I was originally looking for a new portable tool and wasn’t really sure which one to opt for. However, eventually I decided this would be the one for me and haven’t looked back since. It is a very nice little plasma cutter and super easy to move around and use.

Badly Packaged

When the item arrived at my door I was pretty horrified, the box looked as though it had been dropped and looked damp and immediately thought it wasn’t going to work. I have to admit it was the worst packaging I have seen. Before I even opened the box I took it inside and called up the company with the number I found online and informed them about the situation. However, the customer service people were very nice and apologized about the condition of the box and said if there were any issues they would correct it (by sending out a replacement).

Anyway, I unpacked carefully and tried the cutter out and was very surprised with how well it worked! Nothing was broken at all and shocking it ran like clockwork. However, I don’t think this was packaged terribly but rather had a slight accident during transit. I am not sure how it was damaged but the only damage seemed to have been done was to the box so I am very grateful for that.

Performance

Despite the issues with transit and the box being damaged, the plasma cutter worked really well. There weren’t any faults I could complain about for the machine. It was very lightweight which it’s supposed to be but I found it to be still quite strong and didn’t expect it to be as good. However, I was happy with how easy it was to use and even if you aren’t experienced using these, you don’t have to be. Take it slow and you should do well.

Negatives

  • Delivery Wasn’t Great
  • Costly
  • Delivery Time Too Long

If I am being honest, I couldn’t fault the machine because it ran well. However, I was disappointed and unhappy with the damage to the box. I was utterly convinced it wouldn’t work but since it did I couldn’t really complain and I did receive a full apology from the company as well. They were only too quick to sort out the issue which I supposed showed it wasn’t something they were aware of. Apart from that, there weren’t really any more issues to worry about. Maybe the price could’ve been cheaper.

Good Points

  • Simple To Use
  • Quality Materials Used In Construction
  • Portable

The Hypertherm is really quite a good plasma cutter. When I first saw this I wasn’t entirely convinced because it looked so tiny compared to the other machines. However, since I have used it, it is strong and cuts through most things very easily as well.

Not Too Shabby

Overall I think I was more pleased with the tool than originally thought. It was quite impressive in terms of its quality and ease of cutting. However, there was only one downside which was the delivery, apart from that everything ran nicely. I was happy with the Hypertherm.
