RumberŪ Board Cutting Tips

Obtain a good quality circular saw ripping blade with 24 carbide tipped large teeth.  The saw kerf is normally 1/8".  Have your professional saw sharpener widen the kerf to 1/4".  This usually makes cutting Rumber Boards much easier by cutting a wider path.  Always wear glasses and safety equipment when using power saws.

NOTE: The manufacturers warranty applies only to livestock trailers.  Any installation outside these guidelines is entirely at the risk of the installer and voids the manufacturers livestock trailer flooring warranty.
