  • Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter
Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 147.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Got this to do floor work on my old chevys, got set up but didn't use it for a few days, My buddy came over who never use one, so we spent next 3 hours play with it, I'm very impressed with how easy it is to use from different setting to metal thickness. It only took me 20 minutes to cut the rusty floor out of my 52 tin woody, much better then cut off saw or torch. I chose this one because of the long leads and the 3year warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice machine I have only had the machine for a week looks like well built tool. I have only used it once just to try it out and was happy the set-up was easy and the 16 gauge steel cut like butter. Will do another review in a few weeks after more testing. PS. the customer service is great the machine comes with a handheld mask mine had a broken lens i emailed them and they shipped me a new one will be shopping more at Eastwood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall a great unit I received this plasma cutter several days before it was expected. I have used it twice so far making practice cuts on scrap metal. A little bit of a learning curve but not hard at all. Great machine for the money. I’ll be using it in the shop building classics & hotrods.

is the 220 plug on this machine a standard industry plug , or does it have to be changed , which voids warranty

Asked by: leeroy
This Plasma cutter comes with a standard NEMA 6-50R and that is for you 220V. There is a short cord that plugs into the plug from the plasma cutter and the other end of that cord plugs in to a standard house hold outlet.

I have a Nema 6-50R receptacle in my garage. Can I place a 6-50p plug on this machine and will it function properly?

Asked by: Chuck

Versa-Cut 40 Plasma Cutter easily slices through materials up to 3/8" thick.

Versa Cut 40-Amp Plasma Cutter

The Eastwood-designed plasma cutter is your smartest choice for making clean, fast cuts through steel, stainless steel or aluminum as thin as 24 gauge or as thick as 3/8-inch. Compared to mechanical cutting, our Versa Cut 40 Plasma Cutter works significantly faster and makes curved and intricate cuts more easily and precisely. This is our best all-around plasma cutter and will handle most auto restoration, fabrication or repair work. The power, portability and affordability make it an essential tool for those who need to quickly slice through metal parts.

**Due to the High Frequency start feature, we do not recommend using this machine on a CNC plasma table.**

The Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter Features:

  • Works with 110v or 220v AC input
  • 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
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.

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.

Ready-to-Go Cutter

The Versa Cut 40 Plasma Cutter comes with Trafimet CB50 torch and 20-foot cable plus a 10-foot ground clamp assembly for safely getting around your work. It comes with our 100 percent customer satisfaction guarantee and free tech support by phone, email or the Eastwood Garage.
