If you are looking for a quality, affordable and complete MIG welding rig, the Hobart 140 MIG Welder Kit is an outstanding value. The welder has the power to handle a wide variety of welding tasks at home or on the job; the cart, helmet and regulator means it is ready to go out of the box. Hobart designed the tool as a good choice for your first welder, but it also has the capabilities that contractors and accomplished DIY buffs look for when welding is on their agenda. It’s a 110 volt unit that gives it flexibility to work just about anywhere, including with the assistance of a generator where there’s no available power. The 130 amp power provides enough strength to handle any light to medium duty work that comes your way.
There’s plenty to like in this quality MIG kit. The kit features a fixed flow or adjustable flow regulator and hose assembly in addition to the welding cart and a welding helmet that is adequate. The welder offers 4 voltage tap settings for versatility in your approach to any welding task. You’ll also receive a starter spool of Flux core wire. The functionality of this welder is excellent. It’s easy to fire up and will weld mild steels in the range of 24 gauge to 3/16 inches. You have the flexibility to use solid core and flux core MIG wires with a diameter range from .023 to .035.
The 8’ gun assembly is backed by a 7’ work lead with a 6’ power cord, all of which makes it easy to reach the task at hand, whether it’s under a vehicle, up a ladder or on top of a piece of equipment.
The Hobart is covered by a limited 5-year warranty on the transformer and rectifier with a 1-year warranty on all other functional parts. Hobart welders are an industry leader when it comes to performance and their durability means that warranty issues rarely arise.
