Hobart Handler 190 MIG Welder, 190A, 230V, 500554 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 215.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome welder for hobbyist or professional I absolutely recommend this welder. I learned on a HF cheapo MIG and a Lincoln stick. This welder is so well set up and so easy it makes me look like I'm better than I am. It lays beads as easy as squeezing toothpaste out of a tube. I wish I had bought years ago. Most importantly, if you ready to spend money on a quality MIG don't bother without getting set up for gas. I'll only ever flux wire MIG again if I'm outside in the wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built solid I bought this because its a transformer based unit. Heavy, reliable and i dont need all the bells and whistles. Not the greatist duty cycle, but for home use its more than enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing welder Best welder I ever purchased. I had a Lincoln welder for years and it finally died. Went with Hobart after reading reviews and glad I made the move.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New To Me New To Me, I have welded 20 min tops, with this new machine, at this point I think its great, went from a 100 Lincoln 120 volt that I have had for 25 years, its a good machine, but the Hobart 190 is better for heavyer welding, I will keep both.

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?

Asked by: Oldackonoak

Does this come with the liner it needs to run gas or does it have to be changed?

Asked by: Jaybo91gt
Yes… it can run flux core or solid. To run solid you will need a bottle of shielding gas. Everything is there.
