Heavy Equipment

Big jobs depend on heavy equipment. Heavy equipment depends on Hobart® filler metals.

Critical components. Rugged framework. Bound together in one hardworking machine. To create that machine, you need filler metals you can count on: Hobart® filler metals.

Inconsistent filler metals create rework and reduce throughput. Variations in filler metal quality can decrease throughput and cost you money. Get the welding productivity you need with precisely formulated Hobart filler metals. 

Consistent performance is just one reason why Tigercat® forestry equipment depends on Hobart — and so can you.

It’s the tie that binds POWER + PRECISION.

Tigercat® forestry equipment is the most rugged in the world. See why their heavy equipment is built using Hobart filler metals.
