If you need ripping chain that turns raw timber into boards and planks, Oregon’s RipCut saw chain is made specifically for you. RipCut’s Micro Chisel cutters create smooth ripping cuts that are perfect for chain-type sawmills.

RipCut Saw Chain

27RX is a super-skip sequence that allows greater chip clearance when making extra wide cuts.
