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.

See the owner’s manual for complete safety instructions and details.

14.5 Amp Electric 16" Chainsaw is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 289.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for our use! Purchased this as a gift for my husband. He's disabled, and his regular chainsaw is just too much for him to lug around any longer. This one is PERFECT! It's just right to cut up a brush pile we've let go far too long. It's also hefty enough that he's been using it to cut our firewood into smaller sections. We have quite a few Worx tools, and this is by far the favorite! Thank you, Worx, for helping him continue to do work that needs doing without further injuring his knees!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good features and a good price I bought this saw to trip a tree that requires at lease trimming every other year. this saw made it super easy to do and to get it done quickly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This 16” electric chainsaw is powerful, lightweight, easy to use, easy to clean, and quiet. I just got the 18” and the jaw saw is next. WORX is for real. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable, not prone to falling apart. After years of dealing with 3 or 4 other brands widely available at Home Depot and loew's, I purchased a Worx chainsaw to cut up small firewood for a small woodstove in a house close to the Mexican border in AZ. All the other brands were cheaply made and--maybe--would last the season without some major part falling off or becoming inoperative. I was ALWAYS retightening saw blades with a wrench, a real nuisance. I bought Worx as the last brand I hadn't tried and now I own two Worx chainsaws, 14 and 16-inch models. (However, recently I ordered 2 new saw chains from Worx in NC and it took forever for them to arrive, perhaps 2+ weeks, so do yourself a favor and have a spare chain in reserve). Also, Worx chainsaws seem to have a little more oomph in the cutting department--you don't feel like you're wielding a toy or something. The price is right and the quality id built-in--that's my recommendation to anyone considering an electric, small-scale saw for non-major cutting requirements.

I have a WG303.1 and want to replace the chain. I can not find an Oregon chain that says 91PX057X. I have been to Lowes and Home Depot and all their Oregon chains has an S and then the number of chain drive links. What does the X stand for in 91PX057X?

Asked by: Waynes65
What they dont say is that if you dare to live in Hawaii, or some other far flung state Worx will put a large surcharge on shipping a replacement chain to you.  In my case, two chains carry ansurcharge of almost $50.00.  The entire saw isn’t worth much moremthan that... especially with the short blade life! BAH!

what size of file for the303.1????

Asked by: cremd

I put the oil that came with the chainsaw in oil reservoir (filling it to less than 1/2 full) and did the "Checking The Automatic Oiler." I saw NO oil pattern, at all, on my cardboard. What now?

Asked by: GigiS
Thank you for your question. The chainsaw will have to run 10-15 minutes allowing it to warm up, once that is complete run the chainsaw for another 2-3 minutes and you would then point it down at an angle over something white and you should then see little drips of oil.
