The K970 Smart Guard offers ehanced saftey to it's already powerful design . By reducing weight with a magnesium blade guard, easier belt tensioning access and overall stronger crankcase. The Husqvarna K970 is a reliable option when cutting harder materials in more confined spaces.
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 into original packaging.

The Husqvarna K970 saw is a 2-stroke gas engine with 50:1 gas-oil mix. Able to hold a 14" blade for 5" depth of cut, with a 6.5 HP engine it is good power for general cutting.
One thing we like to mention to our customers is the option for a KV- 970 cart offered to fit this K970 saw. Some customers like this for green sawing however the vibration at blade while mounted on cart can leave joint spalling. See our Soff Cut 150 for early entry green concrete sawing. We also want our customers aware that putting a saw on a cart can reduce the "feel" an operator has while saw cutting. Not allowing them to know when they need to back off makes it easier to push this 5 HP saw too much.
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 their blade with a universal 2-sided bushing.
