Features for the
Husqvarna K 970 III
Easy and optimal belt tensioning
The semi-automatic Smart Tension minimizes the risk of under- and over tensioning.
Sturdy and reliable
Less sensitive to outdoor conditions and fuel variations, thanks to the cylinder design and muffler with integrated heat deflector.
Easy to start
The unique design of the carburetor, cylinder, and digital ignition system, together with air purge and decompression valve, ensure an easy start.
Long service intervals
A strong Poly-V belt combined with our maintenance-free DuraStarter™ and efficient filter-system Active Air Filtration™ ensure long service intervals.
Our built-in automatic filter compensation maintains high power during the air filter lifetime.
Our virtually maintenance free starter, thanks to the dust-sealed starter and the durable starter cord.
Fits multiple blade bushings
Blades with 20mm and 25.4mm bore can be fitted thanks to the reversible blade bushing.
Our anti-vibration system reduces vibrations in the cutter handles, so they are more comfortable to hold and can be used for longer periods. To provide the user a comfortable operating position reduced strain, the distance between the handles is large. The handles and the short engine body mean the user always stands close to the machine, for easier handling and control.
Active Air Filtration™
Our two-step filtration system with centrifugal cleaning and a single paper filter increases product life and extends service intervals.
