Refurbished units look brand new.  Most are unused returns that have never been fired up except during testing.   If there has been prior use, it is very minimal.  Our welders are manufacturer refurbished by Hobart.  All units are fully tested for performance and guaranteed to work like new.  They come with a one year manufacturer's warranty.

The Handler® 130 operates off 115-volt household current. Comes ready to weld without shielding gas using .030-.035 in (0.8-0.9 mm) flux cored wire. This welder includes the patented EZ-Mode™ feature which allows for simple single knob operation based on material thickness settings. The Handler 130 is equipped with a built-in gas valve, and with the addition of a regulator and gas hose, you're ready to MIG weld with .023-.030 in. (0.6-0.8 mm) solid wire. Use C-25 gas (75% argon/25% CO2) on 24 gauge - 1/8 in steel for a cleaner weld with less spatter. Use Tri-Mix gas and stainless wire for welding on 16-12 gauge stainless steel.
