Hobart 40i Plasma Cutter Review
Updated January 2018
Hobart is a quality machine manufacture who is well know in metal fabrication for simple machines with great performance.
The 40i is about $500 cheaper than comparable 40 amp machines from Hypertherm and Miller. Meaning you get most of the same functionality for less money.
Great parts availability from Hobart as well as other after market brands.
Rated to cut 7/8″ steel.
Consumables are well priced and widely available.
Rather simplistic design and interface.
Build quality is slightly lower than that of Miller and Hypertherm. However, still very good compared to most cheap chinese machines.
