Battery Disc Cutters
Husqvarna have been widely known as the best brand for disc cutters for many years, and now their battery powered disc cutters are leading the way in a new market.
Husqvarna’s mantra for disc cutters is to keep on improving. Elements such as product weight, performance, user comfort and value are continually being reviewed to ensure that their machines are as good as they can be.
Battery powered products used to be less powerful than their electric and fuelled equivalents, but continued breakthroughs in battery technology have led to a point where a portable power cutter can achieve superb results.
Husqvarna have now brought out the K535i battery powered disc cutter which is becoming very popular. Husqvarna have also introduced a 9” (230mm) blade called the S35S BAT, especially developed for cutting concrete on the K535i.
Battery vs Petrol
The advantages to battery powered products include lower noise, zero emissions, lower maintenance costs and lower weight.
Having an electric motor instead of a petrol engine reduces the weight of the machine which increases user comfort. There are also fewer moving parts, which means fewer elements to need repair. The battery itself is interchangeable with other Husqvarna battery powered products, for example chainsaws, trimmers and mowers. You can view our battery and charger guide to see operating and charging times for each battery and machine.
Charging a battery is much cheaper than buying petrol, so the difference in running costs will become apparent the more you use it.
Emissions on a battery powered machine are reduced to zero, so there is no problem with using a machine like the K535i indoors. Similarly, noise levels of a battery powered cutter are reduced to just a fraction of that of a fuelled machine so the impact on the environment in terms of noise pollution is significantly reduced.
