You gotta have one of these!!

Hobart is American made, assembled in the same building as many Miller components, so stow the "Red/Blue" pride noise. I bought a great machine at a lesser price than Blue, period. Arrived from Cyberweld (in Jersey) to CA. in five days with free shipping! There is a big plus for me. Packaging is factory, but no damage in transit (FedEx). I already had my 75/25 gas in bottle ready, so set up was all of an hour because I "actually" read the instructions.(crazy I know but Hey, this is my first welder purchase. Both voltages performed flawlessly on mild steel to 1/4" thickness. Using the Hobart solid wire, 10# spool, good stuff. Consider testing each setting to confirm wire feed speed, ea. machine is a little different. I've built Table, cart, several HD brackets and hangers. It's like a hot glue gun for steel, easy strong, works perfectly!
- Robust construction, made in the USA, dual voltages for use at varied locations, simple operation.
- Weight of the machine, near 90 lbs.
