A Miller-branded welding machine has been recalled by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) due to a construction fault.

The welder is used in commercial construction applications and was sold in Queensland, Victoria and South Australia from June this year (3rd June 2008).

The bolts holding the lift eye can fail when being lifted, according to the suppliers, Welding Industries of Australia.

The affected model weighs 172kg and is used to cut precision metal fabrication in applications including maintenance and repair, light and heavy manufacturing, aerospace, shipbuilding, automotive and vocational.

The full product name is the Miller Syncrowave 250DX AC/DC TIG Welding Machine, with part number MR907197, and serial number range LJ030001L to LJ301116L affected.

Resellers of the product will contact customers directly to organise a replacement unit, according to a notice from the ACCC.
