“Our customers are requesting more powerful machines that are easy to use. With K 6500, we will be able to offer them a power cutter with one of the highest effective outputs on the market that is also easy to use”, says Johan Simonsson, Global Product Manager Power Cutters, Husqvarna Construction Products.
The main characteristics of K 6500 lie in its superior ergonomics and high power-to-weight-ratio. Another advantage is that it is possible to operate K 6500 on both 1- and 3-phase. With an output of up to 5.5 kW on 3-phase and 3 kW on 1-phase (230 V) it is the most powerful electric power cutter yet from Husqvarna and one of the most powerful overall. The possibility to select the available source of current increases the flexibility of K 6500.
“K 6500 is optimised to quickly cut through a large amount of concrete while at the same time being kind to users due to its superior ergonomics. K 6500 is also fitted with a load indicator (LED), which displays the current load on the machine which allows users to maximise cutting speed to obtain the most efficient cutting”, says Johan Simonsson.

Wide application area

K 6500 has an ergonomic and user-friendly design with the blade centred in relation to the handles. The power cutter and the power pack are both easy to carry and handle thanks to their low weight. This makes the power cutter suitable for applications where easy transportation is required, both to and around the worksite. Low vibrations also contribute to better  ergonomics. With a durable design and an encapsulated motor the maintenance and service requirements for K 6500 are minimal.
K 6500 is well suited for both wet and dry cutting, in- and outdoors. It handles concrete, metal, stone, and masonry, cutting smaller openings such as window and door openings. It also easily manages pipe cutting in installation work, asphalt cutting in roadworks and pre-cutting of pipe trenches
