About - Worx WG303.1

The Worx WG303.1 is part of the chain saw test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, chain saw models like the WG303.1 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Cutting speed:
How fast a saw cut through a 10-inch-square oak beam.

Safety:
Consists of kickback intensity, the potential for burn due to inadvertent contact with the muffler, and storage safety--how well protected the cutting chain is from accidental contact during storage.

Ease of use:
Based on engine-starting convenience (the average number of pulls to start), primer and choke location and operation, and the ease of adjusting the cutting chain’s tightness, checking and adding fluids, and accessing the air filter and spark plug.

Comment:
I don't understand the poor reviews. After a snow/ice storm, most of the top of one of my neighbor's trees snapped off and ended in my back yard. I have a regular gas-powered chain saw, but it had been sitting for over a year and was in my up in my shed (22 degrees that day) and I couldn't get it to start. I didn't have time to keep fiddling with it so, based on the CR review, I went and bought this saw. It went through everything, even up to about 8-9 diameter, like butter. Being that I never use my chain saw anywhere but at home and not that often, I'll probably get my gas-powered saw running and sell it at a yard sale next spring. I'll stick with this one and just borrow a gas-powered one from one of my neighbors if I ever need one.
