Rated 4 out of 5 by from fast! I use this chain to do all my bucking. it throws the chips and cuts very fast with minimal effort. i have had it jam the roller and bar with woodchips, (ms291 18"), and it is definitely a more dangerous chain. i use a less aggressive chain for felling and limbing, its more safe making awkward cuts and saves the edge on the fast chain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Job done quickly Had A huge tree that came down during a wind storm. Started to cut it up with a different type chain. Bought the RS chain And it made world of differece in getting the job done. The chain cut through the tree like butter. It bore cut easy and shorten the time that it would have taken with the other chain

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best chains I own The RS chain is a great chain for bore cutting and cutting down trees. Chain keeps a great edge as long as you keep it out of the dirt. I cut up 3 white ash trees still holding a great edge, just like how I got it out of the box. I'm running this chain on a ms261 and a ms271 I would not put it on a smaller saw. These chains are aggressive and I strongly recommend always wearing your proper PPE, this chain will kick back if you're not paying attention. I recommend for experienced users.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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
