APPLETON, Wis., April 4, 2011 - Hobart Welding Products introduces the Handler 210MVP, a new wire feed welder now with a Multi-Voltage Plug (MVP) that provides the flexibility to use either 115V or 230V input power. With a simple twist – no tools required – the MVP allows users to quickly and easily connect to 115V or 230V receptacles. They just choose the correct plug to fit the receptacle, connect it to the Handler 210MVP’s power cord and start welding. The Handler 210MVP automatically adjusts itself to the correct input power to ensure superior arc performance. In addition to providing 210 amps of welding power packed into a portable case, the Handler 210MVP offers enough output to weld 3/8-inch thick mild steel, as well as the precise control needed for welding 24 gauge material.
The Handler 210MVP offers seven output voltage settings (taps) and infinite wire feed speed control options, making the unit easy to adjust for different materials, thicknesses and wires. When plugged into 115V power, the 210MVP utilizes four voltage settings (taps) and has 140 amps of weld output. When plugged into 230V power, it uses all seven taps and 210 amps of weld output. Both offer fine control of the output parameters to provide consistent arc performance with less spatter and better weld bead appearance.
The Handler 210MVP features an integrated spool gun control circuit that allows direct plug-in of the spool gun (sold separately), along with a selector switch that permits a quick and easy changeover between the MIG gun and spool gun.
Included with the Handler 210MVP is a comfortable 10-foot MIG gun and 10-foot work cable with clamp. Other features of the new Handler 210MVP wire feed welder include a sample spool of .030-inch self-shielding flux-cored wire; .030 inch contact tips; a spool hub assembly that accommodates 4- or 8-inch spools; and dual-groove quick-change drive rolls that ease changeover between wire diameters.
Hobart Welding Products backs the Handler 210MVP with its 5/3/1 Industrial Warranty: a five-year warranty on transformers; three-year protection on electronics; and a one-year warranty for guns.
