    Gas Conversion Kit- 125 Handler

    Anybody know the best place to get a conversion kit so I can use Gas with my Hobart Handler 125? Also, can you sum up the pros and cons of using gas?
    Thanks!

    You can find one at www.fleetfarm.com for around 80.00 . Them you will need a gas bottle, if you buy the small ones, get 2 because if you don't it will run out at the worst possible time.I use the 80 cu. ft. bottle.

    I have seen the Hobart MIG Gas kit at Tractor Supply and Atwood's. Both places were about $100.00

    Looking at the grizzly site their picture seems wrong. Unless they're only sending you the inner tube for the gun? A bit weird..

    Even more late to the party, as I'm searching through, here's what I found on the Hobart forum:

    http://www.hobartwelders.com/weldtal...98&postcount=4

    Since the Hobart 125 already has an internal gas valve, thus all you need:
    To weld with shielding gas with this model, the user must change the output polarity and supply the shielding gas and regulator

    Contacted Grizzly and they confirmed that the $60 they're selling is the exact same that Hobart is selling -

    I ended up purchasing this kit as most of the spare parts would've cost me just as much separately.

    There are NO disadvantages to using gas other than lugging a tank around if you need to take it on the road.
    That machine will be a real joy to use once you start using gas.
    Cleaner / prettier welds, better puddle control, no slag to bang off.......
    You'll see!
    Just keep your flow down to about 20-25 cfm. Any more than that is a waste and will create turbulence sucking air into your arc and causing porosity.
    Good luck!
    Measure twice, cut once.
