STIHL RAPID™ Micro™ 3 is the low-kickback version of STIHL RAPID™ Micro™ saw chain. RM3 retains all the performance of STIHL RM chain, with the added benefit of low kickback to reduce the risk of kickback injury. It is a taller-profile chain with more mass for chainsaws with larger displacement engines. Featuring a semi-chisel type of cutter, it typically doesn’t get dull as fast as a full-chisel chain during normal use, making it easier to maintain. Applications: The RM3 chain is ideal for felling, bucking and limbing. It is a general-purpose chain for the high demands of full-time professionals in agriculture, construction and the forestry industry. It is also suitable for nonprofessional users working under similar conditions. STIHL recommends using low-kickback, green-labeled chain and green-labeled reduced-kickback bars on all powerheads. This chain typically comes in 16, 18 and 20 inch lengths, and would fit Stihl saws such as 026, MS 250, MS 261, MS 290, MS 271, and MS291. Unsure which type of saw chain you need?
