With the launch of K1 PACE, Husqvarna offers customers a high-power battery cutter that can handle the heavy-duty jobs. This is the first product to be launched on the company's new battery system, PACE.
Husqvarna says the K1 PACE can deliver power and performance equivalent to petrol-powered cutters with the benefits battery-powered equipment brings to both operators and the environment.
“We see an increasing number of construction companies striving for carbon-neutral workplaces and as a leading supplier we feel a responsibility to contribute, together with our partners and customers, towards greater sustainability," says Mattias Holmdahl, global product manager, power cutters at Husqvarna Construction.
The PACE battery system can be applied to more machine lines as the battery-powered family expands. In addition to power cutters, diamond blades in 12 in. and 14 in./300 and 350 mm have been optimized for battery operation. The machine is also equipped with X-Halt brake function capable of stopping the rotation of a blade in a fraction of a second for enhanced safety.
K1 PACE is on display at World of Concrete and for those who have the opportunity to try the machine.
“We do not compromise on quality and safety. With K1 PACE, customers get a high-performance battery power cutter that provides zero direct emissions. They can expect lower vibrations, smoother cutting and that the machine's low weight and optimal center of gravity help reduce the strain on their body.”
K1 PACE will be demonstrated by Husqvarna Construction and the sales start will take place in stages during the second half of the year, starting in the Nordic countries. More technical data will be released at the start of sales.
