OILOMATIC® STIHL RAPID™ Duro (RD)
The STIHL RAPID™ Duro saw chain features standard-sized cutters with carbide tips, staying sharp up to four times longer than standard chains. The RD is extremely durable and produces very good results in all types of wood. It is especially suited for cutting dirty wood, treated wood, roots and hardwoods, which would quickly dull conventional chains. This chain must be re-sharpened with a formed diamond grinding wheel.
Applications: The RD chain is especially suited for cutting dirty wood, treated wood, roots and hardwoods.
STIHL recommends using low-kickback, green-labeled chain and green-labeled reduced-kickback bars on all powerheads.
