Hobart 500487 Handler 125 Review

I bought this machine about 2 years ago, I previously had a harbor freight 150 which was 220 volt. I did not like that machine the wire would never feed right and it looked cheap and was built cheap. I had never welded before that machine, and I still don’t really know how. when i got the HOBART it was ready to go in about 2 min. and I was out building a stand with wheels and just about everything else i could put on it. A lot of my welds still look pretty bad but I learned a little on each one, this welder is like driving a cadillac lots of power and only needs 110 to run it. I am glad i spent the extra money and got this one. It looks good, the wire feeds great, and the temp. is very easy to adjust, when you open the hood there is a diagram of material thickness and it tells you what adjustment to make. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYBODY. I used next day shipping from Amazon and it arrived on time and I think I received a good price on it compared to all the other sites I checked.

This welder is very good quality and well made. The controls provide a wide range of welding options. Operation is simple and wire loading is easy. I use it for hobby work on 1/16″ to 1/4″ material. With proper care it will weld 1/4″ with good results.

I’ve had my hobart 125 for about a year…never welded before purchasing it. WIth a little practice, I’ve been fairly successful in welding on replacement panels on my project truck. I spent the additional money to buy the gas regulator and solenoid kit…as well as a gas bottle. The gas makes a real difference.

To anyone looking to buy a small machine, I’d stay away from the El’ Cheapo welders you see at Walmart and such. Buying a Hobart guarantees that the machine can be serviced locally. The Hobart/Miller company is really great about their service and support. I spent quite a bit of time on their online Forums and the employees and Miller / Hobart have always been very helpful.
