Product Summary

The Hobart Air Force® 700i plasma cutter is an economical plasma cutting system for all conductive metals. It can cut mild steel up to 7/8in. This portable unit features a lightweight, powerful inverter design and an ergonomic trigger safety, with more efficient air consumption and economically priced consumables. 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. Features Hobart’s 5/3/1 Industrial warranty protection.

Features for FREE SHIPPING — Hobart AirForce 700i 230V Inverter-Based Plasma Cutter — 40 Amp Output, Model #500546
  • Features 16 1/2ft. torch – designed for increased comfort with an ergonomic trigger safety, more efficient cooling and economical replacement cutting tips
  • Wind Tunnel Technology™ prevents abrasive dust and particles from damaging internal components
  • Fan-On-Demand™ Cooling system operates only when needed, reducing power consumption and contaminants drawn into the machine
  • Power factor correction (PFC) circuitry draws up to 30% less amperage for the same cutting range as compared to the competition. PFC expands operator's work area via extension cord, while minimizing nuisance circuit breaker trips caused by voltage drops
  •  LVC™ line voltage compensation provides peak performance power under variable input voltage conditions (±15%) for steady and cleaner-ending cuts
  • Internal gas/air filter and regulator controls amount of usage and flow of air or gas
  • Starts without high frequency, protecting the unit by not interfering with or damaging controls or computers
  • Diagnostic LED lights for quick troubleshooting of pressure, power and cup situations
  • Cable management strap secures torch, work cable and power cord to make transporting easy and convenient
  • Postflow cooling circuit extends life of consumables and torch by cooling them with postflow air after trigger is released
  • Compatible with engine-driven welders capable of cutting 3/8–5/8 in. mild steel when powered by an engine-driven welder with a 240 V generator power outlet of 8 kW or more
    Hobart 5/3/1 limited warranty
  • Hobart’s 5/3/1 Industrial Warranty: Five-year warranty on transformers, stabilizers and generators; three years on electronics (drive motors, rectifiers); and one year on guns (MIG and plasma torches)
