We’ve gotten a lot of interest lately about cut off saw and fire rescue saw maintenance, so we decided to repost this article on changing a Husqvarna K970 saw’s drive belt. Tell us what you think!

Knowing how to change the drive belt on your Husqvarna cut off saw or fire rescue saw can improve your cutting performance and extend your saw’s life – in other words, save you time and money. Husqvarna has put out a helpful video showing you how to do just that.

The cut off saw shown here is a Husqvarna K970 saw. However, you should be able to use this procedure on any of Husqvarna’s K970 or K760 saws, like the Husqvarna K760 fire rescue saw and K970 fire rescue saw.

Regular readers of this blog may recognize some of these steps from our partner Brotherhood Instructors, LLC‘s video on how to convert a Husqvarna fire rescue saw to outboard cutting. That’s good news for you, because if you can do that, then you can certainly do this.

How to Change the Spark Plug on a Husqvarna K960 Power Saw

Firefighting Articles from Desert Diamond IndustriesThere’s only so much equipment that you can bring to a call. Sometimes, that means bringing only one power saw. But what if something happens to that one saw – like, say, you flood the engine and foul the spark plug? The answer is that you better fix it, pronto.

Our partners at Brotherhood Instructors, LLC produced this video on how to replace the spark plug on a Husqvarna K960 power saw. No matter what kind of saw you use, though, you should practice how to replace and repair, not only the spark plug, but every other part as quickly and efficiently as possible. After all, the more time your equipment is down, the greater your chances of losing lives.
