When we first got our 039
we also got a ripping chain with a special adjustable guide that
connects to the chainsaw body. The guide helps to make even cuts when
you want to make planks from a tree.
I think we cut a total of 15
planks from a pine tree that were each about 2 feet long. They worked
good for our foot bridge, but the process was not easy.
We decided making our own
planks was a bit too complex for our skill level, but if you've got the
time and a remote location that makes delivery a challenge then maybe a
chainsaw mill is an option worth considering.
