Hobart Mig Welder kit for $299.99 on Black Friday

I get Rural King emails with their specials, and thought I would post this here, since there is a lot of guys interested in a low priced mig from an American manufacturer. The Auto Arc 130 is built, warranted, and serviced, by Hobart. Rural King has the value kit with cart, regulator, and helmet on Black Friday for $299.99. The reviews I've read on the Auto Arc 130 are great, the cart not so much. Problem with the cart seems to be that the screws are too small, but bigger screws have solved the problem,as well as using the new mig to weld the cart (a good way to try out your new welder!).

If you have questions about the specs the attached file is the Auto Arc 130 owners manual. It's a PDF file that you can read in any pdf viewer (Adobe reader, Foxit reader, etc)

Your link doesn't work. Says it's on the "site lock connector" whatever that means.
Maybe this one will work?

That's weird, I just tried my link and yours and they both opened the same page! Maybe a difference in settings in our computers or something. But thanks for posting the link, maybe others will have the same problem with my link.

Also, just looked on Hobart's site, the owners manual shown on their website has a newer date than the one I uploaded that I had saved on my computer. I don't know if it's any different but here's the link for the latest version of the owners manual: http://www.hobartwelders.com/om/6digit/o243712d_aut.pdf

I think the problem was you were logged into the site when you grabbed the link, so it worked for you, but not me. The link I posted was found without logging in, so it works for you, and everyone who's not logged into the site.

I wasn't logged into their site but my link did come in an email from Rural King, so I'm sure that's the reason my link wouldn't work for others.

This is ARC type.

This welder in PowerArc serial, not Mig. However, it can work in Mig function.
In range $300, it is not the best Mig welder. I will consider a Mig welder by Longevity or Eastwood.
