Customer review for Hobart 500500 Handler 140
I love it. I’ve made very successful welds on 1/8″ steel using .035 wire and 25/75 argon/co2 mix, 5/32″ cast aluminum using .035 aluminum wire with 100% argon, (repaired Webber gas grill cover hinge that broke in a gale: Saved a pretty penny!), 24 gauge steel using .023″ wire 25/75 argon/co2, and several other thicknesses of steel up to 5/32″. Flux core wire works well too on 1/8″ and thicker steel, but of course not as pretty a weld. Easy to set up, adjust, and learn to use. Have not yet exceeded the duty cycle or caused a circuit breaker to open. I have found that one of the keys is to look at the work from the side so the puddle is always visible. I use a self-darkening helmet: expensive, but I think worth it. My previous experience is with a torch and with 220v buzz box. The MIG makes strong welds in material 1/8″ and thinner so much easier. Buy one and enjoy it.
