Benefits of a McDonough 54-inch Center Split Resaw

  • The heaviest weldment frame offered in this market, designed for accuracy and strength.

  • Exclusive McDonough Air Strain is the simplest, most effective system to increase feed speeds and minimize mis-cut lumber.

  • Cartridge Type Pressure Guide System assists in faster feed speeds and increased accuracy. Guide block dressing machine to resurface guides is included with each machine.

  • Cast Iron Wheels. Preferred by saw filers because they prevent saw blades from getting hot and loosing tension, unlike steel wheels.
