Hougen Manufacturing Inc./Trak-Star

Trak-Star® offers a 7-horsepower gas powered Husqvarna® model K-1270 rail saw. Weighing only 46.7 pounds, it has an air-cooled, two stroke, 7.25 cu in gas engine and uses a 14 or 16-inch diameter abrasive Trak-Star Trak Blade™ with a 6-inch depth of cut capacity. Well-balanced, ergonomic handles, a precision clamp and an anti-vibration system enable the operator to produce quick, easy cuts at perfect right angles with minimal fatigue, the company says. The SmartCarb™ fuel system is designed to maintain continuous performance even when air filters are beginning to clog. The Active Air Filtration™ system removes up to 80 percent of debris before air passes through filters, the company says
