Rated 3 out of 5 by Good cutting chain but needs more durability I have 3 of these chains for my 391 ovetall they're a fairly decent chain they cut fairly fast however I'm disappointed in how often I have to either file the chain or take it down and have it professionally sharpened I can fall a 30 ft tree limb it and buck about half of it before I have to get the file out. Just purchased another one today being in a jam to cut a few wood disks for a wedding and after about 30 cuts I had to get the file out and file the cutters. Overall if you're good with a file and don't mind filing the chain often it's a good chain but if you aren't comfortable with a file I'd recommend getting a different chain. April 13, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by chains don't last The stihl saws are very good running saws but the stihl chain is horrible for some one that uses them a lot they stretch so bad that after just a few uses the are way to big for the saw I have used saws all my life at home and commercial I would not recommend stihl chains to anyone January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nothing better This chain will cut anything. Including rocks as I have done this also!. The oak and cedar in central Texas will rival any for how hard and abrasive they are. You have to sharpen your normal chain every 20 minutes of cutting time. I can now cut 25 to 30- 42in. diameter oaks before the chain needs sharpening. When sharpening is necessary I have my local Stihl retailer send the chains back to Stihl, where they are sharpened and cutters replaced if needed. My 20 and 25 inch Rapid Duro chains are the best money I have ever spent on any brand of saw chains. March 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rapid Duro Carbide This blade runs for so long you are going to think its sharpening itself ! The only downfall is the high price of the diamond wheel necessary for sharpening. I would say that Stihl has very modestly rated the sharpening life of the blade at 4x but ive found it to be 9 to 11x times compared to the standard hardened steel. February 23, 2013
