    Hobarts 120V is also just an adapter to fit the cord, the 240v is special.
    Its why they warn about cutting it off and simply adding a plug, it will work and could be safe if the thing wasnt plugged in above 30A. The code allows dedicated circuits but not dedicated cord ends, machine would simply look standard with a replacement end that wasnt correct,,, ambush wiring jobs.
    Yep safety feature..... Sort of keeps you code compliant at least on welder side of receptacle...
