Excellent valueReview by GregW
Just as I expected from Eastwood, another great product at a good price. I have the TIG 200 also, which is terrific. The plasma cuts so easy, right out of the box, I was cutting like a pro. Never tried plasma before... I'll never use oxy-acetylene again. My new favorite tool. (Posted on 21/09/2018)
A 10th of the time!Review by Ac Power
I bought this 16 months ago and couldn't be more pleased. I keep finding more things it will do. If you ever work with steel siding, this is the tool for cutting. Forget snips, nibblers, or cutting wheels. 20' long cuts in a 10th of the time, angle cuts - even compound angles - like pulling a knife through butter. (Posted on 21/09/2018)
Great productReview by Billywizz
Picked up the plasma cutter 2 weeks ago and a few hours of use so far. Very simple to use and setup. I would recommend picking up or ordering extra electrodes and nozzles however as I went through the included 2 fairly quick testing everything out.

I would recommend this to anyone however. (Posted on 21/09/2018)
Cuts like butterReview by small engine physician
Sure beats dragging out the tanks. Just turn on and cut. Alot cleaner cut than oxygen and acetylene. I'm sure glad I bought the plasma cutter. I wish I would've bought it sooner. (Posted on 21/09/2018)
Awesome tool!!Review by Anonymoose
This is the best tool I've ever purchased for the price. Easy set up. This is so much better than a cutting torch. I build demo derby cars so I'm constantly cutting. This tool has saved me tons of time!! Buy a stand off tip adapter so you don't burn up your tips. (Posted on 21/09/2018)
Great little unitReview by epohler
I got this as a gift from the wonderful wife. With the adapter included I was able to plug into the 115 outlet and connected the air and cut the corner off my grinder table. I have only had 1/4" thick piece of scrap and it was cut easy and pretty quick. Really great for cutting 12ga. sheet like butter. This little machine works just fine for me and my hobbies, Auto body shops probably love these machines. I do lite metal work and usually wouldn't cut anything thicker then 3/8" anyway. Great little plasma cutter! (Posted on 21/09/2018)
Works great, out of the boxReview by JamesDIY
I ordered this unit just after I had shoulder surgery, and I am just now able to use it. The cutter works great, right out of the box. Will make another post after I have used it longer. If you follow the setup instructions it will work, I have used it for cutting holes in metal that I could not penetrate with any drill bits that I had, I even used gouging welding rods, which would cut a hole in the metal, but it was only as big as the rod, and I couldn't enlarge the hole with any drill bit, the VersaCut easily cut nice holes freehand, through this metal.

Excellent plasma cutterReview by jdzridez
I've used expensive cutters before so i had my doubts on this one being any good for that price let me tell you it works great i cut alot of metal up to around 3/8 mostly thinner stuff but this thing works flawlessly i love it cuts time and blades no more buying blades.but now i see it on sale £50 off i missed out on that one im telling you buy this thing you wont be disappointed.

Better than I could have imaginedReview by Englewood
This is my first purchase from Eastwood. I will be buying more Eastwood products. This product is a true testament to quality and value.

This box took about 10 minutes to set up and I was cutting. I'm running 110v only and have been able to cut 1/8" steel without any problems at all.

High quality clamp and torch with very long cables. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a great plasma cutter at a great price. (Posted on 21/09/2018)
Great For Metal FabricationsReview by itsallgood
I have to admit, I never considered owning a plasma cutter. I've seen a lot of videos on what they can do, but thought I'd never need one. (Even though I'm into car restoration) I was buying some supplies from my local Eastwood shop and saw this one on sale for £549. I asked one of the Frost guys I know about it and he convinced me to buying it. Fast forward 9 months later and I wonder why I waited so long to purchase one.

I normally use a cut-off wheel and metal saw to cut metal. Which makes a mess, takes time to cut and uses a lot of blades. Enter the Versa-cut 40. I've been able to cut through 18 gauge sheet metal like butter with little effort on my part and quick too. There is no slag after the cut, if you have it set up correctly, and move the torch at the correct speed. I really like the drag tip, which makes it easier to make precise cuts, straight or curves. It works off a standard 120V outlet with the included plug adaptor and 240V. Both voltages work great. You won't need the 240V if your cutting light to medium metal.(Metal up to 3/16 steel)

This unit is well made and has some weight to it. I had mine assembled in 15 min. and bought the consumables kit at time of purchase. (Nothing like being in the middle of a project and running out of consumables) The 20' torch cable and 10' grounding cable are very nice and durable. You can set your own pressure with the internal pressure regulator. The torch gun feels really good in the hand and easy to hold and cut with. The settings for the unit are spot on and don't really require adjusting.

My only complaint is the air inlet connector sticks out about 3" out the back, making the plasma cutter stick out the front of my welding cart. (Not to mention attaching my air line is a challenge) So, I installed a 90 degree street elbow with a 3' air line and attached it to the welding cart. This way I won't have to move the plasma cutter to attach my air hose. (Like I do now)

All in all, this plasma cutter works great. There is a learning curve, so practice, practice, practice. (Posted on 21/09/2018)
You need this!Review by Tigger
If you are having trouble cutting out in confined spaces, where the grinder is too large ( or dangerous ) to use, then you need this! Cuts like a dream. If you MIG weld, the learning curve is minimal. Cuts are very precise. Very impressed. (Posted on 10/03/2014)
