Product Summary

Hobart Handler® 130 Wire-Feed MIG-Ready Welder has an EZ-Mode™ that makes it extra-easy to set up the welder for different material thicknesses by simply adjusting one knob for voltage and wire feed speed control. The welder can also be operated in the traditional way with separate voltage and wire-feed speed knobs for customized control. Operates off 115V household current. A gas solenoid makes it easy to change from flux-cored wire to MIG welding. Welds up to 3/16in. steel. Hobart 5/3/1 limited warranty.
