Is the Hobart 140 amp handler welder any good? its going to be used for welding tubing for bumpers,nerf bars, etc.

It will work fine for the small stuff and an occasional car but if your gonna build several cars get a 175-200. I used an older Hobart 150 for almost 12 yrs. I got a deal on a new Miller 210 and upgraded or otherwise I would have bought a new Hobart 210.

I used a 135 to do my car. It worked great with no problems. To bad I moved and had to give it back to the guy I borrowed it from.

We have a hobart 180 on the way and it says it welds up to 5/16 so I would think thickness wise you might be o.k. Don't know if the duty cyle will limit you at all.

handler 135 has built a few cars in my shop and never fails. If it just a one car deal cant go wrong. It burns plenty hot enuff, hot enuff that its easy to burn up tubing.
