    Hobart Champion 16 welder. Is it decent?

    Now I know it's not a lincoln or even a miller yet, so besides that is a decent welder?

    Just bought one w/ trailer and torch set up. Has 425 hours on it. New carb. Seems to weld decent.

    I'm not going to weld for a living, but have several projects I could use it for and are planning building a weld up building.

    Sorry about the sidewinder pic. It wasn't like that on my phone and I don't see how to correct it.

    Thanks

    Yep, that's a real Hobart with the disappearing lettering on the panel. Those welded every bit as well as a Miller Bobcat of the same vintage. If you like the way it welds it should be a fine machine.
