Worx is another brand that may be unfamiliar to consumers outside of the home and garden world. They make affordable gear just like Greenworks and Remington, and the Worx WG309 caught our eye due to its mix of power and affordability.
This extendable pole saw is built for light-duty use around your home although it can cut through larger limbs as long as they aren’t too tough. It has a 10-inch bar and chain, but only an 8-amp motor so it’s a bit of a mixed bag in that regard. The build quality isn’t what we would consider top-tier although it is on the same level with any other electric pole saw in this class. There is lots of plastic…
How high can it go?
Not that high actually so it’s not what we would consider a long reach chainsaw. The extension pole gives you a total reach of 10 feet but does have a unique trick. When you’re not cutting timer overhead, you can detach the saw from the pole and use it as a traditional chainsaw. Needless to say, it’s far more than a chainsaw on a stick and won’t weigh you down like an industrial model would.
In addition to its convertible nature, the head angles on this saw to give you an extra measure of control when it’s attached. The Worx WG309 has an automatic oiler and an easy to read oil level indicator as well. It weighs 10 pounds, and the chain pitch is set to 3/8” with 40 links and a top cutting speed of 28 feet per second. You’ll need oil and an extension cord, but the saw is essentially ready to roll out of the box assembly-wise.
The WG309 may not have the sheer power of other saws, but you’re getting a 10-inch bar along with features like tool-less tensioning and an automatic oiler. Unfortunately, this one appears to be liberal with the oil so you may experience some leakage. The set includes the saw, an 8-foot extension pole, manual and blade cover. It comes with a 30-day guarantee and a 3-year warranty against defects.
