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 14.5 Amp Electric 16” Chainsaw weigh?

    The 16” Electric Chainsaw weighs 11 pounds.

  • How powerful is the 14.5 Amp Electric 16” Chainsaw?

    This model (WG303.1) is a 14.5 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 16” you can cut a log up to 30” in diameter. For complete safety details, please review your owner’s manual.


    The Worx 16” 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 6.76 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 12 m/s.


    There are 57 links on the 16” 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.





  • How long is the cord?

    The Worx 16” Electric Chainsaw has an attached cord 14” long.

  • What gauge extension cord is recommended to use with the Worx 14.5 Amp Electric 16” Chainsaw?

    The right extension cord will ensure you get the performance you expect and will extend the life of your blower. Look for an extension cord rated for Outdoor Use and make sure the gauge of the cord is appropriate for the length you’re using. The WG303.1 is a 14.5A tool, so check for gauge and length on the grid here, or in your manual. Your local hardware or garden supply store will be happy to help you select the right cord to meet your needs.

  • Are there any precautions I should follow when using the chainsaw?

    Carefully review the owner’s manual for all safety information and guidelines for the 15A Chainsaw. Follow safety precautions while using any power tools – including wearing safety eyewear, gloves, appropriate shoes & clothing, and keeping hair tied back. See the owner’s manual for complete safety instructions and details.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Worx Wonder I have purchased several Worx products over the years and was most anxious to try the electric chainsaw. It was a dream to use (I have gone through a few chainsaws before this one). I liked the weight, cutting performance and power. It is a welcome addition to my Worx collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small yet powerful My wife bought this and I gave her a really difficult time because I wanted a chainsaw I could take camping and cut “real” wood for campfires. I was completely wrong about this chainsaw. I took an extra battery on the hunting trip and cut all the wood I needed with the one battery and didn’t need the extra. I was even able to cut the limb needed to hang the deer. I didn’t get the deer but we had a nice campfire each night. This is one of the best purchases we’ve made from Worx.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. Just what I need and more. I bought this to cut down two trees. One was a smaller tree with about a 12” trunk. The other had about a 20” trunk and was higher than the roof on my house. As a 50+ year old female, I was able to cut down both trees and get the trunks to a height for stump grinding. This is easy to assemble, start, and use. It does not have the vibration or weight of a gas powered saw. I would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIGHTWEIGHT AND EASY TO USE I initially bought the battery powered blower and recently added the electric chainsaw...after two shoulder surgeries I can still do my own yard work. During recovery my wife was able to use them as well and loves them...especially the blower. I recommend all your tool lines to young and not so young alike. I will continue to add to my collection ...have had my eye on the weed eater!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped Clear a 1/3 Acre Lot With A Lot of Trees This is amazing it cuts fast .I finally wore the chain out and need another one, they are only $14.00 online. Cut a 20 Inch thick branch, it took just a little time .I wish it had a battery pack I would carry it in my truck for protection its small and lightweight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paid For Itself Bought this chainsaw about a year ago. Has already paid for itself. Instead of having to hire someone to trim my crepe myrtles, I did it myself. Perfect tool for anyone who has trees, etc., that need trimming yearly. Used it for larger dead limbs on other trees as well. Very happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and works well. I am 64 year old lady and after last hurricane season, I thought I'd never get the trees out of my yard. So I whipped out my trusty saw and cut up six big trees! the saw is light and easy to handle, even for me.It took me weeks of cutting but I got it all done without any breakdowns and only one blade change. I liked it so much, I bought the 14 inch saw for smaller jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm I got this chainsaw to take down some branches and cedar trees in the back of my lot. I had been using a handsaw previously (ugh) and this chainsaw cut through it all like butter. What would have taken me days took me an afternoon. Set up and use of the chainsaw was very easy, and I didn't have to mess around with gas, thankfully. I am guessing this one won't do the mighty oaks in the forest but it worked great for my purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Home Chainsaw Bought the Worx 16" electric chainsaw to bring down an aging redbud tree, around 10 feet tall. I needed a saw that was manageable, light weight and easy to use. The 14.5 amp Worx electric chainsaw fit the bill perfectly! I was able to take the tree down within minutes. Having never owned a chainsaw, I could not be happier!. The ease of starting the saw, oiling it & the ease of cleaning up the saw after use saved me the hassle and cost of calling on a removal service. Accessing the chain for cleaning or adjusting was a breeze and I feel confident I can repair, change the chain, etc whenever it becomes needed. Because redbud wood is so beautiful, the manageability of the Worx, allowed for extremely clean and precise cuts to keep the wood for future wood projects too! I would reccommend this saw for any novice user and for any smaller tasks around the home! I

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great electric saw. I had a tree fall on my garage not long ago. I needed a saw but didn't want to bother with a gas saw I compared saws and power, then I ran across this saw. This saw cut through a 16 inch trunk with no problem. Great electric. saw with good power.

Date published: 2018-06-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome yard-work saw! I've only used the saw once so far, but I am very impressed with it. It's an awesome yard-work tool. I cut 4 trees under 12" and about 30' tall, it took less than an hour to cut them up and clean up. The only complaint I might have is that you have to watch your cord all the time, you don't want to cut into it. Otherwise, no gas and oil mix, no issues cranking it up, just plug it in and start cutting. It's got more power than I expected, it's sharp, and cuts like a dream! Ideal for my back-yard project/s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from no problems I bought this chainsaw after looking at lots of different models/brands online and in the store. I'd never operated a chainsaw before and was a little apprehensive. I needed something to cut up two Leyland Cypress trees that fell over in a big wind storm. The trees were about 25 feet tall and thickly branched. I didn't want a chainsaw that was too heavy and debated between 16" and smaller models. I'm glad I got the the 16". It's worked fine, even on tree trunks over 16" in diameter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from more powerful than I expected. I bought this saw to clean up my yard. I started to cut some branches, moved on to some small trees and ended up cutting down a few medium sized trees. The saw performed wonderfully, much more powerful than the saw it replaced. I was told to buy a gas saw but I am very happy with this electric model.
