When it comes to buying a plasma cutter, one of the important thing to look out for is the product code of the machine. You see, there are many variations and versions in any plasma cutting machine brand, so if you’re not careful, you may end up buying a totally wrong unit, even though they might look the same in the picture. Always double check the product code with the manufacturer website product code against the code displayed on the Amazon website. This will not only ensure that the right unit is shipped out to you by the internet giant. You are also protecting yourself in the worst case scenario that the wrong product code was shipped, which happens very rarely with Amazon.
All plasma cutters have very similar product description because their functionality and purpose are basically the same, and that is to cut metal fast, easily and effortlessly. The only problem with buying from Amazon is that sometimes, the description they put up on the website can be rather lack of details compared to the manufacturers. It will only show brief details such as the weight, rated output, duty cycle and cut capacity, so it is always advisable to check thoroughly on the manufacturer’s website to ensure you are familiar for other important features of the machine such as debris control, air flow system, whether it requires an external air compressor and so on.
We have compiled a list of manufacturer website below, so please check thoroughly according to the brand and model version you are after to ensure you’re not missing any important information that you should know about.
Once you have confirmed all the relevant features, buttons, controls and functions, then you can note down the product code and head to Amazon to search for the unit you want at a cheaper price.
Read Customer Reviews
We simply cannot stress how IMPORTANT it is to read customer reviews and being one of the largest online retailers in the world, Amazon has the advantage of providing lots of “REAL CUSTOMER” reviews that you can read through to determine whether the plasma cutter you are planning to purchase is indeed a good quality product that can get the job done. Let’s face it, every company will tell you that their machine can handle a beast, but as consumers it is up to us to decide what suits us best and there’s no better than doing so by check on other consumer’s experience on using the unit.
The beauty about these reviews is that they are 100% genuine and most shoppers will not hesitate to express their appreciation, if their purchase was good, or anger, if they had a terrible experience or if the plasma cutting machine simply ain’t doing it’s job. They also have a 5 star rating system, so you can easily go through them picking out the best units with a few clicks of a button. Don’t forget to also check out our professional reviews on some of the top brands.
Retail Price & Customer Service
Now do we really need to tell you why Amazon has some of the best retail prices in the world? Afterall, they are the largest online retailer so it only makes sense that they handle large quantities of products, hence are able to mark down their prices significantly. In saying that, we don’t believe their prices will be the lowest you can find online, especially with auction websites such as Ebay where individuals to small businesses can list up items to reduce their stock levels at a lower price. Then this will come down to customer service and if we had to choose between ebay and amazon in this regards, then we will simply have to choose Amazon due to their reputation and operation standards compare to…well you know.
