Straight Line Rip

Ripped-To-Width Hardwood Lumber
At Gutchess Lumber, our goal is to alleviate our customer’s pain points and improve their bottom line. One of the primary pain points we frequently hear about revolves around waste. This is the reason why we added an Eagle ripping machine to our Cortland, New York manufacturing facility. We have the ability to provide customers with both straight-line rip 1 edge capabilities (SL1E) as well as products ripped to specific widths (S4S). This machine provides customers with a true glue ready edge product that will help to save time and money, minimize waste as well as increase yield and profitability.
