Of course, like with any device, there are more details that we could list. However, we feel like these, along with this product's Top Features, are the things to pay the most attention to.

If you are reading this, you are here to pick the best possible CNC plasma cutter. To make the right choice you need to be fully informed. For that reason, let's review everything we like and dislike so that you can judge for yourself.

Light and portable

Light and portable

Whether you're looking for a new plasma cutter for an industrial workshop or for your very own hobby, you will find this one to be easy to handle and carry around. It's immensely ergonomic and has a built-in handle that only makes it easier to pick up.

Moving vs staying stationary in a workshop setting depends on a few factors, and it's good to ask yourself about them before making your purchase. If your workshop is spacious, it's likely that you may need to walk from place to place at a time. In those situations, a portable plasma cutter is invaluable.

It also depends on the type of material you will be using. There may be times when you simply have to walk over to the material as opposed to bringing it to yourself. This, once again, makes a maneuverable plasma cutter very handy - literally.

This is where the HEROCUT plasma cutter shines. The design is undoubtedly compact - you can tell that this machine was made to be carried around when needed. It only weighs 16 lbs, which is extremely light for a plasma cutter.

16 lbs are easy enough to carry no matter how you spin it, but combined with the ergonomic handle that this product has, you will find this one to be as portable as it gets.

Smooth, clean cuts

Portable as it is, this is a strong machine capable of delivering precise and smooth cuts without leaving slag. The people that already own this machine praise the clean cuts that they are able to achieve using it.

Worth noting is that this is a CUT55 machine. As far as the cutting power goes, it's sure to satisfy most commercial and hobby users.

Let's get specific - HEROCUT delivers a 20mm clean-cut under 70 PSI, and a 25 severance cut. As mentioned above, it does so with ease. It's also quite durable, because of…

Non-HF pilot arc

Non-HF pilot arc

Herocut plasma cutter is a non-HF machine with a pilot arc. This is good for two reasons.

One, the non-HF part. High-frequency machines cannot be safely used around electronics, as they may cause all types of interferences and end up damaging the appliances. They could even break themselves.

The pilot arc is fantastic because it means that your plasma cutter won't actually have to touch the metal in order to cut it. This allows for a greater lifespan of your machine.

Complete set in the box upon purchase

Who likes having to buy extras before even getting to try out your new machine? Pretty much no one. Luckily, HEROCUT is well aware of that, and they equipped this plasma cutter with everything you might need.

In the box, you will find:

  • The plasma cutter itself
  • Non-HF pilot arc cutting torch with cable
  • earth cable
  • air regulator
  • 5 electrodes
  • 5 tips
  • an air hose
  • a comprehensive manual

Solid and powerful

This is a dual-voltage plasma cutter that has an input voltage of 110/220V, making it adjustable to whatever you need to cut at the time. It also has a current range of 20A-50A.

This product is capable of cutting through copper, iron, aluminium, stainless steel & other metals. As one of the satisfied customers' states, it cuts through those metals like butter. There is no praise higher than that for a plasma cutter.

As mentioned, this is a portable plasma cutter, but it has an impressive torch length of 5 meters. The earth cable is 3 meters long.

  • Cons

The machine itself is nearly ideal. We have scoured a lot of websites for negative reviews, but we weren't able to find anything much wrong with this plasma cutter. The only complaints regarded the packaging of the consumables.

Unfortunately, some users report that their consumables were poorly packaged. This did not result in any type of damage to the machine itself, or even the consumables, but we agree that it shouldn't happen.

Remember that if you should be unhappy with the packaging, you are always able to contact the producer and ask for help.
