    great chain
    I purchased this even though the cost was about double that of a regular chain, because I assume I would not have to sharpen it or touch it up so often. I cut my own fire wood from a 40 acre plot and try to keep up with the dead and fallen trees. This chain lives up to what I expected, cutting elm, oak, ash and poplar, it really does stay sharp and cuts smooth and easy with no kick back issues. Cutting is a breeze and I am now thinking I will not have to sharpen this thing until I finish all my ... read more fall cutting, maybe not even then. It still feels as sharp now as the day I put it on. Really like this chain!

    Expensive....BUT well worth the money!
    I have at a minimum,150-175 saw chains for my 27 STIHL chainsaws! I usually buy 4-5 new chains with each saw I purchase. Recently, my Dealer talked me into trying these carbide chains on my new saws. I made the right decision and now have all my new saws outfitted with carbides! I like to cut wood and the downtime you have with sharpening every couple of tankfuls takes away from my time with the saw. After the shock wears off over the price, you won't be disappointed!

    This is the chain for heavy use
    If you use your saw a lot ( a lot of cutting) This chain is for you. Very long use before sharpening. Just beware of the possibility of harder kick back.
