New Hobart MIG welder

I just posted this in a thread about Help me pick a welder, so I figured that since it was such a good deal I would give it a thread of it's own.

About six weeks ago I bought the Hobart 500304 Ironman 210 Single Phase Mig Welding Package 220 volt 210 amp mig welder. It arrived at the local yellow freight about a week and a half later and I picked it up. All I can say is that I absolutely love this welder! The total cost was only 1101.38$. It came with everything except tank and helmet. I looked at used welders and the various discount tool welders and I kept coming back to this one. I looked at Miller and Lincoln also but they were in a higher price range. When I checked with the two local Hobart dealers they both told me that they couldn't buy the same welder as cheap as I could so they didn't even try to compete with the price. I bought it from a company called toolfetch.com Right now they are running a five percent discount and free shipping and that is the same deal that I got. I know that it is about 400.00$ more than you want to spend but check out this warranty:
"Hobart's 5/3/1 warranty - five year warranty on transformers, stabilizers and generators; three years on electronics (drive motors, rectifiers); and one year on guns (MIG and plasma torches)."
That is why I went ahead and got a new one. I have been welding for more than thirty years and this one is a good one. The last mig that I had was a Millermatic 200. I liked it also but I lost it in divorce. In 1989 I paid close to 1500.00 for it so I was well pleased to find this one at such a good price. This welder will do anything that the average hotrodder would need to do. When you go to the site be sure and look at the reviews, mine is under the name doodle.

Chris

Chris, Could not agree more on the 210 ironman. Have had mine about six years now and have not had a bit of problems with it. when I bought it they were having a promotion on them and it came with a nice flag themed auto darkening hood. Purchased from Tractor supply for $999.00. So prices have gone up on them just like everything else. Have fun with it! Joel
