Rated 3 out of 5 by Hope quality control gets better I have been using this saw chain for the past 3 years most of them have been really good but the last one I bought was not cutting very well right out of the box it was sharp but did not bite very well I will buy another one but if I get another one like that I will switch brands brands February 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A man's saw. I have the Stihl 660 with a 32 inch bar. Unbelievable power and cutting speed on trees the bar doesn't reach all the way across. Good for limbing too; you don't have to bend over with a 32 inch reach. So far, no problems with kick back with the chisel chain. However, I plan to put a new full skip chain on it soon.I gave my son a 440 magnum for cutting fire wood. He's had it 8 years and cuts fire wood every year and uses it as needed in the mean time. It has given him no trouble. I was using it several years ago over water. Accidently dropped it in about a foot of water. Took it home, removed the spark plug and pulled the starter rope to blow out the water. I replaced the plug and was amazed that it started; didn't seem to hurt it at all. I was thankful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Pro Saw Chain available. I've used most Saw Chain . Out the box super Sharpe you could probley shave with it . Cut 2 Truck loads of moss covers Loctus Logs so far and a light dig in the dirt. Still razor sharp . No touch up needed at this time. Respect this chain . At high RPM it can have a wickad kick back. But what got was getting complacent . While carrying the saw I raked my arm across it . It told me how sharp it was quick. It cuts Hardwood like butter. You don't have to mussle this chain with then spike . If you have to it's dull so stop and sharpen it or change to a spare. At the right dealer this Saw Chain is very affordable. December 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best chain on the market… but would buy other Stihl chains Burned through 25ft in 3/8's of this on my MS 460's and 660 and 404 for my 880 it beats everything I've ever used.Keep it out of the dirt and sharpen it in a vice when you get it home.Get a bar length for your 460/660 that with your knees slightly bent keeps the tip a 1/2 inch off the ground, you shouldn't hit anything, and almost never bend over ... check the ground for rocks before you fell. happy day's October 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible performing chain Best chain for your money for cutting mixed hard and soft wood fast cut little to no chatter really holds a edge if you keep it out of the dirt December 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEST CHAIN PERIOD. This chain is one of the greatest investments I have bought for my company. However, this chain IS NOT for beginners. This chain cuts so fast. No pressure is needed for the saw. The weight of the bar and chain do the cutting. I wont buy another chain unless it's this one. September 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great on the MS270 I've run this particular chain on several of my larger saws in the past, and recently I slapped this chain onto my MS270, and it works incredibly well. I don't even push into cuts with this chain - just put it on top of the wood, and squeeze the throttle - it chews right through everything I've tried it on, including red oak and silver maple of about 12-14" diameter, and I can sharpen it with a regular round file when in the field. VERY fast, aggressive cutting saw chain. August 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Many moons ago, I bought a MS034. It is a 3.45 cu in saw. The dealer sold me an RM chain. Dealer said that there really wasn't my difference between the RM and the RS. I always cursed the saw as it barely cut. I had and old mac610 that out cut the Stihl saw. Eventually, I wore out the chain and brought an RS chain replacement. What a world of difference. You have to respect the dangerous nature of what you are working with. I always wear my chaps, eye and ear protection, and love my Stihl saws, with the proper chains. I also always machine sharpen my chains. May 22, 2014
