Husqvarna K 760 or Stihl TS 410?

ts 410 and K760
Most professionals we supply have a preference for either the Husqvarna K 760 or the Stihl TS 410. Well, actually quite a few still hold that the Stihl TS 400 remains the greatest disc cutter of all time. But, since the TS 400 is no longer available, the K 760 and the TS 410 are the most popular choices.

Both of these are high quality machines, built to cut brick, concrete and a variety of other materials. Both have been built with up-to-date systems to manage vibrations and filter dust. But we were interested to discover which is, overall, the better machine.


Husqvarna K 760 compared to the Stihl TS 410

K 760TS 410
Husqvarna K 760Stihl TS 410
Power output: 3.7 kWPower output: 3.2 kW
Weight without cutting wheel: 9.6 kgWeight without cutting wheel: 9.4 kg
Max cutting depth: 100 mmMax cutting depth: 100 mm
Max cutting depth: 100 mmMax cutting depth: 100 mm
Sound pressure level: 101 dB(A)Sound pressure level: 109.0 dB(A)
Vibrations front/rear handle: 2.4/2.4 m/s²Vibration levels left/right m/s²: 3.9/3.9


On the surface the machine spec look very similar, with the Husqvarna edging ahead in terms of power and noise, while the Stihl comes in a at a lighter weight. The biggest difference is the vibrations. This may be overlooked when it comes to other considerations, but vibration can seriously affect the user. Wrexham council were recently fined £150, 000 over their failure to tackle hand-arm vibration syndrome. The Husqvarna has a far lower vibration level, reducing the strain on the user.




There is another big consideration; price. We retail the Husqvarna K 760 at £459, ex. Vat. We supply the Stihl TS 410 at £499 ex. Vat. That alone may sway many of our customers. We have, however, heard many industry professionals say that they find the size and shape of the TS 410 easier and more comfortable to use. It also has a reputation for being a hard-wearing machine, with long intervals between services or repairs.

Again, both of these are well regarded, robust concrete saws that will likely serve you for years to come. We would recommend coming in to talk to us in person about the pros and cons of each, before you purchase. Whatever you choose, we can promise that we will support you through the lifetime of your purchase, with expert advice, genuine parts and a wide range of blades and oils.

And for those of you who still use the TS 400, be assured that we can still provide blades, parts and repairs.

Chainsaw Clothing and Forestry PPE

Chainsaws have the potential to cause serious injury, but that risk can be mitigated with high quality chainsaw clothing. Most injuries caused by chainsaws are to the hands, legs and feet. Less than ten percent of chainsaw accidents involve the head of neck, although wearing a chainsaw helmet to protect yourself is rarely a bad idea.

At we stock a range of PPE, including chainsaw trousers, boots and gloves. Customers often have questions about these products, so we are laying out as much information as we can.


Chainsaw Clothing: Trousers

chainsaw clothing trousers

We receive more questions about the different types of chainsaw trousers than we do about any other PPE. Firstly, there is the difference between type A and type C. Type A trousers have protection at the front only. This is where most accidents are likely to occur. Type C have protection all the way around the legs, front and back. This is usually more important for professional tree surgeons, who need to work in tight and awkward spaces. Type C is also advisable for those working alongside other chainsaw users.

We then have the class of chainsaw clothing. The class refers to the speed of the chainsaw used in the test. Effectively the higher the class, the more protection. The trade-off is that that the chainsaw trousers are more expensive, hotter and heavier.

Chainsaw Clothing: Boots

chainsaw clothing boots

Chainsaw boots are another important aspect of chainsaw clothing. The protection offered is either protective toe cap, or protective toecap and midsole. We have chosen to stock only boots which offer full protection, so any boots you see on our website offer toecap and midsole protection.

Like any other shoes or boots, it is important that chainsaw boots fit comfortably. Your chainsaw clothing is no use if it is causing you to slip or move on a regular basis. We recommend coming to visit us, so you can try boots on if possible. However, if you buy online be sure to try the boots on somewhere dry and clean so that you can return them for another size if they do not fit.


Chainsaw Clothing: Gloves

chainsaw clothing gloves

Chainsaw gloves, like other forms of chainsaw clothing, will use the class rating. The higher the class the more protection they offer. Some gloves offer left hand only protection, as this is normally the hand closest to the chain. Other offer protection on both hands. Higher rated gloves can feel stiff and reduce dexterity, so ensure that you are comfortable and that the glove fits correctly.

We also include climbing gloves in our range of chainsaw clothing. These do not offer any extra protection against chainsaw accidents.


Of course, we offer other types of chainsaw clothing as well, including chainsaw helmets, ear protectors, goggles and safety glasses. More our full range please check out the PPE section of our website, and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or special requirements.

Husqvarna Cut N Break

At first glance the Cut N Break looks complicated or unusual, when compared to a regular disc cutter. Let us clarify the benefits of the model and what it’s capable of. While it looks different from a classic power cutter we all know, it nevertheless provides a valuable balance between cost, depth and power.

It’s cutting applications include:

  • Cast Concrete
  • Pipes
  • Adjustment to Openings
  • Blocks
  • Curbstones
  • Garden Paving
  • Deep Cutting
  • Pipe Trenches


Cutting channels and apertures into hard materials is a challenge. While the Cut N Break models may seem unconventional, they provide one of the easiest and most effective ways to open walls or floors. The duel diamond blades cut through concrete and masonry leaving a core, easily broken out with the specially designed crowbar, provided with the kit. Furthermore, once the core is out the Cut N Break can continue to cut in the channel. Because the length of the arm allows the Cut N Break to cut to depth of around 400mm, you can cut further than the depth of a typical double-skinned brick wall.

The K760 Cut N Break

K760 Cut N Break


The K760 Cut N Break is petrol powered, using the same engine as the ever popular K760. This, most of all, means that it is reliable, easy to repair and easy to use in almost any environment. Designed for construction professionals, and as a result, is a powerful machine. It needs to be heavy enough to contain the vibrations and kickback. As a result, this machine is recommended for users who are comfortable with professional cutting tools.




The K3000 Cut N Break

K760 Cut N Break



The second, increasingly popular, option is the K3000 Cut N Break. This model uses the K3000 electric motor to drive the twin blades, meaning that you don’t have to worry about emissions. Consequently, the trade-off is that you will need a power source to run the saw. This model is, most commonly, used in interior spaces and environments where noise is a concern. This model is popular when working in or around medical and residential facilities.







When choosing an option you must reflect the work you undertake. If you need any further advice or information, don’t hesitate to contact us. We want to ensure that you have the right tools for your job, and we want to support you across the lifetime of your purchase. Findasaw can provide you with blades, parts, oil and  the accessories which you need to get the most out of your purchase.

Diamond Core Bits

Diamond Core Bits

Picking the Right Diamond Core Bits

Many construction jobs require cutting through hard materials, providing access for wiring, pipes or just to open interior spaces for further work. Using diamond core bits with a heavy-duty drill is an effective and efficient way to complete these tasks. We have drill core bits are available in a wide range of lengths and sizes, ensuring that the depth and width of your cutting is exact.
The wide range of different diamond core bits available can seem daunting. We have compiled a shortlist of the key characteristics to look out for when you need a diamond core bit.


Diamond Core Bits

Wet or Dry

It is important to know ahead of time if you will be cutting wet or dry. While most diamond core bits we sell support both methods, it is always worth taking the time to check.

Diamond Core Bits


Will you be drilling through a single material, or does your job require drilling through a few different types? If you are going to use the diamond core bits exclusively for drilling through concrete, for example, you may want to invest in a specialist bit. If, however, you will also need to drill through brick, stone or other masonry then you should consider a diamond core bit with a wider range.

Diamond Core Bits

Length and Diameter

Not all diamond core bits are available in every length and diameter. Make sure that any holes you are drilling are wide enough to provide the necessary access. Also consider the space you will have to drill in. If there is no room for a right-angle drill, you may still be able to go through at an angle. We would suggest using a drill stand if that is the case, ensuring your diamond core bit drill through evenly.

Diamond Core Bits


Diamond core bits are available in gold, silver and bronze performance grades. Consider how long you would like to keep the drill bit for. A more expensive diamond core bit that lasts will work out cheaper than repeatedly replacing a lower performance grade.

We hope that helps you pick out the diamond core bit which is right for you. For more information on the Husqvarna Diamond Core Bits range, you can visit this link: Husqvarna Diamond Core Bits

Diamond Cutting Blades

Whether you are cutting concrete, stone or asphalt, you are cutting some of the hardest materials known to man. In order to cut through these materials with maximum precision, speed and efficiency you need tools that are harder still. Diamond cutting blades are the best solution for the job and at we stock the very best in Husqvarna tools.

Because of the wide range of materials, and the differences between machines, it is important to ensure that you are picking the right disc for the right job. Furthermore it is worth thinking about how long you will be using the diamond cutting blade for. With the diagrams and advice below we want to help you make the right choices for your job or project.

BRONZE Diamond Cutting Blades

Time is money, and choosing the correct diamond cutting blades and can save you a lot of time. Buying from means you can always get qualified help and advice if something does not work as you expect. Remember, price and quality tend to go together. A low-cost blade might seem like a saving, but if you are going to use the tool professionally you may need to replace it faster than you might like. Consequently it is important to look at the lifetime use of the diamond cutting blade before you make a purchase decision.

Another major consideration in that the diamond cutting blade should be adapted to the machine’s power as well as the application and the materials you will cut. You can either opt for a universal tool that works well on several different materials or an optimised tool designed for cutting a specific material. Be sure to check that the bore will fit with the machine you are planning to use.

Decide which of the tool’s properties is most important to you – cutting speed or wear resistance. While a high cutting speed helps you get the job done quickly, and with less effort, it can result in a shortened lifespace of the blade. High wear resistance means longer service life in more extensive jobs, but ensure you are aware that you will be taking more time to cut through. Whatever you need, we will work with you to make sure you have the right tools to continue your work.
