Sometimes you get lucky and get more than you pay for. When that happens, you as the consumer wins. In the world of power tools and heavy-duty power equipment, it’s hard to find something that you find real consumer value in.
With the WORX WG303 16-Inch 3.5 HP 14.5 Amp Electric Chain Saw, you get a chainsaw that is lightweight, feature packed and very competitively priced. If you put these three things together, you’ll find that this machine is head over heels above other newcomers in their class.
Big or small, you can operate this like you’re a lumberjack to trim trees, clear brush, stockpile firewood, and perform a number of other tasks in your yard because this machine only weighs eleven pounds.
It has a tensioning system and tool free chain replacement with an oversized knob that tensions the chain and secures the bar.
It also comes with a patented system of tensioning to prevent over tightening during operation. This also helps extend the life of the chain and bar. You won’t have to worry about kickbacks because the built in chain brake keeps the chain from moving when improper contact is made.
If you’re worried about oiling, during operation, the oiler automatically provides constant lubrication to both the chain and bar. It even comes with a six-ounce oil reservoir that also has an oil level indicator. The rear handle has a rubber over mold and the front hand is ergonomic so it provides you the operator the ultimate control and comfort. With each saw that comes in, it comes with a quart of chain oil and a scabbard.
This intuitive device keeps you ahead of the pace when you’re in your lawn. And that’s exactly what you need to keep your yard tidy and fresh.

Here are some of the pros and cons…
Lightweight– it’s not an oversized clunker, so feels good in your hands during operation.
Cuts powerful – Reportedly does well on tree branches up to 10’’ to 18’’.
Easy use-its as simple as it gets to adjust the blade and monitor and refill the oil.
Doesn’t work well on all conditions – on wet wood, debris tends to build up under the sprocket cover plate that can make the blade dull more quickly.
Needs more oil– when you receive it, it needs a bit more oil so just make sure you buy an extra one and don’t rely on the one that they provide solely.
Should include a sharpener in the box– the blades can get dull under some conditions.
Worx has added another solid product in the WG303 16-Inch Electric Chain Saw. It does its immediate job well without the huss and fuss.
It handles well and includes a number of safety features. Although its powerful, its light enough to be used by people of all body types.
