Worx Jaw Saw Review
Worx Jawsaw – Claw Saw as Seen on TV
When my single female friend watched the infomercial for the worx jaw saw on TV, she said she had to have it. I went to her home and there she was out in the yard seemingly, effortlessly working the electric jaw saw. I said, “you’re working hard”. Her response was, “nope I’m having fun.”
The worx jawsaw does the work of a chain saw but it is much safer. Great for pruning, the worx jaw saw is able to cut up to 4 inch think branches. The scissor cut action limits kickbacks. The worx jaw saw offers a 5 foot pole extension to limit the need for a ladder, so you can stand safely on the ground.
When using chainsaws, safety is paramount. With a Worx JawSaw, the chain is covered by the blade guard which makes it really safe because you are protected from contact with the chain itself. Even if you use chainsaws all the time, accidents do happen, so knowing this is very safe is going to be reassuring. The chain cover does not impede the saw in any way; actually it works really well.
The steel teeth hold your work in place while you cut, and this offers a lot of stability, and there is even an auto-tension feature to set the correct tension. The blade is housed in such a way that cutting on the ground is possible, and the JawSaw is actually the only chainsaw in existence which allows you to cut heavy logs on the ground. Imagine how much easier that is than having to lift them up yourself. In addition to all that, there is an automatic chain oiler with an indicator for the oil level. The people at Worx really have thought of everything.

Worx Jaw Saw wg307
This is great to use and you can forget about the potential kickback you get with regular saws because this model is safe. The jaws grip whatever you want to saw through while the sharp blade cuts it. You get an extension pole too so you will not need a ladder. Any kickback just gets caught in the jaws. You will still have 10 fingers at the end of it! This is excellent for cutting medium-size branches (maximum 4 inches thick), trimming hedge or cutting under brush. The JawSaw is great if you have a lot of piled brush because it never hits the ground. The only surprising thing is why did nobody think to invent such a safe chainsaw years ago? This tool has many positive reviews. The only complaint is that the chain sometimes comes off but if you retighten the tension nut and run the chainsaw a few more times this should not happen again.
WORX WA0163 5-Foot Extension Handle for JawSaw WG307 and WG308
This extension handle fits on to your JawSaw and you can then use it to reach branches up to 12 feet. Take the extension off if you are trimming low branches or cutting on the ground, then slip it back on if you need some extra reach. The extension fits snugly and the styling is also nice. The comfort handle is indeed comfortable to use. Adding this extension does make your JawSaw a bit end-heavy but that is to be expected. This JawSaw 5 foot extension handle works well and allows you to trim high branches as well as low ones. This is a great accessory if you have a JawSaw.
WORX WG308 6-Inch 5-Amp Electric JawSaw with Extension Handle
This tool is much safer to use than a conventional chainsaw because the blade itself is recessed inside the jaws. This also comes with an extension pole so you can cut high-up branches without needing a ladder. This tool is reliable and fun to use. The limit for what you are cutting is 4 inches thick because that is how wide apart the jaws are, and you cannot get really up-close and precise like with a conventional chainsaw because this is not a conventional chainsaw. You are however swapping the danger of a conventional chainsaw for the safety of a Worx JawSaw and that is a great tradeoff. The only real drawback is that it is quite heavy, which should not bother people who are used to manual work or lifting heavy things, but it seem heavy for anyone with weak arms.

Other Handy Tools Everyone Needs
Not everyone needs a chainsaw, but there are quite a few tools which everyone should have. A hammer is not expensive but it is really useful and should feature in everyone’s toolbox. This has to be one of the greatest tools ever and it has many uses. Invest in a good claw hammer and it should last for life. A pair of pliers is also very useful. You can use pliers to grip and maneuver small objects. Pliers come in various sizes so you might want several pairs. Needle-nose pliers are the most used, but wire cutting ones and heavy-grooved pliers can also come in handy.
A multi-head screwdriver is another asset. So many things around you right now are held together by screws and you will have to tighten many of them during your lifetime. A multi-head screwdriver with various heads is a great addition to your toolbox. Something else a lot of people do not have but might need suddenly is a flashlight. Do you know where the nearest flashlight is if all the lights go out in your home? If not, get a good flashlight and make sure the batteries in it work.
Crescent 170-Piece Mechanics Tool Set
This is good enough quality for just about any task you wish to apply it too, and it is especially good if you are into DIY. If you are a professional mechanic who can afford it, then you might prefer some snap-on gear instead. This set includes plenty of well-organized tools. You get enough wrenches and sockets to get you by, in varying sizes. The one negative about this set is the plastic case because the tools are exposed when you open it and some might slip out of their spaces. Apart from that though, you do get plenty of hand tools and you can carry out pretty much any mechanical, industrial and DIY task or small job using this set. The lock-on sockets will not slip off during use and everything is high quality.
Stanley 94-248 65-Piece General Homeowner’s Tool Set
This is great for using around the house for general repairs, although the tools are not top quality. If you are looking for a budget set then this is very handy. You get most of the tools you need, although no wrenches for some reason. The plastic box the tools come in takes up a lot of space so you might find yourself transferring the tools in to another storage case or a bag. Strangely enough the case is closed with a screw so you need a screwdriver to open it! Choose this if you want a bargain set for around-the-house repairs, or pick something better if you are going to use your tool kit more often.

Works Hard and Keeps You Safe
One of the main reasons the Jaw Saw is so well-loved is of course because of how safe it is. If you had to think of dangerous items to use in the garden, a chainsaw is going to be one of the first to come to mind, which is why the Jaw Saw is such a godsend. You can do everything with it you would want to do with a chainsaw, but unlike a conventional model, it is safe because of how it is designed and made. The bar and chain are enclosed, so the risk of accidents is minimal. The auto-tension system is excellent too, because the tension is automatically set for you.
These features make the Jaw Saw not only safe for anyone to use, but also a great chainsaw for the novice or someone who does not have a lot of upper body strength. There is no kickback either because of the scissor-like action, and the chain oiler is built in, so that is something less to worry about.
If you are wondering how a Jaw Saw compares to a standard chainsaw, you will be pleased to hear most reviewers love this chainsaw because it is a real workhorse and makes sawing fun and easy. Even though sawing work might not be ‘fun’ exactly, this is the closest to fun you are going to get, because this piece of machinery really is a joy to use.
Reaches High and Low
You can forget the sore muscles and stiff back a heavy chainsaw usually gives you, and forget heavy lifting too, because a Jaw Saw is designed to operate directly on the ground, and it is probably the only chainsaw which you can claim that about. You will not need a ladder either, because this saw allows you to reach branches up to 12 feet high. The teeth of the blade housing enable you to guide the cut branches safely to the ground without any risk of accidentally dropping them.
A lot of people might doubt the efficiency of a chainsaw designed to be so safe, but it makes sense to choose this machine because it really does offer a great performance as well as the safety features, so you end up with a great machine and something you do not have to be worried about using.
