It’s essential that the engine is high quality. The cutting arm should be sealed against dust and water. Efficient air purification decreases the risk of internal wear and in combination with air filter compensation there is less risk of the work having to be interrupted due to a blocked filter.
Power Cutter Maintenance
Things to keep in mind when buying a power cutter:
A good cutter should clean the intake air effectively.
The machine should have a good ergonomic design. Low vibration levels in the handles are essential.
The cutting arm should be able to be turned, for cutting up close to walls.
Check which accessories are available. For instance a cutting trolley which is easy to mount the cutter onto, for long cuts in asphalt and concrete.
Easy access to spare parts. Husqvarna’s cutters have many parts in common with chain saws in the corresponding size.
