Designed to be the most convenient, portable cutting system available, Hobart Welding Products
introduced its new plasma cutter, the AirForce™ 250ci
. Featuring a built-in air compressor and lightweight inverter technology, the unit offers powerful cutting abilities and weighs just 27 lbs., half the weight of the previous model. The AirForce 250ci is powered by standard 115 VAC household current, can cut 1/8 in. mild steel and sever 1/4 in. steel. The unit allows cutting with an arc up to 3/16 in. long -- up to three times longer than some competitive units -- which improves results when freehand cutting.
This level of portability for a plasma cutter is an excellent alternative to oxy acetylene systems for home hobby, farming and auto body applications where clean, precise cutting is desired.
Available through farm/ranch and hardware/tool retailers in the US and Canadian markets the AirForce 250ci has an MSRP of $839, prices will vary by retailer.
