Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect running machine I do alot of welding as a utillity technician for a sewerage system and wanted a home Mig for side jobs. This machine performs as good as a high end machine. I have had it a week and ran 10lbs of wire through it already. No problem with anything. It weld perfect allday long. The inside of rhis machine looks to be made the right way not like you cheap home owner machines.

CAN THIS WELDER BE OPERATED OFF A GEERATER

Asked by: JOE L JR
Yes this unit can be powered from a generator. A 7000 watt continuous would be required to achieve max output of 190 amps and 5000 watt to achieve rated output of 130 amps.

This is a simple beginners welder as easy as they come. I find I have to keep the gun close to the weld when using gas outside. Are the parts for this welder made in the U.S?

Is this ready out of the box to weld Aluminum. Minus the Argon.

Asked by: Dwest
The Hobart stock(SKU) number 500554001-which includes the Spoolrunner 100, will do aluminum with the addition of aluminum wire and 100% Argon gas. Hobart stock(SKU) number 500554 does not come with the Spoolrunner 100.

How big of a generator do you need to run this.I build fence and would want to take it to the field

Asked by: Pony boy
To operate at full capacity you would want a 7000 watt continuous rated generator and to operate at rated output of 130 amps you would need a 5000 watt continuous rated generator.
