OILOMATIC® STIHL PICCO™ Super 3 (PS3)
PS3 OILOMATIC® STIHL PICCO™ Super 3 has improved cutting and boring efficiency with less feed force and has a 15% longer cutting life when compared to the PM3 saw chain.

Product Description

STIHL PICCO™ Super 3 is a low-profile, low-kickback saw chain. The razor-edged, square-cornered cutter shape ensures minimum chain friction for an exceptionally smooth and clean cut in hard or frozen wood. Considered a high-performance cutting chain, it has improved cutting and boring efficiency with less feed force and has a 15% longer cutting life when compared to the PM3 saw chain.

Applications: PS3 chain is ideal for chainsaws with less than 1.5 kW (2.0 bhp). It is for use by those with extraordinary cutting needs such as professionals or those with professional experience, expertise and/or knowledge.

STIHL recommends using low-kickback, green-labeled chain and green-labeled reduced-kickback bars on all powerheads.

WARNING! The occurrence called “kickback” can cause serious or fatal injury. Always read the instruction manual carefully before using your saw.

Ask your STIHL dealer about safe operating procedures and the advantages of the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake, STIHL Quickstop® Plus (Q) 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Cutting and Long Lasting I can't say enough about this chain. The PS3 chain has been on my in the tree saw for 3 months now. I am saying one chain for 3 months with no touch up of any kind. One of my ground guys used the saw and put it in the dirt a bit. I was super surprised that it was still as sharp as it was. That was sometime in month 2. I have been cutting in ash, maple, red oak, and beech. Just to name a few. I know I should have at least ran a file over it before now but, I just wanted to see how much wood I could truly cut before it stopped throwing chips. So it lasted 3 months doing commercial tree work. It needs to be sharpened now. Boring smoothness is unreal. This chain sure has saved me a lot of money and time! Its probably the best small saw chain on the market today.
