As far as product names go, Efco’s MT 3700 ‘Power Sharp’ is a good one as it immediately draws attention to two of the most important qualities of any effective chainsaw; that of being both powerful and sharp. The standard MT 3700 is already pretty impressive in this respect, happily capable of efficiently chopping firewood and pruning tough tree branches, but the MT 3700 ‘Power Sharp’ offers the additional cutting power and convenience of being fitted with one of Efco’s incredible 16” ‘Power Sharp’ guide bars. This outstanding machine is therefore ideal for even the most dedicated home user faced with larger quantities of tough cutting work.
This is largely due to Efco’s innovative ‘Power Sharp’ self-sharpening system. Fitted as standard with a sturdy 41cm (16”) ‘Power Sharp’ bar and a special 3/8” x .050” (pitch x gauge) chain, the MT 3700 ‘Power Sharp’ also comes with a sharpening stone which allows the chain to be sharpened in just five seconds without the use of tools; simply attach the sharpening stone device to the guide bar and operate the chainsaw at maximum speed, pressing the foot of the device hard against a solid object for several seconds. Once this is done you can set right back to work, thus saving significant time and effort compared to manual sharpening, while the inclusion of an automatic oil pump helps to further ensure optimal cutting performance at all times.
Powered by a hardworking 35.2cc two-stroke petrol engine, featuring ‘Burn Right’ technology for reduced particle emissions, increased fuel economy and optimised combustion, the MT 3700 ‘Power Sharp’ is therefore ideal for taking on even the most demanding cutting work around the home and garden, including cutting and snedding small to medium-sized trees. However, as it is part of Efco’s ‘Home Plus’ range and designed specifically for home users, this exceptional chainsaw is also reassuringly easy to use. In addition to the auto-sharpening system, for example, the MT 3700 is also fitted with an easy to use recoil starter and an electronically controlled digital coil to help ensure quick, hassle-free ignition every time, while the inclusion of a single multifunction lever incorporating on-off, half-throttle and choke control devices further enhances ease of operation. Even the lightweight (only 4.1kg) and compact build of the MT 3700 ‘Power Sharp’ helps in this regard, making it pleasingly portable and brilliantly easy to handle.
Last, but not least, is that the MT 3700 ‘Power Sharp’ is also remarkably tough, with Efco using only the best components available in its construction, including a two-ring piston, a nickel engine cylinder, and a forged steel connecting rod and crankshaft. This makes the MT 3700 ‘Power Sharp’ reassuringly durable, and ensures a long and reliable service life for even the most dedicated user.
