Costly engine and machine repair bills are set to be a thing of the past, following the launch of the Husqvarna K760 OilGuard System this week by Speedy, the largest equipment rental and services company in the UK.

Specially designed to prevent engine damage, machine breakdowns and ultimately costly repairs, the K760 OilGuard uses an optical sensor system to detect when the incorrect oil/fuel mixture is used or if there is insufficient oil in the engine, both of which contribute to expensive and often irreparable damage to pistons and cylinders.

To further protect from damage, the K760 OilGuard uses a 15 second flush-out time to detect oil quantity and quality and it immediately reduces engine speed to ‘idle’ to avoid additional damage from occurring.  The machine will then not operate until the fuel tank is emptied, and refuelled with correct mix. This is the perfect solution for contractors who use a mix of two-stroke and four-stoke equipment.

The specially coloured K760 OilGuard oil - developed for dusty environments like construction sites - is suitable for use in all two stroke equipment found in the construction industry.

Steve Hallam, from Husqvarna, says: “We’re confident that the K760 OilGuard will be well received by those working in the construction industry and we are extremely pleased that it is already a Green zone machine.  By using a fuel mixture of unleaded petrol and OilGuard oil this ensures the K760 stays firmly in the Green zone.”

Andy Connor, Supply Chain Director at Speedy adds: “This is a great addition to our portfolio of products and what is particularly unique about the K760 is that it features the new generation of Active Air Filtration™, one of the most efficient air filtration systems on the market, delivering operational times - for dry cutting - of up to one year, with no filter service required.  Also, the K760’s  X-TORQ® engine produces 75 per cent less emissions, 20 per cent lower fuel consumption and more power.  Both of these features I’m sure will appeal to contractors across the UK, making the K760 an integral piece of equipment.”
