Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jace Battery Life is the only negative
Love this tool , however the battery literally lasts max 10 min . It also stalls due to the fact it ( the battery ) gets hot rather quickly during use . I spend more time charging the battery than I do using the tool .

Easy quick and works well. This beats the heavy hard to start and cumbersome chain saws for most yard trimming and pruning.

Loving the worx cordless jawsaw. I took down approximately 30 small trees at my mother's house with ease. This product is a winner.

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?

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.
