Nowadays, the wood cutting process looks like a technological scheme consisting of several connected and relatively inseparable parts. Wood crosscutting is the most widespread operation 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 wood crosscutting, therefore there is an influence on the whole cutting process. In the present article measurement procedure, used measuring devices and the process of result analysis are described in detailed. Knowledge of the wood crosscutting process and choice of suitable cutting conditions and cutting tools will contribute to a reduction in production costs and to energy saving.Keywords:
