During World of Concrete, Husqvarna Construction showcased upcoming battery-powered light construction equipment that will help contractors work without fuel, cords and direct emissions. Opening opportunities to take on new tasks and do the job — more quietly and with ease.
During the show, contractors had a chance to experience several battery-powered products from two different battery ecosystems.
Powerful. Agile. Cordless. Electric. The PACE battery system unveiled with the K1 PACE high power battery cutter. With K1 PACE contractors can expect power and performance equivalent to gas-powered cutters with all the additional benefits battery-powered equipment brings to both operators and the environment. You can pair the K1 PACE with specially developed, battery-specific diamond blades. The K1 PACE and diamond blades will be available to purchase during Q2 2022.
You can utilize the PACE battery system for more machines as the battery-powered family expands in the future.
