General Info

Gas powered saw with a diamond chain. The K 970 Chain is based on the popular K970 Active, and it features all the technical and ergonomic benefits of that machine. With a concrete chainsaw you can cut better in tight spots, you get better control while avoiding gyro forces, you can cut sharp corners without over cutting and you can make up to 15" (390 mm) cuts from one side. This makes the concrete chainsaw a perfect complement to a Ring Saw with a blade, where the Ring Saw does the pre-cutting.

Reliable technology with unique new possibilities

The Husqvarna K970 Chain is a handy, versatile and easy-to-use cutter, that is just as convenient to move around as an ordinary gas powered saw. But with completely new possibilities and applications. For instance, it’s easy to cut through 15" (390 mm) thick walls, ceilings and floors from one side, you can also make square openings as small as 4-1/2" x 4-1/2". By using a concrete chainsaw, the work gets done more efficiently, with cleaner cuts and less finishing up.

Active Air Filtration™ For unrivaled cleaning of the intake air

The Active Air Filtration system consists of three separate filter systems. The first stage utilizes the centrifugal forces of the flywheel, separating 80 to 90 percent of the dust particles from the intake air. The remaining dust gets caught in the next stage, an oil-impregnated adhesive filter. The third stage is a folded paper filter, which forms an additional level of protection, to prevent the cutting dust from entering the engine. The Active Air Filtration system minimizes the risk of abrasive cutting dust being carried into the engine by the intake air. The result is that the cleaning interval for the fixed filters are extended by 3 to 5 times, which decreases costs as well as downtime.

SmartCarb™ Keeps power levels high

Husqvarna’s unique carburettor with SmartCarb™, the integrated filter compensation, automatically adjusts the fuel/air ratio as the air filters become increasingly dirty. Together with Active Air Filtration, SmartCarb™ ensures high power levels, better filter economy, lower fuel consumption and reduced emissions.

Other Features

Patented, dust sealed starter unit, where the return spring and the pulley bearing are sealed. DuraStarter™ also includes a starter cord with greatly increased durability. This makes the starter virtually maintenance free, giving a further boost to the reliability of our cutters.

EasyStart ensures 50% easier starting by reducing the compression in the cylinder during starting.

Self-lubricating clutch bearings for extended work life.

Easy to tension the chain without tools.

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 enable the user a comfortable operating position and to reduce 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.

Make up to 15" deep cuts from one side.

Active Air Filtration, centrifugal air cleaning in three stages, extends product life and service intervals.

Engine with X-Torq produces more power, higher torque and greatly reduced emissions.

SmartCarb, built-in automatic filter compensation, maintains high power and lowers fuel consumption.

DuraStarter, a dust-sealed starter, and the durable starter cord reduce the risk of downtime and increase reliability and service life.

badass concrete cutter

i had to have this bad boy after seeing it in action at the demo show. no doubt the k970 is a badass concrete chain saw. only thing is the gas tank is a little smaller than i hoped for so run time is a little short but everything considered i would still recommend this concrete chain saw to any pro with work lined up and true appreciation for well engineered and reliable gear. big ups to the guys at contractors direct always making it happen especially when you're in a pinch
