RipCut Saw Chain

Ripping • Smooth

 

Any saw mill worker will tell you that ripping chain is different from all other saw chains. You need a special kind of chain for ripping cuts, the kind that transforms raw timber into the boards and planks used in homes and businesses. Oregon’s RipCut is a ripping chain designed specifically for chain-type sawmills, producing smooth cuts with supreme efficiency.

RipCut’s precise ripping cuts give you a smooth surface every time you cut parallel to the wood grain. RipCut isn’t recommended for hand-held use, but that suits experienced millwrights just fine. For ripping cuts only. Do not use these chains for any type of cutting other than ripping.
