WORX Electric Chainsaw review (and gas vs electric)

Should you buy a gas or electric tool? I’ll talk about it with regards to a chainsaw, specifically the WORX 15 AMP corded electric 18″ chainsaw.

I’ve no affiliation with WORX.

PROS: Value purchase perfect for a weekend warrior homeowner, virtually no maintenance, always ready.

CONS: Oil filler cap placement

Cord on a chain saw……….maybe you can’t hear. Where is OSHA

Chip LeVan says:

I have a Honda generator I bought for when power goes out… I never have to use it. I recently kinda figured I could buy an electric saw and maybe even a splitter and plug it in to the generator if far away from home. That way I get some use from the generator and don’t leave it setting, not operating for so long. Nice review.

Buddy this was exactly the video that I needed, I needed a brief explanation of the product and the power strength of it which you showed ! Very well done

Jimmy's Tractor says:

Figured this would have more comments. Nice saw. I didn’t think I would, but for a homeowner chain saw or even a lawn service or landscaper, I think electric is the way to go. Kick back is almost non existent with the low profile chain. I spent a little on a cordless and it’s hard to tell if it’s any faster than yours. At 100% efficiency you’re limited to about 2 real hp from a standard outlet. Did that saw come with a skip chain?

At least you have eye protection but get some chaps man save your legs

Steve Balistreri says:

Nice video, thank you for posting it.

+ripcurl711711 thanks for the video, but did you/have you cut green wood, especially hardwood (such as oak)? That’d be telling. Looked like the logs you were cutting here were pithy softwoods. Thanks.
