Fuels / Refuelling
-
Go to a safe, level place before refuelling. Never refuel while
on scaffolding, on heaps of material, or in similar places!
-
Switch off the engine before refuelling the Power Cut.
-
Do not smoke or work near open Þres (6).
-
Let the engine cool down before refuelling.
-
Fuels can contain substances similar to solvents. Eyes and skin
should not come in contact with mineral oil products. Always wear
protective gloves when refuelling (not the regular work gloves!).
Frequently clean and change protective clothes. Do not breathe
in fuel vapors. Inhalation of fuel vapours can be hazardous to
your health.
-
Do not spill fuel. If a spill occurs, clean off the Power Cut immediately. Fuel should not come in contact with clothes. If your
clothes have come in contact with fuel, change them at once.
-
Ensure that no fuel oozes into the soil (environmental protection).
Use an appropriate base.
-
Refuelling is not allowed in closed rooms. Fuel vapors will accumulate near the ßoor (explosion hazard).
-
Ensure to Þrmly tighten the screw cap of the fuel tank.
-
Before starting the engine, move to a location at least 3 meters
(approx. 3 1/4 yards) from where you fuelled the Power Cut
(7), but not within the extended swing range of the cutting disc
(direction of sparks).
-
Fuel cannot be stored for an unlimited period of time. Buy only
as much as will be consumed in the near future.
-
When making up the gasoline/oil mixture, always put the oil in
the mixing container Þrst, and then the gasoline.
-

in case of an emergency (within shouting distance).
-
Observe all anti-noise regulations when working in residential
areas.
-
Never use the Power Cut near inßammable materials or
explosive gases! The Power Cut can create sparks leading
to Þre or explosion!
-
Make sure that all persons within 30 meters (33 yards), such
as other workers, are wearing protective gear (see "Protective
Equipment") (8). Children and other unauthorized persons must
remain more than 30 meters away from the working area. Keep
an eye out for animals as well (9).
-
Before starting work the Power Cut must be checked for
perfect function and operating safety according to the prescriptions. In particular, make sure that the cutting wheel is in
good condition(replace immediately if torn, damaged or bent),
the cutting wheel is properly mounted, the protective hood is
locked in place, the hand guard is properly mounted, the throttle
moves easily and the half-throttle lock button functions properly,
the grips are clean and dry, and the combination switch functions
properly (Start/Stop (I/O) switch, choke).

Cutoff discs
-
The protection hood must always be on! Change discs only
with the engine off!
- There are two basic types of cutoff discs:
- For metal (hot cutting)
- For masonry (cold cutting)
NOTE:
When using diamond cutoff discs, always make sure to observe
the "direction of rotation" markings. Diamond discs should only be
used for cutting masonry/brick/ concrete etc.
- Cutoff discs are intended only for radial loading, i.e. for cutting.
Do not grind with the sides of the cutting disc! This will break
the disc (10)!
Caution!
Never change direction (turning radius less than 5 meters /
5 1/2 yards), exert lateral (sideways) pressure, or tip the Power
Cut during cutting (11)!
- Use a cutting disc only for cutting the materials it is intended
for. The proper type of disc must be used, for either metals or
masonry.
- The arbor hole of the cutting disc must be an exact Þt with the
arbor or shaft. If the arbor hole is larger, it must be Þtted with an
adapter ring (available as an accessory).
- The cutting disc must be rated for freehand cutting at up to 4370
rpm or 80 m/sec for 350 mm discs, or up to 5100 rpm or 80 m/s
for 300 mm discs. Use only cutting discs that comply with EN
12413, EN 13236.
- The disc must be free of defects (12). Do not use defective cutting discs.
Always tighten the cutting disc mounting bolt to a torque of 30
Nm. Otherwise, the cutting disc can twist.
- Before starting the cutting disc, make sure you have a steady
footing.
- Put the Power Cut into operation only as described in this instruction manual (13). Always place your left foot in the rear handle
and grasp the other handle Þrmly (with thumb and Þngers). Other
starting methods are not allowed.
- When starting the Power Cut it must be well supported and
securely held. The cutting disc must not be touching anything.
- If the cutting disc is new, test it by running it at least 60 seconds
at top speed. When doing this, make sure that no persons or
body parts are in the extended swing range of the disc, in case
it is defective and ßies apart.
- When working with the Power Cut always hold it with both
hands. Take the back handle with the right hand and the tubular handle with the left hand. Hold the handles tightly with your
thumbs facing your Þngers.
- CAUTION: When you release the throttle lever the disc will
keep spinning for a short period of time (free-wheeling effect).
- Continuously ensure that you have a safe footing.
- Hold the Power Cut such that you will not breathe in the exhaust
gas. Do not work in closed rooms or in deep holes or ditches
(danger of poisoning by fumes).
- Switch off the Power Cut immediately if you observe any
changes in its operating behavior.
- Switch off engine before refuelling, changing the cutoff disc, work
breaks, transporting or moving the Power Cut, taking it out of
operation, or dealing with malfunctions. Before any maintenance
work, move the combination switch to the lock symbol (14).
- Turn off the engine immediately and check the disc if you hear
or feel any change in cutting behaviour.
- Turn off the Power Cut when taking a break or stopping work
(14). Place the unit in such a way that the disc is not touching
anything and cannot endanger anyone.
- Do not put the overheated Power Cut in dry grass or on any
inßammable objects. The mufßer is very hot (danger of Þre).
- IMPORTANT: After wet cutting, Þrst turn off the water feed and
then let the disc run at least 30 seconds, to ßing off the remaining
water and prevent corrosion.

Kickback and lock-in
-
-
-
-
-
When working with the Power Cut there is a danger of kickback
and lock-in.
Kickback occurs when the top of the cutting disc is used for
cutting (15).
This causes the Power Cut to be thrown back toward the user
with great force and out of control. Risk of injury!
To prevent kickback, observe the following:
Never cut with the section of the cutting disc shown in Þgure 15.
Be especially careful when reinserting the disc into cuts
that have already been started!
Lock-in occurs when the cut narrows (crack, or workpiece under
stress).
This causes the Power Cut to suddenly jump forward, out of
control and with great force. Risk of injury!
To prevent lock-in, observe the following:
When reinserting the disc into previous cuts, have the Power
Cut running at top speed. Always cut at top speed.
Always support the workpiece so that the cut is under tension
(16), so that the cut does not press together and jam the cutting
disc as it proceeds through the material.
When starting a cut, apply the disc to the workpiece with care.
Do not just shove it into the material.
Never cut more than one piece at a time! When cutting, make
sure that no other workpiece comes into contact.
15
Working behavior / Method of working
-
-
-
-
-
-
-
Before starting work, check the work area for any hazards
(electrical wires, inßammable substances). Clearly mark the
work area (for example with warning signs or by cordoning off
the area).
When working with the Power Cut hold it Þrmly by the front and
rear handles. Never leave the Power Cut unattended!
Use the Power Cut at high speed as far as possible (see “Technical Data”).
Only use the Power Cut during good light and visibility periods.
Be aware of slippery or wet areas, and of ice and snow (risk of
slipping).
Never work on unstable surfaces. Make sure that there are no
obstacles in the working area, risk of stumbling. Always ensure
that you have a safe footing.
Never cut above your shoulder height (17).
Never stand on a ladder to cut (17).
Never use the Power Cut while standing on scaffolding.
Do not lean over too far when working. When putting down and
picking up the Power Cut, do not bend over from the waist, but
instead bend in the knees. Save your back!
Guide the Power Cut in such a way that no part of your body
is within the extended swing range of the disc (18).
Use cutting discs only for the materials for which they are designed!
Use cutting discs only for the materials for which they are designed. Do not use the Power Cut to lift up and shovel away
pieces of material and other objects.
Important! Before cutting, remove all foreign objects, such as
rocks, gravel, nails etc. from the cutting area. Otherwise, such
objects can be ßung away by the disc with great speed. Injury
hazard!
When cutting workpieces down to length use a Þrm support.
If necessary, secure the workpiece from slipping, but do not
steady it with your foot or allow another person to hold it.
When cutting round items, always secure them against rotation.

When using synthetic resin cutting discs, always observe the following:
Cutting masonry and concrete
CAUTION:
Always wear approved respiratory protection!
-
Synthetic resin cutting discs can absorb moisture. This
moisture can cause the disc to become unbalanced at high
speed. This imbalance can cause the disc to break.
-
Do not cool resin cutting discs with water or other ßuids.
-
Do not expose resin cutting discs to high humidity or
rain!
Asbestos and other materials that can release toxic substances may be cut only after notifying the proper authorities
and under their supervision or that of a person appointed
by them. When cutting prestressed and reinforced concrete
piles, follow the instructions and standards of the responsible authorities or the builder of the structural member.
Reinforcement rods must be cut in the prescribed sequence
and in accordance with applicable safety regulations.
Do not use resin cutting discs past their use-by date (expiration date)! The date (quarter and year) is stamped on the disc’s
arbor ring.
EXAMPLE: 04 / 2015
This cutting disc can be used through the end of the fourth quarter
of 2015, if properly stored and correctly used.
IMPORTANT!
NOTE:
Mortar, stone, and concrete develop large quantities of dust during
cutting. To increase the lifetime of the cutting disc (by cooling),
to improve visibility, and to avoid excessive dust creation, we
strongly recommend wet cutting instead of dry cutting.
Cutting metals
IMPORTANT!
Always wear approved respiratory protection!
Materials that can release toxic substances may be cut only
after notifying the proper authorities and under their supervision or that of a person appointed by them.
CAUTION!
The rapid rotation of the cutting disc heats metal and melts it
at the point of contact. Swing the guard as far down as possible (19) in order to direct the stream of sparks forward, away
from the operator (Þre hazard).
-
Determine the cut line, mark the cut and apply the disc to the
material at moderate speed, to cut a guide groove before going
to top speed and applying more pressure to the Power Cut.
-
Keep the disc straight and vertical. Do not tip it, as this can
break it.
-
The best way to get a good, clean cut is to pull or move the
Power Cut back and forth. Do not simply press the disc into
the material.
-
Thick round stock is best cut in stages (20).
-
Thin tubing and pipes can be cut with a simple downward
cut.
-
Cut large-diameter pipes as for round stock. To prevent tipping
and for better control, do not let the disc sink too deeply into
the material. Instead, always cut shallow around the whole
piece.
-
Worn discs have a smaller diameter than new discs, so that at
the same engine speed they have a lower effective circumferential speed and therefore do not cut as well.
-
Cut I-beams and L-bars in steps; see Figure 21.
-
Cut bands and plates like pipes: along the wide side with a long
cut.
-
When cutting material under stress (supported material or material in structures), always make a notch in the thrust (pressure)
side, and then cut from the tension side, so that the disc does
not lock in. Secure cutoff material from falling!
19
20
CAUTION!
If there is a chance that the material is under stress, be prepared for it to kick back. Make sure you can get out of the
way if you have to!
Be particularly careful in scrap-metal yards, junkyards, at accident sites, and with haphazard piles of material. Precariously
balanced pieces or pieces under stress can act in unpredictable
ways, and may slide, jump out, or burst. Secure cutoff material
from falling! Always exercise extreme caution and use only
equipment that is in perfect working order.
Observe the accident-prevention rules and regulations of your
employer and/or insurance organization.
8
21
In wet cutting, the disc is wetted at an equal rate on both sides by
a trickle of water. MAKITA offers the right accessories for all wet
cutting applications (see also "SPECIAL ACCESSORIES").
-
Remove foreign objects such as sand, stones and nails found
within the working area. Caution: Watch out for electric wires
and cables!
The rapid rotation of the cutting disc at the point of contact
throws fragments out of the cut groove at high speed. For
your safety, swing the protection hood down as far as possible (23), so that material fragments are thrown forward,
away from the operator.
-
Mark the cut, and then make a groove about 5 mm (just under
1/5") along the entire length of the planned cut. This groove will
then guide the Power Cut accurately guring the actual cutoff.
-
Perform the cut with a steady back-and-forth motion.
-
When cutting slabs to size, you need not cut through the entire
material thickness (creating unnecessary dust). Instead, simply
make a shallow groove, and then knock off the excess material
cleanly on a ßat surface (25).
23
CAREFUL!
When cutting into lengths, cutting through material, making cutouts,
etc., always make sure to plan the direction and sequence of cuts
in such a way that the disc does not get jammed by the cut-off
piece, and that no persons can be injured by falling pieces.
Transport and storage
-
Always turn off the Power Cut when transporting it or
moving it from place to place on a site (26).
-
Never carry or move the unit with the engine on or the
disc moving!
-
Carry the unit only by the tubular (middle) handle with the cutting disc pointing behind you (26). Avoid touching the exhaust
mufßer (burn hazard!)
-
When moving the Power Cut over longer distances, use a
wheelbarrow or wagon.
-
When transporting the Power Cut in a vehicle, make sure it is
securely positioned in such a way that no fuel can leak out.
Always remove the cutting disc before transporting the unit in
a vehicle.
-
The Power Cut should be stored safely in a dry place. It must
not be left outdoors! Always dismount the cutting disc before
storage. Keep the Power Cut away from children.
-
Before long-term storage and before shipping the Power
Cut, follow the instructions in the chapter on "Periodic
care and maintenance". ALWAYS empty the fuel tank and
run the carburetor dry.
-
When putting cutting discs in storage, be careful to:
• Clean and dry them well. CAUTION: Do NOT clean synthetic
resin cutting discs with water or other ßuids!
• Store them lying down ßat.
• Avoid dampness, freezing temperatures, direct sunshine,
high temperatures and temperature ßuctuations, as these
can cause breakage and splintering.
• Before re-using a resin cutting disc, make sure of the use-by
(expiration) date (quarter and year, stamped on the arbor
ring). If this date has been exceeded, do NOT use the cutting
disc.
-
25
26
Always check new cutting discs or cutting discs that have
been in storage to make sure that they are free of defects
and before the Þrst cut test-run the tool at top speed for at
least 60 seconds. Keep body parts and people well away out
of range of the direction of the cutting disc during this test.
9
Maintenance
-
Before performing maintenance work switch off the Power
Cut (27) and pull out the plug cap.
-
Always check the Power Cut before using it to make sure that
it is in good working order. In particular, make sure that the
cutting disc is properly mounted. Make sure that the cutting
wheel is undamaged and suitable for the job it will be used
for.
-
Operate the Power Cut only at a low noise and emission level.
For this ensure the carburetor is adjusted correctly.
-
Clean the Power Cut regularly.
-
Check the fuel tank cap regularly for good sealing.
27
Observe the accident prevention instructions issued by
trade associations and insurance companies. NEVER
make any modiÞcations to the Power Cut! You will only
be putting your own safety at risk!
Perform only the maintenance and repair works described in
the instruction manual. All other work must be carried out by
MAKITA Service.
Use only original MAKITA spares and accessories.
The use of non-MAKITA spares, accessories, or cutting discs
increases the risk of accident. We cannot accept any responsibility for accidents or damage occurring in association with
the use of cutting discs or accessories other than original
MAKITA.

PUTTING INTO OPERATION
CAUTION:
Always turn off the engine and pull off the spark plug cap
before doing any work on the Power Cut! Always wear
protective gloves!
CAUTION:
Start the Power Cut only after complete assembly and
inspection.
For the the following work, use the assembly tools included
with delivery:
1. 13/19 AF combination wrench
2. Allen key
3. Carburetor adjustment screwdriver
Place the Power Cut on a stable surface and carry out the following assembly steps:
Sequence
Mounting the cutting disc
Inspect the disc for damage.
See SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS, Page 6.
Unscrew screw (9) and remove the spring washer (8).
Place the cutting disc (5) on the arbour (7).
NOTE: The arbor hole of the cutting disc must be an exact Þt
with the arbor or shaft.
For cutoff discs with 25.4 mm (1”) arbor holes, use the correct size disc holder (supplied only with cutoff discs with 25.4
mm (1”) arbor holes). Non-compliance can cause serious
injury!
Make sure the cutting disc is installed so it turns in the right
direction, if a direction is marked on the disc.
11
10
Place the spring washer (8) on the arbour and insert the screw
(9) and tighten by hand.
8
Slowly turn the cutoff disc until a hole (11) in the V-belt pulley is
visible in the counter-holding opening (10) of the cutting arm.
Insert the Allen key (2) as far as it will go. The shaft is now
blocked.
Tighten the screw with the combination wrench (1).
2
1
NOTE: Tighten the screw Þrmly (30 ± 2 Nm), as otherwise
the cutting wheel may slip during cutting.
Remove the Allen key and combination tool.
13
Fuel
CAUTION:
This saw is powered by mineral-oil products (gasoline and
oil).
Be especially careful when handling gasoline.
Avoid all ßame or Þre. Do not smoke (explosion hazard).
Fuel mixture
This tool is powered by a high-performance air-cooled twostroke engine. It runs on a mixture of gasoline and two-stroke
engine oil.
The engine is designed for unleaded regular gasoline with a min.
octane value of 91 ROZ. In case no such fuel is available, you
can use fuel with a higher octane value. This will not affect the
engine.

In order to obtain an optimum engine output and to protect
your health and the environment use unleaded fuel only.
To lubricate the engine, use a synthetic oil for two-stroke aircooled engines (quality grade JASO FC or ISO EGD), which
has to be added to the fuel. The engine has been designed for
use of MAKITA high-performance two-stroke engine oil and a
mixture ratio of only 50:1 to protect the environment. In addition,
a long service life and reliable operation with a minimum emission
of exhaust gases are ensured.
MAKITA high-performance two-stroke engine oil is available in the
following sizes to suit your individual requirements:
100 ml
order number 980 008 606
1
order number 980 008 607
l
In case MAKITA high-performance two-stroke engine oil is not
available, it is urgently recommended to use a mixture ratio of
50:1 with other two-stroke engine oils (quality grade: JASO FC or
ISO EGD), as otherwise optimum operation of the engine cannot
be guaranteed.
It is not wise to add more engine oil than speciÞed
to ensure safe operation. This will only result in a
higher production of combustion residues which
will pollute the environment and clog the exhaust
channel in the cylinder as well as the mufßer. In addition, fuel consumption will rise and performance
will decrease.
The Storage of Fuel
Fuels have a limited storage life. Fuel and fuel mixtures
age through evaporation, especially at high temperatures. Aged fuel and fuel mixtures can cause starting
problems and damage the engine.
Purchase only that amount of fuel, which will be consumed over the next few months. At high temperatures,
once fuel has been mixed it should be used up in 6-8
weeks.
Store fuel only in proper containers, in dry, cool,
secure locations!
Caution: Do not use ready-mixed fuel from petrol stations.
The correct mixture ratio:
50:1
when using MAKITA high-performance two-stroke engine
oil, i. e. mix 50 parts gasoline with 1 part oil.
50:1
when using other synthetic two-stroke engine oils
(quality grade JASO FC or ISO EGD), i. e. mix 50 parts
gasoline with 1 part oil.
NOTE: For preparing the fuel-oil mixture Þrst mix the entire oil
quantity with half of the fuel required, then add the remaining
fuel. Thoroughly shake the mixture before Þlling it into the chain
saw tank.
Caution: Open the tank cap carefully, as pressure might have
built up inside!
14
AVOID SKIN AND EYE CONTACT
Mineral oil products degrease your skin. If your skin
comes in contact with these substances repeatedly and
for an extended period of time, it will desiccate. Various
skin deseases may result. In addition, allergic reactions
are known to occur.
Eyes can be irritated by contact with oil. If oil comes into
your eyes, immediately wash them with clear water. If your
eyes are still irritated, see a doctor immediately!
Refuelling
IMPORTANT:
FOLLOW THE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS!
Be careful and cautious when handling fuels.
The engine must be turned off and cooled down!
Carefully clean the area around the fuel-tank Þller neck to keep
dirt from getting in the tank.
Place the Power Cut on an even surface.
Unscrew the tank cap and Þll tank with fuel mixture. Take care
to avoid spilling.
Screw the tank cap back on hand-tight.
Clean screw cap and tank after refuelling. Never start or
operate the Power Cut in the same place as it was
fuelled!
If fuel gets on your clothing, change clothes immediately.

IMPORTANT: To cut off the ignition current, push the combination switch all the way down past the resistance point to the
safety position (
).
Adjusting the carburetor
NOTE: The grinding parts are equipped with an electronic
ignition to limit the speed.
At the factory the idling speed has been set to approx.
2600 rpm, but the running-in process of a new engine may
require slight readjustment of the idling speed.
Adjustments to the adjusting screws (L) and (H) may only
be made by an authorised MAKITA service centre.
7
For correct adjustment of the idling speed the following
steps must be carried out:
T
Start the engine and run it until it is warm (about 3 - 5
minutes).
L
Adjust the carburetor with the screwdriver (7, Order No. 944
340 001) included with the Power Cut. It has a lug that helps
with adjustment.
Readjust the idling speed.
If the cutoff disc turns when the engine is idling, turn the throttle
stop screw (T) counter-clockwise in small increments until the
disc no longer turns.
If the engine suddenly stops in idle, turn the screw back slightly
clockwise.
Switch off the engine.
MAINTENANCE
CAUTION:
Before doing any work on the Power Cut turn off the engine,
remove the cutting disc, pull the plug cap off the spark plug
and wear protective gloves!
CAUTION:
Start the Power Cut only after complete assembly and
inspection.
17
IMPORTANT:
Because many of the parts and assemblies not mentioned
in this Instruction Manual are vital to the safety of the
unit, and because all parts are subject to a certain amount
of wear and tear, it is important for your own safety that
you have the unit checked and maintained regularly by a
MAKITA service center.
IMPORTANT:
SERVICE
If the cutting wheel breaks during cutting, the
Power Cut must be repaired by a MAKITA service
centre before being used again!

Use the combination tool to turn the eccentric (6) forcefully
clockwise to its original position (V-belt is now tight).
4
Tighten the nut (4).
Remove Allen key from hole (3).
3
Put the belt cover (2) on and tighten the bolts (1).
7
6
18
Note: The V-belt is highly elastic, so it is not necessary to
retighten it.
A worn V-belt causes the cutoff disc turns at the lowest idle
speed. In this case, the V-belt must be replaced!
Cleaning the protection hood
Over time, the inside of the protective hood can become caked
with material residue (especially from wet cutting), which if
allowed to accumulate can hinder the free rotation of the cutting disc. For this reason the hood must be cleaned out from
time to time.
Take off the cutting wheel with spring washer and remove the
accumulated material from inside the hood with a strip of wood
or similar implement.
NOTE: To install the cutting wheel see ”Mounting the cutting
wheel”.
Clean the shaft and all removed parts.
Cleaning / changing the air Þlter
CAUTION:
Turn off the engine before cleaning the air Þlter! Never clean
out the air Þlter with compressed air! Do not use fuel to
clean the air Þlter insert (3) and inner Þlter (6).
The service life of the engine depends on the condition
and regular maintenance of the Þlter elements. Failure
to perform maintenance and cleaning at the prescribed
intervals will cause increased wear inside the engine!
If the air Þlter becomes damaged, replace immediately!
Pieces of cloth or large dirt particles can destroy the engine!
Do not work in dusty conditions when it can be avoided!
The Þne dust generated when dry-cutting concrete and
stone is hazardous to the health of the operator and also
shortens the service life of the engine. Whenever possible,
wet-cut with water when working in concrete and stone,
to bind the dust.
Loosen both bolts (1) and remove the Þlter cover (2).
7
Take the air Þlter cover (3) out of the cover (5).
Loosen the six bolts (4) on the cover and remove the cover.

Inner Þlter
Wash out the dirty inner Þlter (6, Order No. 315 173 020) in
lukewarm soapy water with regular dishwashing liquid.
Let the inner Þlter dry thoroughly.
3
Air Þlter insert (paper cartridge)
The air Þlter insert (3, Order No. 315 173 010) Þlters the intake
air through a very Þne paper Þlter lamella system. For this
reason the cartridge must never be washed or cleaned with
compressed air. Check the air Þlter insert once per month and
clean if necessary.
4
5
To clean the air Þlter insert, spread it out slightly and carefully
tap it against a clean surface.
Replace the air Þlter insert every 500 operating hours. Replace it immediately if there is a drop in power, drop in speed,
or smoke in the exhaust.
Before installing the Þlter system, check the intake opening to
make sure no dirt particles have fallen in. If they have, remove
them.

SPECIAL ACCESSORIES
Diamond cutting discs
Pressurized water tank
MAKITA diamond cutting discs meet the highest demands
in working safety, ease of operation, and economical cutting performance. They can be used for cutting all materials
except metal.
To keep down dust and for better cutting-disc cooling, MAKITA
offers several options for wetting the disc during operation.
The high durability of the diamond grains ensures low wear
and thereby a very long service life with almost no change in
disc diameter over the lifetime of the disc. This gives consistent
cutting performance and thus high economy. The outstanding
cutting qualities of the discs make cutting easier.
The pressurized water tank is connected to the Power Cut by
the water set on the protective hood.
See “Accessories” for order number.
The metal disc plates give highly concentric running for minimal
vibration during use.
The use of diamond cutting discs reduces cutting time signiÞcantly. This in turn leads to lower operating costs (fuel
consumption, wear on parts, repairs, and last but not least
environmental damage).
