The occurrence called “kickback” can cause serious or fatal injury. Always read the instruction manual carefully before using your saw. STIHL uses a green and yellow color-coding system to help you select a powerhead, bar and chain combination that complies with the kickback requirements of ANSI Standard B175.1 (gasoline-powered saws) and §30 of UL 1662/ ANSI Standard B175.1 (electric chainsaws). Ask your STIHL dealer about safe operating procedures and the advantages of the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake, STIHL Quickstop® Plus additional chain braking feature, STIHL reduced kickback bars and STIHL low-kickback saw chains.STIHL recommends the use of green reduced kickback bars and green low kickback chains on all STIHL chainsaws.* The actual listed guide bar length can vary from the effective cutting length based on which powerhead it is installed on.
⚠️ Note: STIHL recommends use of fuel with no more than 10% Ethanol content. Using fuel with greater than 10% Ethanol content may cause damage to your equipment and may void your STIHL warranty.
⚠️ WARNING!Improper use of any power tool may cause serious or fatal injury. Read, understand and follow carefully the operating and safety instructions in your instruction manual before using such products.
✔ Single humped drive to reduce kickbacks and vibration levels while cutting
STIHL RAPIDTM Super 3 is a low-kickback, low-vibration variant of STIHL RAPIDTM Super. The RS3 is a full-chisel, aggressive, fast-cutting chain with a single-humped driving link to avoid kickback and a cutter and tie strap design that lowers cutting vibration. The square-cornered cutter form with razor-edged edges ensures minimal chain friction for a smooth and clean cut in hard or frozen wood. Its cutting and plunge-cutting efficiency is good. RS3 chain cuts faster than RM chain, but it needs to be sharpened and maintained carefully to keep performing well.
The RS3 chain is suitable for felling, bucking, and limbing and is best suited for medium to high-powered chainsaws. It's a multi-purpose chain designed to meet the needs of full-time professionals.
Low-kickback, green-labeled chain is recommended by STIHL.
