Product Description

Not familiar with Granberg terminology? Here’s some quick definitions!

LOOP= CHAIN. A loop of chain means one length of chain that has been linked together. Ready to use right out of the box!

DRIVE LINK COUNT= NUMBER OF TEETH. The teeth are located on the side of the chain that runs in the groove of the bar. Counting the number of teeth helps to determine what length of chain you need.

COMPLETE GUIDE TO RIPPING CHAIN

**Order by drive link quantity.** We loop every chain unless otherwise requested, so they are ready to use out of the box. There is a $3 loop charge added to every chain.

READ THIS BEFORE ORDERING CHAIN!

General Description: Granberg ripping saw chain is made up of one set (2) scoring cutters and one set (2) clearing cutters. While there are many companies that sell chain for milling, no other company offers ripping chain that features our specific modifications to the top plate. Our process shaves off approximately half of the tooth lengthwise on the first and second cutter links of each 4 link group. By this method, each tooth takes only ¼ of the kerf, takes less feeding pressure than conventional chain, cuts faster, smoother, and takes less power than conventional full tooth (cross cut) chain.

    Although a good concept to have focused and different cutting loads on designated cutters, the implementation of Grandberg Rip Chain is flawed. As a professional woodworker/furniture maker with over forty years’ experience, I’m very familiar with saw blade design and function. There are several saw blade styles that isolate the area to be cut, generally one tooth does not take a full cut while another tooth takes a “subset” of the cutting kerf. Take for example, an ATB or Tripple Chip saw blades. No tooth covers the complete kerf. Although there is overlapping cutting areas, each tooth has a cutting zone that is unique and not covered by other teeth designated for other areas.
    This is not the case of this Granberg ripping chain. By design, the chain start with full rip chain and half of the cutters are ground to remove more than half of the cutter (the so called score cutters). The resultant partial cutter only cuts a portion of the kerf (outer edge) and leave the bulk of the work to the main cutters. Since this is a direct subset area of the full kerf, the main unmodified cutters require more load and responsibility that results in unbalanced cutting. The wear is dramatically increased on those main cutters. The workload is increased, and the vibration is also increased. The chain heats up more as a result. This can be easily seen as the dust that results from cutting. Whereas chips are produced from standard rip chain from Oregon.
    If the chain could be designed for each cutter to be of an isolated cutting area and balanced, it would be more like a skip chain. But skip chain is balanced. Since the cutters on chainsaw chain are of a “hook” style, there is no way to isolate difference cutting areas for individual cutters. They all have to have the same origin of the cutter to the chain or the outside of the kerf.
    This is NOT scoring in the traditional sense – say a panel saw scoring blade. in that case, the scoring blade is out front and “climb cuts” the fragile surface. Bottom line, is this Granberg rip chain misses the mark and Oregon or unmodified Carlton rip chain is far superior. Grandberg does produce best in class chainsaw mills.
