New! Easier to store.
50% smaller than the previous model so you need less room to store it.
New! Easier to move.
Weighing only 19 lbs. - a 30% reduction when compared to the previous model - it's easy to move to or within your workspace.
Dual-Voltage capability with MVP (Multi-Voltage Plug)
Allows you to connect to common 120 or 240 V power receptacles without the use of any tools - simply choose the plug that fits the receptacle.
XT30R torch
Designed for increased comfort with an ergonomic trigger safety, more efficient cooling and economical replacement cutting tips.
Wind Tunnel Technology™
Prevents abrasive dust and particles from damaging internal components.
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 operators 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 or air or gas.
Starts without high frequency
Protects unit by not interfering with or damaging controls or computers.
Easy to troubleshoot
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.
Compatible with engine-driven welders
Complete cutting capability when powered by an engine- driven welder/generator with 240V receptacle of 4 kW or more.
Hobart 5/3/1 industrial warranty
Five-year warranty on transformers, stabilizers and main rectifiers; three years on generators, PC boards and drive systems; and one year on guns (MIG, Plasma and TIG torches).
