Hobart Handler® 125 MIG-Ready Welder is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied I have had this welder long enough to run through a spool of flux core wire and a spool of solid wire with gas. So far I am satisfied with the adjustments for both heat and wire speed. I am welding 1/8" mild steel and it has no problems doing it on 3/4 power with good penetration. I definitely prefer using gas shielding to flux core wire as it is much easier to see the weld pool and there is no to minimal cleanup required on the weld. Some welders advertise more amps than this one but remember that they are going to have to sacrifice volts to achieve that which can affect weld quality. If you are using 115 volt then you can't do much better than this welder unless you want to spend a lot more for a few more features. My only tip is to buy a 60 Cu.ft. Tank for your gas instead to the 40 I bought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally getting things done! I'm not the most experienced welder, but I do quite a bit of welding for my job and learn as I go I guess. Work supplies me with very nice tools that I'm unable to take home. So I've been using this cheap junky 90 amp 110 volt stick welder at the house which was all I could afford at the time. Now that I've bought this welder I wish I would have waited just a bit longer and bought this one to begin with. The Hobart welder lays just as good a bead as any welder I've used worth using so far. 100% penetration!!! I've yet to do that with that cheap welder at the house. I've yet to use it with gas, but I don't see a big deal with the flux core other than the thickness range is bigger with solid. Slag from the flux core is nothing that I thought I'd see. It's mostly just a fine powder and I just put a wire wheel in my drill. Just hit it with the wire wheel and it's almost as quick as solid wire welding. And if you use a wire wheel instead of a chipping hammer no one can tell you used flux core. I've used the Hobart .030 wire that came with it and right now I'm using Lincoln .035 wire. I like the .035 wire better, but haven't used the welder enough yet to know if it's the brand or thicker wire is better. I have no idea what I'm going to do with that other welder. I don't know anyone I don't like enough I can give it to. Although the junky welder is becoming useful in other ways now. Right now it's holding up the swing arm on my motorcycle while I weld a few things on it with the Hobart welder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hobart 125 Unit worked great out of the box. Set up for flux core from the factory. This was my first use of a mig welder. Trained old school on body panels and used brazing rods. Would suggest setting it up to use gas. The quality of the welds was much better. It might be due to the fact that I am still learning. If that is the case, using gas and solid wire is easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from does it all bought mine at Beckley WV tractor supply 3 yrs ago. On a farm things break. From the boom on my backhoe, the fender on my trailer and everything in between, this welder has got it done.
