    If you need a small welder.., this is it !!

    0 5/5 Allen - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hobart 500559 Handler Wire Welder (Misc.) Just recently bought this welder to do an auto project I have. I have searched for over 4 months to find the best one for the buck and since I work at a auto shop, and they use this to do exhaust work, it was the obvious choice to make. It took a couple of days to get it set up correctly. I am extremely new at welding. After setting it up and trying it out, I will say this welder welds like a champ. Heck, it even made me look like a pro. I would say read the directions..carefully !!. There is alot of tips and must-need-to-know info in them. And for the price that was offered here, you can't beat it. If you want a 110v welder.., don't even hesitate. BUY THIS WELDER !!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 5, 2013

    Nice Welder

    0 5/5 go-dwr - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hobart 500559 Handler Wire Welder (Misc.) Hobart makes a good welder is why I choose this unit. It is only 110 volt but is fine for the smaller projects that I do. This model 500559 Handler 140 is the upgrade to the Handler 140 model 500500 which gives you a bigger opening ground clamp and a metal gear on the drive motor. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 30, 2013

I have owned many welding machines 110 units and larger. For the dollar this is a great welder! No plastic ,only hot when you pull the trigger and a pretty consistent weld. I had the same size unit except Miller and it cost $300 dollars more.

    Hobart 500421 Stickmate LX 235 AC/DC

    First of all the price along with the free shipping is the best I've seen. It arrived very quickly, several days before the expected delivery date. However it did sustain some cosmetic damage in shipping. It was obviously dropped at least once and the box was pretty rough looking by the time I recieved it. I decided I could live with the cosmetic stuff and didn't go to the point of reporting it. I think you almost have to expect some kind of damage in shipping considering the weight, 120 lbs.delivered to your door by some poor UPS guy. Anyway, aside from that, the unit looks pretty good. I fired it up and ran a few beads with 7018 and 6011 rod and it worked beautifully. In my opinion just as well if not better than the older model miller thunderbolt 225/150 ac/dc unit I'd been recently using. The front mounted switch to change from ac to dc seems to be of good quality. Though the plastic crank handle for adjusting the amperage seems a little flimsy. I opend the cover to look... 4/5 M.

    Outstanding SMAW Welder for Light Industrial and Homeowner Fabrication / Repairs!

    I purchased this welder to replace a cheap Harbor Freight unit that I overworked and killed. (It was not very well built to say the least) So after scouring the internet for information I settled on this unit and purchased it locally. The quality of the welds that I made improved immediately. Granted I consider myself an amateur at best, the difference between the Hobart and Harbor Freight unit was night and day. Rarely do I ever have to exceed 100A output DC for the majority of my work so the 20% duty cycle is not a concern. If you do lots of welding with electrodes greater than 1/8" you probably should consider a higher output unit such as the Miller Thunderbolt 300/200 or larger.Final Thoughts...You wont be disappointed in a quality USA Made product. The internals are very well built, although I would have rather seen copper windings on the transformer (they're aluminum) given the current cost of copper I can live with that.A few things that are... 5/5 Mike - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hobart 500421 Stickmate LX 235 AC Stick (SMAW) Arc Welding Power Source (Tools & Home Improvement) Just got the welder out and used it today, so far so good. it's a decent welder thus far, as long as it keeps running for a few years I'll be happy. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because the stinger and ground clamp are a little on the cheap side. I'm definitely going to go get more sturdy ones. Also the amperage dial is a little flimsy and there is some play in it before it engages, however I burnt a few rods and dialed it in so no biggie as long as it makes adjustments the numbers and the play in the handle really don't matter for me. From my understanding this is essentially a Miller machine with a few "cheaper" parts inside which is probably why it's about $200 less than the Miller counterpart. However Miller has a good reputation so I would imagine that it would live up to it, but time will tell. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 31, 2010

    Great welder.

This review is from: Hobart Handler 500554001 190 with SpoolRunner 100 (Tools & Home Improvement) Would recommend this to any home professional or a small shop. Good wire feed consistency the regulator works great and it has plenty of power. I've welded 1/2 a36 with full penetration. The spool runner is also great, remember you will need a different shielding gas for aluminum than for steel. Only complaint is the ground clamp was a little cheap. Easily replaced for about 30 dollars. though. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 1, 2012

    Hobart Handler 190+ isBest Value In the Market

    I bought this Hobart 190 Handler with Spool Runner 100 to ugrade from my small 130Amp mig welder of a different prominent blue colored brand of welder. The difference was night and day!I started out on an aluminum MIG welding project. I had never done Aluminum before and I found the spoolrunner very easy to use for even a beginner, and the performance and weld quality was good after I wrked with it for awhile. The suggested settings on the machine for all materials are "close". I also found the spoolrunner a very well designed and high quality piece, but read the instructions!!! Seriously.The best part (even better than the spool gun) is the steel welding capability.This is the night and day part. The very first steel bead I layed with this machine was the best weld bead I had ever put down in my life. The suggested settings were PERFECT. The wirefeed stability is PERFECT. The arc stability I found to be nearly as good as your average Lincoln, which is... 5/5 Joe Wirkus - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Auto Arc 130

    0 5/5 Magellan "snakehips" (Georgia, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hobart 500550 Auto Arc 130 Wire Feed MIG Welding Kit (Tools & Home Improvement) This is an excellent deal on a quality homeowner welder. The gas kit is a good thing to have, but the helmet and especially the cart are of dubious value. The cart is just too low and dinky. The included helmet is fine for an extra, but too dark to use inside. I'll save it to allow someone who wants to observe use.The welder itself is made by Miller/Hobart, and is made in the U.S.A. It is high-powered for a 130 amp model. I feel this is a very conservative rating. The welder comes ready to weld with fluxcore wire. The cart has space for and a safety chain for tank. I thing an 80 cu. ft. tank will fix nicely. I'll probably alter the cart and add another shelf above the two that are there. The regulator is another U.S.A. product and seems to be of great quality. It also comes with additional .030 contact tips and a nozzle. The gun is rather short at 8'. I am happy with my purchase. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 29, 2011

    It seems anyone worth their salt has a Miller or a Hobart.

    I bought this from Amazon warehouse deals for $344 overnighted to my house.A+ for amazon.got it out of the box, immediately spent 20 minutes putting the car together.. its a cart. nothing special, but I havent had any problems it it at all. if it gets wobbly later, I will just weld it all together.moving on to the welder its self, the unit is superbly sturdy and looks nice. the included wire is flux core which I deem the anti-christ and would only use on out-door or other not important welds. I immedeately went to my local welding supply store, got a spool of .030 alloy steel wire and a cylinder of Argon CO2 mix, popped on a new groung clamp and tested it out on some spare 1/8" steel.the welds are BEAUTIFUL. this unit honestly does the job as well as by friend's Handler 140. the machine has plenty of power to penetrate 1/8" steel and get a nice, consistent weld.I welded a but joint 8" and the machine, even at the highest... 5/5 Erik A.

Just cut a 3/8" hardened steel shredder blade. Didn't think I could do it in a single pass, but it cut it like butter. Had to pierce it to cut bolt holes & had no problems. The dual voltage plug is the main reason I bought this model, & I couldn't be more pleased. I use a Harbor Freight inline disposable drier cartridge. For about $6 & lasts at least an hour of cutting. I also use 1/4" MDF for making templates. This is a "Cool Tool". 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 8, 2011
