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.

The AirForce™ 40i is an economical plasma cutting system for all conductive metals. Inverter-based design and reliable technology pack a lot of performance into a very portable package. The Airforce™ 40i plasma cutting system is excellent for light and heavy industrial users. Automated operations are also well within its range. Unit is compatible with engine-driven welders when powered with a 240 V generator power outlet of 8 kW or more.


What's In the Box:

  • AirForce® 40i Plasma cutter
  • 12ft. XT40R hand-held torch 
  • 12ft. work cable with clamp
  • 10ft. power cord with plug
  • Extra Consumables (1 electrode, 2 tips, 1 deflector and 1 air fitting)
  • Easy-to-connect, built-in gas/air filter and regulator for extra protection



  • Inverter Design - Powerful cutting ability at just over half the weight of prior model (AirForce 625). Weighs only 31.4 lbs.
  • Auto-Refire™ Technology - Allows operator to cut expanded/perforated metals, as well as painted or coated surfaces, without continuously retriggering the torch.
  • Capable with Engine-Driven Welders - Capable of cutting 3/8 to 5/8 in. mild steel when powered by an engine-driven welder with a 240 V generator power outlet of 8 kW or more.
  • New High-Performance Ergonomic Torch - The new XT40R torch is designed for increased comfort, more efficient cooling and longer lasting cutting tips.
  • 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.
  • Wind Tunnel Technology - Prevents abrasive dust and particles from damaging internal components.
  • 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.
  • Line Voltage Compensation (LVC) - Provides peak performance power under variable input voltage conditions (±15%) for steady and cleaner ending cuts.
  • Power Factor Correction - Expands operator’s work area via extension cords while minimizing nuisance trips caused by voltage drops.
