Husqvarna’s unique power cutter range stands out and has always offered machines with different power sources; petrol, electric, air and hydraulic. What they all have in common is the focus on the user, the high power-to-weight ratio and several other features that facilitate the work for the user.
Introducing SmartTension and magnesium blade guard
We now introduce SmartTension, a system which makes it easy to tension the belt optimally.
“The secret with SmartTension is that you minimise the risk of under- and over-tensioning. When tensioning the belt, SmartTension finds the right tension using a patent pending spring loaded mechanism. In addition, it is easy to change the belt and reverse the blade guard. This contributes to the reliability of our K 970”, says Johan Simonsson.
Another very important, new feature on all K 970 cutters is the magnesium blade guard. The magnesium contributes to a light weight, which gives an improved power-to-weight ratio. It also contributes to an increased cutting depth – now up to 155 mm on the 16” version. In addition, the new stepless adjustment on the blade guard on all new K 970 power cutters makes it easier to change cutting position that in turn facilitates cutting.
With reliability in focus
Besides these updated features, the new K 970 still offers the original benefits of K 970. These include Active Air Filtration™, one of the most efficient air filtration systems on the market, and a X-Torq™ engine that produces less emissions and has lower fuel consumption.
”Typical users could be distributors, rental companies and contractors direct. What they have in common is a need for a reliable power cutter that does the job”, says Johan Simonsson.
Updates on Husqvarna K 970 Rescue
At the same time, Husqvarna also launches an updated version of K 970 Rescue. The power cutter will feature the new semi-automatic SmartTension and the magnesium guard. In addition, to keep the visibility of the blade guard in smoke, the blade guard comes with reflection tape. Also, the carrying strap on K 970 Rescue is updated. Now, the carabines are bigger and easier to handle with gloves on.
