STIHL RAPID™ Micro™ carving chain features an extremely smooth-cutting semi-chisel type of cutter. Its special shape reduces friction to a minimum, ensuring fast cutting speed with good efficiency in any type of wood. This special carving chain is more forgiving in dirty conditions than full chisel (RS) chain types due to its cutter shape. And plunge cutting speed on a carving bar is double that of standard ¼” chain due to its shortened top plate.
Applications: The RMS chain is recommended for carving applications, pole pruners, and battery-powered chainsaws.
STIHL recommends using low-kickback, green-labeled chain and green-labeled reduced-kickback bars on all powerheads.
