I would agree with Trainwire and the rest who have said
He's doing site work with a wired welder????
That would be like me going to a job without my Pliers and screwdriver. A welder should be able to weld with out assistance don't you think?
Any contractor doing this kind of short term jobs at various sites should have a welder/generator.
On long term jobs we will usually wire in welders for the mechanical contractors but they still have a welder/generator outside on the truck or trailer.
Around here more trades are bring there own power, A demo contractor we work with has a large generator to run a "Brock" (remote operated jack hammer, backhoe)
At the Job I am at now the cement cutting contractor brought a large unit to power the hydraulic pumps that run his saws.
They probably got tired of the high bills to hook these up temp, 100 Amps 480 Volt 3P.
