Product Description

Hobart AirForce 40i Plasma Cutter with Multi-Voltage Plug — Inverter, 120/240V, 14-40 Amp Output, Model #500576

The Hobart AirForce® 40i Plasma Cutter with Multi-Voltage Plug is an economical plasma cutting system for all conductive metals. With XT series torches, long life XT consumables, and a Pilot Arc Controller feature, you'll appreciate the enhanced performance. It can cut mild steel up to 7/8in. This portable unit features a lightweight, powerful inverter design and an ergonomic trigger safety, with more efficient air consumption and economically priced consumables. Plus the versatile multi-voltage plug (MVP) allows a user to connect to common 120V or 240V power receptacles. Plasma cutters cut faster and more precisely with a thinner kerf and less slag than cutting with oxy fuel. A smaller heat-affected zone also causes less warping. And you'll never have gas pressure settings, flame tuning, metal preheating, or gas cylinders or refills to worry about. Features Hobart’s 5/3/1 limited warranty protection.


  • Dual-Voltage capability with MVP (Multi-Voltage Plug) allows you to connect to common 120 or 240V power receptacles without the use of any tools, simply choose the plug that fits the receptacle
  • Clean cuts 5/8in. mild steel; severs steel up to 7/8in. thick
  • 12ft. XT40R torch – designed for increased comfort with an ergonomic trigger safety, extremely flexible cables, more efficient cooling and economical replacement XT series cutting tips for long life
  • Duty Cycle: 50% @ 40 Amps
  • Pilot Arc Controller allows you to cut expanded/perforated metals, as well as painted or coated surfaces, without retriggering the torch
  • Wind Tunnel Technology™ prevents abrasive dust and particles from damaging internal components
  • Fan-On-Demand™ cooling system operates only when needed, reducing power consumption and contaminants drawn into the machine
  • Power factor correction (PFC) circuitry draws up to 30% less amperage for the same cutting range as compared to the competition
  • PFC expands operator's work area via extension cord, while minimizing nuisance circuit breaker trips caused by voltage drops
  •  LVC™ line voltage compensation provides peak performance power under variable input voltage conditions (±15%) for steady and cleaner-ending cuts
  • Internal gas/air filter and regulator controls amount of usage and flow of air or gas
  • Starts without high frequency, protecting the unit by not interfering with or damaging controls or computers
  • Diagnostic LED lights for quick troubleshooting of pressure, power and cup situations
  • Postflow cooling circuit extends life of consumables and torch by cooling them with postflow air after trigger is released
  • Automatic gouging consumable detection adjusts gas pressure to optimize performance, eliminating the need for a manual regulator
  • Compatible with engine-driven welders, offering complete cutting capability when powered by an engine-driven welder/generator with a 240V receptacle of 8 kW or more
  • Hobart 5/3/1 industrial warranty — 5-year warranty on transformers, stabilizers and main rectifiers; 3-year warranty on generators, PC boards and drive systems; 1-year warranty on guns (MIG, Plasma and TIG torches)
