Answer: 
The first answer is correct. It's a poor way of saying that it's a self-oiler. You do need to add chain oil on a regular basis. The saw self-oils as you go - there's no plunger to push like on some chain saws.

Answer: 
I'm sorry I am not familiar with the picture you are referring to. The saw does need bar and chain oil, that's why there is a reservoir and fill cap. Where did you see this picture you refer to?

I have the Worx 303.1 16" electric chainsaw. I use a 16 gauge/100' cord with mine. I have used it for almost 2 hours straight with little rest. If between a 14 or 12 gauge, I would personally go with the 14 gauge.

Use the 12 AVG size cord. Also try to use a 20 amp circuit for your work. I tried a 15 amp circuit and it would only run the saw for about ten minutes, then the breaker would trip.

Answer: 
The heavier the better do to VOLTAGE DROP..... your going to lose amperage commiserate to the distance of the cord. This can overtax your motor and cause damage if severe enough. The 12 ga. allows for more unrestricted flow so that would be the best of the two. If you can run off a 20amp. breaker with your cord so much the better.
Google voltage drop for a clearer explaination.

I called Worx today (02/11/2015) and asked this question about the WG303.1 and WG304.1 and was told that you are putting out new manuals, and it would be OK to use 14 gauge/100' cord for both. When I get conflicting answers to the same question it stops me cold. What's the story? I'll be using the saw to cut up firewood - cutting 4" - 10" diameter logs in half, etc., for about 20 - 30 minutes.

16 in. 14.5 Amp Electric Chainsaw is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 203.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding electric chainsaw I had some large bushes and small trees to cut down and did not want a gasoline powered chainsaw. Also, no battery operated either. I had a cordless leaf blower and I barely got half way through the job. I must say that the 16" Worx chainsaw lived up to its positive reviews, which is what I based my purchase on. That little chainsaw has some serious power. Even the men in the family could not believe how powerful it was as an electric product. I would highly recommend this chainsaw to anyone for the home. I am a 70 year old woman and it is light enough that I could handle it. For the value, power and overall capability of the Worx chainsaw it truly is a bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of use, great customer service I bought a Worx 16" Electic chain saw over a year ago, it performed much better than a gas powered saw I had until I read the Worx reviews. I did however, burn out the motor. I called Worx directly, to ask what may have happened, they asked how long I had it, (which was an approximation on my part), and what the issue was. The customer service representative offered to replace it free of charge, and even pay for shipping back the original. Five days after the call I received the replacement. Customer service such as this is such a rarity, I am now a Worx customer for life! The saw does a great job around the yard, and cuts through 8" branches with ease. I would recommend Worx products to anyone!

Have used this chain saw to cut trees 18 - 24" in diameter with no problem. Took it out of the box, added the bar oil, plugged it in, and went to work. Seems to drink the bar oil, but bought a gallon so it is fine. And, frankly, I probably need the refill breaks as much as the saw does. I have not tried one than one 100' drop cord tethered together, so don't know if the performance will drop off over distance. If/when I do, I'll try to revise this review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations (so far) I was very suprised how well this works for the money. Had a lot of small trees branches to trim and then had a large limb of about 6 inches in radius fall during a storm right after I received it. Neighbors had same tree issues from the storm and he had a gas powered chainsaw . I was done and over cutting his downed limbs before he was able to get his gas one started. Will update after my next lumberjack outing in late August.

This saw is a real workhorse that handled all of my debris from Hurricane Matthew up to pieces 10" in diameter. Automatic chain oiler and ease of chain tensioning is a definite plus.

You'll be hard pressed to find a better value for your money.

I received a refund and have ordered another one. Despite this I recommend it. I like the saw. It has gotten excellent reviews, seems heavy duty and I like the easy chain tension adjustment. I think the lubrication system will be good, using an oil pump which only runs when the saw is running. Looking forward to receiving the re-ordered saw.

Used this to cut up a few limbs that our neighbor lost during a storm a few weeks ago, going to turn the limbs into Xmas decorations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chain saw Not bad.. Cut down a nice sized tree with little to no problems.. The chain did come off one time, but it was from being pinched in the wood. Easy to reinstall an keep going.. Uses a lot of oil but the chain stays lubed an sharp. The speed of the blade is good not to fast to over heat the cut chain. All in all good
