Excellent, dependable, and widely useful equipment.

11/25/2016 4:30:10 PMBesides being a physician, I often find myself modifying wheelchairs and designing/fabricating adaptive recreational equipment for the disabled. Afterwards, I found myself starting a blacksmith shop. It is very hand to take on job sites where bringing pieces back to the shop would be very cumbersome. I can get a lot of cutting/repair jobs done on site. Especially handy doing handicapped ramps, railings, and also in the fabrication of wrought iron gates.

2/17/2016 12:30:29 PMBecause our company provides service in very remote places where the access for air compressors is very limited, the portability of the Powermax30 AIR with the internal compressor, makes it ideal for field services. It also eliminates the need for oxyfuel cutting, consequently reducing the cost and increasing the productivity of the cutting process.
