It’s able to operate on 115- and 120-volt, 20-amp home circuits, and the broad output range of 25 to 140 amps allows for the welding of 24 gauge up to ¼-inch steel. Four output voltage settings with wire-feed tracking make the unit easy to set and adjust for different materials and thicknesses, and its integrated wire feeder with quick-release tension lever delivers positive feed with adjustable tension, which provides easy access for threading wire. The built-in contactor serves as an optimal safety feature that makes wire electrically "cold" until the trigger is pulled. Dual-groove drive rolls make it easy to switch between .023/.025-inch (0.6-mm) and .03/.035-inch (0.8/ 0.9-mm) wire.

This is a fully functional MIG welder that runs on 115V (20 amps) current. It is well made and I haven't had any problems with durability or malfunctions, it is quite reliable in that respect. It is quite portable and I like the safety switch which is only live when you're actually welding. I also called support once (about the liner) and they were prompt and helpful. It does have one tiny annoyance that the door latch is made of plastic and doesn't usually latch properly, but since the door hangs down when closed anyway, it really doesn't matter.
I've welded various thicknesses of mild steel, Stainless and Aluminum with it and, for the most part, it has performed as advertised. I've also used both the 1lb roles and the 10lb rolls. One tiny problem, the spring is a bit too long on the small rolls and you have to put the lock nut for them on backwards in order to get low enough friction if you're using aluminum wire.
The machine does indeed weld 3/16" steel in one pass if you go very slow and have a smooth technique. If you are looking for something to weld heavy steel often, get a stick welder for half the money, or move to a 220 machine that will run heavier wire. With respect to heavy steel, I wanted this machine just for occasional smaller welds and it delivers there.Read more ›
This sucker has welded EVERYTHING I have thrown at it, without a hitch whatsoever. And I was getting such awesome welds using flux-core, I've said to-hell with gas all together, which just adds to the convenience. Buy this welder! Let me repeat: Buy this welder! (you know you've always wanted one)
I highly recommend this outstanding little welder from Hobart!

Paying attention to the up or down trend from several reviewers will help you make an educated decision on whether or not the item is for you.
