Pros

It works with flux core or gas shielded wire. Been using with argon mix and love it.

Very smooth, wand is easy to maneuver around. Well built. Well packaged. Only thing is, its quite heavy!



Cons

One wire from the voltage knob wasn't attached either. The gears are not a servicable part and requre replacement of the entire gun and gearbox. Had a welder from harbor freight previously and had better luck with that wire fed than this junk.

Quality


I like the fact it good quality and easy to get parts it seems to be a good genuine american product.


With the modern advancements in hobart products this younger generation has it easy peasy to be journy men in todays trades!


If you are new to welding do some reading on the subject and definitely read the instructions that come with the welder.

Competitiveness


I’m an amateur welder but not a amateur builder/designer.


It dose a great weld, even for a novice.
