Description:
WORX WG303.1 16-Inch Chain Saw, 3.5 HP 14.5 Amp.
A perfect electric chainsaw for the average home user. You might be surprised of what this chainsaw is capable of. Based on numerous online reviews, this saw performs flawlessly in its size and power category. It even rivals the gas chainsaws. The saw is well designed, ergonomic and has excellent torque to cut wood larger than its own bar length. This is not a toy!

Pros:
Comfortable, light and easy to use.
Starts at the push of a button.
Good power, low noise and vibration. No gas fumes.
Comes with a built in automatic chain and bar oiler.
No tools needed (hand) adjustable chain tensioner.
Kickback hand guard and chain brake – safety features, like on gas chainsaws. Chain stops almost emedietly after releasing the trigger.
Maintenance of the WORX WG303.1 is reduced to a minimum. There are no issues, that relate to gas chainsaws, like fuel issues, filter maintenance, cold starting, carburettor fouling and etc.

Cons:
Quickly uses chain and bar oil. Needs to refill quite often.
The automatic chain oiler might not work with thick lubricating oils, so stick to the lower viscosity “light” oils. This is not mentioned in the user’s manual.
The necessity of electrical power. Also the extension cord might be a hindrance.

On the Job maintenance:
Mainly consists of refilling chain and bar oil. Chain tensioner is automatic, but may require manual re-adjustment during use, because of chain and bar wear. But the adjustment is simple and fast, does not require additional tools and might take only a minute tops. Just loosen the chain tightening knob and re-tighten.
Regular maintenance:
Your saw is as good as the condition of the chain. So regular chain sharpening is mandatory. Ample of tools available for this job – files with guides and electric sharpeners. Of course you can buy additional chains. Cleaning under the chain cover is also recommended.

Notes:
Always have additional bar oil.
The extension cord must be able to handle 15 Amps and more, preferably 20 Amps.
Convenient for elderly people, because of light weight and push button starting.
