Efco MT 6500 Petrol Chainsaw – 51cm Bar

  • Product Details

    Efco’s superb MT 6500 20” heavy duty chainsaw is very much the tank of Efco’s chainsaw range; i.e., the big, tough machine you send into situations which would quickly make any lesser apparatus beg for mercy. This is because the MT 6500 has been specifically designed to excel when faced with the most demanding and prolonged jobs in difficult environmental conditions. Thus, whether you are working in hot dusty conditions or in the depths of an icy winter, the MT 6500 is the machine to go for if what you need is robustness and reliability.

    We will first focus on the matter of toughness, as it is therein which the MT 6500 stands out from the crowd. An aluminium crankcase, for example, offers maximum strength and constant efficiency even with the longest guide bars installed, while the engine cylinder and two-ringed piston have been designed to withstand intensive use over longer periods of time. Inside the crankcase, meanwhile, an on-board clutch with drum and brake belt prevent foreign matter from getting between the centrifugal weights, thereby ensuring consistently superb operation and facilitating removal of the chain guard. An extra large engine filter, moreover, further ensures long lasting and reliable performance by providing vital protection for the engine when working in dusty environments.

    Equipped as standard with a strapping 51cm (20”) guide bar and a 3/8” x .058” (pitch x gauge) chain, the MT 6500 is at least as powerful as it is tough and happily capable of felling, snedding and cutting up even fairly large trees (with a recommended maximum cutting diameter of 45cm-48cm). To ensure optimal performance at all times, furthermore, the MT 6500 also features a side-mounted lateral tensioner screw to allow quick and efficient tightening of the chain prior to operation, while the automatic oil pump (made from durable aluminium to help ensure dependability) can also be adjusted to suit the working conditions and bar/chain combination currently at hand.

    As well as providing smooth running and reliable power the MT 6500’s 63.4cc two-stroke petrol engine is also designed to make life a little easier for the user, with a handy decompression valve and easy access recoil starter included to help ensure hassle-free starting every time. In addition to this, the inclusion of a high capacity 0.8 litre fuel tank means that the MT 6500 can be used for longer without having to stop and refuel, thus saving time and effort when taking on heavier workloads. The MT 6500’s comfortable front and rear handles, meanwhile, offer a reassuringly secure grip, which is complemented by the added comfort offered by a pleasingly effective anti-vibration system. Perhaps what is most remarkable about Efco’s MT 6500, then, is not that it provides a brilliant way of taking on the most challenging cutting work in hostile environments, but that it allows you to work in complete comfort as you do so!

    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.
