Rated 1 out of 5 by Carbide tips break off no apparent reason like the other review As the previous review from the other fellow mentioned, I never seemed to dull the blade and suddenly it just stopped cutting well. Upon close inspection, about 80% of the carbide tips were missing. Didn't hit anything etc... Put my backup regular blade on the saw and it cut right through where I had to stop with the carbide blade.DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS! May 6, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by carbide vs ice in wood ICE wins I had got the RD3 in a 3/8 0.50 20 inch for my 441 pro, this chain blows through dirty wood and alot of it no problem I do give it that. I was never able to get to a point where it got dull because it broke on me while cutting a piece of wood. It appears that i hit a spot of ice in the wood and it tore most of the carbide tips off the chain. I have no other explination, there was nothing else in the wood but ice. I would steer clear of any carbide chain, hit anything hard, its gone and junk. With a normal chain, at lest there is something there to re-sharpen and re-use. I only got about 3 hours of use out of this chain and 3 hours is not worth that kind of money. January 23, 2015
