Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great welder I have been welding for less than a year as a hobby. I have taken one class at the local votech. My welds using my flux core machine were ugly and difficult to lay down. I was a little better with my stick machine but like the flux core it created a lot of smoke. I was going to buy the Hobart 140 but decided to just go all in on a 240 volt welder. This thing is awesome. I can actually make welds like it looks like I know what I’m doing. I’m working on my old brush hog deck that requires joining parts that are not the same thickness. With the flux core I was blowing holes in 16 gage when trying to tie it to 1/8” plate. With the Hobart 190 it seems I can always find the right settings to make it work. The settings given under the spool cover seem to be pretty much spot on for joining similar thickness materials but I usually back off to the next lower setting to join plate with sheet metal and it works fine if you keep the heat focused on the thicker part. I had an electrician install a 240 volt outlet in my garage so I could stop having to run an extension cord to the dryer outlet. Very glad I went with the Hobart.

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?

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.
