Dave Budd Posted September 1, 2016 Share Posted September 1, 2016 I'm after some plasma cutter advice I've been using a 'cheapy' (still not cheap!) Fusion I-cut 40 for the last couple of years, but it is frustrating me on anything thicker than a few mm of steel (specifically high carbon tool steels). So I'm looking to upgrade. It's a toss up between the Hypertherm Powermax 30 and the Oxford Cutmaker 350. Both are apparently good machines, but the crux of it is that I have to run it from a 7.5Kv generator (so nothing bigger than those two will work anyway!). With my arc welder and current plasma I have gone with inverter machines on account of them being made for generators, but they are also impossible to fix (expensive replacement electronics, as I have found) and still don't work properly when used off a 40 year old genny (despite what the manufacturers claim!). The foilbles of inverters is the reason I'm wondering if the Oxford may work better? Does anybody have any experience of either of these machines, specifically using them with a generator? thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
