The K1260 follows in the footsteps of the K760 and K970 power cutters. Several of the new features include: 

•  The K1260’s engine produces more output, 7.8 hp, and the built-in automatic filter compensation unit,
   SmartCarb™, helps maintain high power and lowers fuel consumption.
•  The Active Air Filtration™ system is one of the market’s most efficient air filtration systems. It delivers 
   operational times (dry cutting) of about one year without filter service required.
•  The Poly V-belt provides better power transmission, less retensioning and increased product life.
•  The DEX, dust-handling system, provides cleaner cutting with less water usage. 

Able to handle a range of applications, the K1260 is the perfect tool for municipalities and local governments’ water and street maintenance crews. It can cut pipes in installation work, concrete and masonry in alteration, renovation and new construction work as well as asphalt in roadwork and pre-cutting for pipe trenches. When used with the KV 1260 cutting cart, it can be utilized for flat work. The versatile K1260 can do it all.
