220 - 110/220 question

We are installing a hydraulic door on a job. The pump has a 220 volt (as in 3 wire, 2 hot and a ground). The only power we have is a Briggs 5500/8550 generator. The generator has a 110/220 30 amp outlet. Is it possible to wire straight 220 to the 2 hots and the ground with no neutral connected to use as temporary power for the door? And would the load rating stay 30 amp or 60 (30 for each leg)?

Yes. You just don't connect the neutral.

It would be 30 amps not 60 amps. You don't add the legs.
