Nowadays, the wood cutting process looks like a technological scheme consisting of several connected and relatively inseparable parts. The crosscutting wood is the most widespread in the process of fo­rest exploitation; it is used at tree exploitation, shortening stems and assortment production. The article deals with the influence of the cutting edge geometry of circular saws on the torque and also on the cutting performance at the crosscutting wood therefore there is the influence on the whole cutting process. In the article there is described detailed measurement procedure, used measuring devices and the process of results analysis. Knowledge of wood crosscutting process and choice of suitable cutting conditions and cutting tools will contribute to decrease production costs and energy saving.
