Rated 5 out of 5 by terrific all purpose chain I bought this chain to replace the green safety chain that came with my Stihl 291 saw. It is the 26RM74 for use with my 18" bar.When I first used my saw with the safety chain it cut very well-just a bit slow. At the time we were cutting fallen oak. For comparison, I switched to this yellow RM chain and the difference was immediately apparent. The RM chain was much more aggressive. I'm still using the original bar, which is a Rollamatic E bar (green). The chain is easy to sharpen and maintain.I am not a lumberjack by any means but I usually cut with a friend who typically cuts 10 to 12 cords a year. He tried my saw with both of the chains and he also thought the difference was significant. In not so many words, he basically told me to throw the green chain away. Of course I will not. Instead, I keep the green chain as a spare.Stihl's website warns users that the yellow chains have a higher potential for kickback but I have had no such issues. Again, I'm still using the green safety bar so perhaps that is one of the reasons I've had no issues with kickback.That's about it. The RM chain works very well and is easy to sharpen.Wilkie December 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Probably my favorite chain for my 026 Pro I swapped the .325 pitch chain on my 026 Pro to run 3/8 so that I was using the same chains as my larger saw. I love the 026 but it's right at the bottom of the power range to pull a 3/8, so the chain really makes a difference. I've used several different chains from Stihl & Oregon, and this one seems to work the best for me. As long as I'm not too impatient, it cuts well and sharpens easily. For reference, I'm NOT a tree professional. I typically drop & cut between 15-40 trees a year and file by hand with a standard file guide. June 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good all-purpose chain Great for frozen, dead and/or dirty oak. Has no problems on other types of wood though either, just excels when you're in hardwoods in my opinion. Takes a bigger bite than RM3(safety chain). April 1, 2013
