New products from HusqvarnaPublished 28/6 at 15:54
Swedish manufacturer Husqvarna has announced the release of several new products, including new power cutters, floor grinders, floor saws and its new fleet services, to name but a few.
Here’s the latest from Husqvarna.
First out is the new Husqvarna K 770 VAC and K 770 ‘Dry Cut’ power cutters providing dry cutting solutions for handheld machines for applications where wet cutting isn’t an option, for example when water is in short supply or when regional regulations forbid slurry. The construction of the blade guard helps collect the resulting dust from cutting which can then be transported away and contained. The K 770 VAC is equipped with a flexible hose connector that is attached to an external dust extractor, such as the Husqvarna S 26, providing dust transportation and containment.
The portable K 770 Dry Cut is equipped with a cutting arm with an integrated fan. The fan’s strong airflow (2.833p/min) effectively removes the dust and transports it to a designated bag where it’s kept contained thanks to its integrated nozzle. The bag is washable and reusable but can also be disposed of. Both power cutters provide a cutting depth of 122mm, whilst an integrated gearbox reduces the speed of the blade in order to optimise the removal of dust, transporting it via the blade guard either to the external VAC unit or the external bag.
Husqvarna Fleet Services
Husqvarna ‘Fleet Services’ is a digital solution for asset management. It enables construction contractors, fleet managers and rental companies to stay on top of their machines, providing information on how well they are performing, where they are located and each machine’s service needs. The data is collected and transmitted through a sensor puck, which is easily attached to the equipment, with some of Husqvarna’s equipment already having a location specifically made for this. The sensor will fit on non-Husqvarna equipment as well. Once installed, a plethora of information is available via a smartphone app and laptop portal.
Husqvarna ‘Hipertrowel’ system
This is a fast and easy six step process to create polished concrete floors on large areas by the use of a ride on power trowel. Up to 1,000 m² of ready floor per day can be produced with this solution thanks to the passive gyro driver and the magnetic mount of the new ‘Hiperflex’ TRW diamond tools.
New drill stand Husqvarna DS 500
The new medium size drill stand DS 500 has been developed for the Husqvarna DM 340 and similar high powered single phase drill motors. It delivers good drilling performance with increased rigidity and reduced weight. It’s recommended for core diameters up to 400mm and will be available in late Q2.
New floor grinder Husqvarna PG 510
The Husqvarna PG 510 is a planetary floor grinder with three grinding discs and a total grinding width of 515mm. It’s suitable for removing coatings, grinding and polishing concrete and has been designed for both professionals and semi-professionals, making it an ideal rental machine. The grinding head is sealed to protect the bearings and belts from moisture and dirt, has an optional one or three phase motor, and is set to be available in Q3.
New electric floor saw Husqvarna FS 500 E
This is a small sized floor saw delivering up to 187mm cutting depth, powered by a 7.5kW electric motor. It is said to be easy to operate, and includes such features as a built in water tank with optimised water flow to the blade, automatic soft start and phase error detection. It comes with Husqvarna Fleet Services connectivity and is set to be available in Q4.
Husqvarna battery blades
Husqvarna battery blades have been developed to provide optimised performance and facilitate the smooth operating of the K 535i battery power cutter. The blades all feature smart indicators and have been specifically designed to improve the performance out of a battery powered power cutter.
Husqvarna LP 9505 trench compactor
The new trench compactor has been developed to deliver productivity in demanding trench compaction jobs. Whether dealing with steep, tight or loose soils, the Husqvarna LP 9505 possesses a number of solutions, including articulated steering, a radio remote control and drum pads, in order to undertake the work required.
Husqvarna ‘Mamba’ wire
The Mamba wire solution comprises of a hybrid bead with new vacuum technology allowing operators to choose high speed cutting while still benefitting from the efficient life span of the diamond wire, thus improving productivity and increasing performance.
One piece blade guard
This new development is a blade guard ideal for those occasions where a dividable guard is not required, or desirable, thereby enabling the use of a two or three piece Husqvarna blade guard for more complicated jobs. It’s available in two sizes to fit Husqvarna diamond blades diameter of 840mm and 1,085mm.
Husqvarna T 4000 dust extractor
The T 4000 is a three phase industrial dust extractor designed to match Husqvarna PG 530, PG 450 and PG 400 grinding machines as well as small to medium scarifiers, shot blasters and shavers. It’s ideal for heavy duty work and the exacting demands of dust extraction, and is equipped with a quiet turbine motor delivering good airflow.
Husqvarna Z-Edge blades and drill bits
Husqvarna 1515 Z-Edge blades and drill bits have improved ‘Z’ shaped segments which optimise the cut as well as minimise friction and vibrations. The blade and bit sturdiness and capability for withstanding tough conditions is based on the properties of the metal material used in the bond. For the Z-Edge, the quality of the bond used has been developed to achieve high strength and solidity.
