Rated 5 out of 5 by i own five stihl chainsaws I have ran the safety chains and full comp chains. but as soon as I figure out that I could buy a chain that cut faster and sharpen faster because there less teeth to sharpen. I honestly don't think I would buy a stihl saw that you could not a skip chain. my oldest saw is ten or so years old a ms 310 and still has the orginal bar. I have ran other skip chains but the stihl chain run the coldest on the bar. March 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast Cutting on Long Guide Bars Skip and square cutter chain from stihl is just flat out awesome. The RSF chain is perfect on long bars in hard wood. You really don't get any benefit on short bars. Full comp chain cuts much fast until you start using longer guide bars. I use this chain on the ms 362 with 25 inch guide all the time. Now if I was using a 20 inch guide bar I would stick with the RSC chain. When using a longer bar saw dust and dirt get trapped in the chain. When that happens the chain can not discharge it fast enough. Skip chain does a much better job in these situations. Also since there is about 33% less cutters it does allow the engine rpms to stay much higher. Which in turn does make it faster cutting with longer bars. Not to mention it takes less time to touch it up when your out in the woods or in the field working. November 24, 2013
