User-Friendly Features of the Saw
The unique and impressive features that come along with Husqvarna Soff-Cut X-150 have contributed a lot towards its popularity. The low noise patented blade enclosure allows crews to use the saw in residential areas without causing much disruption to the neighbors. In concert with reducing the noise, the blade reduces neighbor objections about noise. In turn, that does wonders to generate community endorsement of future work you might have planned.
Moreover, the innovative low-dust blade block system featured on this saw allows dry cutting with little or no mess to clean up afterwards. The blade minimizes debris compared to other blades, controlling concrete pieces and parts flinging off while being cut. Especially in small areas, debris spinning off in all directions impacts safety. Eliminating flying shards of concrete also means protecting the area surrounding the work site from dings and chips.
