Performance Right Out of the Gate

Performance Right Out of the Gate

Complete and Ready to Go

This exceptional welding package comes complete with wire feeder, running gear, cylinder rack, regulator/flow gauge, cable and clamps and extra tips, so you're set to go, right away. Add the optional Hobart Direct Connect 20ft. spoolgun (Item# 916461, sold sepately) to make aluminum welding easier than ever with no additional interface required.

Easy Setup

Setup is a breeze with this unit, and once you're ready to go, the IronMan 230 is capable of running flux core steel, solid and aluminum wire — a versatility that's hard to beat.

230V AC Power to Get the Job Done

The welder is powered by 230V AC input service and a 50 Amp breaker, giving you all the juice you'll need to weld 24-ga. to 1/2in. steel in a single pass.

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 with optimal efficiency.

Versatility is Standard Equipment

Match Your Project with Adjustable Settings

12 voltage tap settings offer both simplified and amplified adjustments, allowing you to set an arc that is smooth and easy to control. It's this reliability of the arc that results in clean, professional welds.

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.

One Drive Roll, Two Sizes

The 0 to 700 IPM aluminum wire drive system has handy reversible drive rolls. That means each drive roll has 2 grooves, enabling it to handle 2 separate wire sizes. The result is fewer spools to replace, quicker spool changes, fewer spools you need to keep on hand, and ultimately, lower costs!

Change Wire Spools in a Snap

The convenient spool hub has a tool-less brake tension knob plus an automatic wire alignment feature and easy hinged door access to the wire drive system that truly makes changing from 2lb. to 10lb., 33lb. and 45lb. wire spools a snap.

Aluminum Welding Made Easy

Integrated spoolgun control circuitry is standard with this welder, so no additional control box or adapter is required to connect the optional 20ft. spoolgun (Item# 916461, sold separately). This easy-to-setup spoolgun enhances wire feedability and reduces the hassles and frustrations of bird-nesting that often occurs with soft aluminum wires.

Versatility is Standard Equipment
Built for Lasting Performance

Built for Lasting Performance

High-Output Duty Cycle

With a high machine output of 60% duty cycle @ 175 Amps, this unit can weld for longer periods at a time with less downtime, and that means increased productivity!

Delivers the Power You Need

This MIG/Flux core welder is capable of delivering a range of 30–250 Amps of welding power to match your needs. And the unit is able to weld at a higher Amperage while using a lower duty cycle, extending each run time.

Optimized Arc for Flawless Welds

Almost no spatter or post-weld cleanup and nearly flawless welds, that's what the optimized arc delivers with every use. And to top things off, the infinite wire feed speed control puts precise adjustment of penetration and weld bead shape right in your own hands.

A Short Arc Goes a Long Way

The IronMan 230 features excellent short arc performance, leaving you with an easy-to-control weld puddle that can drastically improve your overall welding results.

Safety is Built Right In

A self-resetting thermal overload system protects the unit in the toughest applications, while the fan-on-demand cooling system operates only when needed, reducing power consumption and limiting the amount of contaminants that are drawn into the machine.

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 tips, nozzles and drive rolls.

Stay Neat and Safe

This welder has dual side-mounted cable hangers built right in to provide convenient storage for all of your cables, keeping them safely up and out of the way and just a quick reach away when they're not in use.

Added Mobility Brings the Welder to the Project

The IronMan 230 features a built-in running gear/cylinder rack that allows you to easily maneuver the unit to whatever spot you need it. No more disrupting your project to drag your supplies clear across the shop to your welding spot. The easy-rolling wheels let you bring the welder right to your project!
