Miles, I googled it and looked at a few web catalogs and specs, it looks like a good one at 25cfm. Somewhere I read it was important to size the dryer close to what your Ac cfm is. I am using a 17.5cfm Ac and a 20cfm dryer (harbor freight used from craigslist) and it works good. We cut mostly oxy fuel so it is not used all day, only when we are cutting w/plasma. At 100amps it works pretty consitent, lots of flow but with 60amp or even fine cut it has much less flow through it.

Have you used your 85 yet? curious how you like it. I am hoping that a torch retro for our 1650 is in hypertherms future, one like the 85 has.
