Miller Spectrum 375 X-TREME Review
This is it my friends, the big dog, the head hancho, the clear winner in best performance category of our “TOP 5 Plasma Cutters of 2014 Competition” The Miller Spectrum 375 X-Treme is our #1 plasma cutter of 2014 for many reasons, so let me elaborate.
What We Like
The Size Of The Unit – The first aspect of this unit that I like is the size. Weighing only 19lbs with a compact form factor and a carrying handle makes this unit incredibly easy to transport.
The Carrying Case – This unit comes with a hard plastic carrying case that holds the plasma cutter itself with extra space for plugs, eye protections, gloves and more. You don’t realize how nice this is until you open up the case a realize that everything you need to work is right inside the box. This reduces the chance of getting out in the workplace and forgetting your eye protection which can cost you time and money (I have done this before and it a major inconvenience).
The Cord Lengths – Both the torch and the grounding cable are 12 ft. long which provides you with plenty of mobility in your workspace. What I enjoyed about this cord length was the fact that I could keep my unit away from the sparks and dropping metal while I worked. Having a longer cord was a really big bonus for us.
The Smooth Cuts – This plasma cutter cuts really smooth. REALLY SMOOTH! I can’t stress this enough. Miller really lives up to their name and makes an awesome plasma cutter. You can tell this a top notch machine after you first few cuts.
On The Spot Changeable Plugs – Whether you need 110 or 220 Miller has you covered. Included with the Spectrum 375 you receive on the fly switchable plugs that allow you to switch from 110 to 220 without having to fiddle with wires. This little detail saved us tons of time in the long run.
What We Didn’t Like
The Price Tag – This Miller plasma cutter comes with a hefty price tag. You definitely do get great qaulity for the price, but it may turn away some weekend warrior buyers.
Limited Availability – These babies are in high demand right now and it took us a week to find one. As of now they seem to be stocked up, but in the beginning we had trouble getting our hands on one.
