  • Looking for info on this Hobart GCCF-510

    Hi Everyone!

    Looking for information & a manual for this welding machine
    It is a Hobart GCCF-510
    What can anyone tell me about it? I am interested in getting it running and using it as my primary machine for my mobile rig.

        I have an old hobart GB-318, and have a fairly good copy of the manual for it. Panel and generator look very similar to yours, but mine is probably older. What a wonderful welding arc! Mine has a Chrysler Industrial in-line six. If you don't find a manual for yours, I'd be happy to copy mine for you, which might be close--maybe better than none.

          I cross posted this over on Hobart's support welding discussion forums, one of their support staff shot me a copy of the manual
          I am looking forward to restoring this!!
          appears to be a 500 A machine; weighs in at 1900 lbs

          can't wait to get it home and start tinkering with it.

            I learned to weld some where around 1960 with an old Hobart engine drive-have never seen a nicer arc. You're gonna love it.

                WELL since someone asked...
                what I would like to do would be to

                have my generator technician friend check it out

                pull the sheet metal apart
                line-x the top cover
                powder coat the front, back and side panels
                re-etch the ID plate and the control ' steering wheel '
                have some decals made for the front panel connections
                install rebuilt meters ( or have them sent out for rebuilding and then re-install )
                install an hour meter

                etc. etc. etc.

                You guys know how it is, you have seen rebuilt welding machines before.
                Going to give the rebuilt Lincoln SA-250 crowd a run for their money for sure )
