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 powerful 20HP direct drive ensures optimum feed rates no matter what material or thickness you are cutting.
