Performance Right Out of the Gate

Complete and Ready to Go

This impressive welding package comes complete with everything you need: built-in MIG gas solenoid valve, dual-gauge regulator, gas hose, 10ft. work lead, 8in. wire spool adapter and more. The package also includes a SpoolRunner 100 spoolgun (Item# 20868) that makes aluminum welding easier than ever!

Easy Setup

Setup is a breeze with this unit, and once you're ready to go, the Handler 190 is capable of running flux core steel, solid and aluminum wire — a versatility that's hard to beat.

230V AC Power to Get the Job Done

The welder is powered by 230V AC input service, giving you all the juice you'll need to weld 24ga. to 5/16in. steel in a single pass.

Versatility is Standard Equipment

Match Your Project with Adjustable Settings

Choose from 7 different voltage settings, and then take advantage of enhanced magnetics and infinite wire-feed speed control. You'll end up with fine output control that allows for improved arc performance with less spatter, and that means great looking beads with less cleanup.

One Drive Roll, Two Sizes

The dual-groove, quick-change drive roll makes it super quick and easy to change from one wire size to another. The unit has one knurled groove as well as one smooth groove, allowing it to hold 2 different wire sizes at the same time. Choose from 0.030–0.035in. (0.8–0.9mm) wire sizes.

Go From Solid to Tubular Wire in a Snap

The convenient polarity changeover system with tip holder access makes it quick and easy to change polarity for solid or tubular wire. There are even convenient storage holes built right in to hold your spare tips.

Aluminum Welding Made Easy

Integrated spoolgun control circuitry is standard with this welder, so no additional control box or adapter is required to connect the SpoolRunner 100 spoolgun (included). This easy-to-setup spoolgun enhances wire feedability and reduces the hassles and frustrations of bird-nesting that often occurs with soft aluminum wires.

State-of-the-Art Components

A Tidy Solution

Storage Area Keeps You Organized

A handy storage area is built right into the welder cabinet, making it quick and easy to stow away or access spare contact tips, nozzles and drive rolls.

The Settings Are at Your Fingertips

No more fumbling through manuals and delaying your start while trying to find the correct initial welding settings. A handy door chart offers quick reference to all the wire, gas, material and thickness settings you need. It's the perfect quick-starting point for novices and professionals alike.

Built for Lasting Performance

High-Output Duty Cycle

With 25–190 Amperage output and a 30% duty cycle @ 130 Amps, you get the power and welding performance you need to make your efforts more productive.

Smooth Wire Feeds

The durable feed head features a quick-release drive roll tension lever that helps to deliver positive wire feed with adjustable tension control. The easily accessible system also makes threading new wire a breeze.

It's As Safe and Easy As Pulling the Trigger

The built-in contactor makes this welder very easy to operate and improves safety by keeping the wire electrically "cold" until the spoolgun trigger is pulled.

This Drive System Goes the Extra Mile

Rugged is the perfect word to describe the Handler 190's drive system. Manufactured from tough industrial cast aluminum, you can rest assured that this unit is built for extended durability.

Safety is Built Right In

A self-resetting thermal overload system protects the unit in the toughest applications, while short circuit protection guards against current overload. You also get self-resetting motor protection, which protects against wire feed overload, effectively eliminating the need to change fuses or reset circuit breaker buttons.

Built for Lasting Performance

Weld with Quality and Confidence That's Made in the U.S.A.
