    Hobart Trek 180 Welder

    Absolutely outstanding welder. Choose your wire carefully as it seems to performmuch better with .30 wire and smaller. Simply plan on making multiple passes andyou will find that the welds are very good quality. I wouldn't bother setting itup with gas as it's endurance simply isn't worth the trouble of all the extra baggage.It really shines as a flux core wire emergency welder which can take on some of thefieldwork usually reserved for big gas powered welder. Just having it sitting inmy work truck gives me such peace of mind as it can certainly tack together mostequipment problems well enough to finish the day and then properly repair it. Hassaved me many thousands in just the few months I've owned it.I have found I can get a 1/2" weld about 4-6" long on a single charge. Takes a bunchof passes and cleaning between them due to the light wire but we're only talking about15 to 20 minutes of time to put a down... 5/5 Grayson - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Better than advertised!

    I was on the fence for a while as to if the Trek 180 was really worth the money and would actually serve my needs. I worried that the duty cycle and battery life might make this welder more of a novelty than a useful welder.My primary reason for considering the Trek was it's off the grid welding capability. My family and friends are in to sand cars and nearly every trip some one breaks some thing and the car is down for the rest of trip. Usually a simple weld job would get the car back in to play and save the trip.Given the cost of fuel alone to haul a trailer full of toys to the dunes the cost of the Trek 180 is irrelevant! Nothing worse than going for a week long trip and having a break down on the first day.I considered a corded 110 welder and borrowed a Lincoln 140 to see if I could run if off my Honda 2000i generator (great little geni), but it was not near enough power neither was the 2500 watt inverter in the toyhauler. So a corded 110 welder... 5/5 Karen C. Ludlow - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    very awesome!!!

    hi! i bought this welder because i needed a portable welder that i could use without being plugged in. i live in a 3rd floor apartment in brooklyn, so i need to weld outside and i don't have access to power when i'm out on the sidewalk. it was a toss up between this, the broco goweld, and the readywelder, but this won out because the other two aren't adjustable for voltage (unless adding or removing batteries counts) and with the other two, you will need to provide the batts and a way to charge them, and carry them. this one is a little more expensive, but i think it's worth it. in fact if you don't already have 2 or 3 other batteries around and a charger this might even end up being cheaper!!i just took it out and welded the exhaust back together on my car. since it's fairly thin metal i had it turned down low, i probably did about 10 minutes worth of actual welding and the battery didn't die. the welds look good (for a beginner trying to use flux-core on thin, rusty exhaust... 5/5 mr. burgers "burgerking" (on the internet) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
