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
Rated 5 out of 5 by The only chain to use for difficult wood. This is the only chain I recommend for cutting difficult wood. I have been cutting for 24 years into hard, dry, and sometimes frozen red oak. The toughest wood to cut in the upper midwest, bar none. (also the best firewood!). The Rapid Super cuts it like butter, making large consistent chips. Lesser aggressive chains just make sawdust & take forever to to finish a cut. Best of all, it is resharpenable and lasts a long time. I sharpen with hand files. I use RS chain on my Stihl MS460 for felling and bucking, and on my Stihl 026 for branching. I use PM chain on my Stihl 018 for light limbing work. April 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Chain for Experienced Users I've been running RS chain on my old 041 for 20 years. It cuts extremely fast .It throws large chips, not sawdust like lesser chains. I would not recommend using it on saws less than 3 H.P. It's just too aggressive for lower power saws. Sharpening should be left to those who have the proper equipment and knowledge of square tooth, chisel chain. I've been selling and servicing Stihl products since 1987 and I recommend this chain to all my commercial customers.. March 27, 2014
