Hobart Handler® 190 MIG Welder 500554

The Hobart Handler® 190 MIG welder is spool gun ready with the optional SpoolRunner™ 100 spool gun. Now welders will have a lost cost option to weld aluminum with a small frame MIG welder from Hobart.

Powerful and portable, the Handler® 190 MIG welder delivers 190 amps of MIG welding power in a small package. It is capable of welding 24 gauge to 5/16 steel and handles a variety of materials including mild steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Operating on 230 volt input power, this wire welder includes everything you need to weld with flux cored self-shielding wire (great for outdoor welding projects) or solid wire (just add preferred wire and shielding gas.)

The Handler® 190 features a 7-position voltage. These added settings create a welding arc that more perfectly matches metal thickness and wire diameter than any competitor in its class. The improved arc means less spatter, professional bead appearance, excellent penetration and minimal post-weld cleanup.

Convenience features include internal storage area for spare tips and a "no tools" quick-change drive roll system with dual grooves to make changing wire diameter easy. A self-resetting thermal overload system protects the Handler 190 in the toughest welding applications.

  • MIG (GMAW)
  • Flux Cored (FCAW) (gas and self-shielded)

    Auto Body

  • 7 voltage selections, enhanced magnetics and infinite wire feed speed control offers easier fine control of the output parameters for improved arc performance with less spatter for a better bead appearance and less cleanup
  • Welds 24 gauge up to 5/16 inch steel
  • Spool gun control circuitry is built-in to the Handler® 190 for the optional SpoolRunner™ 100 direct plug-in spool gun. Alleviates feeding problems with soft aluminum wires. Also useable with mild or stainless steel welding wires.
  • Proven built-in wire feeder with quick-release drive roll lever
  • Built-in contactor eases use and is an excellent safety feature which makes wire electrically "cold" when not welding
  • Easy access to polarity changeover includes storage holes for spare tips
  • Dual groove drive rolls make it easy to switch between .023/.025 in. (0.6 mm) and .030 - .035 in. (0.8 - 0.9 mm) wire
  • Self-resetting thermal overload and motor protection

    May 5, 2017
    Can this machine weld 3/8" think metal? I'm debating between this unit or the millermatic 211. I will just be using around the house and small projects. Thanks in advance.
    1 Answer
    The Hobart Handler 190 is rated for 5/16" so we would not suggest this machine if you are looking to consistently weld 3/8". The maximum material thickness for the Millermatic 211 is 3/8" but that will be will multiple passes. If you are looking for a machine to weld 3/8" all day long, we would suggest moving to a machine with a max material thickness of 1/2".

    Great welder
    I ordered this welder a little more than a year ago. It has held up fine, but the only problems I had were with the MIG gun and the ground clamp. Don't let this discourage you from buying this little welder, as mine has held up fine and has a smooth arc. The MIG gun, after a couple months, didn't feed very well. I replaced with one from another manufacturer and my welder is working great! Same with the ground clamp, it bent, and didn't have too much clamping force, so I bought a strong one. In all, this welder is a great value. Be sure to buy one with an aluminum drive system though. Get the one with the silver ground clamp because it has the aluminum drive system rather than the plastic drive system. I can produce great welds with this machine. This welder welds 3/16" steel no problem. You can do 1/4". I would say this machine does 3/16" comfortably only. (Of course thinner metal is fine) This is an excellent beginner welder and would definitely recommend it! Pros- Affordable Made in U.S.A. Quality Smooth arc Cons- Sub-par ground clamp Sub-par MIG gun Can get this welder with a plastic drive system if not careful
    ProsAffordable Made in USA Transformer Heavy duty Welds nice

    All as desribed; Fast ship, look forward for future buisness
    This unit was an upgrade from our 110 volt Hobart unit, the ability to handle heavier gauge material in 1 pass is great!
    ProsReliable, ease of use.

    great buy
    This is the best buy on the net. Standard shiping was fast. Setup was quick and simple and i was welding in no time. It come with .030 flux cored , but i installed a 10# roll of .030 sold wire. It was easy to set up the Gas (bottle sold seperatly). This is a great welder and it makes a beginner look like a pro. My stick welder is rarely going to get any use now.

    Cyberweld had the best price ANYWHERE! I ordered on a Tuesday, and by Friday it was delivered to my door. I would definitely recommend them and will use them for any future products! The reason for only 4 of 5 stars was due to Hobart's fault, not the sellers. My power cord came loose during shipping and I had to take the cover off the machine and re-secure one of the power leads, it took a total of 5 minutes but it shouldn't have happened in the first place. In Hobar'ts defense, they have spectacular customer service and have rectified the issue. I am a very happy customer from both places.
