Refurbished units are clean condition and most look brand new, but some may have some minor dings.  Most are unused returns that have never been fired up except during testing.   If there has been prior use, it is very minimal.  Our welders are manufacturer refurbished by Hobart.  All units are fully tested for performance and guaranteed to work like new.  They come with a one year manufacturer's warranty.

Need to cut steel? Thinking about an oxy acetylene cutting torch to do the job? Consider a plasma cutter. This simple technology uses an electrical arc and compressed air to cut steel, aluminum, and other conductive metals.

Designed to cut up to 1/4" mild steel, the AirForce™ 12ci is powered by standard household current (120 VAC). A built-in air compressor and lightweight inverter power supply make this plasma cutter the most convenient, totally portable cutting system available. The AirForce™ 12ci excels at cutting sheet metal and 1/8" mild steel, and can even sever 1/4" steel.

  • AirForce 12ci plasma cutter
  • XT12R handheld plasma torch with 12ft. torch lead
  • Work clamp with 12ft. cable
  • 6ft. power cord with 115V plug

  • Inverter Design - Powerful cutting ability at half the weight of prior model (AirForce 250A). Weighs only 27 lbs.
  • Built-in Air Compressor - Internal piston-driven air compressor makes the system highly portable. No additional compressor to purchase or transport. Pressure is preset... ready to cut, right out of the box.
  • New High-Performance Ergonomic Torch - The new XT12R torch is designed for increased comfort, more efficient cooling and longer lasting cutting tips.
  • Powered by 120V, 20 amp Circuit - Runs on standard household power. No need for 230 volt hookup by utility company.
  • Post-flow Air Cooling - Cools the torch and tip after cutting, extending life of replaceable tip and electrode.
  • Fan-On-Demand - Runs only when needed reducing dust/debris pulled into unit.
  • Diagnostic Lights - LED lights indicate system status for power, temperature, and torch readiness eliminating unnecessary downtime.
  • Thermal Overload Protection - Built to withstand tough working environments. Rated for 35% duty cycle at 104° Fahrenheit. Duty cycle will increase as environmental temperature decreases.
