Designed to be a jobsite workhorse, the Hobart Champion™ ELITE combines an 11,000 Watt generator with an AC/DC stick welder for farm/ranch, general construction, and emergency power applications, or as a stand-alone generator. It features a rugged, fully enclosed case which provides a protective barrier and lowers noise. The ELITE unit provides strong and reliable generator power to run compressors, pumps, lights, hand tools and other equipment. All receptacles on the ELITE feature push-button reset circuit breakers. Auxiliary power while welding gives you the capability to run other equipment (lights, grinder) at the same time you are welding. With the quick set current control, it is easy to set up, provides smooth arc starts and maintains optimum arc characteristics. Cables not included.

Hobart Champion™ ELITE Welder/Generator is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable Quality I purchased this as an upgrade to my other gas driven 1971 Hobart unit with a smaller generator. The GFCI outlet indicated it was defective out of the box, but Customer Service had one delivered in a couple days-the alternative was to return it or ship it to a repair facility. I have owned this product over a year with no problems and it is much nicer and quieter to weld with than my older 42 year old unit. As a standby generator, I recently tested the generator at full load at my farthest receptacle and the hertz and voltage was right on the money. This Hobart was substantially cheaper than the competitor (who actually makes this unit) and the extra money, to me, was worth the welding capability and the HD engine over a generator only unit. Many engines on generator only and smaller units do not have cast iron sleeves or HD engines, so your life expectancy is limited. I believe this unit will go the distance and I too can pass the unit on to my next generation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't be Beat!! I am a welder by profession. I have had all of the major brands over the years and this is my favorite. Runs great, welds super, and has a great AC power for tools. It is not real heavy and I have welded 5/32" 7018 rods all day for weeks on dock boards and it never failed for a second. Price as compared to other name brands is much cheaper and Hobart will last and last.
