will the Stihl rsc3 325 .50 work on my 346 xp
Stihl does not list RSC3 as being available in .325" pitch.
I may have mistaken on rsc its got the yellow tab not a safety chain
But will 325 .50 work
It will fit if.........
If your rim is .325 and your bar is .50. Check the link count too...
Most 346xp's come with narrow kerf b&c. I believe husky refers to them as Pixel chains. I think that Narrow kerf bar's & chains have to be used together. You might have to purchase a standard bar if you want to use .325 RS. Lift the chain out of the groove to see the number on the driver. If it has an H -then 2 digits, visit husqvarna website and the bar & chain fitup chart will tell you if it's narrow kerf or not. If if just has 2 digits, visit oregonchain.com and look there.
What you really want is RSC, not RSC3 - and RSC is availiable in .325...
OILOMATIC® STIHL RAPID™ Super Comfort (RSC)
STIHL RAPID™ Super Comfort is the reduced vibration version of STIHL RAPID™ Super. A redesigned cutter and tie strap design reduces vibration levels significantly while still utilizing the aggressive full chisel cutter design. RSC offers the same cutting characteristics to STIHL RAPID™ Super with much lower vibration levels.

I'm using Sthil RMC, .325,50ga yellow tab on a 346 and its cutting great.
thats what i got did the .50 work on yours ok?
The chain is turning good, it's been on the saw for the past 5 weeks. I'm running a Husky bar, 66dl.
What going on with your 346 set up?
Husky has both NK (pixel) and "normal" .050 .325 bars in the US, but I believe a "normal" ,325 chain will work on both, with somewhat reduced support on the NK bar - but not the other way around, except when the NK chain is pretty new.
Thanks guys i sure hope it works its a great looking chain It looks alot better than the oregon 95 v on it
Yes Stan, it wil work fine!!!! As long as the gauge and pitch are the same, then worry about the DL count. There isn't any difference between manufactures sizes on chain.
Andy i'm not sure my bar ir .50 or .58 i had a brain fart other day and bought a .50
It will still work fine, just wear the bar a little faster. .050 to .058 when .007 is the thickness of the average human hair, nuff said?
Hell, I've got a 16' wide shear at work, I was patting myself on the back becase I got it to cut within .010 all the way across!
My Shindaiwa came with .325 NK bar in .050 gauge and 23RS and 20NK work equally well. So it should work on your Husqvarna just fine.
thanks guys and Andy you do need a 395XP
