115V AC Power to Get the Job Done

This compact wire-feed MIG welder is powered by 115V AC household power, giving you all the juice you'll need to weld thin gauge steel (24ga.) up to 1/4in. steel plate.

Designed for Functionality

The sloped front panel design puts all of the controls right where you can see them the best, while providing easy access that allows you to work and make adjustments with optimal efficiency.

Versatility is Standard Equipment

Match Your Project with Adjustable Settings

A 5-position voltage control selector allows you to dial up the perfect setting to deliver a smooth, stable arc at all welding thicknesses.

Quick Wire Changes

There's no need to slow down just because you have to change wire sizes. With Hobart's quick-release drive roll system you get hassle-free spool releases that make wire changes simple and lightning fast!

Versatility is Standard Equipment
State-of-the-Art Components

A Tidy Solution

Storage Area Keeps You Organized

A handy storage area is built right into the welder cabinet, making it quick and easy to stow away or access spare contact tips, nozzles and drive rolls.

The Settings Are at Your Fingertips

No more fumbling through manuals and delaying your start while trying to find the correct initial welding settings. A handy door chart offers quick reference to all the wire, gas, material and thickness settings you need. It's the perfect quick starting point for novices and professionals alike.

Built for Lasting Performance

High-Output Duty Cycle

With 25–140 Amperage output and a 20% duty cycle @ 90 Amps, you get the power and welding performance you need to make your efforts more productive.

Smooth Wire Feeds with Easy Changes

The durable feed head features a quick-release drive roll for speedy wire changes. The easily accessible system also makes threading new wire a breeze.

It's As Safe and Easy As Pulling the Trigger

The built-in contactor makes this welder very easy to operate and improves safety by keeping the wire electrically "cold" until the spoolgun trigger is pulled.

This Drive System Goes the Extra Mile

Rugged is the perfect word to describe the Handler 140's drive system. Manufactured from tough industrial cast aluminum, you can rest assured that this unit is built for extended durability.

Improved Ground Clamp Opens Wide

The new and improved heavy-duty ground clamp is made from thicker material than previous models, offering improved contact points upon hookup with a wider jaw opening to give you more clamping options.

Safety is Built Right In

A self-resetting thermal overload system protects the unit in the toughest applications, while short circuit protection guards against current overload. You also get self-resetting motor protection, which protects against wire feed overload, effectively eliminating the need to change fuses or reset circuit breaker buttons.

Built for Lasting Performance
