I had recently purchased a full size chainsaw but because of the weight it was difficult to use for some of the smaller trees. The jaw chainsaw is lightweight and very easy to use. I love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Triangle144 I find this product to be very easy to use. It is light weight but sufficient to do what I want it to.
Now that I've had a chance to use the Jaw Saw, I absolutely love it. It is light weight and sufficient for what I want it to do.

I rarely give 5 stars. This saw is perfect for me. Runs slower, and I like it because it's quiet, no earmuffs. That slower speed also means it sips bar oil. Versatile for pruning, deadfall, brush. Weighs so little. Anyone can use this saw, even older and weaker people. So cool that it cuts right on the ground. If you're thinking about getting one, there are YouTube vids showing how slick this little beast can cut. I'm so glad to have it, better than both my other (never-start) chainsaws. Give one, why not?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grandmama LOVE this!
I am a 55 year old grandmother. I am able to handle this like a pro. I am using this to clean up around my yard - things that have been neglected for years because I am terrified of chainsaws I feel comfortable handling this. It's a little heavy to me, but probably as light as possible for what it can accomplish.
I have cut back large camellia and althea bushes and trimmed up low hanging tree branches. I think I maxed out the 4" diameter limit on a dogwood tree that was growing way too close to my house, and it handled it with no problem.
I can't really say much about the battery life, because I haven't used it that much yet, but it outlasts me. That's what matters.

I compared the JawSaw to A*z*n reviews of a similar saw ("A") before buying the JawSaw.
(1) The quality of the A's battery was a unanimous complaint: it is an 18v NiCad battery which doesn't hold a charge long and power drops off as the charge goes down. One reviewer said "The batteries never did last more than about 10 minutes on the job."
The JawSaw's 20v Lithium battery lasted an hour my first time with it (not continuously running, of course). The manual says it will last longer after repeated charges. Power never dropped off until the charge ran out completely.
(2) Another unanimous complaint about the A is how hard it is to add oil, which is very easy on the JawSaw.
(3) The A got frequent complaints about the chain -- difficulty with it coming off, difficulty in adjusting the tension, and with it cutting the chain guard (which on the A, doesn't completely cover the chain and bar like the JawSaw does). The chain never came off in my hour of use. The JawSaw's chain tension is done semi-automatically (loosen and immediately re-tighten a nut).
(4) The A requires 2-hands to operate. While JawSaw says to use both hands, once the saw is working, it is possible to take one hand off to hold a limb or tree. And no bending when a tree is on the ground. Stand over it and press down. The one hand operation also makes it possible to use a 5' extension handle with it (not available yet -- the corded JawSaw's extension will not work with the cordless JawSaw). There is no extension for the A.
(5) The A's battery takes 8 hours to charge with the standard charger. The JawSaw's only takes 3 hours.
I really liked being able to cut down saplings at ground level -- just laid the saw on the ground at the base of the saplings and started it up. With the bar/chain guard, there was no worry about the chain hitting the ground.
I cut down at least 20 saplings in the first hour without a problem.
The A is 40% cheaper than the JawSaw, plus the A's battery is almost 60% cheaper than the JawSaw's battery. The JawSaw is clearly better, but you are paying a lot for the improvement, especially since to use the JawSaw for more than an hour, you will need at least one more battery, but for all the improvements and advantages, I think the JawSaw is worth the price..
(1) The Worx web page for the battery says you cannot overcharge the battery, but the charger manual says you can.
(2) A Worx rep told me that an optional 5' extension pole would be available in another month or two, but the manual seems to indicate that it is only for the WG321, not the WG320, If so, that will be a major dissapointment.

Works very well! Very easy to use, it gets the job done. I would recommend for home if you have tress and thick branch bushes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by azaz Just What I expected
Bought this today. We had a branch fall off of a tree in a drive way. I now have a wagon full of fire wood. The very largest trunk of the branch is still intact, but all of the tributaries which were 4 inches and smaller are sawed in pieces. I had read the earlier reviews and agree it is easy to handle and safe... and important to read he instructions. I was inspired enough that when I got done with the branch on the ground, I got out a ladder and cut several branches off of another tree that was arching over our shed. I've only had this for a day, and used it for about 1.5 hours. But it did everything I expected it to, I found it easy to learn and use.

I have forty acres of trees to thin for pasture use and fire mitigation, mostly removing the lower limbs of Ponderosa pine trees. For the past ten years, I have been doing it all with a hand saw, and getting nowhere. I am sixty years old now, and wear out easily. This saw keeps going for an hour and a half, longer than I can, and it rips through large branches that have haunted me for years. It will fit in tight areas that even the hand saw has trouble getting into. I love this saw!
