How much does the 40V 12” Cordless Chainsaw weigh?
The Worx 40V 12” Cordless Chainsaw weighs 7.9 pounds, less than a gallon of milk, even with the battery installed!
How powerful is the 40V 12”Cordless Chainsaw?
The 40V Worx MAX Lithium battery included with the 12” Cordless Chainsaw is the same battery we trust to power our 40V Cordless Mower, TURBINE40V Blower, 20" Cordless Hedge Trimmer, among others, like the Hydroshot. Since the battery can stand up to those high-powered applications, you can trust it to keep up with you.
What’s the runtime for the 40V cordless chainsaw?
The runtime will vary depending on the type and density of wood you’re cutting and how thick the branches are for each cut. For example, on one charge of our 2.0Ah 40V battery, you can expect up to 23 cuts on 6” thick hardwood. Since most branches you’ll cut are less than that, you’ll typically get a much higher yield.
How long does it take to charge the battery?
The enclosed charger and battery take about 8 hours to fully recharge.
Does this use the same batteries as my other 40V WORX tools?
Yes! With 40V Share Volt, you can share the battery and save money. Your Worx 40V 12” Cordless Chainsaw can use any WORX 40V battery you already have. By sharing the battery between tools, you’ll always have the power you need to complete any job.

Are lithium batteries interchangeable with the Ni-Cad?
Our 40V lithium tools and Ni-Cd tools are separate platforms and are not interchangeable. Lithium batteries offer our customers maintenance-free technology without the hassle of managing the memory effect inherent in Ni-Cad batteries.
Are the 40 Volt Max Lithium batteries interchangeable with the 20 Volt Max Lithium Battery?
While 40V Share Volt and 20V Power Share allows you to share batteries between tools within the same voltage family, batteries should only be used with tools of a corresponding voltage. Use your 40V Max Lithium battery with any 40V WORX tool – even the garden tools – but save your 20V battery for your 20V tools.

What is the chain speed?
The chain speed is 14.8 ft/s.
What kind of oil do I use on the chain saw? How much oil will the chain saw need?
The 40V Cordless Chain Saw 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 4.5 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.
