Compact and Lightweight
At only 10 lbs you can hold this pole saw up high for as long as you need to to get the job done. And while the 10” bar is long enough to tackle most backyard chainsaw tasks, it’s not so big that it’s hard to control. It’s a pole saw almost anyone can use.
Easy Attach and Detach
The pole connects quickly, and without the need for any tools. So you can cut down those problematic branches, then pop off the pole and use it like a regular chainsaw, and chop those branches up on the ground.

The safest way to keep your trees looking sharp, the Worx 10” – 8A Electric Pole Saw is a well-balanced chainsaw that you can easily hoist in the air. Or, take off the pole and use it for regular chainsaw projects down on the ground. It’s got a lot of bite for a 10” bar, and plenty of modern features that make it easy to use. With a 28 ft/s chain speed and advanced auto lubrication and tensioning systems, you’ll always have a powerful saw at your disposal. The oil level window lets you know when you’ll need to refill. And the auto tension knob will never let you turn too far to potentially damage the chainch This ergonomically engineered pole saw features a handle that rotates 180° so you can turn the whole saw on its side without having to turn your body. The pole attaches and detaches easily. The handguard protects you from falling debris. And an off/on switch on the bottom of the pole lets you start or stop the saw without bringing it up and down repeatedly. This is an electric chainsaw, so you don’t have to worry about all the downsides of gas-powered tools: This saw will be less expensive to run and maintain, cleaner for both you and the environment, and much quieter. This is 2 saws for the price of one. Plus, it’s the safer way to trim your branches.

That said, I've found this to be perhaps the most awkward and hazardous homeowner power tool I've ever used. This isn't a dink against WORX, but the product category itself.
Although it can extend to ten feet, for obvious reasons you do not cut while holding the pole in the vertical position. For safety with larger branches you would use it at maybe a 45 deg angle, at which point you get a physics lesson in the forces needed to hold steady a ten pound weight at the end of a ten foot pole. That works out to over 70 pounds of torque. Which is to say you'll need some strong shoulders to use this safely. That greater angle is important because branches do not always drop straight down. Depending what they get caught on, the heavy, cut end of the limb might swing right toward you.
Another gripe is that at longer extensions, the housing blocks your view of the blade. In many cases you literally won't be able to see what your saw is doing. I also found that pressing the trigger switch - safety button combination is a bit awkward for a leftie like me. It's designed for a right-handed person.
My greatest concern, alarm actually, is that it takes a full five seconds (I timed it) for the blade to stop moving once you've released the switch. It's not a dead man switch, and there is no chain brake. Five seconds is an eternity if you get yourself into trouble on a ladder with a ten inch chain saw waving around over your head at the end of a ten foot pole. This is the primary reason for the three star rating.
As for using the saw by itself hand-held, without the pole, I find it works smoothly and comes in handy. For much of the work of breaking down tree branches once on the ground however, I prefer an alligator style electric saw a bit better. Those are just all around easier to use with smaller branches.
Absolutely the STUPIDEST thing I’ve ever seen! Total fail from minute one!!!
The saw does need chain oil which is not included. The chain needs to be tightened before the first use, simply turn the bright orange knob and you're good. The chain did come off once but it was due to hard wet oak and all that was needed was to loosen the tension, reseat the chain and tighten again. The instruction book could have been easier to understand. The saw is very easy to use and figure out but the book was a little confusing.
Yes the saw is top heavy on the poll. Anyone who understands physics should know an 8 pound saw on an 8 foot poll is going to be heavy. However the saw's own weght can push it down through the limbs. Just be careful to know your limits and not let the saw fall when it cuts through.
I had it on and off the poll all day with jo major issues. It paid for itself already.
One tip- as the saw nears the bottom of the branch and weight of the branch becomes too much for the remaining uncut wood to support, the bottom of the branch will tend to rip as the branch falls before the saw has completed it's cut. This results in a stump on the tree that is neither aesthetically pleasing nor healthy. The simple solution is to make a cut about a foot further from the trunk than you ultimately want the branch to end, then go back and cut off the last foo,t. Since there will be no branch weight pulling down the stump, the second cut will leave a smooth perfect end. And since the saw goes through even a thick branch in seconds, this is much less difficult than you may think.
Also- watch out for the weight of the saw coming down at the end of the pole as the branch falls. Again, some upper body strength will be needed. Nothing an average guy in good condition can't handle, though.
I cut down several dozen branches off of various mesquite and palo verde trees, maybe 60 or 70, then dragged them all into a pile. Once there, I converted the pole saw to a chain saw, snugged up the chain, and went to work slicing them into shorter lengths, suitable for loading onto a trailer for disposal. The chain saw is light, agile, and powerful. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the job it did. Even working in the 100 degree Arizona heat, I actually enjoyed the work. So much so, in fact, that I decided to completely removed a dying palo verde tree outside my fence. The chain saw was even more amazing for this job, slicing through the multiple trunks easily. Some of these trunk were about 10 inches in diameter, and none took more than ten seconds to completely cut through.
Through all of this the automatic oiler worked flawlessly, keeping the blade lubricated while throwing only a tiny bit of oil (something that any chain saw will always do if properly lubed).
My takeaway- if you're in the market for a corded chain saw, do not hesitate. Just hit Buy Now. You won't regret it!
In fairness, I do have one CON to mention. On my particular saw, the automatic chain tensioner did not work at all. Looking at it, I cannot see how it could possibly tighten the chain. That would require some sort of spring loaded mechanism to automatically extend the chain bar, which this saw does not have. It can prevent the chain bar from retracting, but as the chain stretches, it will inevitably loosen. I do not consider this a reason to deduct a star, however, since manually tightening the chain every 10 or 15 cuts kept everything working flawlessly. Snugging the chain is pretty simple- just loosen the big orange knob that holds the chain bar in place and hold the (unplugged!) saw by the chain bar, with the motor part hanging down. The weight of the saw will pull the chain to the perfect tension, and with your free hand you can tighten the orange knob again. Takes maybe ten seconds.

That said, this unit had good reviews, so I am thinking all of these cheap consumer grade pole saws are lame. The concept is good, but execution; not so much. I returned it after trying it out one time. Suspect old fashion manual pole saw would work as well, or better, and certainly for less cost. That's where I am headed.
