  • Handler 125 MIG gas conversion

    The Handler 125 was available in a version that was not MIG-ready; it did not have the parts that allowed shielding gas to be used. Hobart sold a conversion kit, part number 195158 that had the necessary parts. This kit is no longer available but the parts can be purchased separately. The information below is from another welder who obtained the part numbers from the HH 125 manual. Before taking this as gospel for your machine, look in your manual and match the part numbers here to what is printed for your particular machine. You can find the manual for your version here: http://www.hobartwelders.com/service/owners-manuals/

    The prices are from: http://miller4less.com/index.php
    The part numbers and descriptions are:

    I bought mine from Grainger as a complete kit. It's been a while so I don't know the part number or anything. Sorry.

        BUT its for Lincoln..... Lincoln is not Hobart.... IT may not be same form factor in connections and voltages and such.... Probably best to stay with HOBART conversion kit for HOBART welder....
