    Hobart 125 ez weld

    Hey guys, I am looking at a never used Hobart125 tomorrow. Do you guys think $200 would be a fair price for this unit? I am learning and have only used my crappy HF 90. I do see that the Hobart 125 is DC output, so it would be better than the AC HF 90. I would be using it for fab work on my motorcycle. What do you guys think?

    The EZ will be a huge leap ahead of any HF 90 amp anything but,,, flux core just isn't the easiest to use for thin sheet metal and/or tubing regardless of brand.

    Ditto... love my 125 EZ for outside repairs etc... and it is what I learned to weld on.... but definately need the ability for gas and run .024 wire for any sheet or thin steel work. Fluxcore is simply too hot.
