APPLETON, Wis., June 9, 2008â€”Hobart Welding Products introduces the most affordable graphic welding helmets on the market with the debut of the U.S. Flag and Tribal Flame designs. Both styles are a part of Hobart™s Fixed-Shade Non-Auto Darkening helmet line, which features a #10 fixed-shade lens measuring 4.5- x 5.25-in. This large window is ideal for hobbyists, farmers and home mechanics who occasionally Stick, MIG, Flux Cored and TIG weld.
Offered through farm/ranch and hardware/tool retailers in the U.S. and Canada, the U.S. Flag and Tribal Flame Fixed-Shade welding helmets have an MSRP of $35; however, prices and availability may vary by retailer.
Helmet graphics allow welders to make a statement about who they are,â€ states Caleb Krisher, product manager at Hobart. Hobart recognized that it was time to give the entry-level, fixed-shade helmets an attitude adjustment. The new U.S. Flag and Tribal Flame designs command attention while maintaining the simplicity, excellent comfort, and safety at an affordable price.â€
