The WORX WG308 6-Inch 5-Amp Electric JawSaw with Extension Handle is a good and powerful tool for maintaining trees, shrubs and bushes. It features a powerful saw and can be used to trim trees with high limbs and debris on the ground. It has some good safety features which add to its appeal.
Corded electric pole saws have the advantage of being powerful, lightweight, and easy to operate—all with a quick startup every time! They are also relatively easy to maintain and because they don’t use oil or gas you don’t get any nasty emissions polluting your airspace. Their biggest drawback is they usually require an extension cord. They’re also less powerful than a gas model. But you need to keep in mind that this is a yard tool, not a logging tool, so it doesn’t need to be ferocious to get the job done.
The WORX WG308 6-Inch 5-Amp Electric JawSaw with Extension Handleconsists of a jawsaw (a saw with a 4-inch maximum cutting length) and an extension pole that reaches limbs up to 12’ off the ground. Itweighs 11.7 pounds and has a 5-Amp electric saw with solid steel teeth that clamp onto the wood while you cut it. It’s also fitted with a jaw guard around the chain that acts as a cut guide while also keeping your fingers safe. Safety, the safe use of tools and their safety features should be a main and primary consideration for consumers. The single-bolt Auto-Tension system makes it a cinch to replace the chain or bar, while avoiding a common problem of accidently over-tightening the chain. The extension pole can be attached and removed in seconds, no tools required. In addition to pruning high-limbed trees, you can also use the WORX electric JawSaw to clear storm debris and make cuts to wood directly on the ground, safely and smoothly.
Additional feature to note: the saw includes an oiler that keeps both the bar and the chain lubricated at all times. This model comes with a 3.4-ounce bottle of chain oil and a wrench.
