2-stroke power cutter solution for every application.
The Makita 16" Power Cutter (model EK8100) is a gas power cutter engineered to meet the demand for convenience and performance. The EK8100 delivers with faster starting, more power, and improved fuel economy. The EK8100 has an 81 cc engine with 5.6 HP (maximum horsepower) to take on the most demanding applications. The ignition coil with start-support function stores electrical power with each pull for easier start-ups. It’s engineered for reduced flooding with a carburetor that includes improved deco-valve and metering spring for precise fuel regulation at start up. The EK8100 also features more efficient fuel consumption with an SLR muffler that recycles unburned fuel vapor for reduced scavenging-losses and 15% improved consumption.
The EK8100 also features a five-stage foam-paper-nylon air filter system with advance directional air flow that provides cleaner air for better saw performance and easy filter cleaning and replacement. The EK8100 is engineered for professional concrete cutting applications and is ideal for landscapers, road construction crews, railroad crews, rescue crews, general steel contractors,masons, and welders.
