It takes about 3 to 4 horsepower of air power to run mine.
My 5hp gasoline driven easily provides enough air. My old 2pole 2.5hp compressor that runs at about 3 to 3.25 horsepower could just keep up with it.
But I run mine hard, I have toasted a new electrode and nozzle on just one cut before, I should have used the acetylene torch on that one but wanted to see if the plasma could cut it.
