Efco MT 3500 S Petrol Chainsaw – 35cm Bar

  • Product Details

    A chainsaw can be a tricky piece of kit, with its operation sometimes a little intimidating to the uninitiated. Nevertheless, a chainsaw is also a pretty handy thing to have around and any homeowner who regularly has to cut firewood or prune tough tree branches will undoubtedly appreciate the time and effort that such a machine can save. Thus, what we need is a chainsaw that combines magnificent cutting power and outstanding user-friendliness; part of Efco’s ‘Home Plus’ range, the MT 3500 S is a petrol powered chainsaw which does exactly this, offering both reliably excellent performance and reassuring ease of use.

    Power is supplied via a reliable 38.9cc two-stroke petrol engine featuring a clever design which reduces noise levels and the emission of unburned hydrocarbonsfor added user convenience, with a transparent 0.36 litre fuel tank also included to help you keep track of fuel levels. An easy access starter cord and primer bulb, meanwhile, means that getting the MT 3500 S up and running is always pleasingly simple. Moreover, with illustrated step-by-step start up instructions printed on the machine housing even the most inexperienced user can be assured of quick, safe and hassle-free starting.

    This power is channelled into the MT 3500 S’s cutting system, with a sturdy 35cm (14”) bar and a potent 3/8” x .050” (pitch x gauge) chain fitted as standard. This provides more than enough clout to tackle the vast majority of residential cutting work with ease, thus making small pruning jobs and cutting small to medium diameter tree trunks or firewood nigh on effortless. Compact, lightweight (only 4.4kg) and ergonomically designed, the MT 3500 S is also remarkably easy to handle and provides an agreeably precise cut, with specially designed handles ensuring a secure grip and an effective three-spring anti-vibration system providing a little extra comfort during operation.

    Built to last, Efco’s MT 3500 S also features a variety of high grade features more commonly seen on significantly more expensive machines. The automatic oil pump, for example, ensures smooth running performance and prevents troublesome oil leaks when the engine is idling, while an on-board clutch with drum and brake belt in the crankcase prevents foreign matter from getting between the centrifugal weights, thereby ensuring optimal performance and facilitating removal of the chain guard. Few other machines, then, can offer such an impressive amalgamation of simplicity, ease of operation and dependably impressive performance, making the MT 3500 S a great introduction to the world of petrol powered chainsaws.

    About Efco
    Giacomo Ferretti set the foundations of the Efco brand on the road to success back in 1978, spotting an opportunity to satisfy an Italian market beginning to demand high quality outdoor power tools. He responded by producing Efco lawnmowers, brush cutters, and chainsaws. Due to the high quality of the machinery made, the manufacturing of these products soon developed an enviable reputation amongst forestry and agricultural workers, users that demanded the best performance possible from their equipment. Sales of Efco lawnmowers began to soar during the intervening years and the Efco brand is now internationally recognised as a leader in the field of garden machinery manufacturing.

    They take their role very seriously though, and were the first company in this sector to achieve official certification in three crucial areas of business sustainability: the ISO 9001:2008 certification for quality in 1996, the SA 8000:2008 certificate for ethical processes of production in 2006 and the ISO 14001:2004, recognising Efco's efforts to reduce their impact on the environment with an ongoing commitment to become Carbon Neutral starting in 2010.
