Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does this include a battery and charger?

    No, this model does not include a battery. This is an electric tool.

  • How much does the Worx 8 Amp Electric 14” Chainsaw weigh?

    The 14” Electric Chainsaw weighs 6.6 pounds.

  • How powerful is the 8 Amp Electric 14” Chainsaw?

    This model (WG305.1) is a 8 Amp tool and uses a 120V ~ 60Hz power supply.

  • What is the chainsaw’s cutting capacity?

    To fell a standing tree, it’s recommended that you use a bar longer than the diameter of a tree. To cut a tree that has already fallen, you can cut up to double the bar length minus a couple of inches by making two cuts, one from each available side of the tree. For example: If the bar is 14” you can cut a log up to 26” in diameter. For complete safety details, please review your owner’s manual.


    The Worx 14” Electric Chainsaw can take any kind of bar and chain oil, which is available in most hardware stores or stores that sell chainsaws. The oil tank capacity will hold 4.06 ounces.

  • How can I prevent oil leakage?

    With a saw designed to self-lubricate during operation, a little oil leakage is normal. To help minimize and prevent leakage, we recommend the following:

    -Use only enough oil for the task at hand.

    -Remove oil cap and immediately replace it after operation to vent the oil tank. This relieves any accumulated pressure during the oiling process.

    -Allow the saw to cool down before storing.

    -Wipe down the saw sprocket area.

    -Remove oil from saw before storage.

    -Store the saw horizontally when not in use.

  • What is the chain speed?

    The chain spins at 28 f/s.


    There are 52 links on the 14” Electric Chainsaw chain. The chain is a 3/8 inch pitch and has a gauge of 0.05”.

  • What size file do I need to sharpen the chain?

    The file size for sharpening the included chain is 5/32”.

  • The tension on my chainsaw isn’t right. How do I adjust it?

    Worx innovation means we make the tough stuff a lot easier, including chain tensioning. The full instructions for how to properly tension your chainsaw can be found in the manual, which can be downloaded here.


    You can find the replacement bar (WA0158) and chain (WA0157) under Accessories and they can be shipped right to you.

    If you need a faster option, local hardware or home improvement stores may carry accessories that fit your Worx chainsaw. Look for the following items compatible with your WG304.1 15 Amp 18” Electric Chainsaw.

8 Amp Electric 14" Chainsaw is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 150.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard Working Tool Following Hurricane Florence I had several clean up projects. This saw works as well as a gas saw, has lots of power, and needs no follow up maintenance . It will do anything a gas powered saw does, but it is quieter and lighter. I'm a fan of electric power tools and Worx makes some really good tyools

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw for a super price. I purchased this saw at Lowes this week to have a chainsaw that I can grab for those quick clean up jobs on our 1 acre home lot. This saw is awesome! It had no problems cutting through fallen limbs from our hardwood trees that were 10-12" in diameter. I mostly needed it for the hundreds of saplings and honeysuckle bushes that we get around here. It worked like a champ. ZERO issues. No oil leakage, no chain falling off, no 'smoking motor'. Of course, I read and followed the directions and kept the chain well lubricated and tightened as needed (3 times in 1 full hour of use) and let the chainsaw do the work (i.e. I did not try to force it!) I would recommend this saw to anyone for light home duty. Oh yeah, and I did not expect this to be the same as my 18" gas powered Stihl chainsaw. ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I bought this so I could take down some trees that were causing leave stoppage into my pool. I saw mixed reviews but I went and bought it anyway. It worked great! I saw a few people say they had issues with leakage or the chain loosening but I didn’t have either of those while using. It also didn’t use as much chain oil as it said it would. I cut down 3 trees. Some had multiple stumps ranging from 3-18 inches with no issues. I also cut those trees down into manageable sizes. It only leaked fluid after being stored for a few days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Worx tools. I have owned about 3 of these 14 inch units. Bought the first one about 3 years ago. Now before you think they dont last and I have to keep buying them, its actually because they keep disappearing... My dad took one and my brother took the other. They are getting used constantly and are still working great. The first one did two trees before it got taken, one of them almost 40 by 40ft. Turned that one into firewood. At the great price I got them I dont mind replacing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right! I had been looking for a saw that I could use myself. I have some severe medical issues and needed something light and easy to use, not to mention affordable. This saw is just right for the minor cuts I need to do. Little difficult for me to tighten the chain and bar, but shouldn't be for most people. It is kind of a problem to get an extension cord to plug into it because of the cords shield.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for First Time Chainsaw Users! I bought this because I had never used a chainsaw before. I have a few pineapple palm trees and a few other palms. The price was really good. The instructions were really clear. I really like that there are several YouTube videos on this chainsaw. How to use it, what to do, what not to do. Very informative. The ease of use was fantastic. I went thru the trees like butter. They look fantastic! I also like that I save a few bucks each year now doing it myself instead of having the landscapers come out and take care if it. It was so much fun that I felt like Tim Allen afterwards grunting and happy. I did have to adjust the chain a couple of times. It was very easy. Took only a few seconds, then back at it. This is a fantastic device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT lightweight Chainsaw! Recently bought my second one of these saws. They simply work GREAT! Never had a problem after using my first one of these around two years and running. I have used that saw all over my 11 acres, utilizing a portable generator for power. I have used it so much, the bar was becoming quite worn and I also needed another new 14" chain. Worx had a special buy on these saws again & a new saw was just a few dollars more than the bar and chain would have been by themselves. So it was a easy decision to make. Small saw you say? Not with the power these things have. I have cut down and limbed trees from 60' tall on down to saplings with it. Both hardwood and pine. It's just a super chainsaw that will do far more work than you'd expect. Do I like it and think it's a great buy? You bet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All you need This is a tool I rarely use (thus electric instead of gas) but a must when needed. I previously owned an electric chain saw kept primarily to assist in clean up following storms. Didn’t particularly like that one so I got rid of it a while back. But when we had hurricane Irma coming into our state I determined I had been a little premature in making that decision and figured I had better replace it. Having prior experience with WORX products I looked to see who sold them locally. Lowe’s was the only place that had their chain saws in stock. (I wanted to buy the 16” saw but they didn’t have it. As it turns out, this one does everything I needed it to.) They had another brand as well, but in my opinion the WORX has a better placement of the safety switch and more importantly, enough clearance between the handle and guard so you can wear gloves while using the saw and it felt more comfortable in the hand. Fortunately I didn’t need the saw for storm clean up but did have a tree that was dying. So this is the first use after owning it for about three months. This saw handled the tree admirably. The chain stretched a little after first use but adjustment was very easy. It has a manual oiler that I prefer. i would have liked the handle to wrap around the side for easier felling trees (not needed for general trimming) otherwise have no complaints. So, it seems this one should handle most everyone’s everyday cutting needs with ease. One more comment. Getting the stump out. Obviously could not use the chain saw to cut the roots - that would guarantee to ruin the chain and possibly the bar and sprocket as well. So used my WORX reciprocal saw with a 9” pruning blade to cut through the roots. (The tap root was as thick as the trunk itself). Took a little while but definitely saved a lot of hard labor trying to chop it out. Thank you WORX!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Christmas gift ever! I am a 54 year old grandmother and last Christmas I asked santa for a small lightweight chainsaw. My youngest son bought me the 14 inch worx electric chainsaw after reading the reviews. I absolutely love this chainsaw. It's lightweight enough for me to handle it with ease. But rugged enough to get the job done. I have used it to cut up branches 10 inch and larger. My husband got his gas power chainsaw stuck in a tree that he was trying to fell and me and my handy dandy worx saw have to finish cutting the tree down. This is an excellent buy for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Powerful I've never owned a chainsaw. I didn't want to overspend on one and when the 8 amp 14" went on sale, I couldn't resist. I also had a need so the timing couldn't have been better! Assembly was beyond simple. The box made it look like a tiny thing but it's not. Attaching the bar to the motor was a breeze, as long as you're careful and pay attention. The weight is marvelous! Easy to maneuver and guide. As I used it for the first time, I found that I needed to adjust the chain tension from time to time. Not a problem! Even with gloves on, the cover comes off and adjustment is simple. The only "issue" I encountered was adding the chainsaw oil. The left side of the motor housing appears to have a translucent window to the oil chamber. Not so much. I ended up with oil on my counter. Now I know I'll need a strong light source when filling. Got through my entire project without a hitch, glitch or gotcha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This little chainsaw is an amazing workhorse. Truly impressive chainsaw from a guy who cuts 3 to 4 cords of wood every year. You don't have to spend time trying to get it fired up every year. Just plug it in and start cutting wood! I use a variety of hardwoods and it has no problem cutting through them. Unbeatable little chainsaw for the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Female Friendly I'm a 100 lb, 72 year old female so, I needed a chain saw that is lightweight and easy to operate. That's what I wanted and that's what I got. I couldn't be happier. Now, I can cut down oversized yucca plants and eliminate the stumps. Thank you Worx for another great affordable piece of equipment that makes my life easier.
