 Hobart Handler 180

Hey Guys,

Hobart/Miller just came out with a replacement(HH 180) for the Hobart 175 Mig welder and I went out and bought one based on the recomendations of my welder cyber buddies on the Hobart website. Welds up to 5/16 thick plate. Should speed up my dump trailer project bigtime on the 1/8 sheet attachment to the bed. A set of oxy/actylene torches, 220volt stick welder and a 220volt Mig welder are a 1-3 punch for doing ANTHING you feel like with metal.

Hey all you welder Guys,


This HH180 Mig welder is the welding cat's "MEEEEOWWWW. Look's like my stick welder will be religated to the 3/8s thick and over welding. Local welding dealer wasn't too happy (he asked me what I paid) when I replied to him that I got it delivered to my door for 558.99. Another online welding shop had a 75 cubic inch shielding gas tank delivered to my door for another 35.00 in savings. The local welding guy's price was 629.99 plus 6% Michigan sales tax on HH180 and 129.99 plus tax on the cylinder. I don't know about you guys buT why would i pay OVER a 100.00 MORE to support my local OVERPRICED ECONOMY. WOULD ANY OF YOU PAY THE EXTRA 150.00 bucks to buy local? You know my answer. I did let him fill the tank and bought my consumeables from him. Come to find out the local guy is 2.00 higher the Tractor Supply's tank fill on c-25 gas TSC IS NOT EVEN IN THE WELDING BUSINESS PER SE. Oh well I tried.

I think in today's price conscious world if you aren't pursuing some form of LOW PRICE internet sales for your products...YOU ARE LOSING SALES. The days of people coming into your place of business and paying what you feel like charging ARE GONE. This multi location large local welding dealer in my view was CAUGHT red-handed trying to RIP ME OFF. The very same product for 150.00 more is a rip off in my view on a sale less than 700.00. If you couldn't trust him to give his best price now what make you feel you can trust him in the future????? Internet pricing is like a lie detector. If the difference between the local dealer and internet was 6%, the local guy would have got my business!!!!! Instead, I caught him trying to steal my wallet and it cost hims a Mig welder and tank sale didn't it!!!!! Some retailers never learn.

Let us know what happens when it breaks and you take back to the local rip off dealer for warranty instead of shipping it back where you bought it.[no flame intended,just my oppinion]

My local dealer has to send it to Hobart to getit fixed so, I might as well send it to Hobart/ Miller direct. That is the way it works. Most dealers DO NOT REPAIR.

Hobart and Miller have a decent web site which lists dealers who also perform service and warranty repairs. If a dealer is also listed as a repair site, they will take on the repair of a Hobart/Miller welder.

Miller and Hobart appear to be the same company since they have the same business address.

That Hobart 180 is a decent machine and, once it is set up, is easier to use than a stick welder. Put a 10# spool of wire in it and weld for hours.
