Introducing the TS 440, a cut-off machine that will stop in the event of significant kickback. When operated with the guard in the open position, kickback will activate the wheel brake system causing it to stop the rotation of the cutting wheel.

This specialised and unique braking system provides an added safety measure where the risk of kickback is considered significant, such as when pipe cutting.

① Weight excluding fuel and cutting wheel. ② K-factor according to DIR 2006/42/EC = 2.5 dB (A). ③ K-factor according to DIR 2006/42/EC = 2m / s2
TS 440 comes standard with an abrasive wheel.


Use of the brake

  • Before starting the engine - brake is engaged and wheel cannot turn
  • Start with the brake engaged - machine idles, wheel does not turn
  • Pull the brake lever toward the front handle - brake is released

When you shut off the machine, the wheel will continue to turn for a few seconds before the brake engages. Always refer to the product instruction manual for further operating information.
