Husqvarna HUSQ-967272301 K 970 Ring Power Cutter

HUSQ-589648101, HUSQ-587344701

The Husqvarna K 970 Ring is the world’s first gas-powered cutter able to make 10.6in deep cuts with a 14in blade. This may seem impossible to anyone who uses standard power cutters, since 14in blades can normally only achieve a cutting depth of 5in. However, we simply combined our unique and patented Ring Saw technology, where the blade is driven from the periphery instead of its center, with the strong, easy to handle gas-powered cutter, the Husqvarna K 970. With the K 970 Ring, you can have the best of both worlds: the tried and tested ring saw technology with its incredible cutting depth, and the ease of use and versatility of a gas-powered cutter.


Deep cutting
Thanks to the peripheral drive you can cut far deeper than with a traditional power cutter. The cutting depth of 10in is sufficient to cut through a normal wall from one side only.

Robust and reliable
Less sensitive to outdoor conditions and fuel variations, thanks to the cylinder design and muffler with integrated heat deflector.

Long service intervals
A strong Poly-V belt combined with our maintenance-free DuraStarter and efficient filter-system Active Air Filtration ensure long service intervals.

Light and powerful
A light, compact and powerful machine with superior power-to-weight ratio.

Maintenance-free air filter
The only time the filter needs to be checked and changed is if you experience lack of power.

Active Air Filtration
Our two-step filtration system with centrifugal cleaning and a single paper filter increases product life and extends service intervals.

High power with less fuel
Our built-in automatic filter compensation SmartCarb maintains high power and lowers fuel consumption.

Less emissions and fuel consumption
Our X-Torq engine produces less emissions, has lower fuel consumption and results in more power.

Our built-in automatic filter compensation maintains high power during the air filter life time.

EasyStart ensures easier starting by reducing the compression in the cylinder.

Anti-vibration system
Our anti-vibration system reduces vibrations in the cutter handles, so they are more comfortable to hold and can be used for longer periods. To provide the user a comfortable operating position reduced strain, the distance between the handles is large. The handles and the short engine body mean the user always stands close to the machine, for easier handling and control.

Our virtually maintenance free starter, thanks to the dust-sealed starter and the durable starter cord.
