This tool is unmatched in its category and it can weld mild steel materials that are up to 1/2 inch thick in a single phase and offers 60% duty cycle at 175A. It can also weld stainless steel and aluminum, including many other metals. Hobart Ironman 230 is ideal for light industrial applications.
Portability and Flexibility
This MIG welding unit is quite large and heavy in weight, weighing around 185 pounds. Due to its weight, this tool is somewhat very less portable and cannot be moved around often. So, it’s not recommended for outdoor sites or rental shops. Also, it’s not compatible with generators.
Hobart Ironman 230 can operate on input power of 230V, making it good for industrial sites and not very much applicable for household tasks as it cannot be operated on normal household power supply outlet, and requires special setup. It’s just perfect if you are likely to use it for large workshop or garage.
