Dry cutting solutions for handheld machinesPublished 27/12, 2018 at 09:35
Operating a power cutter means having to deal with dust. However, in many areas wet cutting is not a feasible option.
Therefore, Husqvarna Construction Products has developed two new power cutters specifically designed to offer the possibility to cut dry while dealing with the problems of dust contamination.
Although wet cutting is the preferred solution in most applications, sometimes dry cutting is the only option, especially when water is in short supply, or when regulations forbid slurry. With the Husqvarna K 770 VAC and Dry Cut, the power and proven qualities of the lightweight K 770 power cutter are provided, while adding the benefit of dust extraction, with the construction of the blade guard helping dust collection while cutting.
K 770 VAC is equipped with a flexible hose connector that is easily attached to an external dust extractor, providing superior dust transportation and containment. The K 770 Dry Cut is equipped with a cutting arm with an integrated fan. The fan’s strong airflow effectively removes any dust, and transports it to a designated bag where it’s kept contained thanks to an integrated nozzle. The bag is washable, reusable but can also easily be disposed.
Both power cutters provide a cutting depth of 123mm, with an integrated gearbox which reduces the speed of the blade in order to optimise the removal of dust, either to the external VAC unit or the external bag. Using Husqvarna’s dry cutting power cutters helps increase operator health and safety and, at the same time, provides a slurry free workspace, minimising the need for cleaning or preparing the work site.
