Product Description

The WORX JawSaw electric limbing and trimming chainsaw is the perfect tool for storm debris or tough pruning jobs. The JawSaw takes the hassle out of using an ordinary chain saw, while making heavy-duty limb and brush clean-up safe, quick and easy. With the included Extend pole, the JawSaw is two tools in one! Forget the ladder -- the extension pole attachment, extends the JawSaw's reach up to 12-feet, making it perfect for pruning and cutting hard-to-reach limbs. The extension pole requires no tools to attach and can be removed in seconds. The WORX JawSaw is powered by electricity, so it produces no noxious emissions. Different from gas-powered chain saws, our electric JawSaw doesn't require you to mix oil and gas or deal with difficult start-ups. It also . It also features an automatic oiler that provides constant lubrication to both the bar and chain.

Customer Reviews

It's fairly heavy though so when attached to the extension handle it is a little hard to lift.
Marshallite
On a positive note, it does a great job cutting and makes short work of trimming as long as branches are no too high in the tree.
Wayne
The infomercial shows them using the JAWSAW like a one handed toilet plunger cutting multiple branches at a time.

I bought the JawSaw after I saw the infomercial because I had some trees at our restaurant and in our yard that I wanted to trim. I already have a chain saw, but I was attracted to the extension pole as a means of reaching branches that I couldn't reach with my current chain saw. I figured the $149 purchase price was a reasonable investment because it was less than the tree trimmer would charge me.
The JawSaw seems to be well-constructed and is able to cut through branches that are up to 4 inches thick. Unlike a standard chain saw which has an exposed blade, the JawSaw protects the user from potential harm by recessing the saw inside the jaws. The cutting ability is limited to a 4-inch cut because of the fixed size of the jaw opening. I also used the JawSaw to cut through tree roots that were exposed at ground level. However, the JawSaw is surprisingly heavy, despite the fact that it is electric and has no gas tank. This is especially true if the extension pole is used. I work out with weights regularly, yet my shoulders were very sore for 2 days after using the JawSaw to trim just 2 large trees. In fact, I elected to wait until the following weekend to trim the other trees.
Another shortcoming in the design is the need to pull on the shaft and push on the handle to make the saw move/slice through the opening of the jaw opening. You don't really see this in the infomercial. This required action is difficult and reduces the actual reach (with or without the extension pole) because one hand needs to be on the shaft grip, which cuts down substantially on the overall reach. Lastly, because of the location of the motor and jaw structure, it is difficult and cumbersome to make neat cuts in tight spaces within the tree.
Overall, I would recommend the product but only with the understanding of its design shortcomings.

I purchased the JawSaw to use in combination with my gas chain saw to prune several trees damaged by a recent storm. Some of the branches were 20' off the ground and I won't climb a tree with a conventional chain saw. Since none of the high branches were over four inches in diameter, it looked like the JawSaw, powered by my generator, might be what I needed to get the job done. Here's what I found...

Pros:
For those concerned this is some sort of toy, it's not. It will readily cut through any branch that fits in its jaws and it seems built well enough to serve the homeowner for years.

It's extremely safe compared to any other chain saw, or even a hedge trimmer. Almost anyone could operate it and still have all their body parts afterward.

Using the saw without the extension is just about as easy as it looks on TV (which is to say "very easy"). Also, as shown on the infomercial, the jaws work well at preventing the blade from touching the dirt. This allows the user to quickly cut-up limbs lying on the ground, without the risk of dulling the blade.

Cons:
When used with the extension handle the saw is very top-heavy and clumsy. It's Ok for a few branches but you'll quickly tire of using it in this manner. I usually found it easier to climb higher in the tree and use the saw alone. Still, for the price difference, it pays to get the extension, as it did come in handy a few times.

Summary:
In general, it works great for what it's designed to do. Although it cuts slightly slower than a gas chain saw, it's much safer and easier to use. I'd buy it again.

The JAWSAW absolutely works as advertised. Those who are complaining about it taking too much pressure on the handle need to go back and reread the instruction book. It tells you, "WARNING: DO NOT force the cut. Let the chain pull through the wood." Sure you have push some, but not so much as to force the cut. I was cutting dead limbs from an apricot tree, and believe me, that wood was hard as a rock. The JAWSAW handled it just fine.

There are some amusing discrepancies between the infomercial and the instructions, such as; "Use both hands to grip saw firmly" and "Never cut two branches at once". The infomercial shows them using the JAWSAW like a one handed toilet plunger cutting multiple branches at a time. Maybe they just mean not to cut more than one 'overhead' branch at a time. Anyone with an ounce of common sense will quickly figure out what you can and can't do. As others have stated, it can't get into tight places, but when it comes to what this saw does do, it does it very well.

I haven't tried it with the extension pole just yet, and I can see how that might be a bit cumbersome and heavy. I would think once the teeth on the jaws have gripped the branch the JAWSAW will hold its own weight through the completion of the cut. But once the cut is finished, get ready to hold up the saw again... another warning spelled out in the instructions. Do people ever read the instructions?

I complained about the order taking too long to send, and they sent the next day. This thing is amazing. It has clawlike extensions that you place around the branch, which insures your safety. Push a button, and the chain saw lowers and does the work with absolutely no effort. I have no idea how it will work when the blades get some use, but for now, it is truly unbelievable. I have had about 35 to 40 trees for 0ver 40 years. This is the easiest trimming I have ever been able to do. It has its limits. 4" due to the claws. Also, can not get close up and precise. No close cuts and can't fit between close brances. But what it does do, it does beautifuly. I am in awe. No kick what so-ever. The only kick I found, was it is a enjoyable kick of using it. I actually had fun pruning. Cutting up the falling branches was a cinch.
