Both the air-filter and the cylinder cover on the Efco MT-4400 can be removed without tools, so routine maintenance couldn’t be easier. A side-mounted chain-tensioner allows for rapid adjustment with no risk of touching the saw-chain; while an adjustable oil-pump makes it possible to set the oil-flow rate (to the cutting-gear) to suit the density of the timber you’re working on. This model also features comprehensive ‘kick back’ protection in the form of an inertia activated chain-brake; and a forged-steel crankshaft, which confers exceptional durability, even when the saw is regularly subjected to long periods of maximum-rev use.

The fuel tank takes 0.3L of fuel, so you do not have to spend all your time filling up. The longer chain bar of 45cm enables you to cut logs up to 90cm in diameter and safety is assured as the operator is protected by both a sturdy and good sized front hand guard and an inertia activated fast-acting chain brake which will protect against possible kickback. Any good chainsaw user will tell you that keeping your guide bar and chain properly lubricated is a very important regular maintenance task, so Ryobi have included automatic bar and chain lubrication to make things easier. Comfort and convenience are also important when cutting wood and chainsaws can cause discomfort through excessive vibration. This model, which is also on the quieter side of chainsaws, has a 3-point anti-vibration isolation system to enable operators to work for longer in comfort. Handles are also well designed and comfortable. The weight of the chainsaw, at 5.4kg, means it is easy to handle and manipulate and the balance is good, with weight distribution enhancing user comfort. A large selection of high quality and very practical accessories is also bundled with this model, giving even better value for money. These include a supply of bar and chain lubricant, 2-stroke oil, a wrench for maintenance and minor adjustments and a deluxe carry-case which completely encloses both the body and bar of the saw, making storage and particularly transport, easy and safe.

The efficient and reliable petrol engine delivers 1.6kw of power with a displacement of 40cc and a chain speed of 18.1 m/s and is a 2-stroke, relying on a mix of oil and fuel to run efficiently.

The 35cm guide bar and chain need regular lubricating and this is done automatically on this model, again saving you time and effort and ensuring optimum lubrication. Safety when using a chainsaw is imperative and for this reason the Ryobi RCS4040CA 40cc Petrol Chainsaw has a solid and good sized front hand guard and also an integrated, fast-acting chain brake, inertia activated for reassuring protection against any potential kickback.
