    I am not a professional welder. I have a project at home that would have cost me in the thousands to have done elsewhere. So, I thought I would get a welder and teach myself. There are tons of Youtube movies out there showing how to do gas-less welding. Check them out if your new to the whole process.

    Ok now for this welder. I can only say that there is some great quality behind this product. Every detail from the drive motor to the tip is well above what you would expect at a product at this price-point.

    Pros:
    + Makes very strong welds at a measly 110v
    + Excellent drive pushes the wire easily and evenly
    + Quality materials, fit and finish (knobs and switches feel as though they will last).
    + Great welds by a complete amateur means this product is A+ quality.
    + Hobart is owned by Miller ( the gun has Miller on the grip).
    + American Made

    Cons: (these are tiny nags)
    - Spend a little more and get the one with the gas regulator.
    - Color does not match the picture (its white now)

    Tips for ownership:
    * When installing the wire be sure to hold tight to the spool, if you give even a little bit of slack it will unwind in an explosion of wire.
    * Be sure the wire is cut cleanly, if there is a slight bend at the end of the wire it will not feed out to the tip
    * Read the manual! If you accidentally touch the tip with bare hands with the trigger pulled you will send enough amperage through your heart to kill an elephant.

    Overall this is probably one of the best entry level MIG welders at this price-point. I researched for a few months before pulling the trigger. Now I am happy I got this one!

    Thank you for reading my review and happy welding.

    I am a novice welder but have tried several of the “cheaper” units and this blows them away. I bought this unit based solely on the single review by J.J. Marino and couldn’t have been happier. His review is right on the money about this welder and thought I would add my 2 cents after my purchase. Thanks J.J.. For $320 you will not find a better product. 15 minutes out of the box and you’re welding. Comes with everything you need to go to work immediately (except a mask/goggles). I don’t know why they call it the “Auto Arc” because it’s a Hobart Handler 125 for a few dollars less and some different stickers. AND you can add gas to this unit for under $100 with the Handler 125 Mig Conversion kit, also sold here. I bought the conversion kit, installed it in about a half hour and now can weld any kind of metal I would ever want to. If you are looking for an good small unit, this is it. Worth every penny and would recommend it to anyone I know.

    I read some reviews on this model and had some concern about the quality of this welder. I’ve read that Hobart purchased Miller’s AutoArc and rebadged it under their name. It makes little difference to me because this welder is great. Set up is easy and it does exactly what it says it will do. I have welded 1/4 inch with this machine using a double pass technique, however, the machine will overheat if you have a lot of welding at 1/4.

    I weld a ton of stuff with 1/8 wall and it does a great job. I’ve built a squat rack, lat pull down machine, front receiver hitch (1/4 inch wall), rear reciver hitch rack, bicycle stand, ladder rack, steps for my garage, step rails for my truck, and other small projects without any issues with this welder. I’m very pleased with this unit and fully encourage folks to buy one for their home shop.

    I don’t use sheilding gas when welding; only use flux core. Can’t say how this unit will do with shielding gas. **I’m not a professional welder; just a guy who likes to spend time in the shop**
