Ramsond CUT 50DY 50 Amp Digital Inverter Portable Air Plasma Cutter Dual Voltage
One of the best selling portable plasma cutters. BRAND NEW IN BOX. 4TH Generation Ramsond CUT 50DY, a 50 Amp, Dual Voltage (110V and 220V), Dual Frequency (50 and 60 Hz), Inverter Technology, High Frequency, Plasma Cutter. The CUT 50DY is the 4th generation of Ramsond line of plasma cutters; having evolved from the previous CUT50, CUT50D AND CUT50DX models. It is now equipped with DIGITAL AMP DISPLAY and INTEGRATED PRESSURE GAUGE located in the front panel. It is further upgraded witha fully insulated FOLDABLE HANDLE. It continues to utilize an UPGRADED GERMAN MADE COOLING SYSTEM. It has been internally redesigned to incorporate the latest high frequency inverter technology using V-MOSFETs made by TOSHIBA, along with PWM (Pulse Width Modulation), the combination of which help deliver a far more constant, concentrated and precise current to the cutting surface. This leads to a cleaner and more uniform cut. Furthermore, as a result of these improvements, CUT 50DY has been substantially reduced in size and weight. With the Ramsond CUT 50DY, regardless of your training, you can achieve smooth, clean and uniform cuts on a wide range of surfaces and material (e.g. stainless steel, carbon steel, alloy steel, copper, brass, aluminum plate and other conductive material) with minimal heat input and without distortion of metal. This model has been designed so it is easy to use by the do-it-yourself user, while fully accommodating the demands of professional operators.

Very ImpressedApr 13, 2010
Ordered from Amazon on Monday and received on Friday. Four days from Michigan to Missouri is fast shipping.
This machine was packaged well enough to be air dropped if necessary. The outside box was lined with Styrofoam. The inside box was lined with about 1" thick foam that was made to fit the cutter.
It came with everything except an electrical plug which makes sense because it will work on 110 or 220 so there is no way for them to know what type plug to send. I wired mine for 220.
The first thing I cut was some 1/8 " steel. It zipped right through that. I then tried some ¼" with no problem. The next thing I cut was ½" steel. I got through it but I had to take it easy. I didn't have anything thicker but with my lack of skill I'm not sure I would tackle anything thicker than the ½".
I also tried some very thin steel and it did a great job with a low amp setting. 1/8" and ¼" aluminum cut with no problem.
I don't have a steady hand so most of my cuts looked pretty rough but the machine cuts so fast with no resistance it was hard to get a straight cut. Anyone who has used a cutting torch will know what I mean.
I still don't know how they can produce this much cutting power in a 25 pound machine but they did. I am impressed with the machines quality and performance

A Must Buy For The Automotive HobbiestNov 09, 2010
By Terry L. Varner
I was a little apprehensive to purchase this plasma cutter because of the price, but I'm so glad I did. Ordered on Monday and got it Thursday. Right out of the box (after attaching the air filter and adding a 115v plug to the cord) I was cutting 18 ga. floor panels for my 54 Ford Victoria. I was impressed! I learned to use a piece of angle iron to cut straight edges. I later cut 1/4 inch angle iron like a hot knife trough butter. For those whom rebuild cars, I highly recomend this cutter. Can't find better for the money.

Plasma reviewSep 17, 2010
Recieved in a timely manner. Works great with 110. Great for small jobs. Great product for the price. Cutting panels for patchwork for old cars. Play with the air pressure, and voltage to your satisfaction.

Beats the crap out of the harbor freight cutterFeb 10, 2012
By Ricardo Hampo
I don't normally bother to review anything, but have to say this machine is *really* impressive. I have had mine about 2 months at time of writing. It is only half the size of the Harbor Freight cutter, but is 10 amps stronger and doesn't overheat nearly as easily. Mine was only Four Hundred Dollars too (they have hiked the price since then!!), so the Harbor Freight cutter at Seven Hundred Bucks went right back to the store. PoS in comparison.. weaker, overheated easily and almost twice the price?!
I have cut a bunch of half inch steel plate with the Ramsond thus far.. it does really well with that, especially with a new tip.
It goes thru the steel like a hot knife in butter.. Brilliant stuff!
It will get thru 3/4 inch.. just about anyway. It kinda has to chew through it so the cut isn't very clean.
Make sure you have a good strong compressor with lots of air flow! The air keeps the tip cool and pushes the molten steel away from it. No air or weak air will fry the tip in a heart beat.
It will eat the tips fairly quickly, especially with bad air supply and bad technique. I don't know why Amazon doesn't sell replacements.
The cutter will blast a spray of molten steel away from the cut. Be cognisant of where this is going to end up... it will bounce back at you or could damage clothing or anything around it, so pick your location and angle of attack with care. I find a nice 45 degree angle will push the steel away well and keep the tip cooler.
Thats about it. Definitely worth a try. :-)

5 stars for what it is and costs.Dec 01, 2010
By J. Swanson
Is this thing as good as the expensive Millers, Hypertherms etc the short answer is no it is not. But for what it costs and how it performs it is worth every penny for the home hobbiest. It produces a clean cut through the 1/4" steel I routinely cut. No experience cutting much thicker then 1/4" but at the settings I am at for 1/4" it just may do 1/2" just fine. I should note that I have it wired 240 volt.
The regulator is cheap but works, I may replace it with a better one in the future though.
The torch head is also cheap and will not hold up to abuse. I have not done long cuts but the cutting I have done the handle has not even become warm so I have no worries of it's ability.
So in short it is a inexpensive hobby type plasma cutter that works as it claims. It is not a plasma cutter to use in a high demand work shop.
