Has your Husqvarna saw lost power? The problem may not be with your saw, but with its air filter.
Your Husqvarna gas saw has a high-efficiency Active Air Filtration system that protects the engine when cutting in dusty worksites. When this filter gets filled with dust, it blocks air to the engine, reducing its power.
We don’t recommend that you run your saw without the air filter. Doing so will let dust get into the engine, increasing engine wear and shortening your saw’s life. Instead, change the filter when you notice a drop in your saw’s power. Installing a new air filter is (relatively) cheap – cheaper than bringing in your saw for repairs, at least – and should restore your saw’s performance.

You can convert Husqvarna saws with “reversible cutting arms”, like the K760 Fire Rescue Gas Saw and K970 Fire Rescue Gas Saw, to “outboard” cutting. This conversion moves the blade from the saw’s centerline to its side, allowing you to cut closer to walls and floors. You may find this to be useful if you’re a firefighter, according to our partners at Brotherhood Instructors, LLC, because it lets you cut boltheads and foot bolts easier during forcible entries. In this video, Brotherhood Instructors demonstrates how to set up a Husqvarna K960 Fire Rescue Gas Saw for outboard cutting.
Oh, and watch for the cameo by the Fire Rescue Safety Blade!
