Description: The Novatek hydropowered chainsaw uses a Cheetah frame, blade and chain, powered by a Novatek pelton motor and lubrication system. It is designed for cutting of timber supports in working areas equipped with hydropower. The Novatek-powered chainsaw has the following features: • It incorporates the advantages of the Cheetah saw, namely: • Well established in the industry. • Self-levelling frame. • Patented automatic chain tensioning achieved by simply releasing and retightening a single nut, no operator adjustment is required. • Light weight and portability. • Standard tool steel or optional tungsten carbide tipped chain. • Direct injection of chain lube. The Novatek lubricator automatically applies chain lubrication during each cut. • The Novatek pelton motor provides a simple and powerful drive for quick cutting and water flushing of woodchips. • The motor is controlled via a simple trigger valve based on a proven robust design incorporating a safety catch – operated with one hand while the other hand is used to feed the saw into the cut. • Heavy duty cage encloses all components and hoses, allowing the saw to withstand harsh mining conditions.
