STIHL RAPID™ Micro™ Full Skip is the skip pattern version of STIHL RAPID™ Micro™. There are two tie straps between every two cutting teeth, allowing better chip discharge and higher chain speed.

Product Description

STIHL RAPID™ Micro™ Full Skip is the full-skip pattern version of STIHL RAPID™ Micro™. It is a taller-profile chain with more mass than STIHL PICCO™ chain and is ideal for larger displacement engines. Full-skip saw chain has an extra drive link and tie straps between each cutter, allowing better chip discharge and higher chain speed. Skip chains meet the needs of various operating situations, such as long bars used on large diameter logs, but can be used on short bars as well. Since there aren’t as many cutters as RM chain, RMF chain reduces the amount of time needed for sharpening.

Applications: The RMF 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, but it is also suitable for homeowner use.

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

OILOMATIC® STIHL RAPID™ Micro™ Full Skip (RMF) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fewer Teeth made me Smile In the long term yard project we have going I was looking for a chain to cut some long ago fallen hardwood. I didn’t want to run the full chisel due to the mud, dirt, sand and junk the trees were saturated with and my dealer happen to have a 33RMF-84 in the back so I picked it up for the job. The skip tooth is great for keeping chain speed up and for chip ejection. The semi-chisel is great for keeping a sharp cutting edge while dealing with he abrasive junk in the wood. The chain stayed plenty sharp and I just made a few passes with my 2-in-1 to maintain a razor edge while refueling. I’m impressed with the performance in some pretty sketchy wood and would recommend it for a similar job if you can find it, especially if you are running a tall spur gear, a longer bar and/or running a smaller motor in your saw to keep the speed higher and out more cutters through the wood in a given time. Good product! I have yet to be disappointed by a Stihl hello link chain, and this is no exception!
