Helmet darkens in 1/20,000 second

The new Prowler Series auto-darkening welding helmets from Hobart have the fastest switching speeds and largest viewing field of all Hobart models.

The viewing area is 2-3/8 by 3-7/8 inches. The lens darkens in 1/20,000 of a second after arc start. You can adjust the darkness from No. 9 to No. 13.

Hobart Welding Products designed the Prowler Series to be durable and lightweight. The helmet weighs 11 ounces. Easy-to-replace lithium batteries last up to 3,000 hours when MIG welding. Ratchet-style headgear and CoolMax odour-absorbing sweatband reduce hair pinching and improve comfort.

Hobart offers its helmets through farm and hardware retailers in the U. S. and Canada. Prowler Series helmets have an MSRP of $329, but prices and availability may vary by retailer.

Hobart helmets come with a two-year warranty. For information on selecting the right helmet for your application and budget, visit www.HobartWelders.comor call 1-877-462-2781.
