The K970 III is a robust, reliable, light and powerful power cutter ready to perform. The ultimate choice when you need an all-around cutter performing in the toughest conditions, withstanding climate and fuel variations.
Ace Cutting has this saw prepped before shipping. We try our best to adjust the carburetor to meet the location / elevation being shipped. This assures us to see defects or problems before shipping. Our technicians run the saw, empty the fuel and fit back to original packaging.
Can be used for a variety of cutting applications including curbstone and pavers in landscaping, metal/pipes for installation work, concrete in buildings as well as roadwork applications.

The K970-16" saw is a very powerful 2-stroke gas saw with 50:1 gas-to-oil mix. When there is harder material or speed of cut is important, this saw will make the difference. Only 1.5 more HP compared to the Husqvarna K770, however in the 2-stroke world that can make a huge difference.
We like to recommend this saw for heavy users who are saw cutting every day. This Husqvarna K970-14" is comparable to the Makita 4-stroke cut off saw. The Makita EK765 is a 4-stroke (straight gas) saw, the weight class and HP ratings are very similar to Husqvarna K970.
Another new feature is the universal bushing on bladeshaft. In the past contractors always needed to make sure they have the correct size center hole arbor for blade to fit saw. With the new Husqvarna saws, there is a bushing that can be easily removed. One side fits a 1" arbor and the other side fits 20mm. This allows operator to always have ability to fit blade with a universal 2-sided bushing.
