  • extension cord

    I have a hobart handler 175 and can't find a extension cord for this unit, does anybody know where I could order one or do I need to make one up myself???

    magnum 21,
    I saw a pre-made ext. cord on ebay not long ago.You could check there. If it were me, I'd just make my own. Who knows, may end up cheaper in the long run.

      Ext. cord


      You don't say how far you want to get from your receptacle, but if your best effort does'nt net you a factory made cord in your neck of the woods, you will be fine fabricating your own cord from #10/3 SO wire and the appropriate ends from your local electrical supplier. You can probably go 100' without a problem, but I would be looking at #8/3 SO wire over 50' if $$ are OK.

      Be well.

        BR Welders carries an extension cord!!!!!!!!!

          You will be fine with 10/3 on the 175. Its only a few $ more to get the 8/3; then you would be set fora larger welder in the future. I got mine from Welding Depot before I saw them at BR. Prices are the same either way. It is cheaper to buy made up.

            Extension cord

            I made my own 50 FT cord using 6/3 SO wire. Made a box at the business end that has two different 240 VAC outlets and four 120 VAC outlets. With this set up I have power available for my MIG, stick welder, grinder, fan etc., with one cord.

            If it is one thing I don't need in the work area, it is a bunch of trip hazards. I'm a one man accident looking for a place to happen.

              I must agree with you. Too many extension cords are a hazard. I have done the same thing to power my Coolmate 4 cooler and Dynasty from the same power cable.

                your best bet is to make one just the way you want it. I see your in NY, If you can find i.e. Fleet Farm or Tractor Supply Co. or something in that nature you'll probly find something.

                  I do have a tractor supply by me but the problem is the end has a parralel plug with a round ground and all tractor supply has is a 1/2 moon ground
                  everyone else I appreciate the responses and will probably get the cord made up at Br
