Powermax45 XP plasma system

Where to buy

About

Meet the newest member of our best-selling line of Powermax® portable plasma systems. The Powermax45® XP delivers increased cut capacity – up to 16 mm (5/8”) metal – as well as faster cut speeds, and automatic gas adjustment for quick, simple setup and operation. New Duramax® Lock torches support handheld and mechanized cutting of a wider range of metal thicknesses, along with precision gouging such as spot weld removal, and marking capabilities.

 

“My Powermax45 XP worked excellently to cut out bad iron and remove old welds from a 50 ton lowboy trailer I was rebuilding. I was cutting T1 and A656 steel and washing 7018 and AR90 welding rod and wire. I especially liked having the ability to precision gouge. The gouging mode worked way better than I expected. It was so easy to control. I made several light passes on the weld to remove it instead of trying to remove it all at once. It worked so well it helped cut my grinding time in half. I can’t speak highly enough about the system. It has been invaluable for a job like this. Considering the cost of a different trailer or having a shop repair it, the Powermax is more than worth the purchase price and cost for consumables. I estimate it has saved me thousands of dollars in labor costs.”
