Are fuel mixes universal?

I just bought a Husqvarna leaf blower that requires a 2-cycle fuel mix ratio of 50:1 along with a quart of Husqvarna brand 2-cycle pre-mix fuel. Can I use that mix for this Poulan chainsaw?

At first had a hard time getting it started, finally got it going, cut a limb up that had fallen and shut the saw off. tried to restart, ha the thing did the same thing, hard to start. After I got it started cut down the shaft of the tree, cut great. I was cutting the tree shaft up and the engine shopped, tried for about 15 minutes to get it restarted, even with a shot of starting fluid, nope would not start. took it back to HD. I asked the guy over power equipment if they had this problem before, yes many times most are returned. said Poulan has never fixed the issue. Piece of junk. Bought an ECHO started each and every time, spend the extra 100 buck and be happy with a ECHO.

The Poulan saw I got 12 years ago did the same thing. My new Poulan Pro was also hard starting. The problem is the fuel mixture is set up lean to comply with emition standards. Out in the real world we down have the luxury of a controlled manufacturing setting where the temperature is always the same. What I did to solve the issue with both saws was to turn both the low and hi speed jets 1/3 turn counterclockwise. That set the mixtures just rich enough to let them both start easily. I have done this for friends that have the same saw. The carb adjustment tool can be had for around $5 online. I love both my Poulan saws. I have had a bad year with multiple trees coming down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this chainsaw!! I'm pretty big on reviews for items and if you look through the hundreds of reviews for this you really get a bad taste in your mouth. I couldn't tell if the saw was just genuinely bad or If people are genuinely stupid. I'm pretty handy but never used a chainsaw before this purchase. I read through the instructions quickly, purchased some bar and chain oil, mixed the gas, and this thing fired right up. I made the rookie mistake of not tightening the chain after the first 30 minutes so it fell off, and it took me 5 minutes to put it back on. I have had this for about a month. I have cut close to 40 decent size trees down on my property and chopped them up. This saw starts great every single time. No more than 3 pulls. It's pretty light compared to others. Plus it comes with a sick hard shell case. If you can read a few directions, keep this thing full of lube, and make sure you prime and choke before starting, this is the saw for you.

The chainsaw broke the first time that I used it (and no, it wasn't operator error). Issues with the company's website kept me from registering the product for warranty despite numerous attempts to do so. Giving up on doing it myself, I attempted to contact the company directly for assistance. I wasted a significant amount of time trying to find an option that actually allowed me to speak to a representative. While the chainsaw can be fixed, I won't deal with a company that provides lousy customer service. This is the last Poulan product that I'll buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage. My neighbor had one of these so I bought one as well due to our mature and dead trees. The day after my purchase he returned his because of the inability of the motor to keep running. Mine had a similar issue. Its two stroke, no clogs, the thing will run well for a few minutes then kill itswlf...spend the extra and go with something higher quality.

I purchase this model of Poulan with the hope that it would last for many years. I've had this saw for two years and have about ten hours of use on it. The fuel lid had to be replaced because it swelled up and couldn't be put back on. The fuel lines rotted out and had to be replaced (yes, I drained the fuel after each use), and now it starts and runs for a couple of minutes and then quits. I used to have a McCulloch chainsaw and it lasted over 20 years until a large branch fell on it. I'd have purchase another McCulloch but the people at HD told be that they went out of business.

I owned a McCullough chainsaw for 25 year and finally could not longer get parts for it. A tree blew down in my yard so I needed a saw quick and Home Depot is nearby. Well shame on me for not taking time to research this saw because it is truly awful. Very difficult to start hot or cold, tough to keep running, and stalls out if you apply full throttle. Obviously Poulan knows this is a problem because they reference Difficult Starting in their owner's manual and most of the Troubleshooting section of the manual addresses these issues. The final straw was last week when I went to replace the fuel filter. In the course of pulling out the old filter it pulled the inside of the connecting gas tube a part rendering it useless. Home Depot would not take it back after 30 days and I owned exactly one year. So I ended up tossing it in the trash which was truly my best day of ownership. What a piece of junk. Based on all the similar reviews Poulan should be embarrassed for ever putting should a lousy product onto the market. I will NEVER buy another Poulan product. Just bought a Stihl chainsaw and so far it runs like a dream. In this case you truly get what you pay for, and I wish I had not been in such a rush to get a chainsaw a year ago as I would have likely gone to the much better quality of a Stihl to begin with.
