Hobart Handler 140 MIG Wire Welder, 500559 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 508.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great home shop welder. I have been looking for a 120v welding machine for a while. After talking to friends and reading reviews I chose the Hobart Handler 140. It is very well made. Just learning to use mig machine with flux-core wire. I haven’t done any gas or arc welding for many years and I wanted to try a mig machine. Go with a Hobart. You won’t be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hobart 140 mig welder This is a great Welder. Easy to put together to get started. Comes with a small roll of Flux core wire.Do yourself a favor and get a 1lb roll of solid .30 Hobart wire and a bottle of shielding gas and you are set. Im no welder by no means and this thing puts out some nice welds.

what does MIG mean

Asked by: puddin
MIG welding stands for metal inert gas welding. It was originally used to weld non-ferrous metals such as aluminum. It eventually was used on steel too. It is a quicker method of welding as compared to other methods of welding.

What wattage Generator can power this welder so you can use it away from the shop?

Asked by: New operator
The Handler 140 requires at least a 20 amp 120 Volt service. This would be a 3000 watt 120V generator or a 5000 watt 120/240 volt generator. We do not recommend an inverter type generator.
