ESAB HandyPlasma 380
This package comes fully assembled straight out of the box and is ready to deliver amazing cutting power for a small budget.
The Plasma Cutting Machine itself comes with everything that previous models have, and of course, new features with one being the additional variable output design, that allows the operator to turn down the power output for more precise cutting of thin metals.
Another point we must raise about this particular version is it’s user-friendliness!
Yes! The Handyplasma 380 plasma cutter is very user friendly and ESAB claims that it’s operation is so simple, that you can do drag or standoff cutting with little or no training. This has a lot to do with the fact that it comes a template following feature, which allows it’s user to follow simple curves or straight lines that they can outright duplicate with ease.

What do we think?
Amazing unit with many alternate consumable parts such as the cheaper china imitations. Due to it’s end of production, this plasma cutter’s price has been slashed by almost half in some retail stores. Though hard to find, but at times you can find a second hand model for something like $600 which is really a bargain considering the job it can do for you. Not to mention the fact that it weights at just 10kg, so transportation is definitely not a big issue.
