Be advised that this does not corrrectly fit the AirForce 12ci
April 13, 2018
This cover is made pretty well, but it does not correctly fit the Hobart AirForce 12ci. Specifically, the cover *does* slide onto the 12ci, but the cutouts do not match the cable positions on the 12ci. I had to make some modifications on the cover to fit better.
The cover's fabric is of a reasonable gauge and the cover looks good.
Assuming you use this cover on the cutter for which it's intended, it still has a couple if flaws. First, the large pocket on the side tends to sag open because it has no Velcro closure. This leaves it open to gathering dust and debris from the shop. Second, the cover has to Velcro straps on the ends to ensure a snug fit. My Miller 212 cover has Velcro straps which work well. I am surprised the Hobart doesn't have this.
- Fits the body of the plasma cutter.
- Looks good.
- Fabric is of a reasonable gauge.
- Baggy pocket
- No velcro straps
- If this is the best cover Hobart makes, then I would buy it again.
