Husqvarna Construction, with U.S. headquarters in Olathe, Kansas, has released a new generation of Elite-Cut diamond blades for cutting specialists who demand top performance in their diamond tooling.
According to the company, by combining two innovative segment designs—the Exo-Grit and Z-Edge—the new blades have increased cutting times and blade life.
The new Elite-Cut range uses three different segment types:
- Exo-Grit Z-Edge segment gives the segment a controlled active surface, enabling smoother and more efficient cutting. This also helps to extend the speed of the blade, while also improving slurry evacuation.
- Flat Exo-Grit segment helps increase the life of the blade by minimizing the segment's friction against kerf walls, while also improving slurry evacuation.
- Flat Exo-Grit Plus segment is designed to increase the blade's life by protecting the core from excessive wear when cutting in abrasive materials.
To reduce the risk of accidents related to pinching and kickbacks, Husqvarna says the blades have smarter features. These clear, visual indicators give the contractor instant feedback on the blade's wear, side clearance, direction of rotation, cutting depth and intended application.
The new line includes the Husqvarna Elite-Cut S 35, the Husqvarna Elite-Cut S 45 and the Husqvarna Elite-Cut S 65.
The Elite-Cut S 35 is equipped with the new Exo-Grit Z-Edge segment, designed to deliver smooth and fast cutting in hard materials, such as granite and hard concrete. Optimized for cutting in reinforced concrete, the Elite-Cut S 45 is equipped with both the new Exo-Grit Z-Edge segment and the new Flat Exo-Grit segment with dimpled edge.
As for the Elite-Cut S 65, the diamond blade has three segment designs to maximize the performance when cutting building blocks and other abrasive materials: the new Exo-Grit Z-Edge and Flat Exo-Grit segment, and the new Exo-Grit Plus segment to provide maximum wear resistance.
