Makita has delivered a new 14-inch 61 cc power cutter, model EK6101, engineered for industrial performance with a full range of features but with less weight at only 19.6 pounds.

"The EK6101 has less weight than other power cutters in the category, and is engineered with efficiency features that include faster and easier starts, reduced maintenance, and improved fuel economy," says Adam Livingston, product manager, commercial products. "This latest release in Makita's concrete cutting line-up means we can now offer a power cutter specific to most common user applications and needs."

Increased Fuel Efficiency
The compact and efficient EK6101 is powered by a 61 cc engine with a full 4.4 hp for demanding concrete cutting applications. The Stratified Air Scavenging (SAS) sends air flow through the transfer port to push the burned gases through the exhaust outlet, recovering up to 75 percent of unburned fuel to reduce fuel consumption by 20 percent. Another point of difference is the cyclonic air intake, which delivers more air more efficiently, and increases air filter life by discarding up to 90 percent of larger debris. In addition, the larger surface inverted intake and filter system extends filter life and service intervals.

Easier Starts, Less Noise and Vibration
For increased user comfort, the EK6101 is engineered to start easier and vibrate less. The start capacitor with spring-assisted recoil stores electrical energy, resulting in significantly less pull start force. The sliding front engine mounts help absorb vibration by detaching when cutting pressure is applied. It also has lower noise (97 dB(A)) than other power cutters in the category, with smoother idle for continuous operation.

The compact and efficient EK6101 is an ideal cutting solution for metal decking, angle iron, i-beams, cast iron pipe, brick/masonry, stone/concrete blocks, railroad rails, road curbs and asphalt. Blade sold separately.

Expanding Power Cutter Line-up
The compact and powerful EK6101 is the latest Makita solution for concrete cutting. Others include the 14-inch MM4 power cutter (model EK7651H), the world's first four-stroke engine power cutter that requires no fuel-oil mixing and delivers easier starts, lower emissions and lower operation costs for premium performance. The 14-inch 73 cc power cutter (model EK7301), delivers more horsepower with the added convenience of flush-cutting for a combination of power and performance.
