STIHL RAPID™ Super 3 is a reduced-vibration and low-kickback version of STIHL RAPID™ Super. RS3 is an aggressive, fast-cutting, full-chisel chain but has a single-humped drive link to reduce kickback, and the cutter and tie strap design reduces vibration levels when cutting. The razor-edged, square-cornered cutter shape ensures minimum chain friction for an exceptionally smooth and clean cut in hard or frozen wood. It offers excellent cutting and plunge-cutting efficiency. RS3 chain typically cuts faster than RM chain, but requires careful sharpening and maintenance to continue to perform well.
Applications: Best suited for medium to high-powered chainsaws, the RS3 chain is ideal for felling, bucking and limbing. It is a general-purpose chain for the high demands of full-time professionals.
STIHL recommends using low-kickback, green-labeled chain and green-labeled reduced-kickback bars on all powerheads.
