Rated 5 out of 5 by Plunge Cutting Plus Having multiple friends of mine in my life take out pieces of their faces from kickback made me want to go with the low-kickback chain. Being that my saw came with this chain, I cannot compare it to other chains however this chain will cut as fast as my saw wants to cut. Plunge cuts (bore cuts), I have read frequently that you cant do it with a safety chain. BULL. Well let me tell you, I can plunge right through without a problem. Maybe this chain is a little slower but keep it sharp and you will never notice. June 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I can start it every time I am a 67 year old woman and cannot get my want to jobs done around our 27 acres. Got tired of please honey will you --- and got myself this lightweight easy start chainsaw. I love it and don't have to wait until he has time to do my jobs for me.Sometimes I have to go ask him if he is through with my chainsaw so I can use it.he loves it so much too. April 25, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good chain for beginner, but too slow cutting. This is the chain that comes standard on the majority of Stihl saws and was standard on my MS 250 and MS 290. It is a low kickback safety chain and is very good for a beginning wood cutter. The issue I have with it is that when the chain is very sharp it cuts fair, but after a few minutes it requires a lot of effort to push the saw into the wood to cut and it cuts very slow. This is after filing with both a filing jig and after having it filed at the Stihl dealer so inacurate filing is not the issue. The low kickback feature is nice, but the slow cut makes cutting firewood a long process. February 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great all-purpose chain! This chain came on my MS 271. It has been in use for about a year now cutting dirty, moss-covered, frozen, rotten wood and lots of firewood. The chain only requires an occasional hand filing and is back to throwing chips like new. After a year, the cutters are still about 95%. It should last a long time at this rate (and I bought 3 more spares!) Well worth the extra few dollars over the chain most other manufacturers use. It seems to be sharper right out of the box than other brands as well. Compare STIHL chain with other brands and you can see the extra effort put into making them. December 18, 2012
