Electric Chainsaw by WORX
I’ve owned a couple gas chainsaws over the years and for the small amount I need and use one they were always a pain to start after months of storage.
I had an opportunity to sell my gas saw a few months back and jumped on it, he’s happy and I happier. I had been looking at this electric saw before and research showed me this would do the job for me. For storm pruning or cutting a cord of wood a year this saw will handle that job very well.
The downside of this saw for many people would be the need for an extension cord to power the saw. At a full load TORX recommends a 12ga x 50 feet long max length cord.
For myself, the cord is not an issue because I can and do run the saw off my HONDA 2000i. The HONDA is very portable. I have to have a generator living here in
anyway so this saw is just another opportunity to use it. Florida
15 amps full load, 110volts
18 inch bar length
Chain speed 12m/s

Here’s a link to a YouTube video of a gas saw vs Worx saw. Not a scientific comparison but clearly shows this saw will get the job done. It cuts the same log almost as fast as the gas saw.
I like this saw and recommend it. It’s built solid and has plenty of power. Using my HONDA 2000i I can cut wood anywhere a gas saw can go. And it starts every time by simply pulling the trigger.
