Husqvarna Construction Products are a leading supplier of products and diamond tools to hire companies all over the UK and  will once again be exhibiting at the Executive Hire Show in 2017. The focus for the 2017 will be to show the company’s range of innovative products that are perfect for the hire industry.

New products.

Husqvarna will also be introducing the new Husqvarna K 970 - with semi-automatic tensioning system called SmartTension and a magnesium blade guard.

Husqvarna understands that a concrete cutting specialist working full time with cutting will have different demands on the diamond tools compared to a paving to pipe laying contractor. To help customers find the best tool for the job, Husqvarna diamond tools come in three different performance categories, Gold, Silver and Bronze. These ranges will be shown on the Husqvarna stand at the show.

Husqvarna will also be introducing the new Husqvarna K 970 – with semi-automatic tensioning system called SmartTension and a magnesium blade guard. The SmartTension system makes it easy to tension the belt optimally, minimising the risk of under and over tensioning. The magnesium blade guard makes the cutter lighter than its predecessor, contributing to reduced vibrations and an improved power to weight ratio.

Safer and cleaner working environments.

Dust and its hazard to workers health is a topical issue within the construction industry. With this in mind Husqvarna will be presenting its innovative product features and accessories that provide exceptional dust control when cutting, drilling and grinding, helping to create cleaner and safer working conditions on site. These include wet cutting solutions with our water tanks and trolleys that work with Husqvarna power cutters and drilling equipment, as well as a dust collection unit that can be used with power cutters, drilling equipment and surface preparation. Included with this will be our  K 3000 power cutter that can be used for both dry and wet cutting, producing minimal dust when used with Husqvarna dust suppression accessories.

Firm favourites.

As well as new products Husqvarna will also be exhibiting some of the company’s most popular products for the hire industry. These include the K 760 OilGuard, designed with the hire industry in mind, this machine is equipped with an optical detection system which identifies whether the oil type is correct. If it detects an incorrect oil mix the machine will automatically shut down to idle, alerting the operator. As a result this means lower repair costs and reduced downtime. This machine also has all the features of the standard K 760 model, enhanced power to weight ratio, improved ergonomics and start-ability as well as low vibrations (less than 2.5 m/s²). Drilling equipment like the DM 220 will be on display, this drill motor provides the user with greater precision due to its level guiding system. Lightweight floor saws like the FS 400 LV will also be on the stand, this machine has excellent weight distribution and low vibrations.

The Executive Hire Show takes place on 8th & 9th February 2017 at its established Ricoh arena home.  Registration is now open – and it’s FREE!
