KTM CS 70 / KTM Chainsaw


The chainsaw is the most dangerous handtool ever. This study of a chainsaw KTM shows that an aggressive, futuristic design language of such a machine will be much fairer than it commercially saws happens. The degree of innovation is also higher because the predominant package was broken and a lot of innovations could be developed. One example is the completely continuous handsystem which is hydraulically damped by the vibrating body of the saw.
