Plastic sprockets in sawmills are a tested and valuable solution that reduces wear on chain and equipment while also reducing noise and downtime. Plastic sprockets come in several types including “Snap-it”, mill chain, drive andsprocket-closed traditional bolt-on or split. Snap-it sprockets are the cheapest and are very easy to install, a video can be found here. However, snap-it sprockets are only appropriate for idler applications. Snap-its (and our split sprockets) function with H-78, H-130, C-188 and 81X chains.

Split sprockets can handle drive applications are are made of robust Redco™ 750 urethane. One of the hardest and most popular urethanes, 750 is an ideal sprocket material.
