Bought this for my welder and it works perfect. While I did not really have any particular expectations I am certainly not disappointed in it. It is well built and supports up to quite a large wire gauge. I am using it for a 20 AMP welder so only have 12AWG wire going into it but it could handle up to 4AWG. Fits well into a standard single-gang box with no problems.

Another great product from Leviton, this 220V receptable did not disappoint. Installs easily and performs as expected.
Nothing negative to say about it.

This is a 50A receptacle. What else is there to say? The screw terminals work fine, the plug fits nice and tight... Buy one if you need one.

I had looked at several welding supply outlets as well as Home Depot and Lowe's with no luck. Then I looked on Amazon. Success

Not much to say bout Leviton; they make good quality outlets. This 250 volt outlet is no exception. Works well.

The first time I attempted to plug in the matching Leviton 931 30/50 Amp, 250 Volt, Plug into this receptacle, the housing popped apart, rendering this item unusable. The two piece housing is held together, through the center, with a single rivet. The rivet pulled apart the first time I plugged in the plug. The internal terminals are held in the housing by a backplate, that is held by the rivet. Once the rivet loosens, the backplate gets pushed out along with the terminals whenever the plug terminals are pushed in. So, as is, the plug terminals could never fully seat in the receptacle terminals. But, even if it had stayed assembled, I still couldn't have used it as is. I purchased the "Preferred Industries MQ-B50-3 1-Gang Metal Box" that shows up on the item description page as being often purchased together. I would not recommend doing so. The receptacle is too long/deep for that box. When attempting to mount inside the box, the receptacle housing contacts the internal "Ground" mounting stud. Further, even if one turned the receptacle to an angle so that it cleared the stud, it still is too long to allow flush mounting of the receptacle plate to the box. The raised, rear threaded port of the box protrudes to deeply into the box to allow the receptacle to flush mount. So, I would advise not buying the two together. Given my poor impression of the matching plug, I'm not at all impressed by the Leviton brand, which as I understand was once counted among the best. Returning this item and going with a different brand.

Wired this thing up with 8 gauge stranded. Blammo, it conducts electricity. The fatty extension cord for my welder plugs in / slides out easily enough. I'd recommend and buy again. What more is there to say? It's an electrical outlet...

Half the price of what my local True Value wanted for the receptacles they had on hand. They didn't have this one...and I didn't ask how much it would be to special order. Fits and works great.
