  • Miller and Hobart

    It was my impression that the Diversion165 and the Hobart165i are exactly the same machine, and came off the same assy line. Am I wrong?

    I have been told the same thing and believe it to be true... just compare specs and manuals...

    here is the Hobart

    here is the Miller

    http://www.millerwelds.com/om/o232895g_mil.pdf

    looks the same to me.... you decide...

    they share other models as well... the only difference being paint color..

        yep all part of the same ITW family.... but interestingly enough you often find the Hobart version of the same machine discounted a little deeper than the Miller...

              What was the difference between the Maxstar 150stl and the hobart 150sti that was only out for a short time? Could those machines really have been any different

                Likely cheap AZZ accessories on the Hobart version.

                  The HoFarts tend to have more plastic parts on their machines as well.
