Pull in occurs when the lower part of the blade is suddenly
stopped or when the cut closes. (To avoid this see the section
" How to avoid kickback " and "Pinching/rotation" below).
Pinching occurs when the cut closes. The power cutter can be
drawn suddenly and powerfully downwards.
How to avoid pinching
Support the work piece in
such a way that the cut
remains open during the
cutting operation and when
the cut is finished.
Drying the blade
After using an abrasive blade
with water cooling, let the
cutter run at full throttle for
approx. half a minute so that
the blade dries.
If a damp blade is stored it
can become unbalance and
Check the speed of the
Use a tachometer regularly to
check the speed of the drive
shaft when the cutter is
running at working tempera-
ture and at full throttle without
a load. The maximum speed
is stated on the unit.
If the speed is higher than that stated then the
unit must be adjusted by an authorised
service workshop before it is used.
Care and storage
Husqvarna's power cutters are robust and durable. However, as
they are used for high speed operations all servicing should be
carried out on time and as specified, so that the power cutter
always works effectively and safely.
Read this Operator's Manual to determine which service
routines you can carry out and ensure that all other service
work is carried out by an authorised service workshop.
