Summary: I bought 2 of them and they seem to be working just great. I hope they continue to go so. We use them in our haunted forest. They have been really wonderful about starting up when you need them to start.
Summary: I needed a light weight gas chain saw and this Poulan was just what I wanted. It was fully refurbished and works as it should. I have two other larger chain saws and I am using this Poulan as a training/teaching saw for my son. I am very happy with the quality of this Poulan saw.
Summary: I needed a light weight, compact saw to trim small branches, brush and hedges. My arms give out quickly when I use my larger saw. This one is easy to use when side cutting. It uses very little gas and chain lube. Got it for $75 bucks!
Summary: I GUESS IT IS A GOOD DEAL FOR THE PRICE SINCE IT COST ME ONLY LIKE 74 BUCKS. NEXT TIME I WOULD ONLY CHOOSE A LONGER GUIDE SINCE THIS HAS A 14 INCH MY NEXT WOULD BE A 18 INCH AT LEAST.. CHAIN DOES GET LOOSE OFTEN AND SO I NEED TO STOP AT SOME POINT AND, LOOSEN UP THE NUTS TO STRECH THE CHAIN AND START OVER AGAIN...
Summary: A windstorm blew a tree >14in dia against my home. I bought the saw to remove it For its length of bar, this saw is a bit heavy & more difficult to maneuver than the Echo I used previously. It also needed carburetor adjustment right out of the box, though it did run.
