Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Paid for in first use!
I was a skeptic, but not any more. This chainsaw is worth every penny and has not disappointed. I cut up an oak tree starting with 16" sections down to twigs. At not time did it get hot or running erratically. The chain even stayed sharp all the way through.
I had to run three extension cords out to the tree from the house. Even so, it ran beautifully. There was no chainsaw or cord heating. NICE!
Just this one job more than covered the cost of the saw in the money that I saved from hiring professionals. I am sure glad that I didn't spend hundreds of dollars on a gasoline model. I already destroyed two of those in the past 10 years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Monkeykatp Excellent for backyard trees
We bought this because some trees on our property were diseased and dropping random limbs - so, time to do some cleanup work, and hope we could hold out for the professional tree cutters to come. This chainsaw worked like a charm out of the box! It took me a few minute to figure out how to move the safety catch, but once I did, everything else was easy.
It made short work of some 10-14-inch limbs. If the other trees weren't so tall, I'd feel confident that I could make short work of them, too.
This is my first time operating a chainsaw, and I bought this one based on the size and reviews. This is an excellent chainsaw!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tired Exactly What I Needed
Right out of the box I added the included chain oil, looked over the manual, and was able to cut up some large branches that had fallen from our trees. I have not tried to change the chain or anything but it appears to be a simple operation.
The saw worked quickly and handled 6 inch diameter limbs with no problem.
I wanted to go electric because I probably will not use it often, and don't want to have to fight with a small gas motor that doesn't want to run.
The saw had plenty of power with a sharp chain.
The only negative I have found so far is that there are some profiles in the trigger guard to hold onto your extension cord, but they are so small that they would not hold my 12 gauge extension. I was able to tie a loose knot in the cords and push them through the handle and that worked.

I have never run a gas chain saw. I cut down and cut up a 50 ft. maple tree. It probably isn't as fast as a gas saw, it performed just fine. I would not recommend single hand operation. It is quiet and light weight and it starts real easy.

I cut down a 40 ft tree that was next to my septic tank. It was the first tree I ever cut and I used this Worx chainsaw for the job. Seven hours of cutting and the job was done with zero issues. The saw cut through any thickness from 2" to a 1.5 feet wide. It was flawless. The only thing I can MAYBE complain about is the oil consumption. I had to refill the oil reservoir once every 20-30 minutes of cutting. That's not bad considering there's nothing else you need to do with the saw. Plus the more oil on the chain, the better it cuts and stays sharp. I bought one gallon of oil (see my other review) and still have enough to last me for years.
This chainsaw is perfect for someone who occasionally need a tree or some branches cut down and does not want to deal with mixing oil/gas and the hassle of maintaining a gas saw. I put it to the test (7 continuous hours of cutting) and it passed with flying colors. Have no fear, order this saw!
(Please be sure to get the proper electrical cord for this beast (15amps). It needs power to do it's job correctly. My 100ft 15amp cord was $60).

I had the pros come to fell one of my oak trees for me because of a rotten base and potential for property damage. I had them cut about 10 fireplace size sections from the lower trunk a sent them on their way. Then I took out my new Worx 18inch, 15amp chainsaw and made short work of the remaining trunk and limbs. when all of the work was done and the logs neatly stacked, I carefully cleaned the saw and noticed that the chain was still very sharp.
The saw barely got warm. The auto mode automatic oiler worked great.
The saw paid for itself in this one job. Nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pede Great alternative to gas chain saw - equally effective and more cost efficient than gas.
Electric chain saw was as expected based on reviews. Extremely easy to use and great value for the money.
