Toronto, ONT ─ Punishing storms, fallen trees, dead tree limbs are no match for the WORX® Nitro 40V, 16 in. Chainsaw. This fast-cutting saw outfitted with a high-efficiency, maintenance-free brushless motor and two 20V 4.0Ah Power Share Pro batteries is an asset at home or the worksite.
It’s not just in fall when homeowners contend with tree damage from storms and high winds, as well as overgrowth. Removal of dead, diseased or insect-infested tree limbs is a common occurrence. Dense overgrown shrubbery should be periodically thinned out as well. Stockpiling of firewood for fire pits, campfires and fireplaces are manageable tasks with the WORX Nitro chainsaw.
This fast-cutting chainsaw 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.
WORX Power Share PRO intelligent batteries feature cell-cooling technology that enhances performance and extends run-times. Each battery cell is wrapped in thermoplastic to dissipate heat, provide impact resistance and maximize power. Power Share PRO batteries are compatible with all WORX 20V, 40V and 80V lawn and garden, DIY tools and lifestyle products for cost-savings and convenience.
Battery charge levels can be quickly checked by pressing the battery’s onboard keypad. The chainsaw comes with a 4-amp, dual-port charger that brings both batteries to a full charge in 2 hours
The WORX Nitro 40V Chainsaw is equipped with an efficient and dependable brushless motor that produces 40 percent more power and provides 10 percent longer run time than standard motors. The brushless motor runs cooler with less friction and heat buildup than conventional motors with brushes, resulting in smooth, reliable operation and longer tool life.
The 16 in. chainsaw also provides tool-less chain tensioning and automatic chain lubrication. Merely turning the large dial on the side of the saw sets the proper chain tension to prevent over-tightening. The WORX one-step, tool-less tensioning saves time and effort, while extending bar and chain life.
An automatic chain lubrication system includes a reservoir with an oil-level indicator, showing 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 halts 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 vertically or horizontally.
The eco-friendly cordless chainsaw is emission-free and has low operating and maintenance costs, compared to gas-powered saws. Also, there’s no pull-cord, gas tank to fill, oil to check, spark plug and filters to replace, or loud motor noise.
The WORX Nitro 40V, 16 in. Chainsaw (WG385) includes two, 20V 4.0Ah Power Share Pro Batteries, 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.
