  • Airforce 500I citter head

    Hi Everyone, new to the forum. I recently pick up a new Hobart Airforce 500I for my home shop at a extremely reasonable price. This is my first Hobart and appears to be a well made machine. My only complaint is I don't care for the cutter head. Not happy with the way it feels in the hand. Also, there doesn't appear to be a drag cutter shield made for the HP-50 torch. So I'm looking for some guidance from the more experienced Hobart crowd. Is there a aftermarket torch head, equipped with a drag cutter shield that will work with the Hobart 500I. Thanks In advance!

      You can purchase an XT30R torch and consumables. This torch is a direct replacement for the HP-50 that will fit the 500i. The part# is 268921 and is available from Miller. However, torch handle ergonomics are similar to the HP50.

        Thank You Keith, I appreciate that information. At least the XT30R torch can be fitted with a drag shield!
