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

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.

 

Intangibles

 

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.

Time is money, and choosing the correct diamond cutting blades and can save you a lot of time. Buying from findasaw.com 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.
