The Efco line of chainsaws is amazing. Very little info out there but i have owned the Efco 152 and currently upgraded to the EFCO 156 and boy what a saw. They cut amazing, i have lined up next to stihls, and huskys with similar horsepower and have yet to be shown up. Great saw for the price and you will not be unhappy

The best chainsaws on the market for the money! These are professionally made chainsaws (not some cheaply made homeowner product line) and are capable of keeping pace with the Stihl's and Husqvarna's which are double the price!
Just be careful who you buy the chainsaw from though because some people have them way overpriced!
I got my Efco MT-165 w/ 24" bar & chain 0.058" width for $434!
The Efco MT-156 20" bar & chain sells for $299 or less with shorter bar & chain combination so don't get taken advantage of!
In case your wondering, these are Italian made ... the same company also makes the saw for John Deere and Cub Cadet (one being greeen and the other yellow but it's a Efco). This is not a well known brand but that's changing since people are getting tired of paying double the price just because it has Stihl or Husqvarna stamps on it! The same could be said for Dolmar (Makita) chainsaws!
