Rip Saws | Bottom Cutting Straight Line Rip Saw

R18 | Bottom Cutting Straight Line Rip Saw

The Cantek R18 bottom cutting straight line ripsaw is designed with performance and added safety in mind.  Cutting from below forces the workpiece down on to the feed chain for superior hold down.  In addition the blade can project up above the workpiece to allow the gullet to clear the chips which leads to less heat buildup resulting in longer blade life and improved cut quality.  The R18 is capable of producing a glue joint cut up to 12 feet.  The user friendly floating fence allows the operator to easily line up the material for optimum yield resulting in greater efficiencies.   The powerful 20HP direct drive ensures optimum feed rates no matter what material or thickness you are cutting.
