    Definitely looks like it will cut a narrower kerf vs RS. Curious if it will be available in 3/8 as well or just .325

    Nice.

    Does it require a narrower bar?

    Well I'll be!!
    Stihl finally followed Oregon's lead and made a narrow kerf .325 chain. And to out do the 95VPX they made it a chisel also.

    Bout time Stihl fed us something new from the chain dept. For quite a while since PS came out all it seems they've done is appease the safety police. Plenty of added safety features for the homeowner & nothing for the pro user. I want to see high tooth chisel in .325-.404, but this'll do for the moment.

    I have several Stihl .325 RS chains. I don't think any of them are 35 degree.

    The RM semi chisel was 35° top plate, RS 30°.
    Didn't look to see if it still is.

    Probably a European # or something.
    Or not in the North American system yet.

    Some low profile .325 would be nice, 1/4" is darn expensive, fidley to deal with and not the best value considering how small the cutter lengths are. I like the Picco cutter, but its spaced to far apart for small bars 10-14". Low profile .325 would improve inherent downsides to Picco. I heard a while back maybe Oregon or Carlton were considering it. One problem chain co's have these days is all the Chinese chain everywhere at a fraction of the cost. It must be hurting their budgets.

    Glad they didn’t put those silly safety bumper links like they do on other brands .325 chain.
