Product Overview:

Description

Versa Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter

Enjoy professional cutting power on small and medium metal fabrication projects by choosing the new and improved Eastwood Versa-Cut 40 Plasma Cutter. This portable plasma cutter has a 40-amp adjustable output to cleanly slice through steel from 24-gauge to 3/8-inch thick. You can use it on stainless steel and aluminum, too. The Versa-Cut 40 weighs just 24 pounds, requires only 5-7 CFM of compressed air and can plug into a 120-volt or 240-volt power input, making it an exceptionally versatile and portable unit that you can bring 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. Our confidence in the quality and performance of this machine is shown by the 3-year warranty, 90 day return policy and our lifetime tech support.

This new and improved machine includes 2T/4T modes for smoother long cuts, a breaker switch, digital amperage readout for increased precision as well as modern IGBT Inverter Technology. Plus it's lighter and more portable than ever!

The Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter Features:

  • Works with 120v or 240v 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
  • Lightweight and portable at less than 24 lbs!
  • 2T/4T Torch Mode for smoother long cuts
  • Digital amperage readout for increased precision
  • Durable 60% Duty Cycle @ 40 amps on 240v and 60% @ 30 amps on 120v
  • 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.**


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 120v or 240v outlet with our adapter cord. It can cut through 1/8-thick metal on 120v power, enough for thin-gauge sheet metal and light fabrication. This portable plasma cutter is lightweight as well, weighing less than 24 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. Amperage and air pressure is easily adjusted on the front of the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vera cut 40 For the price you can’t beat it. Cut a whole 4x4 3/16 sheet of steel up into parts no issues. My only complaint would be the ground clamp is thin and seems cheap bent it already. Easy to swap out for a beefier clamp.

I need to replace the torch and ground cable on a Versa Cut 40. Can I get the part numbers for these? Thank you.

Asked by: RonM
If you have the 2-pin metal trigger plug style you need #20173 https://www.eastwood.com/torch-assembly-versa-cut-40-metal-plug.html Very old Cut 40 versions may have a plastic trigger connector in which case you will need #12811 https://www.eastwood.com/plasma-cutter-torch-assembly.html For the ground cable the replacement is #21263 https://www.eastwood.com/ground-cable-200-amp-dinse.html
