Stihl Launches TS 440 Cutquik Cut-Off Machine
Versatile enough for general construction applications, and a powerful choice for limited access cuts, the TS 440 Stihl Cutquik cut-off machine (66.7 cc) represents the latest in professional cutting solutions from Stihl. The TS 440 introduction gives professionals a product suited for challenging cuts such as bottom portions of walls, cutting in corners, and cutting the underside of in-ground pipes made of concrete, ductile iron, vitrified clay and steel, and similar situations where traditional cut-off machine guard positions limit cutting access. The expanded guard adjustability is made possible by the world-first sensor-activated Stihl QuickstopT wheel brake technology capable of stopping the rotation of the cutting wheel in fractions of a second if kickback occurs.
Ground-Breaking Innovation Allows for Expanded Utility
The Stihl QuickstopT wheel brake is designed to allow for extended guard adjustability by reducing the risk of injury from kickback when the guard on the TS 440 has been adjusted to expose the top portion of the wheel.
“The toughest of cutting operations will be performed more easily than ever before,” said Thomas Techow, Stihl Inc. product manager.
High Torque Performance & Premium Features
The TS 440 two-belt drive delivers high torque to the wheel, reducing the chance of bogging when applying higher feed force. The top handle design makes for a well-balanced and compact product, increasing maneuverability for superior handling during the toughest jobs.
The TS 440 shares many features of the legendary family of Stihl Cutquik cut-off machines, including:
• Electronic water control allows for easy and efficient water flow adjustment while cutting. The water control feature remembers the last setting used and water flow automatically stops at idle speed and starts again when the throttle is engaged.
• The X2 air filtration system is virtually maintenance-free and maintains an incredible 99.96 percent cleaning efficiency.
• The ElastoStart™ starter handle is a starting grip with a built-in shock absorber that helps reduce the effort when pulling on the starter cord.
• Stihl anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
