Ripping chain features a special factory grind for making dimensional boards and planks from timber by ""ripping"" it (cutting parallel to the wood grain). Equipping your chainsaw with Norwood SabreChain ripping chain improves performance when you saw boards with your chainsaw and Norwood’s PortaMill PM14 chainsaw sawmill.
Norwood’s SabreChain ripping chain features standard chassis and cutter parts. The cutter grind is the only difference from standard cross-cut chain.
Made from patented steel alloy that is more durable in both cold and standard weather conditions, Norwood ripping chain is tested and proven to be 125% tougher at minus 20° Fahrenheit and 20% tougher at room temperature.
Norwood ripping chain feature Oregon’s LubriLink™ cavities in the chain tie-straps that act like reservoirs, reducing oil dispersal off the chain by centrifugal force. This helps hold oil in the chain parts when it slows or stops, thereby improving chain performance and helping extend chain life
