Product Overview:


Versa Cut 40-Amp Plasma Cutter

Enjoy professional cutting power on small and medium metal fabrication projects by choosing the Eastwood Versa-Cut 40. This portable plasma cutter has a 40-amp adjustable output to cleanly slice through steel between 24-gauge and 3/8-inch thick. You can use it on stainless steel and aluminum, too. The Versa-Cut 40 weighs just 36 pounds, requires only 5-7 CFM of compressed air and can plug into a 110-volt or 220-volt power input. This combination means you can bring your Eastwood plasma cutter anywhere it’s needed.

Whether you’re a passionate automotive restorer, industrial repairman or metal artist, a mid-duty plasma cutter is a must for your workbench. The Trafimet CB50 torch has a 20-foot cable for maneuvering as you create intricate cuts that mechanical cutters can’t match. A 60% duty cycle gives you plenty of time to complete long cuts. We have the Versa-Cut 40 plasma cutter for sale online, via our catalog or in a retail store near you. It’s backed by a 3-year warranty and our lifetime tech support.

The Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter Features:

  • Works with 110v or 220v AC input
  • Easily slices through metal up to 3/8" thick
  • 20' torch cable; 10' ground cable with clamp
  • Rated 40-amp output
  • Uses common consumables that are available at Eastwood or most welding supply stores
  • Backed by Eastwood's no-hassle 3-year warranty
**Due to the High Frequency start feature, we do not recommend using this machine on a CNC plasma table.**

Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter

Premium Metal Cutting Power

This innovative, affordable, plasma cutter was designed and developed by Eastwood's own R&D staff and tested in-house on the same type of real-life projects you'll use it for. It doesn't matter where you need to work, because this plasma cutter's voltage-sensing technology lets you use either a 110v or 220v outlet with our adapter cord. It can cut through 1/8-thick metal on 110v power, enough for thin-gauge sheet metal and light fabrication. This portable plasma cutter is lightweight as well, weighing just 36 pounds so you can easily bring it along or plug it into a generator.

Inverter technology offers superior arc stability and plasma cutting power. A built-in pilot arc system allows for instant arc striking and ease of use when cutting rusty material and expanded metal. The internal moisture separator helps to ensure clean dry air gets to the torch to give you consistent results. With a duty cycle of 60 percent, this plasma cutter will cut at 40 amps for up to six minutes before it needs to cool. It also requires just 5 to 7 cfm of air at 60 psi, which can be supplied by common shop compressors. You can easily adjust the amperage and air pressure using the dials.

Application Tips

Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter Accessories

What is "Plasma Cutting"?

Plasma cutting tools utilize a high-velocity jet of ionized gas (plasma) that conducts electricity from the torch of the plasma cutter to your metal workpiece. That directed plasma stream (about 30,000 degrees F) heats the work piece, converting the metal to molten slag. That high-velocity stream literally blows the molten metal away, leaving clean, precisely cut metal. With a 40-amp plasma cutter, you can do more in your body shop or race car garage.
