What do we think?
The Hobart 250ci plasma cutter is the perfect metal cutting machine for home or hobby use where light metal cutting are often needed instead of thicker industrial pieces. Don’t let it’s maximum rated cut specs trick you because this machine does struggle with 1/4 inch, especially if you’re planning to cut stainless steel in which it’s capacity will be even less. In saying that, if you’re only cutting or piercing through thinner pieces of steel when this cutter is MORE than enough to get the job done. Otherwise, please see the Hobart 500i for more power.
