PARTS can burn.
D Do not touch hot parts bare handed.
D Allow cooling period before working on equipment.
D To handle hot parts, use proper tools and/or
wear heavy, insulated welding gloves and
clothing to prevent burns.
OM-257 950 Page 1
FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous.
Welding produces fumes and gases. Breathing
these fumes and gases can be hazardous to your
health.
D Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breathe the fumes.
D If inside, ventilate the area and/or use local forced ventilation at the
arc to remove welding fumes and gases.
D If ventilation is poor, wear an approved air-supplied respirator.
D Read and understand the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs)
and the manufacturer’s instructions for metals, consumables,
coatings, cleaners, and degreasers.
D Work in a confined space only if it is well ventilated, or while
wearing an air-supplied respirator. Always have a trained watchperson nearby. Welding fumes and gases can displace air and
lower the oxygen level causing injury or death. Be sure the breathing air is safe.
D Do not weld in locations near degreasing, cleaning, or spraying operations. The heat and rays of the arc can react with vapors to form
highly toxic and irritating gases.
D Do not weld on coated metals, such as galvanized, lead, or
cadmium plated steel, unless the coating is removed from the weld
area, the area is well ventilated, and while wearing an air-supplied
respirator. The coatings and any metals containing these elements
can give off toxic fumes if welded.
ARC RAYS can burn eyes and skin.
Arc rays from the welding process produce intense
visible and invisible (ultraviolet and infrared) rays
that can burn eyes and skin. Sparks fly off from the
weld.
D Wear an approved welding helmet fitted with a proper shade of
filter lenses to protect your face and eyes from arc rays and
sparks when welding or watching (see ANSI Z49.1 and Z87.1
listed in Safety Standards).
D Wear approved safety glasses with side shields under your
helmet.
D Use protective screens or barriers to protect others from flash,
glare and sparks; warn others not to watch the arc.
D Wear protective clothing made from durable, flame-resistant
material (leather, heavy cotton, or wool) and foot protection.
WELDING can cause fire or explosion.
Welding on closed containers, such as tanks,
drums, or pipes, can cause them to blow up. Sparks
can fly off from the welding arc. The flying sparks, hot
workpiece, and hot equipment can cause fires and
burns. Accidental contact of electrode to metal objects can cause
sparks, explosion, overheating, or fire. Check and be sure the area is
safe before doing any welding.
D Remove all flammables within 35 ft (10.7 m) of the welding arc. If
this is not possible, tightly cover them with approved covers.
D Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable material.
D Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot metal.
D Be alert that welding sparks and hot materials from welding can
easily go through small cracks and openings to adjacent areas.
D Watch for fire, and keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
D Be aware that welding on a ceiling, floor, bulkhead, or partition can
cause fire on the hidden side.
D Do not weld on containers that have held combustibles, or on
closed containers such as tanks, drums, or pipes unless they are
properly prepared according to AWS F4.1 and AWS A6.0 (see
Safety Standards).
D Do not weld where the atmosphere may contain flammable dust,
gas, or liquid vapors (such as gasoline).
D Connect work cable to the work as close to the welding area as
practical to prevent welding current from traveling long, possibly
unknown paths and causing electric shock, sparks, and fire
hazards.
D Do not use welder to thaw frozen pipes.
OM-257 950 Page 2

D Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding wire at
contact tip when not in use.
D Wear oil-free protective garments such as leather gloves, heavy
shirt, cuffless trousers, high shoes, and a cap.
D Remove any combustibles, such as a butane lighter or matches,
from your person before doing any welding.
D After completion of work, inspect area to ensure it is free of sparks,
glowing embers, and flames.
D Use only correct fuses or circuit breakers. Do not oversize or bypass them.
D Follow requirements in OSHA 1910.252 (a) (2) (iv) and NFPA 51B
for hot work and have a fire watcher and extinguisher nearby.
FLYING METAL or DIRT can injure eyes.
D Welding, chipping, wire brushing, and grinding
cause sparks and flying metal. As welds cool,
they can throw off slag.
D Wear approved safety glasses with side
shields even under your welding helmet.
BUILDUP OF GAS can injure or kill.
D Shut off compressed gas supply when not in use.
D Always ventilate confined spaces or use
approved air-supplied respirator.
ELECTRIC AND MAGNETIC FIELDS (EMF)
can affect Implanted Medical Devices.
D Wearers of Pacemakers and other Implanted
Medical Devices should keep away.
D Implanted Medical Device wearers should consult their doctor
and the device manufacturer before going near arc welding, spot
welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, or induction heating
operations.
NOISE can damage hearing.
Noise from some processes or equipment can
damage hearing.
D Wear approved ear protection if noise level is
high.
CYLINDERS can explode if damaged.
Compressed gas cylinders contain gas under high
pressure. If damaged, a cylinder can explode. Since
gas cylinders are normally part of the welding
process, be sure to treat them carefully.
D Protect compressed gas cylinders from excessive heat, mechanical shocks, physical damage, slag, open flames, sparks, and arcs.
D Install cylinders in an upright position by securing to a stationary
support or cylinder rack to prevent falling or tipping.
D Keep cylinders away from any welding or other electrical circuits.
D Never drape a welding torch over a gas cylinder.
D Never allow a welding electrode to touch any cylinder.
D Never weld on a pressurized cylinder − explosion will result.
D Use only correct compressed gas cylinders, regulators, hoses,
and fittings designed for the specific application; maintain them
and associated parts in good condition.
D Turn face away from valve outlet when opening cylinder valve.
D Keep protective cap in place over valve except when cylinder is in
use or connected for use.

1-6. EMF Information
Electric current flowing through any conductor causes localized electric
and magnetic fields (EMF). Welding current creates an EMF field
around the welding circuit and welding equipment. EMF fields may interfere with some medical implants, e.g. pacemakers. Protective
measures for persons wearing medical implants have to be taken. For
example, restrict access for passers−by or conduct individual risk assessment for welders. All welders should use the following procedures
in order to minimize exposure to EMF fields from the welding circuit:
1. Keep cables close together by twisting or taping them, or using a
cable cover.
2. Do not place your body between welding cables. Arrange cables
to one side and away from the operator.
3. Do not coil or drape cables around your body.
OM-257 950 Page 4
OM
4. Keep head and trunk as far away from the equipment in the
welding circuit as possible.
5. Connect work clamp to workpiece as close to the weld as
possible.
6. Do not work next to, sit or lean on the welding power source.
7. Do not weld whilst carrying the welding power source or wire
feeder.
About Implanted Medical Devices:
Implanted Medical Device wearers should consult their doctor and the
device manufacturer before performing or going near arc welding, spot
welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, or induction heating operations.
If cleared by your doctor, then following the above procedures is recommended.

LE SOUDAGE peut provoquer un
incendie ou une explosion.
Le soudage effectué sur des conteneurs fermés tels
que des réservoirs, tambours ou des conduites peut
provoquer leur éclatement. Des étincelles peuvent
être projetées de l’arc de soudure. La projection d’étincelles, des
pièces chaudes et des équipements chauds peut provoquer des
incendies et des brûlures. Le contact accidentel de l’électrode avec
des objets métalliques peut provoquer des étincelles, une explosion,
un surchauffement ou un incendie. Avant de commencer le soudage,
vérifier et s’assurer que l’endroit ne présente pas de danger.
D Déplacer toutes les substances inflammables à une distance de
10,7 m de l’arc de soudage. En cas d’impossibilité les recouvrir
soigneusement avec des protections homologués.
D Ne pas souder dans un endroit là où des étincelles peuvent tomber
sur des substances inflammables.
LES FUMÉES ET LES GAZ peuvent
être dangereux.
D Se protéger et d’autres personnes de la projection d’étincelles et
de métal chaud.
Le soudage génère des fumées et des gaz. Leur
inhalation peut être dangereux pour votre santé.
D Des étincelles et des matériaux chauds du soudage peuvent
facilement passer dans d’autres zones en traversant de petites
fissures et des ouvertures.
D Eloigner votre tête des fumées. Ne pas respirer les fumées.
D Surveiller tout déclenchement d’incendie et tenir un extincteur à
proximité.
D À l’intérieur, ventiler la zone et/ou utiliser une ventilation forcée au
niveau de l’arc pour l’évacuation des fumées et des gaz de
soudage.

en portant un respirateur à alimentation d’air. Demander toujours à
un surveillant dûment formé de se tenir à proximité. Des fumées et
des gaz de soudage peuvent déplacer l’air et abaisser le niveau
d’oxygène provoquant des blessures ou des accidents mortels.
S’assurer que l’air de respiration ne présente aucun danger.
D Ne pas souder dans des endroits situés à proximité d’opérations
de dégraissage, de nettoyage ou de pulvérisation. La chaleur et
les rayons de l’arc peuvent réagir en présence de vapeurs et former des gaz hautement toxiques et irritants.
D Ne pas souder des métaux munis d’un revêtement, tels que l’acier
galvanisé, plaqué en plomb ou au cadmium à moins que le revêtement n’ait été enlevé dans la zone de soudure, que l’endroit soit
bien ventilé, et en portant un respirateur à alimentation d’air. Les
revêtements et tous les métaux renfermant ces éléments peuvent
dégager des fumées toxiques en cas de soudage.
LES RAYONS DE L’ARC peuvent
provoquer des brûlures dans les
yeux et sur la peau.
Le rayonnement de l’arc du procédé de soudage
génère des rayons visibles et invisibles intense
(ultraviolets et infrarouges) susceptibles de provoquer des brûlure
dans les yeux et sur la peau. Des étincelles sont projetées pendant le
soudage.
D Porter un casque de soudage approuvé muni de verres filtrants
approprié pour protéger visage et yeux pour protéger votre visage
et vos yeux pendant le soudage ou pour regarder (voir ANSI Z49.1
et Z87.1 énuméré dans les normes de sécurité).

2-6. Informations relatives aux CEM
Le courant électrique qui traverse tout conducteur génère des champs
électromagnétiques (CEM) à certains endroits. Le courant de soudage
crée un CEM autour du circuit et du matériel de soudage. Les CEM
peuvent créer des interférences avec certains implants médicaux
comme des stimulateurs cardiaques. Des mesures de protection pour
les porteurs d’implants médicaux doivent être prises: Limiter par
exemple tout accès aux passants ou procéder à une évaluation des
risques individuels pour les soudeurs. Tous les soudeurs doivent
appliquer les procédures suivantes pour minimiser l’exposition aux
CEM provenant du circuit de soudage:
4. Maintenir la tête et le torse aussi loin que possible du matériel du
circuit de soudage.
1. Rassembler les câbles en les torsadant ou en les attachant avec
du ruban adhésif ou avec une housse.
2. Ne pas se tenir au milieu des câbles de soudage. Disposer les
câbles d’un côté et à distance de l’opérateur.
3. Ne pas courber et ne pas entourer les câbles autour de votre
corps.
En ce qui concerne les implants médicaux :
5. Connecter la pince sur la pièce aussi près que possible de la
soudure.
6. Ne pas travailler à proximité d’une source de soudage, ni
s’asseoir ou se pencher dessus.
7. Ne pas souder tout en portant la source de soudage ou le
dévidoir.
Les porteurs d’implants doivent d’abord consulter leur médecin avant
de s’approcher des opérations de soudage à l’arc, de soudage par
points, de gougeage, du coupage plasma ou de chauffage par induction. Si le médecin approuve, il est recommandé de suivre les
procédures précédentes.

. To take advantage of the WCC features, the Suitcase X−TREME 12VS w/WCC wire feeder must be used with a WCC Control, Dimension NT
456 w/WCC, XMT 350 VS w/WCC or other power sources with WCC in the product description. The Suitcase X−TREME 12VS w/WCC wire feeder
may also be used as a standard feeder on any Non−WCC power source.

Pull trigger on gun.
Do not strike an arc.
Decimal points on feeder voltmeter will blink.
When decimal points stop blinking and a voltage is displayed, the feeder and power source or WCC Control are associated.
Use voltage control on feeder to adjust weld voltage.
The voltmeter will alternate between preset voltage and open circuit voltage while idle or weld voltage at the wire feeder while welding.
. See Section 4-7 for detailed equipment setup.
4-7. Equipment Setup
. To take advantage of the WCC features,
the Suitcase X-TREME WCC wire feeder
must be used with a WCC Control, Dimension NT 456 w/WCC, XMT 350VS w/
WCC or other power sources with WCC in
the product description. The Suitcase
X-TREME WCC wire feeder may also be
used as a standard feeder on any
Non-WCC power source.
During WCC operation, preset weld voltage
and wire feed speed are set at the wire feeder
front panel. Voltage control is disabled at the
welding power source.
Associating the SUITCASE X-TREME WCC
wire feeder to a WCC compatible welding
power source or WCC Control:
1
On WCC power source set Mode Switch
to V-SENSE FEEDER position. For XMT
350VS w/WCC mode switch can be in
any position except LIFT ARC TIG
mode.
2
On power source set Panel/Remote
Control Switch to REMOTE position.
(if applicable).
3
On feeder set CC/CV switch to CV
mode. The feeder will not associate with
another piece of equipment if the feeder
is set to CC mode.
4
After connecting wire feeder to WCC
Control or welding power source (see
Section 4-4) turn on both pieces of
equipment.
5
The welding power source voltage
display alternates between preset
voltage (set at the welding power
source) and open circuit voltage. The
wire feeder voltage display will alternate
between three dashes and open circuit
voltage.
The display on the XMT 350VS w/WCC
power source will vary, depending on the
process it is in prior to being associated.
6
For the wire feeder to control the welding
power source, the wire feeder and power
source, or wire feeder and WCC Control
OM-257 950 Page 14
must be associated. If the wire feeder is
not associated to the welding power
source or WCC Control, the wire feeder
will try to associate to a welding power
source or WCC Control when the trigger
is pulled. To associate the wire feeder to
the welding power source or WCC
Control, pull and hold the welding gun
trigger DO NOT STRIKE AN ARC. While
the association process is taking place
the decimal points on the wire feeder
voltage display will blink. When
associated the decimal points stop
blinking and preset voltage is displayed.
Release the trigger on the welding gun
after preset voltage is displayed. The
association process may take up to five
seconds to complete.
7 Once association is complete the
voltage display on the wire feeder will
alternate between preset voltage and
open circuit voltage. The voltage display
on the welding power source will
alternate between preset voltage (set by
the wire feeder) and open circuit voltage.
When using the XMT 350VS w/WCC
power source the REMOTE IN USE light
will be lit when association takes place.
Preset voltages, between the wire feeder
and the welding power source should be
within 0.5 volt of each other.
8 While adjusting the voltage control on
the feeder the voltage display will show
only preset voltage. Ten seconds after
the preset voltage has been set the
display will alternate between preset
voltage and open circuit voltage.
9 While welding the welding power source
will display weld voltage at the studs of
the welding power source. The wire
feeder displays weld voltage at the wire
feeder.
10 While welding, due to the voltage drops
in the weld cable, the voltage display at
the wire feeder and the voltage displays
at the welding power source may not
match. The preset voltage at the wire
feeder may need to be set to a higher
value to compensate for the voltage drop
of the weld cable. Example, if welding
voltage of 18 volts is desired at the wire
feeder and there is a 4 volt drop in the
weld cable the preset voltage at the wire
feeder should be 22 volts. (18V + 4V =
22V)
11 Once the wire feeder and welding power
source or WCC Control are associated
they will stay associated until either unit
loses power. The wire feeder can lose
power for up to ten seconds and still
recover its association with the welding
power source or WCC Control. This is
for situations where the wire feeder may
momentarily lose power due to a
prolonged short circuit condition in the
welding process.
Using the SUITCASE X-TREME WCC with
a Non-WCC compatible welding power
source:
1
The wire feeder may be used with any
constant voltage (CV) or constant
current (CC) DC welding power source
as long as the power source has a
means of supplying a DC open circuit
voltage capable of powering the feeder.
2
Set CC/CV switch in feeder to match
output of power source.
3
The wire feeder will automatically work
on a non-WCC compatible welding
power source if the DC OCV on the
power source is capable of powering the
feeder. There are no switches or jumpers
to change.
4
The WCC features will not be available.
5
The voltage knob on front panel will be
non-functional.
6
When not welding the voltage display on
the wire feeder will alternate between CC
and open circuit voltage if the feeder is
set to CC.
7
While welding, the voltage display on the
wire feeder will display weld voltage at
the wire feeder.

When not welding and the wire feeder is
not associated with the WCC compatible
welding power source or WCC Control, the
voltmeter will alternate between three
dashes and open circuit voltage.
If the decimal points on the voltmeter are
blinking the wire feeder is trying to associate to a WCC Control or welding power
source. See Section 4-7 for details.
When the wire feeder is associated with a
WCC compatible welding power source or
WCC Control the voltmeter will alternate
between preset voltage and open circuit
voltage while idle. While welding the feeder
will display the actual weld voltage at the
wire feeder.
When connected to a non-WCC welding
power source the voltmeter will alternate
between three dashes and open circuit
voltage while idle. While welding the feeder
will display the actual weld voltage at the
wire feeder.
When the wire feeder is in CC mode the
voltmeter will alternate between CC and
open circuit voltage while idle. While welding the feeder will display the actual weld
voltage at the wire feeder.
Whether the wire feeder is associated or
not the voltage displayed while welding is
an average reading over a time span of 6

approximate. Refer to power source for actual amperage. To display Amperage (see
Section 4-15).
3 Wire Speed Control
Use control to adjust wire speed. Maximum wire speed may be limited by arc voltage.
4 Voltage Control
Used to adjust output voltage of welding
power source when wire feeder is associated with a WCC compatible welding power source or WCC Control. Voltage may be
adjusted while not welding.
Has no function when the wire feeder is not
associated with a WCC compatible welding power source or WCC Control.
5 Power Control Switch
6 Soft Start Switch
The Soft Start feature provides a smooth
start during most weld conditions. When
the trigger is pulled, the wire speed is
approximately 50% of the weld wire speed,
as set by the wire speed control knob. After
an arc is established, the wire speed increases to the weld wire speed.
When using small diameters wire, or with
inverter power sources, it may be necessary to turn switch off to obtain smooth
starts.
7 CC/CV Switch
Use switch to match feeder with the output
of the power source.
. The feeder will not associate with a
WCC Control or power source if the
switch is set to CC.
8 Trigger Hold Switch
Trigger hold allows operator to weld without holding gun trigger.
To use trigger hold function, place trigger
hold switch in the ON position.
The operator must hold the trigger for a
minimum of 2 seconds, but no longer than
6 seconds before releasing it. Welding will
continue when trigger is released.
To stop welding, press and release the trigger.
9 Jog/Purge Switch
Pressing the Jog switch allows the operator to jog wire without energizing the contactor or gas valve.
Pressing the Purge switch allows the operator to purge gas lines before welding and
to preset gas flow rate at the flowmeter.
After adjusting the switches, close and

Trouble
Weld voltage on display board is not
accurate.
Remedy
Weld voltage on the display board will show weld voltage at the feeder. Due to voltage drops in the weld
cables, weld voltage at the feeder will not match weld voltage at the welding power source. Due to averaging of weld voltage, if weld time is less than 8 seconds the displayed weld voltage at the feeder may
not be accurate.

Voltage displayed on feeder does not

Preset voltages between the feeder and welding power source should be within 0.5 volt of each other.
When associated to a WCC control, verify that the WCC control is configured properly (see WCC control
owner’s manual).
While welding the voltage displayed at the feeder is the weld voltage at the feeder. The voltage displayed
at the power source is the weld voltage at the power source. These two voltages will not match due to
voltage drops in the weld cables.
Due to averaging of the weld voltage, if weld time is less than 8 seconds the displayed weld voltage at

Error Indications
Error conditions are indicated by a “HLP” message on the (optional) display, or by the blinking of the Red LED on Motor Board PC1. To view the
Red LED, turn Off power source, remove shroud, and turn power source On. The Red LED blinks in a 2.5 second cycle. The number of blinks in
this period indicates the type of error. If an error condition does not exist on the motor board, the Red LED is on steady.
Communication Error
The communication error occurs 2.5 seconds after a loss of communication between the motor board and the meter board. The user may continue to weld with this error. The error may be cleared by turning power Off, waiting a minimum of two seconds, and turning power On.
Trigger Error
The trigger error occurs if the user has fed approximately 35 feet (10.7 meters) of wire without striking an arc, or if the weld wire is shorted during
the association process and DIP 4 on the front panel board is depressed toward the OPEN position. The error may be cleared by releasing the
trigger.
Motor Overload Error
The motor overload error can indicate that the motor has been drawing too much current for too long, To remedy this, reduce the wire feed speed
or the wire feeder torque load/duty cycle. The error may be cleared by turning power Off, waiting a minimum of two seconds, and turning power
On.
Bus Bar Overheat Error
The bus bar overheat error can be caused by the arc drawing too much current for too long. To remedy this, reduce the weld amperage or duty
cycle.

Items furnished by Miller, but manufactured by others,
such as engines or trade accessories. These items are
covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, if any.
Equipment that has been modified by any party other than

MILLER PRODUCTS ARE INTENDED FOR PURCHASE AND

TRAINED AND EXPERIENCED IN THE USE AND
MAINTENANCE OF WELDING EQUIPMENT.
In the event of a warranty claim covered by this warranty, the

service facility as determined by Miller. Therefore no
compensation or reimbursement for transportation costs of any
kind will be allowed.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE REMEDIES
PROVIDED HEREIN ARE THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE

ANY AND ALL EQUIPMENT FURNISHED BY MILLER IS
EXCLUDED AND DISCLAIMED BY MILLER.
Some states in the U.S.A. do not allow limitations of how long an
implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion of incidental, indirect,
special or consequential damages, so the above limitation or
exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty provides specific
legal rights, and other rights may be available, but may vary from
state to state.
In Canada, legislation in some provinces provides for certain
additional warranties or remedies other than as stated herein, and
to the extent that they may not be waived, the limitations and
exclusions set out above may not apply. This Limited Warranty
provides specific legal rights, and other rights may be available,
