Husqvarna K1270 16" Gas Powered Rail Saw | K1270R

Cutting a rail track takes power, precision and speed. The K1270 Rail Saw is the market's most powerful cutter, customised for railways, tram tracks and metro systems. It cuts fast and straight, the attachment mounts quickly to the rail and the double attachment mountings means you can cut from any direction.

  • Superior power with low emissions

    • Patented X-torqTM engine that uses air to flush out the cylinder provides exceptional power but keeps fuel consumptions and emissions low.
  • Magnesium blade guard

    • Contributes to a light weight which gives an improved power-to-weight ratio. New stepless adjustment makes it easier to change cutting position.
  • Reduced wear

    • Reduced wear thanks to the drive belt with fully sealed transmission, which keeps out the cutting dust.
  • Cuts close to walls or ground

    • The cutting arm is reversible which lets you cut closer to walls or the ground. The drive belt has a fully sealed transmission. This keeps out cutting dust, reducing wear on the belt.
