WORX WG303.1 16-Inch 14.5 Amp Electric Chainsaw Review
This electric chainsaw is the perfect power tool for the homeowner who is looking for something to use mainly on medium-sized and smaller projects, but wants the option of taking on larger jobs should they arise. If you are hoping to fell a 100 acre forest, this may not be the one for you, but if you have a lot of limbing and trimming and want to be able to tackle the odd fallen tree after a storm, the WG303.1 is the right saw for you.
Featuring a 3.5 HP 14.5 Amp Engine, a 16 inch bar, and a chain speed of 12 metres per second, this electric model has the power and feel of a burlier gas chainsaw. Don’t let that power fool you, though, it’s still a breeze to use, operate, and maintain. Installing and tightening backup chains with the tool-free setup can be done quickly and with little stress while the WG303.1’s auto-tensioning system means that you’re at no risk of over tightening the chain. An automatic oiler also keeps the saw lubricated so you don’t have to spend time working with messy oils.
Marry these features with the general ease of using electric saws over gas powered ones – simple startup, no need to cool down and refuel, less mess, etc. — and you have the perfect tool for the amateur arborist. Plus, added safety features like an automatic kickback prevention brake, activated when an improper angle is used to make a cut, and an ergonomic will go a long way to helping you cut comfortably.
