Summary: For the most part it is a nice little chainsaw for the money. I have two issues with it, however. One is it has a very rough idle. Also, at the same setting, sometimes the chain will stop during idle like it should, and at other times it wants to keep turning. Quite dangerous. I would recommend the Homelite which is comparable in price and size, but runs much better.
Summary: I came from Ghana and my country is forest zone in West Africa.My brothers are cocoa famers and it will help them to fell the big trees to make their farms easy. I will buy more to my friends when I have money to fell trees in their farm when going on holidays.
Poulan P3314 Chainsaw review. Hard to beat for the price!
9 January 2014
Summary: I am very happy with my Poulan chainsaw. I've owned Poulan chainsaws in the past and I am used to operating that particular brand. The one I bought was a re-furb and it was a bargain! I have used it many times and am very pleased with the performance. Some reviewers write that it was "hard to start"...I would argue that they just aren't experienced at starting chainsaws. As far as chainsaws go, it is just as easy to start as any of them!
Summary: Bought this even though there were some negative reviews. This was a reconditioned item. Used it for several tree trimming jobs, and it performed like a champ. I think the problems people have with chain saws in general is a lack of knowledge of how to use and maintain them. At the price purchased, even one season of use is well worth the cost.
