Hobart Handler® 190 w/SpoolRunner™ 100 Spool Gun Welder Package 500554001

The new Hobart Handler® 190 MIG welder is spool gun ready with the INCLUDED 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.

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

    Can this Hobart use the Miller 150 gun for aluminum.
    1 Answer
    Miller advises that you cannot use the Miller Spoolmate 150 on the Hobart Handler 190 MIG Welder Package 500554001 as the pin connections are different.

    from Deer park Texas asked:
    June 20, 2015
    Can a longer mig gun be installed on this machine? I realize that with the wire diameters on the smaller side this might pose a problem, but I only use .030 solid wire. I previously owned a hobart iron man 210 with the longer gun and was used to having the extra reach.
    1 Answer
    Hobart indicates that they do not offer a longer gun for use on the Hobart Handler 190 MIG Welder Package 500554001. They also advise that if a longer gun is installed on this machine the extra length will overload the wire drive motor and cause it to trip the motor circuit breaker

    How long will an 80CF cylinder of 75/25 last ( in minutes of welding time ) when using this welder ? thank you
    1 Answer
    Hobart recommends that when mig welding with the Hobart Handler 190 MIG Welder Package 500554001 that your flow gauge should be set at 20 to 30 CFH. With the gauge set at 20CFH you could weld continually without stopping for 4 Hours before the cylinder was empty. This however is totally unrealistic since nobody welds continually without stopping. So there really is no concrete answer to your question. It all depends on how much welding you will be doing and on how long you will be doing it..

    when the trigger is released........does the gas stop immediately? The welder I'm replacing has a delay approx. 3 -5 sec which is costing me a lot of gas ($). It's a 175, and we do a lot of tacking / stitching. We also had trouble with the solenoid not releasing and the trigger on the torch having to be tickled to activate the solenoid. These are the issue we have had.....is the 190 handler going to be ok for us ? Thanks bob Bennett 573 776 5924 (cst)
    1 Answer
    When you release the gun trigger on the Hobart Handler 190 MIG Welder the gas flow stops.. There is no preset post flow. The Handler 190 should work fine for you as long as you use it in within the parameters it was designed for

    how does this compare to millermatic 212 for quality and durability
    1 Answer
    Comparing the Hobart Handler 190 MIG Welder Package 500554001 with the Millermatic 212 MIG Welder Auto-Set 907405 you will find several differences.. Basically the 212 is a more heavy duty machine than the Handler..The 212 has a 60% duty cycle at the rated output of 160 amps.. The Handler has a 30% duty cycle at the rated output of 130 amps..The 212 has a max output of 210 amps ..The Handler has a max output of 190 amps..The 212 has an Auto Set feature to simplify setting up the wire feed speed and voltage based on wire size and the thickness of the material being welded.. It also has infinitely variable controls for manual set up of these parameters. The Handler has tap type range switch for voltage control. and an infinitely variable control for wire feed speed.. Because of these differences the 212 can more accurately set the welding parameters. ..The drive roll system in the 212 is more substantial than the Handler . The 212 uses the Miller m-25 mig gun while the Handler uses the Miller m-100 gun.. Basically the 212 is a more heavy duty machine.. There is of course a price to pay for the heavy duty features.. The 212 is priced at $1753.00 while the Handler is priced at $851.. The old saying "you get what you pay for " hold true here

    Great machine for the hobbyist. No issues after a month of use & 2 11# spools of wire. Haven't tried the spool gun yet but looks decent.
    ProsSmall, versatile & priced decent.
    ConsDon't care for the amp power clicker switch, would like it to be infinitely adjustable but gets the job done. Would like to see it be able to run off 120v.

    Great welder for the money
    Smooth starts and very little splatter using the recommended settings on the panel, and no leaks when hooking up the bottle either (my last welder leaked internally, and required me going through the machine and replacing on of the barbed connections). Would definitely purchase again

    I've only used solid wire with 75/25 mix, and haven't used the spool gun yet so I won't leave my opinion on its ability to use flux core or the spool gun.
    ProsGreat machine for the money. Comparable to similar amperage red and blue boxes, but for less money. Included spool gun makes it an even better deal since those are $200+ separately. Very smooth and plenty of power. Ill have this welder for a long time
    ConsI forget the technical name, but the knob for controlling the level of power "clicks" on each setting and isn't infinitely adjustable. Not a big deal since there are 7 settings, but that may be the only real difference over the more expensive machines.

    Very satisfied
    I've been doing auto restoration and and hot rod building for 40 years. I had a Linde 160 wire feed machine and wanted to up-grade to a spool gun, only to find out that spool guns are not available for that machine. I then ordered my Hobart Handler 190 from Cyberweld because they had a very good price and good ratings. My welder arrived quicker than expected however on my first test I had no wire feed on one of the settings. I was bummed and thought I might need to return it. I called Hobart Tech Support and was EXTREMELY satisfied with the ease in which my problem was handled by a very knowledgeable technician. I believe his name was Keith. It was a very simple fix (a wire had fallen off inside). The machine now works absolutely perfectly. Again very happy with Cyberweld and Hobart.

    My first job was to replace my neighbor"s golf cart battery box which was totally rotted away. I purchased a stick of 1.5x.125 angle iron, and after taking measurements, & cutting the pieces to length, I began welding. The Handler 190 worked perfectly. I used 75/25 Argon/CO2 gas and ER70S-6 solid wire. The job came out great!! Can't wait to use the included spool gun!

    Really like it
    The welder is a quality unit. I used the flux core wire included to start and it leaves a lot of splatter. However, I didn't buy this to use flux core wire anyway. So, I hooked it up to shielding gas and the welds look great assuming you don't have the garage door open which blow away your shielding gas. I am a rookie and learning but can't complain. The guide inside the lid is great and switching wire, polarity, voltage or wire speed is simple. One advantage of this machine is that the wire feed speed is infinitely adjustable so you don't click in to one setting or another. You can fine tune it to your needs.
    ProsQuality Flexibility ( wire size, flux core or solid wire, stainless, aluminum or steel) Ease of use and setup All around machine

    Outstanding Performance!
    I've used many different types/brands of welders in my experiences with welding. This is a GREAT welding package for the money... At, $851.00 and free shipping, YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THIS PURCHASE. The welder was extremely easy to setup. As a matter of fact, I didn't have to make but two adjustments, and that was for wire spool tension and changing the tip that was sent with the machine from .030" to .035" for the 10# spool of FC wire. Other than that, everything was perfect just the way I received it, i.e. wire tension, drive rollers... It welds great, and produces great results with the flux cored wire... I haven't had a chance to use the Spool Gun that came with the package, but I'm sure that it will follow suit with the welder and weld nicely as well. The only thing I wish that the package came with is a trial size spool of both Aluminum and Stainless Steel wire for the Spool Gun. It did however, come with a trial size spool of .030" steel wire and extra tips. KEEP IN MIND, if you are going to be using a heavier or lighter gauge wire than .030", you will need to purchase extra tips. It only comes with .030" tips.
    ConsNOTHING YET! Recommend putting different size tips in package. i.e .030",.035, .040" and putting trial size spools of aluminum and/or stainless steel wire for spool gun.

    great welder at a great price
    I decided I wanted a spool gun and after figuring out it was going to cost at least $500 to get one for my miller 250. I figured I might as well buy this unit and get a second welder too, for an added $300. Seems like a solid machine so far and will work great for me since I don't plan on welding aluminum over 1/4 inch.

    Perfect for what I need!
    I'm welding material that is generally less than 1/4" and so far this little welder has been perfect. I use it for projects around the house and not commercially.

    Additionally Cyberweld was great! I ordered the welder, then realized that they are located right where Sandy came ashore (about 2 weeks before). I was worried that the order would be delayed. It wasn't. Shipped the next day!
    ProsEasy setup Good manual Consumables available near my house
    ConsShort power cord. Switch for choosing mig gun or spool gun needs to be moved, it gets pushed when I adjust feed roller pressure. Now I know to check it but first time it happened I had to chase down the issue.
