Charlotte, NC ─ The most noticeable feature of the WORX® Nitro 40V, 16 in. Chainsaw is the speed in which it cuts. This high performance 40V, 16 in. chainsaw with brushless motor cuts at 59 ft./sec., twice as fast as the WORX 40V 14 in. Chainsaw, WG384
Anchored by two, 20V, 4.0Ah Power Share PRO batteries, plus a high-efficiency, maintenance-free, brushless motor, it’s the fastest-cutting cordless chainsaw WORX has offered to date.
The 16 in. chainsaw can handle the tough jobs from felling trees to cutting logs for the fireplace. Stock up for winter with wood for fireplaces, fire pits and campfires. It’s also an asset when managing tree damage from storms and high winds, as well as overgrowth. It trims broken branches obstructing passageways or interfering with other limbs. Year-round, the saw can be recruited for removing dead or diseased tree limbs, overgrown shrubbery and other jobs in the landscape.
Powered by the new WORX Power Share PRO intelligent batteries, these power packs feature cell-cooling technology that enhances tool performance and extend run-times. Each battery cell is wrapped in thermoplastic to dissipate heat and provide impact resistance while maximizing power. Power Share PRO batteries are compatible with more than 75 other WORX 20V, 40V and 80V lawn and garden, DIY tools and lifestyle products for cost savings and convenience.
The WORX Nitro 40V chainsaw is equipped with a high-efficiency, brushless motor that runs 50 percent longer, provides 25 percent more power and is maintenance-free, compared to traditional brushed motors. The dependable brushless motor runs cooler with less friction and heat buildup resulting in smooth, reliable operation and extended tool life.
The 40V chainsaw is power-packed and provides gas-like performance to cut timbers up to 30 in. diameter. Its 16-in. bar has a reduced-kickback chain with a 3/8 in. pitch and a high-speed cut rate of 59 ft./sec. to deliver professional-grade efficiency and results.
Remaining battery runtime is checked by pressing the onboard battery charge level indicator. The chainsaw comes with a 4-amp, dual-port charger that brings both batteries to a full charge in 2 hours
The WORX Nitro chainsaw also provides a full complement of exclusive features, including tool-less chain tensioning and automatic chain lubrication.
Turning the large dial on the side of the saw sets the proper chain tension to prevent over-tightening. In contrast, standard tensioning systems usually require the operator to make repeated adjustments, using one or more tools. The WORX one-step, tool-less tensioning innovation not only saves time and effort, but also extends bar and chain life.
An automatic chain lubrication system includes a reservoir with an oil-level indicator that shows when a refill is needed. The reservoir’s capacity is 4.5 ounces. Constant lubrication is provided to both the bar and chain throughout operation.
The chainsaw’s 16-in. bar has a reduced-kickback chain. If kickback does occur, a quick-stop chain-brake stops the chain’s rotation immediately. The brake also 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’s handle is designed for easy activation, whether the saw is held horizontally or vertically.
The eco-friendly cordless chainsaw is emission-free and has low operating and maintenance costs, compared to gas-powered models. Also, there’s no pull-cord, gas tank to fill, oil to check, or spark plug and filters to replace.
The WORX Nitro 40V, 16 in. Chainsaw, (WG385) includes two, 20V 4.0Ah Power Share PRO batteries, a 20V, 4-amp dual-port charger and a bar and chain scabbard. It is available at canadiantire.ca. A bare tool version (WG385.9), minus the batteries and charger, also is available. The chainsaw is covered by the WORX five-year limited warranty.
