    Hobart GW223 saved

    I literally saved this machine from a scrapper yesterday. By the engine serial its a 1956 model. It has electric start and a distributor. Its complete except for the brush cover. Hasn't run in over two years but it turns over. I'll clean the carb, change the gas and try to get it running and hopefully it will weld. Then the cosmetics. Anyone know where I can get a Hobart manual for this baby? or a brush cover? Thanks

    Nice save. That will be a neat little machine when it's fixed up. Almost looks like that trailer could be cleaned up to compliment the machine.

    Looks very similar to my G-213. I have the manual that covers the TJD and the TFD. Also the G-213 manual. PM me your E-mail add and I'll shoot them to you.

    Try the Hobart Weldtalk website. Plenty of information in the engine-driven section.

    I have a similar Hobart, can't remember the Model# right now. Same Wisconsin engine, Wisconsin (Continental ?) has exceptional customer service and support. Good luck!
