Welding/Miller diesel welder


I have a Miller diesel welding machine/generator (Model no. AEAD-200 LE) that has been sitting in my warehouse unused for at least 8 years - need to sell it. Bought it at an auction many years ago and used it only a couple of times. Where can I get specifications for the machine and a rough idea of what it's worth. I know that obviously, the value depends on the condition, but if everything works, how much can I reasonably ask?

I personally own that same machine.
Are you sure it's a diesel?
Mine has a gasoline Onan engine.
Flush out the case and fill with new oil, clean the gas tank, fuel lines and fuel filter then see if you can fire it up.
if it runs, it's worth around $800 - $900. They are good machines, but if the engine is bad, the machine is scrap.
Onan engines live forever if maintained, but they are not worth rebuilding. There is no replacement engine that fits on that machine. The problem is that the rear bearing for the generator armature is the engine.
