The upgrade

About the upgrade About the upgrade
The upgrade is in line with Husqvarna’s aim to always offer its customers innovative products that help increase user productivity and efficiency.
“We have turned the saws inside out and made a range of improvements, which largely resulted in a completely new design. As always, our goal is to enable users to work faster and smoother,” says Lars Gustafsson, Product Manager, Construction Equipment, Husqvarna Construction Products.
The new design results in a saw with higher productivity and durability. The wall saw head has been updated with new electronics. In addition, the electrical power packs for the two saws have been equipped with brand new electronics, including new motherboards and new software.
Among the outer modifications in the wall saws, are the new blade guards in aluminium, which are robust, durable and easy to handle. Another modification is that the WS 440 HF, as well as the WS 482 HF, can now be conveniently controlled with a new wireless remote control. Users can easily see all information on a 3.5 inch colour display. The remote control, which is equipped with logical menus, is easy to operate.
