Harbour Freight 14 inch electric chainsaw

Well I gave the chainsaw a good workout and cut up a very large Chinese Elm tree. Had to cut some of the trunk from both sides. The saw had plenty of power and the blade was very aggressive and took very little down pressure. I had to cut a slot in the power plug to fit my cord. The switch was very hard to press and after about an hour of cutting, my hand was tired, so I wired the switch on, and just let it run and unplugged it to stop it. I know, dangerous, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. I'm going to take the switch off and put in a different switch. Other than the switch I like it so far.

I have a large gas Echo chainsaw (I forget the blade length now). It's a very good saw. But I wanted something a little easier to use and since I already had the battery from another Worx tool, I purchased their 14" electric chainsaw. We had a very big blow out here and there was a lot of tree damage.
I started out using that Worx saw and figured I'd switch to the Echo for the bigger stuff. That little 14" saw cleaned up the whole mess. After that, I went on their website and found that they make a pole extension for the same saw so I ordered that also.

I have another pole chainsaw but you can't take it down to just the saw to use without the poles on it. That pole for the Worx saw is way better. Very good saw.

Yes, run off anything 12v.

I used it extensively back in the 80's running old two tracks in the woods of Michigan in a Jeep.

A quick and easy way to clear a fallen tree in the path.

They were only made a few years.

And the only 12vdc chainsaw ever made.

Almost looks like my electric chainsaw.

But mine is 12vdc.

Uses romex and battery clips as the power cord, which makes it kinda stiff and unwieldy.

I've never seen a saw like that before. It could be run off of your truck battery, right? I have a 12V generator that I made. It has a 2.5HP Harbour Freight motor and a belt powered alternator. That would run a saw like that. I could show you a picture of it If you want. I run my saw with a 1200 watt generator. I used a gallon and a half, or maybe 2 gallons of gas, to cut up that tree.

Well I was gonna put on a different switch but in my nice warm shop and no heavy gloves and a sheet metal screw in the safety switch, the switch seems easier to hold down. You can see the screw in the picture. The switch seems to be too far forward from where your hand naturally wants to hold the saw, and from that position the switch is twice as hard to hold down. Maybe I'll wait till the next time to change the switch. I only cut wood once in a blue moon anyway. I just have a little shop and heat mostly with used oil. There are no close neighbors that would be bothered by the smoke, otherwise I would burn wood. I have a huge stock pile of wood if I need it.

I have had good luck with my HF electric chain saw, I keep it at camp in Nova Scotia so I don't have to deal with gas, I use a 100ft 12/3 cord, plenty of power. It feels strange when you take your finger off the trigger it stops immediately I am used to a gas saw that idles down slow so the chain stops. I know what you mean about the safety receptacle being hard to plug into, it is the same way on my wife's leaf blower, but I find if you squeeze it so it is out of round it will go.

I tried squeezeing it but maybe my plug was bigger than yours; so I cut it.

Ahh, I think your saw has a "hood" extending out over the extension cord end. And so you cutout part of that hood in order to connect them.

Exactly! I just made two cuts with a power saw and they plastic leaf that is left bends up enough to allow the female cord end to plug in. It's hard to see in the picture but there are two saw cuts.

On mine, I J.B. welded that silly safety button in the down position to eliminate hand cramps. TDF

You are right about the safety switch. I put a sheet metal screw in mine and now the switch seems easier to use. You can see it in the picture.

Same as on my electric blower. The use 2 prong round plugs that have about an inch or so of plastic that extends down around and past the prongs. Safety deal I guess in case there is a gap between the plugs. The 3 prong triangle end of an extension cord doesn't fit cause the tip of the grounding prong won't go in.

The engineer that designed the plug must be nuts! My cord wouldn't fit in the round female plug on the saw. Maybe I'll take a picture tomorrow.
By the way, my license plate number is 007!

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1929 McCormick-Deering 10-20 - by Randal Simmon. On July 4th 1998 my dad and I was sitting on the front porch when he said that he was going to sell his two 10-20's to a junk man. He said that the junk man was going to give him $500 for both of them but he hadn't received the money for them yet. So I went into the house and wrote him a check for $500 and bought them myself and said now they are mine. He had bought them about five years before thinking that he was going to restore them himself. After five years sitting in the barn, he changed h ... [Read Article]
