2.1 Safety clothing


Dress right from head to toe

Although we're actively working on how to make our machines even safer, it's always important that you're properly dressed when you're working with a power cutter. This is what you should wear.

2.2 Transport and storage


Extend the lifespan of your equipment

The right transport and storage of your machines, fuel and blades minimises the risk of incidents. But most importantly, it keeps your equipment in good condition for longer.

2.3 Choosing your blade


Keep up the pace

Your power cutter is designed for a certain type of blade. Using the right blade increases the lifespan of your tool and gives you a higher cutting speed and, most importantly, the best possible results.
Choosing your blade

Wondering what blade to choose?

The recommendation chart on the packaging tells you which applications the blade is suitable for. Never choose a blade that's not recommended for your power cutter. And don't use a blade with a maximum speed rating that is lower than your machine. Wet and dry cutting require different types of blade. Make sure that you choose the right blade for your application.

2.4 Mounting the blade


How to mount the blade?

Here's the correct way to mount a blade to ensure that it will work properly when you start cutting. Watch the video to the right or read the instructions below.

  1. Before you start, make sure that the stop button is in the STOP position.
  2. Check the spindle and flange washers and change parts that are warped, notched or indented.
  3. Check the arrow on the blade to make sure that the diamond blade will rotate in the right direction when mounted on the machine.
  4. If there's no rotation arrow, check the direction of the tails attached to the diamonds found on each segment. The tails should follow the diamonds when the blade rotates.
  5. Use an arbour bushing with the right dimension to the centre hole in the blade. The power cutters K 760 and K 970 have a reversible arbour bushing that fits both a 20 mm and a 25.4 mm centre hole.
  6. Place the blade on the bushing between the inner and outer flange washers.
  7. Tighten the bolt holding the blade. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
  8. Finally, pull the blade guard forward and backward check that it’s working properly.

2.5 Petrol and oil


Get the most out of your power cutter

The right petrol and engine oil for your machine allows you to work efficiently for a longer time. It also means less wear on the engine.

The correct petrol / oil ratio is 1:50 (2 % Husqvarna oil or equivalent). Our dispensing bottles hold 10 cl of oil for 5 litres of petrol.

2.7 Refuelling


How to refill your power cutter:

Here are some basic tips on how you should refuel in order to get started quickly and stay safe. Watch the video to the right or read the instructions below.

  1. If you've just used the machine, let the engine cool down for a few minutes.
  2. Keep a safe distance of at least three metres from the working area.
  3. Lay the machine down on its side and open the fuel tank cap.
  4. Use a container with a spout to avoid spilling fuel.
  5. Tighten the fuel cap on the power cutter (and also on the container, if the spout is removed).
  6. Wipe off any fuel that has spilled on the machine or on the ground. If you've got fuel on your clothes – change them.
