FAQs

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.



  • WHAT KIND OF OIL DO I USE ON THE CHAIN SAW? HOW MUCH OIL WILL THE CHAIN SAW NEED?

    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.



  • HOW MANY CHAIN DRIVE LINKS ARE ON THE Worx 14.5 Amp Electric CHAINSAW CHAIN? WHAT IS THE CHAIN PITCH? WHAT IS THE CHAIN GAUGE?

    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.



  • HOW DO I BUY A REPLACEMENT BAR OR CHAIN? CAN I GET THEM LOCALLY?

    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.

  • 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.

15 Amp Electric 18" Chainsaw is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 188.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Retired elderly lady and needed some trees cut and the saw was perfect for me to use.
Date published: 2018-09-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built very well,... beefy, and sturdy I just posted a review on the smaller chainsaw... This one is the one I would recommend though... It's stronger, and a little bit better. Both of them are great, but this one will saw through a tree a lot quicker. I suggest both of them though. Fit in your hand perfectly, well-built! Like a Tonka truck back in the day

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great as advertised. I’ve purchase three items and am extremely happy with all three. The 18” chain is great and works as advertised. I just put together the wheel barrow and can’t to use all the features. I also purchased the blower / mulched and works great. Can’t wait to use it more when the leaves fall. Great products!

What size file to sharpen a Worx wg304.1

Asked by: Bob78
Thank you for your inquiry. The file size is 5/32".

Considering that this is a 15 amp chainsaw , will it trip easily if its on a 15 amp breaker circuit? I am debating whether I should buy this based on that

Asked by: Rian19
I purchased mine @ 6 months ago, and have repeatedly used it and challenged it on a 15a breaker, and have not YET (fingers and eyes crossed) tripped it. Meaning: under normal working conditions, given a good cord, your saw usually won't pull a sustained 15 amps.

I might want to pick up an extra bar for this chainsaw. What is the part number and link for that?

Asked by: elvisTastic

The Worx bar and chain oil that came with my new Worx 18" chainsaw was clear and seemed a bit thinner than the b&c oil that i use inmy gas chainsaw.  Is it synthetic? What do you recommend i should use? I can't find Worx b&c oil anywhere?

Asked by: Tugboat62
Use any chain saw oil you prefer. I ran this question past Worx technical support and got their blessing. From experience, thicker oil works fine.

Why does the chain disengages from the bar often? Something is causing the chain tension to relax and not stay tight. What can be done to keep the chain tension from relaxing? Very troublesome and time consuming.

Asked by: LDries

I have an 18" chainsaw that I can't get the chain tensioner knob to turn to change the blade. Are there any tricks to getting it to off to change the chainsaw blade?

Asked by: sweaty Tom
I usually (counterclockwise) rotate the large adjuster knob to loosen it (you might completely take the plastic chain cover off if it is full of lubricant and wood dust, and clean it up a bit). Make sure your bar and chain are aligned properly on the guide pins and reinstall the cover, tightening it down until it ratchets or stops-- should be good to go !

Looking for a specific recommendation regarding a 100 ft extension cord for this saw. Thanks.

Asked by: Kirk3509
Thank you for your question. We do not recommend the use of a 100-foot extension cord with this tool. We recommend a 12-14 gauge 25-foot or 50-foot extension cord for use with this saw. Thank you for choosing Worx!

Hi I just bought the WORX 18" electric chain saw. It already came assembled. I have checked, double checked manual, outlets are good, cord is brand new. Why won't it start. The kick back bar is up what am I doing wrong. Thank you

Asked by: Dee27
I had the same issue, but it was the kick back bar that needs to be pulled towards you. It is a bit stiff doing so, but you have to pull it pretty hard and then it gives. It took me about 15 minutes to figure that out.
