But if you are looking for a small machine, that works, going to use it at home for hobby or small projects, then this is the machine for you, lower cost than others, Plus no gas cost or hose, regulators, ect
Bottom line: test it when you get it, it's a good system for the price, (update)keep a wire brush handy, about every 2nd cut hit the tip with wire brush, I've found out that by doing this,(while tip is still hot) it extends the life of the tip. it seems that slag blown from the metal sticks on the tip, which causes failure on tip and electrodes,going to try a gel mix on the tip to see if it solves the problem.
product has no country of origin stamp, mark, or sticker on it. not going inside until warranty expires, but it is an import.
Problems I have found
1. Ground way to short, ill fix this after warranty is expired.
2. Ground clamp ( to weak) ill fix this after warranty is expired.
3. Air line (replace it) 70 lbs of air on this thing, and in the heat, it doesn't hold up.
4. Buy extra stand off, I free hand a lot of cutting and the original one is now history. (update) stand off is to short, to close to material. looking for replacement that fits the cup size, hyperthem stand off product doesnt work on these tips.
5. Cut is to large, wide, I can cut finer lines with a gas torch and 000 tip.
6. Buy extra consumables, this thing eats them, I purchased the 40 pcs from amazon I Have used 2 full sets over last month. 2 cups, 2 tips and 2 inter electrodes , Be sure to purchase the correct ones for the system you purchased. LT vs LTD
I began an extensive internet search of plasma cutters. Lotos came out a head of most plasma cutters there's costing two to three times more. Many of their warranties were less inclusive that Lotos.
My final decision to purchase the Lotos plasma cutter was the fact that Amazon offered the product and they are backing my purchase.
When I placed my order I was given a date it would arrive. I am happy to report it arrived two days earlier. The package was in good condition. I opened the box and the Plasma Cutter was packed in foam - safe and secure. All accessories were included as required.
A review of many other reviews reveals that the directions are sparse. My experience was the same. However, a quick review of YouTube video shows it is an easy setup. There were many comments regarding lack of documentation for grounding the machine on the rear of the unit. I used a jumper cable and connected a copper connector to bolt it to the unit and the other end to a water pipe,( a week later I grounded it to a 5 foot copper rod in ground). It works fine.
My workshop has 110 volt plugs. I went to Home Depot and purchased an industrial plug for under $7.00. The directions with the unit were excellent - it went together in less than 5 minutes. If you wanted to connect to 220 volts you would get that plug. The unit detects the voltage change an the machine acts accordingly.
Lotos includes two barbed connectors to connect plasma cutter to the air gauge and to your compressor. Many people complained about air leaking from the connections. I purchased a quick connect from Home Depot as well as better clamps. Buy them in the beginning - save yourself the aggravation! The directions on the unit call for installing the air gauge backwards? I made a new bracket so it faces the front so I can see the air pressure went I am getting ready to cut.
Many reviewers had questions/concerns regarding how large a compressor they would require to maintain a good plasma arc. I have a thirty gallon compressor and a small pancake compressor. However I was concerned regarding having hoses across the floor of my shop. I purchased a welding cart and 4 gallon compressor from Harbor Freight and a short air hose and now I have a compact unit I can roll around the shop without cluttering up the floor. 4 gallons is more than adequate to cut sheet metal which is why I bought the machine.
Many people were concerned that in the 110 volt mode it would not work well. My intended purpose is to cut sheet metal for hobby projects. It works well for those jobs. If you want to cut anything thicker than 16 gauge 220 volts would be best.
I opted for the Pilot arc cutter. It was a good decision. The torch handle has a wire cradle that keeps the metal and torch a predetermined distance for cutting. No need to strike the tip against the metal to begin cutting,(that also means you are not damaging the tip each time you fire up the cutter which does reduce the life of the consumables).
Once you have your work set up, the work and machine grounded, press the button on the torch and you are cutting metal. You'll need a bit of practice so your cuts are straight. Don't be afraid to use a guide - cuts will then be perfect.
NOTE: many videos show the operator cutting without proper clothing, eyes protection or gloves!! That is crazy!! Once you hit the switch and start cutting metal the sparks will begin to fly. Protect yourself and the environment from burn/fire hazard.
While it is important to purchase a quality Plasma cutter. It is equally as important to purchase good quality consumables. Consumables are the business end of a plasma cutter. One of the deciding factors in choosing Lotos Pilot Arc Plasma Cutter is the cost of consumables. Other major brands of consumables charge 2-3 times as much as Lotos.
On a personal note: I have recommended my friends purchase a Lotos Plasma cutter. What a great toy, I mean tool!!
