Husqvarna's New K970 Power Cutter

Ergonomics have been improved. The new, lighter blade guard made of magnesium (only available on the 14" model; the 16" model has a steel guard) gives the power cutter better balance and provides stepless guard adjustment. This makes operation and altering cutting positions easier.

The new blade guard includes a reversible blade bushing, which allows operators to easily switch between blades with different center holes. Progressive water valve allows exact adjustment of the water volume, greatly reducing water consumption and slurry. The low weight, together with optimized performance, enhances the machine’s power-to-weight ratio. K 970 is equipped with an X-Torq® engine, which lowers both emissions and fuel consumption when compared to conventional 2-stroke engines. It also has great startability with air purge and a decompression valve.

 The new K 970 is ideal for heavier cutting of concrete and stone in alterations, renovations and new construction work; for cutting smaller holes and adjusting window and door openings, as well as for pipe, asphalt and metal cutting; and for cutting curbstones and pavers in landscaping.
