Power Cutter, Gas Power Cutter - K 970

Blade Diameter - 16 in., Max Cutting Depth - 6 in.

The new Husqvarna K 970 is our latest and most powerful handheld power cutter, featuring the revolutionary X-Torq® engine technology. It is a unique machine, in a class of its own when it comes to emission levels, efficiency and maneuverability.


  • Active Air Filtration™ - The new generation of Active Air Filtration™ is one of the most efficient air filtration systems on the market.
  • DualCharge™ - New DualCharge™ engine technology provides more power, lower fuel consumption and greatly reduced emissions.
  • DuraStarter™ - Patented, dust-sealed starter unit, seals the return spring and the pulley bearing. This makes the starter virtually maintenance free further boosting the reliability of our cutters.
  • EasyStart - Ensures 50% easier starting by reducing the compression in the cylinder during starting.
  • Wet cutting kit - All our cutters except the K 3000 Electric feature our robust new wet cutting kit, with low water usage.
  • The cutting arm is reversible which lets you cut closer to walls or the ground. The drive belt has a fully sealed transmission. This keeps out cutting dust, reducing wear on the belt.
  • Our anti-vibration system reduces vibrations in the cutter handles, so they are more comfortable to hold and can be used for longer periods. The distance between the handles is large to enable the user a comfortable operating position and to reduce strain. The handles and the short engine body mean the user always stands close to the machine, for easier handling and control.
  • DEX, the new Dust Extinguisher System that gives cleaner cutting with less water usage and slurry.
