Does this come with a battery?
No, this model does not include a battery. This is an electric tool.
How much does the JawSaw weigh?
The Worx JawSaw weighs 8.1 pounds, about the same as a gallon of milk. Not only is the weight balanced for the best ergonomic experience for our users, the innovative jaw design helps support the weight of the tool and make it easy to use when cutting overhead branches.
I’ve seen the JawSaw described as battery-operated and electric. Which is correct?
We have two versions of the JawSaw, so they are both correct. The WG307 model is an electric tool. Our battery-operated JawSaw is model number WG320 and can be found here.
How powerful is the JawSaw?
The JawSaw is a 5 Amp tool and uses a 120V ~ 60Hz power supply.
How long is the cord?
The Worx JawSaw’s attached cord is 11-1/2” and equipped with an extension cord retainer to help keep your power cords connected, even if it gets caught while you’re working.
What is the largest branch that the JawSaw can cut?
The JawSaw can handle branches up to 4" in diameter.
What is the chain speed?
The chain spins at 18 ft/second.
Does the JawSaw come pre-assembled?
Yes, the Worx JawSaw comes fully assembled. Just oil the chain as instructed in the manual, and you’re ready to work!
What gauge extension cord is recommended to use with the JawSaw?
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 WG307 is a 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.
What kind of oil do I use on the JawSaw?
To oil the chain, use a winter-weight bar and chain oil which is available in most hardware stores or stores that sell chainsaws.
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 that red thing attached to my JawSaw’s cord used for?
That is the service key, which puts the JawSaw in "service mode" and prevents it from accidentally operating. When in service mode, the bar and chain can be removed & the chain can be tightened.
How do I sharpen the chain?
If you want to sharpen the chain yourself, we recommend the Oregon 25894 5/32” file with guide, and the Oregon 27742 Depth gauge and file guide, for the best results. You can also check with local hardware stores for professional sharpening services.

How many chain links are on the JawSaw chain?
There are 42 links on the JawSaw chain.
What other types of replacement chain should I use?
Because of the unique design of the Worx JawSaw, we only recommend using the Worx replacement chain.
I saw an extension pole as an available accessory. Is this required for using the JawSaw?
The JawSaw can be used with or without the extension pole. The extension pole is designed to help reach branches up to 12’ high and can be quickly and easily attached or detached depending on how you need to use the JawSaw.
There are two different extension poles. How do I know which one is right for my JawSaw?
There is an extension pole for the electric JawSaw and one for the battery-operated version. Be sure to select the type of extension pole that matches your JawSaw:
WA0163 Extension pole for Electric JawSaw (model WG307)
WA0169 Extension pole for Cordless/Battery-operated JawSaw (model WG320)
What is the weight of the tool with the Extension pole?
The total weight of the JawSaw and extension pole is 11.7 pounds.
What is the length of the JawSaw and the Extension Pole?
Jawsaw is 33 inches (or 2 ft 9 inches) and the Pole is 61.5 inches (or 5 ft 1.5 inches) in length. When used together, the total length is around 7 ft 9 inches.
If the total length of the JawSaw and extension pole is less than 8’, how can they reach up to 12’?
Working directly overhead is never a safe option when trimming limbs from trees, so the calculation isn’t based on direct reach. Since the safest way to approach tree trimming would be standing away from the branch being cut and reaching up at an angle, the total reach factors in the average height of the person using the tool as at least 4’. When standing at the base of the tree and reaching with the JawSaw at an angle, the average user can cut branches at a height of 12 or more feet.
Why do I have to pay s&h on the extension pole accessory?
The extension pole comes pre-assembled making the box an oversized box in length and therefore cost extra to ship.
Are there any precautions I should follow?
Carefully review the owner’s manual for all safety information and guidelines for the JawSaw. 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.
