Oregon has announced the launch of SpeedCut, the next generation narrow kerf bar and chain cutting system. 

“Professionals have trusted Oregon’s guide bars and saw chain for nearly 70 years, but we’re always looking for new ways to offer an even better cutting experience. We designed every aspect of the SpeedCut System with the end user in mind,” said Derek Vlcko, director of product marketing for Oregon forestry products. “Designed to meet the demands of professional users, the lighter and faster SpeedCut System helps our customers accomplish more on the job.” 

The SpeedCut System combines Oregon’s new .325-inch pitch narrow kerf saw chain and SpeedCut laminated guide bars. The new SpeedCut narrow kerf saw chain offers higher cutting efficiency and durability due to a redesigned cutter shape. Oregon’s precision grind technology ensures the SpeedCut saw chain is sharp and ready right out of the box, and it’s designed to cut 10 percent faster than Oregon’s top-performing narrow kerf .325-inch pitch saw chain. For more uptime, the saw chain’s cutting surfaces have been engineered to stay sharper longer, with an easy-to-file cutting surface.

The SpeedCut guide bar offers unmatched rigidity and control. Built using aerospace bonding technology, the guide bar is designed to be stiffer and stronger than Oregon’s other lightweight products. An aluminum core reduces weight up to 20 percent, for easy handling with less effort. The SpeedCut guide bar’s redesigned nose and hardened bar rails enhance overall durability and strength. 

Available in 2016, the SpeedCut System can be purchased together in a guide bar and saw chain combo pack, and will be available in four lengths: 13-inch, 15-inch, 16-inch and 18-inch. The SpeedCut guide bars and saw chain can also be purchased on their own. The guide bar family will be available in five lengths, from 13 inches up to 20 inches. SpeedCut saw chains can be purchased in a variety of loop lengths or in bulk reels at authorized dealers. A narrow kerf icon on product packaging helps customers easily identify guide bar and saw chain compatibility.

The Oregon SpeedCut System, guide bars and saw chain are available at Oregon authorized dealers nationwide. To learn more about the Oregon SpeedCut and locate a dealer, visit OregonProducts.com/SpeedCut.
