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 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.
