Product Summary


Play Video

The new AirForce™ 250CI plasma cutter with built-in air compressor features a new lightweight inverter design that is both lightweight and powerful. Built-in compressor for total portability and low system cost. Cuts mild steel up to 1/4in. thick using standard household current. New HP-25 torch is more comfortable, efficient and economical. Plasma cutters cut faster and more precise with a thinner kerf and less slag than cutting with oxy fuel. A smaller heat-affected zone also causes less warping. And you'll never have gas pressure settings, flame tuning, metal preheating, or gas cylinders or refills to worry about.

What's Included

  • (1) AirForce 250CI plasma cutter
  • (1) HP-25 handheld plasma torch with 16.5ft. torch lead
  • (1) Work clamp with 16.5ft. cable
  • (1) 7ft. power cord with 115V plug
  • (2) Tips
  • (2) Electrodes
  • (1) Owners manual
