Champion 10,000 Welder/Generator Brings Added Versatility to the Job Everyday

The Champion 10,000 welder/generator from Hobart Welding Products offers a two-for-the-price-of-one deal. Every buyer gets a generator and a welder for a price that some people pay for a generator alone. Powered by a 20 hp OHV, twin-cylinder Kohler engine or a 22 hp OHV Subaru engine, this machine produces 10,000 watts of peak auxiliary power and a 210-amp constant current, DC weld output at 60 percent duty cycle.

When farmers, ranchers, contractors, fabricators, maintenance personnel, service truck owners and serious do-it-yourselfers need auxiliary or emergency back-up power, a welder/generator is the best investment they can make. The evidence is in a machine that runs motors, powers tools and appliances and provides Stick as well.

The Champion 10,000 boasts 9,500 watts of continuous power (while not welding) from four 120 V (20 amp) receptacles and one 120/240 V (50 amp) receptacle. All receptacles feature push-button reset circuit breakers. Auxiliary power is not available while welding.

The unit provides excellent starting capabilities for motors in the three to five hp range. It can run for up to nine hours on one, 10-gallon tank of gas under a steady load of 4,000 watts. Unlike competitive units, the rheostat does not have to be set to maximum for full auxiliary output.

On the welding side, the Champion 10,000 features Hobart™s patented Field Current Control (FCC) technology for smooth Stick arc starts with minimal sticking of the rod. The FCC monitors feedback from the welding arc and continuously adjusts the current from the generator to maintain optimum arc characteristics.

The Champion 10,000 has a 50 to 230 amp output for welding with 6010, 6011, 6013 and 7018 rods up to 3/16 inch and 7014 and 7024 rods up to 5/32 inch. The machine also is suitable for general scratch start DC TIG and limited flux cored welding (CC flux cored welding only). In addition, the unit can be used for MIG welding aluminum when paired with the optional Olympic 30A spool gun and HWC-115A weld control.

Hobart backs all power sources with its 5/3/1 warranty, which covers the transformer for five years, the switches, controls and valves for three years and the torch for one year. Engines are covered separately by the manufacturer. For a detailed spec sheet or free literature, visit call 1-877-HOBART1 (462-2781) or write to Hobart Welding Products at P.O.
