Hobart's are decent machines, though I would suggest getting something with a bit more power.

Find a used hobart 140, you get the regulator and stuff with it. Besides, most in here will tell you buy as big as you can afford, you can't go too big.

I should have listened just upgraded from a eastwood 135 to a hobart 190.

X2 Hobart is made by miller.

And you might like welding to much and out grow the machine.

ONLY downfall to Hobart is up until the ironman 230. The fan stays running. Ugh

I've been checking craigslist for a couple weeks now and they all seem to be really bad or way out of my price range. I'll keep any eye out though.

Buddy came over and we cut out the rot and tacked in the new metal. I'm getting line x this week so it didn't have to look gorgeous. Just glad the rot is gone

When I was looking for mine everything I found was either parts or priced almost new. I looked multiple times everyday for a few months, along with plasma cutters. I just ended up going new, why take the chance on a used machine just to save 1or 200 on a $1000+ machine.

That's a leaf spring slider box. Its suppose to give you "more travel" without over extending your springs and replaces the shackles. There are mixed reviews on them.

Wouldn't just one side of the leafs have the box to prevent the axle from sliding forward/backward or would the box be on both sides ?
