Specialised ripping chain from Panther this Full Skip chain has x1 extra gap between each pair of teeth. This helps keep chain speed higher when using a longer bar with a longer saw. This gives a smooth even feel to milling timber.


  • P stands for Panther
  • 325  = self explanatory – it is 325 chain
  • 063 = gauge of chain is .063[1.6mm]
  • FSR = Full Skip Ripping [as in Ripping Chain]


‘A skip chain has fewer cutting teeth than a conventional chain which means it won’t be dragging as many teeth through the wood you’re cutting. Less drag on the chain means less power is needed to cut through the log. That means the motor on your saw runs faster which keeps it in a more efficient power curve. It’s the same principle you use when downshifting a transmission in your truck to go up a steep grade. You get more power by increasing the engine speed. ‘ Steven Gregersen USA

  • Milling is smoother and more forgiving
  • Longer bars can be used with smaller powerheads as the strain on the powerhead is reduced
  • Less teeth to sharpen


  • There are fewer teeth but correct sharpening procedure becomes even more important

‘Which is the best ripping chain – the Granberg? The Stihl RCX? or the….’

Horses for courses – there is no ‘best’ same as there is no ‘best’ car, or ‘best’ golf ball etc etc. There is only what’s best for you! So if in doubt – buy different brand chains and different makes and find out what works best for yourself.

Panther Ripping Chain - does the job well

Well pleased with the ripping chain - just what I wanted to prepare wood for storage for bowl turning

Rutger Emmelkamp
Surprisingly simple and good

Best birthday present ever! Never worked with something like this before but it only took me 20 minutes to assemble and within the hour I had ‘planked’ a larch tree log! I bought a ripping chain just to be sure. Really a very smooth experience. Can’t wait to cut all the wood for raised beds, shed, garden benches and I’m thinking to build a watch tower now too.
