After almost 2 years of use I have put about 500 lbs of wire through this machine: 44 lb. spools. Recently, it started welding rough. Checking inside with a voltmeter, I found the contactor relay switch (that clicks shut when you pull the trigger) had excessive voltage drop across it. Was surprised that it was a cheap 3 pole 30 amp motor starter relay commonly used to start air conditioner fans. The 3 poles are bridged together and it switches the WELDING CURRENT!! (after the transformer...). The contacts were fried and it had developed resistance and a voltage drop. It was only about $40 for a new one, but it was riveted on and sort of a hassle to change out. Also, I noticed the gas solenoid valve is made with a PLASTIC body valve (how chintzy!).Read more ›
Power cable and ground cables to short (I'll have to
Wire guide doesn't line up with rollers.
Page 22 settings using 75/25, .035 wire runs to cold, need to go up one step.
For 50 cents you could put a purge button on, I get tired of opening the machine and releasing the roller pressure, or I could waste wire.
Good smooth arc.
Voltage has 12 tap settings (variable would be better, but it's a price thing).
Fan on demand
The chain that holds the tank of argon fits loose, put a wooden wedge between the chain and tank.
Cut a piece of 5/8" plywood that fits snug where the bottle sets, then cut a circle the dia. of the tank and that will keep the tank from moving.
Remember MIG needs a good ground.
The bottom line if you price 250amp Lincoln or Miller with a spoolgun, you will get the Ironman 230, unless maybe your going to make a living with a welding machine.
A good place to check out
I already have the Hobart 210MVP for 3 years and I can't hurt it-It's top quality...I'll give the 210MVP to my son.
I discovered as my need for a heaver welder increased, I needed to weld 3/8 to 1" steel often when welding monster mudtruck suspension items....My little Hobart 210MVP just couldn't burn it in but tried hard.
So I just ordered the IronMan tonight.
I've used this welder at a friend's house. I fully expect it will last me for many years. Hobart makes top quality welders. The rest of my gear is all Hypertherm and HTP TIG, so I don't nickle-dime when it comes to welding machinery....I simply know from experience the Hobart make top quality and reliable equipment.
WHEE!, just got mine today a day early. It arrived in perfect condition. It welds fantastic ! I installed a 125 CFT bottle in the builtin rack, but there is plenty of room for a 330 ft bottle in case you were wondering.
