Ps3 feels real smooth cutting. Tried the square one too. Wonderful in the small stuff. The chain will wad the chips up in the kerf and actually lift the chain in the cut.

I have a 026 that is ported with regular 3/8" X 16" that I use as a limbing saw. It is a sweetheart in that capacity.

:)    I like that set up!

stihlbro, did you run stock PS3 and PS back to back testing?  I have both and never tested the PS chain yet to the PS3 in back to back cuts and timed. or anyone else for that matter?

Only difference I see is the very little safety bumper on PS3.

Is that the Stihl small spline hub?
I have a brand new Stihl 8 Tooth Picco rim in small 7 spline, it's slightly larger in diameter then a standard 3/8 8T rim.
I can see this 261 running my Picco rim with the new PS3 Picco chisel chain in the small 8"X8"s.

I will bring home a PS3 chain tomorrow to try.


Good luck. In this area ps3 will not clear the chips fast enough.
If I find some time in the next few days I'll post some pics of a Picco chain build I did years ago for my carving saws, these new PS3 cutters would fit on it just nice.

I'm still looking for my old modified Picco chain, finally getting my new saw shop finished  just digging stuff out of storage.
I made a typo earlier meant to say PS [what Kevin sent me] not PS3.
Yes Kevin I will test that PS loop , just finishing up my treework bookings before we have 2 ft of snow on the ground, which will hang around until March :o
