A change of name? Well…you’re absolutely right and there is every reason why ESAB have named this beast the POWERCUT! Yes! It is very powerful!
Now…this new plasma cutter version comes with everything that previous handyplasma models have, except 3 things.
1) More Comfort (with it’s trigger lock-in feature)
2) More Compatibility (See Specifications)
3) MORE CUTTING POWER! (well..just like you expected…right?)

What do we think?
If you enjoy working with a smaller size torch that is at a 75 degrees angle, then you will absolutely love this plasma cutter unit which comes at an affordable price. In saying that, it is only a handheld machine so you better have steady hands to ensure you can get the most out of it’s cutting power and also wear a pair of safety glove along with other safety equipment to avoid any unnecessary injury.
