“Our proven ring cutter concept now has the power and the ergonomics that PRIME gives. Also, with K 6500 Ring, we will be able to offer our customers a ring cutter with one of the highest effective outputs on the market”, says Johan Simonsson, Global Product Manager Power Cutters, Husqvarna Construction Products.
The main characteristics of K 6500 Ring lie in its high power, great ergonomics and low system weight. Another advantage is that it is possible to operate K 6500 Ring on both 1- and 3-phase. With an output of 5.5 kW on 3-phase and 3 kW on 1-phase (230 V), it is the most powerful electric ring cutter yet from Husqvarna.

Working together with PP 65

The ring cutter and the corresponding power pack PP 65 – which is air-cooled – are both easy to carry and handle thanks to their low weight. This makes the ring cutter suitable for applications where easy transportation is required, both to and around the worksite.
Keeping the power pack separated from the ring cutter also keeps it less exposed to dirt and
vibrations, ultimately leading to longer product life. K 6500 Ring is well suited for deep cutting, in- and outdoors. It handles concrete, stone and masonry, cutting smaller openings such as window and door openings. It also easily manages pipe cutting and pre-cutting of pipe trenches in installation work.
