Husqvarna K 1270 Review

Some jobs require exceptional power, the K 1270 is a real powerhouse with an impressive 5.8 kW output, turning your heaviest cutting jobs into a fast and effective operation. Suitable for road works when used with the corresponding KV 9/12 trolley. The trolley also means you can fully concentrate on the cutting job.


Reversible cutting arm

The drive belt with a fully sealed transmission keeps out cutting dust for reduced wear and allows close cutting to walls and floor.

Blade retarder

Reduces the stop time of the blade when the machine is switched off, which enables you to quickly move on to the next job.


Reduced wear

Reduced wear thanks to the drive belt with a fully sealed transmission, which keeps out the cutting dust.

Magnesium blade guard

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

Maintenance-free air filter

The only time the filter needs to be checked and changed is if you experience a lack of power.

Active Air Filtration

Husqvarna’s two-step filtration system with centrifugal cleaning and a single paper filter increases product life and extends service intervals.


Husqvarna’s built-in automatic filter compensation maintains high power during the air filter lifetime.


Superior power with low emissions

A patented X-Torq engine that uses air to flush out the cylinder provides exceptional power but keeps the fuel consumption and emissions low.

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.

Anti-vibration system

Husky’s anti-vibration system reduces vibrations in the cutter handles, so they’re more comfortable to hold and can be used for longer periods. The distance between the handles is large to enable the user a comfortable operating position and to reduce strain. The handles and the short engine body mean the user always stands close to the machine, for easier handling and control.

Poly-V belt

Provides better transmission of power, less frequent re-tensioning and extended service intervals.

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.

Wet cutting kit

Less slurry and low water consumption thanks to the progressive water valve, this adjusts the water volume to the exact amount needed.
