Product Summary

The Handler® 125 operates off of 115-volt household current. Comes ready to weld without shielding gas using .030-.035 in. (0.8-0.9 mm) flux cored wire. MIG-Ready means this welder is equipped with a built-in gas valve, and with the addition of a regulator, you're ready to MIG weld with .023-.030 in. (0.6-0.8 mm) solid wire. Use C-25 gas (75% argon/25% CO2) on 24 gauge - 1/8 in. steel for a cleaner weld with less spatter. Use Tri-Mix gas and stainless wire for welding on 16–12 ga. stainless steel. Comes with Hobart's 5/3/1 limited warranty.

What's Included

  • (1) Welder
  • (3) Contact tips
  • (1) MIG gun
  • (1) Ground cable and clamp
