From http://www.kevincaron.com – Artist Kevin Caron shows – and uses – the latest plasma cutter from Everlast, giving great plasma cutting tips along the way ….

Everlast just sent Kevin Caron a new plasma cutter to play with, the PowerPlasma 62i, and it has some cool new features. It comes standard with a nice IPT60 torch with a handy trigger guard to keep you from inadvertently lighting the torch.

The plasma cutter’s cap also is the right size for what Kevin Caron calls his “training wheels,” which let him roll along on the metal to get a nice smooth cut.

On the control panel, the machine has a selector for auto restart, tip saver and gouging modes. Gouging is one of the cool new features on this machine. To the left is a lock for the control panel so you can get your settings just the way you want them and then lock them into place.

This plasma cutter also has a CNC selector, which is another new feature. Kevin Caron shows the amperage display, cutting pressure display, air pressure display and post-flow adjustment.

When you fire up the machine you see the 60 amp display – this plasma cutter’s maximum amperage. Kevin Caron then starts adjusting the cutting pressure. The pressure regulator itself is on the back of the machine. By watching the display while adjusting the knob, when you get the pressure where you want it, you just push down on the knob to lock it into place.

Another cool function with this pressure display is that it doesn’t matter where you set your amperage, you can play with the air pressure. By watching the colored dots across the top, the machine tells you when the pressure is too high or too low, helping you dial in your air pressure. You don’t want to damage the machine.

And of course, the air pressure you’re going to run is directly related to not only the amperage, but also the size of the hole in the end of the nozzle you’re using. If the hole is smaller, you get lower pressure. If the hole is larger, the higher pressure gives you a better cut depending on what kind of amps you’re running and what kind of thickness you’re cutting. There’s a whole, long list of things to keep in your brain while you’re using a plasma cutter.

Kevin Caron is ready to make some sparks!

He’s put on his safety gear and has a piece of 1/2″ cold rolled steel plate in front of him. He puts on his safety glasses and, after setting the plasma cutter to 60 amps, easily cuts the 1/2″ steel.

Kevin Caron shows the cut, pointing out that he was probably moving a little too slowly because of the dross still hanging off the metal. But boy, the machine didn’t quibble about 1/2″ plate at all.

So that’s the Everlast PowerPlasma 62i. In this free how-to video Kevin Caron has been using the Everlast PowerPlasma 62i CNC package, and there’s another version without CNC. The 62i plasma cutter without the CNC package is regularly $1,200 but is on sale right now [02-2020] for $1,100 on the Everlastgenerators.com Website. The CNC version of this machine is regularly $1,500 but right now is on sale for $1,350 [02-2020] .

Of course, this plasma cutter has IGBT inverter technology, which means there’re fewer parts to wear out. That makes machine lighter and makes costs go down on.

It has a big cooling fan, too, to help keep it cool – That’s where that 60% max output duty cycle comes from!

So all in all, Kevin Caron says it’s a pretty darn good machine, especially for the price.

He thanks you for watching and asks you to hit that notification bell so you’re in the know when anything new pops up.

Could you at some point do a video showing off the gouging features of the plasma cutter? As always, the work you put into these videos is very much appreciated.

ibrahim alalaty says:

I enjoyed watching this video thanks kevin

Sylvan Energy Solutions says:

Those people sure like you my friend, so jelly!

Scott Roberts says:

What ever happened with the MTS 275 Machine. Would like to see some more reviews on that. I just bought the 62i. Can't wait to try it out. Thanks,

How does Everlast compare to Hypertherm in general? I am going to buy a plasma soon and want to make the right choice… Looking at the Powermax 65.

Blast357 says:

I have a 80A everlast plasma… the old style… the only thing I would like is a new torch that can drag. like hypertherm.

Aint1S says:

I really like that company… They have honest tech support and they are quick to replace a unit.
I'm no paid shill, I paid for my 255ext and I really want that plasma cutter! Sadly, I need another compressor to step away from the cutting torch for good. I do a lot of aluminum when I'm welding, so it's usually cutting wheel grenades I'm dealing with!

Gib Clark says:

👍👍👍👍nice

DFWKen says:

Wish I need one of those more than once or twice a year. I'd have one for sure. Love your reviews.

dmadere1 says:

😕 All I have is the old Everlast 60 amp

S Art says:

Nice description! You have a great way of explaining things.

Ben Miller says:
