Sturdy, reliable, light and powerful - the K 970 power cutter is ready to perform when you are. The ultimate choice when you need an all-round cutter performing in the toughest conditions, withstanding climate and fuel variations. Suitable for road works when used with the corresponding KV 970 trolley. The trolley also means you can fully concentrate on the cutting job.


  • EASY AND OPTIMAL BELT TENSIONING: The semi-automatic SmartTension minimises the risk of under- and over tensioning.
  • STURDY AND RELIABLE: Less sensitive to outer conditions and fuel variations, thanks to the cylinder design and muffler with integrated heat deflector.
  • EASY TO START: The unique design of the carburettor, cylinder and digital ignition system, together with air purge and decompression valve ensure an easy start.
  • LONG SERVICE INTERVALS: A strong Poly-V belt combined with our maintenance-free starter DuraStarter™ and efficient filter-system Active Air Filtration™ ensures long service intervals.
  • LESS SLURRY AND LOW WATER CONSUMPTION: Excellent dust control with our wet cutting kit. A progressive water valve for exact adjustment of the water volume to efficiently bind the dust and reduce slurry.
  • MAGNESIUM BLADE GUARD: Contributes to a light weight which gives an improved power-to-weight ratio. New stepless adjustment makes it easier to change cutting position.
  • DECREASED WEIGHT: The magnesium blade guard contributes to enhanced ergonomics and increased power-to-weight ratio.
  • LIGHT AND POWERFUL: A light, compact and powerful machine with superior power-to-weight ratio.
  • EASY TO CHANGE BLADE GUARD POSITION: The light magnesium blade guard facilitates cutting, thanks to its step-less adjustment.
  • FITS MULTIPLE BLADE BUSHINGS: Blades with 20 mm and 25.4 mm bore can be fitted thanks to the reversible blade bushing.
  • MAINTENANCE-FREE AIR FILTER: The only time the filter needs to be checked and changed is if you experience lack of power.
  • HIGH POWER WITH LESS FUEL: Our built-in automatic filter compensation SmartCarb™ maintains high power and lowers fuel consumption.
  • REDUCED WEAR: Reduced wear thanks to the drive belt with fully sealed transmission, which keeps out the cutting dust.
  • BLADE RETARDER: Reduces the stop time of the blade when the machine is switched off, which enables you to quickly move on to the next job.
  • MAINTENANCE-FREE STARTER: Patented, dust-sealed starter unit, seals the return spring and the pulley bearing. This makes the starter virtually maintenance free further boosting the reliability of our cutters.
  • DUALCHARGE™: New DualCharge™ engine technology provides more power, lower fuel consumption and greatly reduced emissions.
  • CUTS CLOSE TO WALLS OR GROUND: The cutting arm is reversible which lets you cut closer to walls or the ground. The drive belt has a fully sealed transmission. This keeps out cutting dust, reducing wear on the belt.
  • ACTIVE AIR FILTRATION™: Our two-step filtration system with centrifugal cleaning and a single paper filter increases product life and extends service intervals.
  • ANTI-VIBRATION SYSTEM: Our anti-vibration system reduces vibrations in the cutter handles, so they are more comfortable to hold and can be used for longer periods. The distance between the handles is large to enable the user a comfortable operating position and to reduce strain. The handles and the short engine body mean the user always stands close to the machine, for easier handling and control.
  • DURASTARTER™: Our virtually maintenance free starter, thanks to the dust-sealed starter and the durable starter cord.
  • EASYSTART: EasyStart ensures easier starting by reducing the compression in the cylinder.
  • POLY-V BELT: Provides better transmission of power, less frequent re-tensioning and extended service intervals.
  • REVERSIBLE CUTTING ARM: The drive belt with fully sealed transmission keeps out cutting dust for reduced wear and allows close cutting to walls and floor.
  • SMARTCARB™: Our built-in automatic filter compensation maintains high power during the air filter life time.
  • WET CUTTING KIT: Less slurry and low water consumption thanks to the progressive water valve, this adjusts the water volume to the exact amount needed.
