I saw it on display and noticed the regulator was missing.I had came to buy one at full price and they were out of them.When I talked to the manager,and asked if she would sell it, that is the price she offered it to me.I wasn't about to let that deal pass.I don't know what the duty cycle on mine is but I've never hit it either

yeah you couldn't pass that up. It is a great welder and I mostly weld quarter panels and such with mine but have welded 1/4 inch plates with no issues.

I ve tried to do body work with mine with no luck.I either burn thru or it looks like it is just puddling with no penetration.What kind of wire/settings do you use?

Hey
I also have a Hobart Handler 175,And I love it.I have done a lot of welding with Millermatic,different sizes,and to me,unless you try to weld metal too thick,the Hobart welds just as good.It works great od any chassis and cage work.I bought mine at Tractor Supply,between 600 and 700 with cart. good luck..........Gary
