Ive been using a hobart handler 135 for almost 2 years in an ornamental iron shop. it was originally bought for field work, but it quickly became my primary machine. A friend in the same business uses nothing but lincoln 135 (the home depot model) with about the same luck. both of us use flux cored with, and no shielding gas. the key to that, in my experience is to ignore the manufacturer spec, and use .030 flux cored wire in an .030/.035 liner. the lesser wire diameter lets you get a lot more heat, and throws less breakers than the suggested .035 wire. also to consider, the consumables on the hobart are all miller welder parts, which are easy to find.
hope i was of some help
