STIHL PICCO™ Micro™ 3 chain is a low-kickback, narrow kerf, smooth-cutting and low-profile chain ideal for small to mid-sized chainsaws with between 1.5 kW (2.0 bhp) and 1.9 kW (2.5 bhp). It performs equally well as compared to the PMM3 chain, with the only difference being a slight increase in weight. This semi-chisel chain does not usually get dull as fast as full-chisel chain in normal use and is easier to maintain and sharpen.
Applications: The PM3 chain is ideal for small branches, general cleanup and maintenance around the home or farm. Professionals requiring plunge-cutting should use this chain as well.
STIHL recommends using low-kickback, green-labeled chain and green-labeled reduced-kickback bars on all powerheads.
