Handler® 130 MIG Welder | HobartWelders

Handler® 130 EZ- Mode™ Welder

Welds 24 gauge up to 3/16 in. (4.8 mm) thick steel. Amp range of 30 - 130A.


What's Included

  • Comfortable 8-ft. (2.4 m) H-98 gun
  • Work cable with clamp
  • Sample spool of .030 in. (0.8 mm) self-shielding flux-cored wire
  • .030 in. (0.8 mm) contact tips
  • Spool shaft to accommodate 4 in. spools (Optional hub kit available for 8 in. spools)
  • Power cord with plug
  • Weld set-up chart
  • Owner's manual with parts lists, installation, operation and maintenance guidelines.
Operator only needs to adjust a single knob for the thickness of mild steel when welding with self-shielded flux-cored wire. Single knob automatically adjusts both the volts and wire feed speed when unit is set in EZ-Mode.
Two knob control
Allows independent control of the voltage and wire feed speed (WFS).
Broad output range of 30 - 130 A
Allows you to weld up to 3/16 in. steel with flux-cored wire.
Four output voltage/material thickness settings with wire feed speed tracking
Provides a broader operating window for each wire, with quick and easy adjustment for different thicknesses and joints.
Factory-installed gas solenoid
Makes it easy to change from flux-cored wire to MIG welding.
Built-in contactor
Eases use and excellent safety feature which makes wire electrically "cold" until trigger is pulled.
Durable feed head with quick-release drive roll tension lever
Positive feed with adjustable tension plus easy accessibility to thread new wire.
Dual-groove quick-change drive roll
Makes it easy to change from one wire size to another. One knurled groove for .030-.035 in. (0.8-0.9 mm) wire, and one smooth groove for .023/.025 in. (0.6 mm) wire.
Short circuit protection
Protects unit against current overload
Self-resetting thermal overload
Protects power transformer to ensure reliability.
Self-resetting motor protection
Protects wire feed system from overload, no fuses to change or circuit breaker buttons to reset.

Not Included

  • Shielding gas and safety equipment not included.
