I have a Hobart Handler 190. I had to put a 2x2 square tubing behind my welder to keep it from contacting the gas bottle. You have to tilt the welder over just a little to open the side door because it hits the self side flange, not a big problem though. You only open this door occasionally and if required could leave the door cracked open.
The cart is well-designed and, surprisingly, of better quality than I was expecting. The sheet metal is thin, but not as thin or flimsy as I was expecting for an inexpensive, bolt-together cart.
The upper shelf is 12" wide by 17" long. However, because the nuts/bolts attaching the shelf protrude into the shelf space, the actual dimensions are closer to 11" x 16". That said, my welder fit without any interference, and most welders have feet that will likely raise it above these areas.
All of the nuts are self-locking, so the only tool required for assembly is a 10mm socket or wrench.
The handle in is strong, and the two hooks are substantial enough for hanging welding cables, mask, etc... There is room on the bottom shelf to hold welding headgear, and the middle shelf can easily store other essentials like pliers, gloves, wire spools, etc. The casters and wheels are also higher quality than I would have expected.
A few assembly notes:
1. When assembling, the first step is to attach the casters and wheels. These bolts can be appropriately tightened.
2. For the remaining steps, DO NOT fully tighten the nuts/bolts. Everything from step 2 and on should be assembled by hand (hand tight). By not fully tightening the bolts, enough movement of the parts is allowed to align the predrilled holes as assembly progresses.
3. I used blue Loc Tite on all of the bolts. This is not in the assembly instructions, nor is it required. I don't want anything rattling loose.
4. The bolts used to attach the hooks are too small. Be aware of this, and make sure you do not over tighten the nuts/bolts. The bolts are soft brass, and because I couldn't get a good "bite" on the threads, I did strip one while attaching one of the welding hooks.
5. I did have an issue with some of the holes on the top shelf not aligning properly. This is the reason I rated this cart 4-stars and not 5. While a drill and a 3/8" metal bit remedied the problem, it was an unexpected inconvenience. All of the other holes aligned perfectly.
Easy to assemble
Predrilled holes align well
Higher quality than expected, and surprisingly sturdy for a bolt-together cart
Ample storage space for welder and supplies
Poor assembly instructions
Since the item is actually made in China you get screws that can easily strip if you over torque. I used blue thread lock, a box end wrench, a screwdriver handle with socket end, and some common sense when tightening. Everything is plenty tight & holds great.
I have a new Hobart 210MVP – (85lbs) and it fits on the top shelf just fine. I made some adjustments you may find helpful with your set up. I did not want the welder positioned all the way to the back edge of the top shelf since top of the welder in the rear would touch the gas cylinder and keep it from lying flush against the rear of the cart by about ¾ inch. The fix: I bought a WATTS washing machine/dishwasher hose from home depot for $3.50 . It is black, and it has 1 ¼” Outside diameter with 7/8” inside diameter. I cut the 2ft length down to 12 inches and placed it across the back of the 12inch wide shelf and now the welder stays just far enough from the back of the shelf to not touch the 125cc gas cylinder. Since the hose is black and sits low, it blends in nicely and the hose is plenty stiff to not crush.
As others mentioned the welder door on the side will not quite have enough clearance and will hit the side lip of the top shelf. So, at Home depot I bought the Everbuilt brand 1” Heavy duty rubber feet. They come 4 to a pack and they have a metal washer backing with a predrilled 3/16” hole. This matches up nicely to the Hobart welder bottom as its raised metal feet areas have a predrilled 3/16” hole in them also. Just pick up some Stanley 3/16” (5mm) rivets with a 1/8 grip range and attach the rubber feet with a rivet gun. The nice thing here is it lifts up the welder ¼ inch and now the welder door clears the shelf side and the rubber feet are non skid and they keep the welder secure from sliding around on the shelf.
I also bought a pack of the Everbuilt 1 ½” black rubber self adhesive pads. I cut them in half thus making half moon shapes and I placed each half moon (flat side down touching the shelf) over the head of the bolts that were on the inside edges of the top shelf.
My intent was for scratch protection but it is really not necessary since the rubber feet that were installed keep the welder from moving around. I left the rubber pads on since they hide the bolts and make a totally clean look all the way around the inside of the shelf
