You get what you pay for with this cart. Although the materials and general construction are acceptable, the hardware that's shipped with this unit is complete trash. The unit came with only one safety chain. If you want to chain the cylinder to both upper and lower brackets you're on your own. The bolts that come with it are not made out of steel. They can't be. I've seen plastics that are harder and more durable. I was using a 1/4 ratchet for assembly and I stripped the threads off of one of the bolts.
In the end, you'd be hard pressed to source just the materials for the price of the cart. My plan is to weld the cart together replacing the hokey bolts and add a couple of hooks for cable management (the cart doesn't come with any).
I complained to Miller about this Chinese junk. They sent me a replacement cart. The pieces of the replacement cart actually fit together. It is still pretty cheesy though.
The cart is -just- long enough for a Miller Diversion 165, so a larger/longer welder may be too long for this cart. I have a smaller (33cf) tank which is about all you would want for this cart, and they supply only a very dubious twisted-link chain to retain it. I wound up upgrading the tank retention as well.
One of the biggest problems is the packaging, I think: it's that "Harbor Freight" style the styrofoam, which is packed pellets and makes a huge mess, never survives the whole trip to your house, and is probably why parts are missing.
Overall, a decent platform from which to -begin- a cart. If you happen to luck out and get all the parts it'd be a three star. If they gave you a decent strap or chain system to stop the tank from tipping over, a four.
Disregarding turning radius, the cart is sufficiently sturdy and easy to assemble. Note that I use the cart for a Lincoln SP185 MIG and bottle.
Welded nuts stripped with mild tightening, the large wheels have no bearings and they chatter. The tank holder just snaps into place, no bolts. i can't believe Hobart would sell junk like this. Don't waste your money!
