    Hello

    Thanks

    Details say the Hobart ironman 230 mig welder comes with .030/.035 in. dual groove drive roll. Does it also come ready to run .045 wire as well?

    Answer:
    The Hobart Ironman 230 MIG Welder 500536
    comes ready to run .030 and .035 wire.. If you want to run .045 you would need to order the Miller 079596 .045 drive roll set and you would also need to change the gun liner size to handle the .045 wire . The liner part number is Miller 194012.. Also you will need .045 contact tips Miller part number 000069

    THanks,
    Mary

    Hobart ironman 230 mig welder
    April 28, 2016
    I love this welder ,it is so smooth and I weld alot. I have had this ironman for about 3 months and it has been great. Cyberweld got this unit to me very fast and I am very happy.I am trying to save what hearing I have left, but I remove my earplugs just to hear the weld. I have a miller mig ,a forney ac/dc 235 stick which I also love and a thermal dynamics plasma cutter. Cyberweld will help you for anything, thank you.I will be buying from Cyberweld more in the future, they called me during the shipping process to let me know about my shipping status. I was never in the dark......buy from Cyberweld.

    Great Welder, Great Price
    April 14, 2016
    After welding with smaller welders with numerous failed welds and just ugly beads, I was fed up. The Ironman 230 is at a reasonable price point and is a solid product. I'm a novice welder and the Ironman was helping me lay down beautiful beads with great penetration right from the get-go. No failures, even when I didn't do as well as I could have. Initially, I was hesitant to fork over the money, but I'm very happy that I did. The settings chart has been spot-on so far and the welder is very easy to set up. I also like that the welder can handle 2, 10, & 33 lb. spools. There are a couple of dislikes, which are that the voltage adjustment is stepped and that the trigger is touchy and I found myself depressing it accidentally with gloves on. Cyberweld's service and shipping couldn't be better. The welder was shipped direct for free from Hobart with liftgate service included. What a relief not to have additional costs tacked onto the price. Overall, I'm very happy and will happily purchase another Hobart machine and continue to do business with Cyberweld.
    Pros:
    Lots of power Beautiful welds Easy set-up
    Cons:
    Voltage adjustment is stepped Trigger is touchy and takes time to get used to

    Solid Machine - Suited Name "Ironman"
    March 19, 2016
    Got this machine about 2 years ago and have been a happy welder since then, I do a lot of fabrication and put this baby to work and has never once complained, have never exceeded its duty cycle even running high numbers, without a doubt it is commercial grade at minimum. I also got the spool package and have been welding alum and stainless with spool and welds beautifully.
    Pros:
    Ironworker Easy to operate feels sturdy and heavy gauge used in machine Holds the biggest bottle and moves around with no issues
    Cons:

    Hobart Ironman 230 Mig, and Cyberweld Top Notch!
    November 28, 2015
    I ordered the Hobart Ironman 230, to use on some of my Mild Steel .134 wall Chassis Builds, I also use the Hobart EZ Tig I purchased from Cyberweld for my 4130 Builds. The Hobart Ironman 230 Mig, gets the job done easily, as does the Hobart EZ Tig on my 4130 builds. Hobarts Quality and Warranty give me peace of mind, and Cyberwelds Prices and Fast Shipping are the Best!

    Ironman 230
    June 19, 2015
    I had a mig 230 for years and it worked good for what I've been working on but I've been doing larger and thicker material lately so I made the move to step up to a larger welder. I purchased an Ironman 230 and now that I've used it I wish I had done it a long time ago. It has plenty of power to do the job. It's rated for up to 1/2 in. thick material and it will do that and more.
    Pros:
    Plenty of power, nice built in cart with bottle holder and the price is right.
    Cons:
    Power cord is too sort.

    Hobart 230
    August 24, 2012
    I hooked the welder up as directed and started welding. The gun jammed in 5 minutes and would not let the wire pass through it. After numerous attempts to get the wire to feed through the gun, I called Hobart and they are sending out a new gun. Nice looking welder and seems to weld fine, but 5 minutes. I really expected more from Hobart than that. My last Hobart lasted 25 years without a problem, could be a fluke I guess.
    Pros:
    Looks nice, easy to operate with a large user's guide on cover, nice heavy duty looking controls, price fairly for it capabilities.
    Cons:
    The gun jamming in 5 minutes is a little hard to take.
