The USCutter MH34 is a decent solution for those looking for a properly sized, cost-effective vinyl cutter. This machine can cut any 34” standard thickness vinyl and it comes with a stand, the necessary software, and several rolls of sample material.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Exceptional value for the money
This is the only decent vinyl cutter capable under $300 capable of cutting 34” wide media. And it comes with a stand included. A single stand of a high-end GCC machine will probably cost more than $400. It is highly unlikely to find a quality cutter less expensive than this one.
Pro A lot of sample material is included
Additionally to the cutter itself, you will also get multiple rolls of 24” vinyl, two massive rolls of application transfer tape, and a roll of paper application tape. This will be enough for you to ‘play around’ with the cutter and find the appropriate cutting parameters.
Pro Easy to setup due to video tutorial
There is an official USCutter MH series setup video tutorial available on Youtube. The tutorial covers all the essential parts of the setup procedure, from unboxing to the actual cut. And it is only 14 minutes long.
Con Software is only compatible with Windows
You can not run the VinylMaster Cut software on a non-Windows machine. This imposes severe limitations on users who run other OSes.
Con Cutting precision is limited
A stepper motor controls the Z axis of this machine, and its cutting precision is much lower than the cutting precision of a digital servo motor (used in higher end machines). Only machines with a digital servo motor controlled Z Axis can cut ultra thin vinyl films.
