WORX WG303.1 Review
The WORX WG303.1 has built a reputation of being one of the leading corded electric chainsaws on the market. It’s a good alternative to the fume emitting, heavy, and loud gas powered saws. The WG303.1 offers efficiency and handling that any chainsaw user can appreciate.
The WORX WG303.1 is fitted with a powerful 14.5 Amp motor. This is sufficient enough for most household cutting tasks. To operate the chainsaw, all you need to do is plug it into a 120-volt power outlet.
If you’ve handled gas-powered chainsaws, most won’t qualify as being lightweight. The WORX electric chainsaw weighs just 11 pounds. This is much lighter compared to gas-powered and even most competing corded chainsaws. It also produced less vibration and noise ensuring you’re fully comfortable while using it. The design also includes a rubber padded ergonomically designed rear handle and a full wrap front handle which make it easy to control.
Although it’s always recommended that you perform maintenance and safety checks before using any chainsaw, WORX WG303.1 chainsaw’s design keeps these checks minimal. Being a corded electric chainsaw, you don’t have to worry about checking if the gas tank is full or if its battery is charged. It comes with an auto chain tensioning feature so you won’t have to tighten or loosen the chain manually before use.
Another maintenance check that you can skip when using this chainsaw is manually applying oil to the chain and bar. It comes with a built-in auto oil dispenser which keeps these parts well lubricated. The only maintenance check you might need to perform is ensuring that the oil reservoir isn’t empty when you power up your WORX WG303.1.

A conveniently placed ON/OFF switch ensures that you can switch this chainsaw on or off at will. A built-in low kickback bar and chain brake ensure that you don’t accidentally injure yourself due to kickback.
