Charlotte, NC ─ The new WORX® 40V, 14 in., Power Share Chainsaw is power-packed and features a high-efficiency, maintenance-free brushless motor for dependability and long service life. The cordless chainsaw also is equipped with exclusive WORX features, such as automatic, tool-less chain tensioning and automatic chain lubrication.
In fall, many homeowners need to deal with tree damage due to storms and high winds, not to mention stockpiling firewood for winter. Typical yard chores might include cutting branches that are broken, leaning against the house, hanging over walkways or interfering with other branches. Limbs also should be removed if they are dead, diseased or infested with insects. Large, overgrown shrubbery also should be thinned.
The 40V, 14 in., Chainsaw definitely is up to all of the above tasks. This hi-tech saw features a brushless motor with electronically controlled power distribution, which increases battery run time over standard brushed motors. Because carbon brushes are eliminated, the motor is maintenance-free. In addition, the highly efficient motor produces less heat, friction and wear, resulting in a more durable motor and greater performance. Since less energy is wasted, battery power lasts longer.
The chainsaw is powered by two, 20V, MAX Lithium, 2.0 Ah batteries that combine to deliver 40V of power. Battery charge levels can be quickly checked by pressing an electronic keypad onboard the saw. The chainsaw comes with a dual-port, 60 min. charger.
As part of the WORX 20V Power Share program, the chainsaw’s batteries are interchangeable with all other WORX 20V lawn and garden and DIY tools, creating cost savings and convenience.
The 40V 14 in, chainsaw also includes the patented WORX Auto-Tension system. When the operator turns a large dial on the saw’s body, the system automatically sets the proper chain tension to prevent over-tightening. This convenient, auto-tensioning innovation not only saves time and effort, but also helps extend bar and chain life.
The chainsaw’s automatic oiler system includes a reservoir with an oil level indicator, showing when a refill is needed. Constant lubrication is provided to both the bar and chain during operation.
A quick-stop chain brake helps prevent accidental cutting and allows the operator to stop the chain immediately before setting down the saw or moving to another location. The brake handle is designed for easy activation, whether the saw is held vertically or horizontally.
The 40V chainsaw weighs only 10.38 lbs., making it easy to maneuver. A soft-grip on the rear handle improves the operator’s control and helps reduce fatigue. The 14 in. bar has a reduced-kickback chain with a 3/8 in. pitch and cutting speed of 26 ft./sec.
The eco-friendly cordless chainsaw is emission-free and has low operating and maintenance costs, compared to gas-powered models. There’s no pull-cord, gas tank to fill, oil to check, spark plug and filters to replace, or loud motor noise to annoy the neighbors.
The WORX 40V 14 in., Power Share Chainsaw (WG384, $199.99) includes two, 20V MAX Lithium batteries a 20V, dual-port charger and bar/chain sheath. It is covered by the WORX three-year limited warranty and is available at www.worx.com and Amazon.
