“K 6500 Chain is a great addition to our PRIME™ offering. The PRIME™ family is much appreciated for its power and ergonomics, and K 6500 Chain is no exception. I am very proud to be able to present it to the users”, says Johan Simonsson, Global Product Manager Power Cutters, Husqvarna Construction Products.

Both 1 and 3 phase

The power cutter works on both 1 and 3 phase and only weighs about 9 kg. Besides from handling deep and narrow cuts and square corners, it prevents overcutting and can also cut pipes from one side. The user can choose between three different bar lengths. The maximum cutting depth is 450 mm. 

Being a part of the PRIME™ product range, K 6500 Chain works together with either one of the separate power packs in the PRIME™ range: Husqvarna PP 65 or PP 220. This gives the user flexibility to use the available source of current – 1 or 3 phase.

A part from being efficient and light weight, K 6500 Chain also embodies the other characteristics from the products of the PRIME™ range: a powerful electric motor, no stiff hydraulic hoses, a small easy-to-handle power pack, low vibrations and excellent ergonomics.
