There are many different users across the internet that will absolutely swear that getting a plasma cutter with a pilot arc is a necessity – that is why we have listed all the models we have for sale on this page.
You can find a variety of models with this feature like the Lotos models (LTP5000D, for instance), while it is a feature that will be significantly more normal for higher end machines. The Lotos model we mentioned, however, is a good cheap option to consider if you’re a DIY wanting to work on different projects.
You should also know that you probably will not want to go back when you start using a plasma cutter with a pilot arc. That is how much we believe you will love the feature!
The Cut-50 is another option that has a pilot arc on the much cheaper end, but you should also know that you will not want to get that option unless your needs are extremely limited.
If you check the various communities online, you will probably come across more than a handful of people that have mentioned that they ended up being too cheap when they bought a plasma cutter, and now they’re just waiting for someone to buy it off of them.
