Hobart Champion® Elite 225 Welder/Generator #500562 / 11,000 Watt AC Generator

Designed to be a jobsite workhorse, the Hobart Champion ELITE combines an 11,000 watt generator with a DC welder for general construction and emergency power applications. The Hobart Champion Elite is designed for Stick welding with quick and easy arc starts. It also performs general scratch-start DC TIG. It features a rugged, fully enclosed case which provides a protective barrier and lowers noise.

All receptacles on the ELITE feature push-button reset circuit breakers. Auxiliary power while welding gives you the capability to run other equipment (lights, grinders) at the same time you are welding. With the quick set current control, it is easy to set up, provides smooth arc starts and maintains optimum arc characteristics. Cables sold separately.

Product Questions and Answers

Q - What engine does this have? A - It's a Kohler CH730 gasoline engine. It takes regular 87 octane fuel with ethanol blends up to 10%.
Q - Could this be used for MIG? A - It's not a good machine for MIG work. It's a constant current Stick welder, but could be set up for scratch start TIG welding with DC only.
