Hobart Champion™ Elite Welder 500562

The Hobart Champion Elite welder is now more quiet than previous models, yet still packs up to 225 amps of DC welding output. The Champion Elite is an 11,000 watt AC generator and DC stick welder that can weld up to 1/2" steel in a single pass.

The Hobart Champion™ Elite welder/generator is designed to be a jobsite workhorse. It features a rugged, fully enclosed case which provides a protective barrier and lowers noise. All receptacles on the ELITE feature push button reset circuit breakers. Auxiliary power while welding gives you the capability to run other equipment (lights, grinders) at the same time you are welding. With the quick set current control, it is easy to set up, provides smooth arc starts and maintains optimum arc characteristics

    I purchased this as an upgrade to my other gas driven 1971 Hobart unit with a smaller generator. The GFCI outlet indicated it was defective out of the box, but Customer Service had one delivered in a couple days-the alternative was to return it or ship it to a repair facility. I have owned this product over a year with no problems and it is much nicer and quieter to weld with than my older 42 year old unit. The unit has a fast response time. I waited for the EPA certified unit which seals the tank and keeps your fuel good for longer periods. As a standby generator, I recently tested the generator at full load at my farthest receptacle and the hertz and voltage was right on the money. This Hobart was substantially cheaper than the competitor (who actually makes this unit) and the extra money, to me, was worth the welding capability and the HD engine over a generator only unit. Many engines on generator only and smaller units do not have cast iron sleeves or HD engines, so your life expectancy is limited. I believe this unit will go the distance and I too can pass the unit on to my next generation.
    Pros:
    Quality, Service, EPA Certified, Price, Looks, Kohler Engine, Engine Meter, Enclosure, AC and DC Welds

    By Vic Lippa from Sarasota, Florida on January 6, 2014
    I have two questions:

    1) one of the planned usages for this product is to power my workshop in the case of a power outage. My plan is to use a transfer switch, connected to the unit with a pigtail from the transfer switch with a plug on the end. Would the generator require rewiring to do this? Ive done some reading about neutral wire issues with other generators.

    2) is it possible to order the unit, say today, and have it delivered on 28 January?

    Thanks, I do a good deal of welding and always have favored Hobart equipment.

    By Customer Service on January 7, 2014

    Answer:
    The Hobart Champion Elite Welder 500562 comes equipped with a 120/240 VAC, 50 A
    (NEMA 14-50) receptacle.. This should provide you with all you will need.. You may need to purchase a Full KVA Plug Kit 119172 if you want to disconnect from the machine using a plug connection..

    If you need delivery on a specific date it is best to wait to order until you are closer to that date

    Can I run my Lincoln sp 180t mig off of this machine?

    By Customer Service on June 14, 2013

    Answer:
    The Hobart Champion Elite Welder 500557 is capable of producing 9500 watts of power and should be able to run a welder of the size of your Lincoln 180t without any problem.. The power input plug on your welder should be a 6-50p style in order to plug the machine into the 230 volt receptacle on the front of the Champion
