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. 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. 


  • DC weld output for smooth arc performance and easy starts

  • Heavy-duty construction with 100% duty cycle, fully-enclosed engine design, large battery, rugged electrical connections and wiring

  • "No tools" oil change and standard hour meter to help maintain routine scheduled oil servicing
  • Quick set current control - easy to set up and start welding.

Absolutely the Best Review by Kirk

If you are looking for a generator, look no further. This will suit all your needs. It also doubles as a welder. This is an incredible piece of equipment!! If you are looking to generate power to your house, you will have to either get a separate switch box or if you are competent with electricity, you can wire it directly into your home with it's own breaker. (Just make sure the main is switched off before you turn it's breaker on!!!)
