This item came in and it looked brand new.After filling with gas and bar oil the unit cranked up on the fifth pull.After that it always cranked on the first or second pull.I use it to cut fallen trees and limbs,so far it does an outstanding job.In my opinion it's a great saw for the price.
Received chainsaw that looked good but had signs of heavy use. It would not start. Took it to a Poulan repair center and told it had no compression. Workers said it was the third Poulan product that they got in with simular problems in recent weeks. Warned me that the Polan products were of very porr quality and the company lacked quality control in their power tools.
I BOUGHT THIS SAW TO USE AROUND MY HOME & ATV TRAILS ITS A NICE LITTLE SAW TO HAVE EASY TO USE . THINKING ABOUT GETTING ANOTHER ONE . VERY FAST SHIPPING .
I was skeptical of any daw at that price. Bought one. It looked new, assembled easily & started as well as any of the newer ones with all the OSHA - EPA features. I cut a load of firewood with it & it worked so well I ordered another one for a spare & one for my son-in-law. I would recommend getting one of the special carb adjustment tools at least if you are near sea level. The carns seem to be adjusted for fairly high altitude.
I bought a referbished poulan Pro 42cc with 18 " bar about a year ago. It ideled perectly but would not rev up. High speed needle was way out of adjustment. I did not have the special Poulan tool to adjust the high and low needles so I took the needles out and cut slots in them and then used a screwdriver to adjust the high speed needle. It's been running great ever since and I cut a lot of wood.
Also these chainsaws pump out way to much bar oil and will leave ya puddles if you fill the oil tank. I never fill the oil tank I add about an ounce or less of oil to the oil tank before I use it and it keeps the chain lubed for quite a while.
I think Poulan sold all these saws without doing a carb adjustment and got a lot of returns when most of them wouldn't run right. Mine has been a great saw once I tuned the carb. I also like the quick chain adjustment.
i bought a similar saw and used 3 times a week 2-3 hrs each time for 2 years
so of course i would buy another one
cheap for bars and chain thru wally
