Certainly among the toughest and most powerful residential-use chainsaws around, Efco’s MT 4100 S is designed for discerning home users who need a power tool suitable for tasks such as lopping, pruning, cutting small-medium diameter trees, and chopping up firewood; i.e., pretty much everything that might need chopping or cutting around the home and garden. Not only, however, is the MT 4100 S very good at cutting all sorts of things, it is also reassuringly tough and easy to use, so very much the perfect machine for even the most dedicated home gardener.
Equipped as standard with a sturdy 41cm (16”) guide bar and a 3/8” x .050” (pitch x gauge) chain, the MT 4100 S makes cutting even the toughest tree branches pleasingly effortless. This is in large part due to the impressive power provided by the MT 4100 S’s 39.0cc two-stroke petrol engine, which features a clever ‘Burn Right’ system to help ensure optimal performance. This system works by enhancing the combustion process, which simultaneously reduces fuel demands and decreases particle emissions for incredible efficiency compared to standard two-stroke engines.
Part of Efco’s ‘Home Plus’ range, ease of operation is another of the MT 4100 S’s many virtues. An easy to use recoil starter system, a primer bulb and an electronically controlled digital coil, for example, each help to ensure quick, hassle-free ignition, thus saving time and effort from the moment you begin working. A lightweight (only 4.2kg) and compact design, moreover, means that the MT 4100 S handles brilliantly and is very portable, thereby allowing you to achieve a more accurate cut and preventing strain over extended periods of operation. And with a single multifunction lever (incorporating on-off, half-throttle and choke control devices) also included as standard, using the MT 4100 S is an agreeably intuitive experience.
Given this fantastic combination of power and convenience you will likely come to consider your MT 4100 S chainsaw with great affection, thinking of it more as a dependable companion than merely a tool. It is a happy coincidence then (or perhaps part of Efco’s masterful design philosophy) that the MT 4100 S is also incredibly durable and built with only the highest quality components (including a two-ring piston, a nickel engine cylinder, and a forged steel connecting rod and crankshaft), so you can rest completely assured of years of outstanding service.
