During World of Concrete, Husqvarna Construction showcased upcoming battery-powered light construction equipment that will help contractors work without fuel, cords and direct emissions.
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, according to the manufacturer.
