Top Customer Reviews
Ok now for this welder. I can only say that there is some great quality behind this product. Every detail from the drive motor to the tip is well above what you would expect at a product at this price-point.
+ Makes very strong welds at a measly 110v
+ Excellent drive pushes the wire easily and evenly
+ Quality materials, fit and finish (knobs and switches feel as though they will last).
+ Great welds by a complete amateur means this product is A+ quality.
+ Hobart is owned by Miller ( the gun has Miller on the grip).
+ American Made
Cons: (these are tiny nags)
- Spend a little more and get the one with the gas regulator.
- Color does not match the picture (its white now)
Tips for ownership:
* When installing the wire be sure to hold tight to the spool, if you give even a little bit of slack it will unwind in an explosion of wire.
* Be sure the wire is cut cleanly, if there is a slight bend at the end of the wire it will not feed out to the tip
* Read the manual! If you accidentally touch the tip with bare hands with the trigger pulled you will send enough amperage through your heart to kill an elephant.
Overall this is probably one of the best entry level MIG welders at this price-point. I researched for a few months before pulling the trigger. Now I am happy I got this one!
Thank you for reading my review and happy welding.
I will tell you that I finsihed about 25 bars before I ran out of the origianl sample spool that is includsed with the welder.Read more ›
I weld a ton of stuff with 1/8 wall and it does a great job. I've built a squat rack, lat pull down machine, front receiver hitch (1/4 inch wall), rear reciver hitch rack, bicycle stand, ladder rack, steps for my garage, step rails for my truck, and other small projects without any issues with this welder. I'm very pleased with this unit and fully encourage folks to buy one for their home shop.
I don't use sheilding gas when welding; only use flux core. Can't say how this unit will do with shielding gas. **I'm not a professional welder; just a guy who likes to spend time in the shop**

I can't get this welder to feed the wire and do flux core at all. It's loaded up, I can't get the tension correct or something -- it spits and pops. Read morePublished 3 months ago by kje1

Wish I would have bought a Lincoln, this Hobart works well for a short time, but then it gets to hot & sputters, you have to let it cool down before you can continue welding againPublished 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
