Customer Questions & Answers

Is this cainsaw easy to start for a left handed person?

I am left handed and have trouble with many chainsaws when trying to pull them. How is this one?
Asked by: Mommie
i own a firewood company and have several saws of different sizes. here's a trick for y'alls: instead of putting your foot on the saw and pulling the cord out, lift the saw up by the handle to your chest while holding the rope and then push the saw downward still holding the rope up. let gravity do the work instead of wearing yourselfs out yanking endlessly on the cord.

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?
Asked by: SamIam

Why does this chainsaw weigh so much? Why do you have to keep pulling on the SHORT rope like 30 times to start it? Why is it when it does start and you press the gas it stalls out?
Asked by: AU
I have no idea why the saw weighs what it weighs. When I follow the starting instructions mine starts right up, hot or cold. Better than my Husqvarna. I do not know why pressing the trigger causes it to stall. I found if i press quickly it will rev right up but sometimes it stalls when releasing the trigger. I agree that is very annoying.

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 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.

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.

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 have read some horrible reviews but because of my budget this seemed to be the best “bang for the buck.” It’s first test was a downed oak tree. It went through it like butter! The only issue I had with this saw was a necessity to tighten the chain half way through the day long tree cutting project and that would be expected using any chain saw. I have 8 more downed oak trees to go and if this saw continues to perform like it did on this one I will be adding another review giving it more kudos. I know this is Husqvarna’s economy brand and I think they did a great job.

Out of the box I filled it with fuel and then primed the bulb 30 or so times until it filled up with fuel. It did take a while to get the fuel system primed, but that's what it took. I put it on full choke and then pulled the rope until I heard it fire. I switched to half choke, and then pulled the rope and it started and went into fast idle. My first pull of the rope after switching it to half choke and it ran good. Throttle felt good and engine responded nice without bogging or hesitation. Now for the bad news. After cutting 3 passes on a downed tree, all seemed good. I went to cut a standing tree, and half way through, the engine bogged and then quit almost like it ran out of fuel. I checked the tank and it had plenty of fuel. I pulled the rope several times and it would not start. I set it to full choke and it fired. I switched it to half choke and it fired right up and revved nicely so I preceded to cut. After 10 seconds or so it bogged and quit . I had to repeat the process of cut/bog/quit... full choke/half choke/run... to only have it cut/bog/quit. I was so bother by this BS that I neglected to pay attention to the blade tension which caused it to jump off the chain bar. This was my fault, I should have kept an eye on it but it didn't help my mood of the stalling problem. I am going to try to see if I can adjust the low high screws to see if I can resolve this but I really didn't want to have to mess with this BS. It's suffering from fuel starvation this I know, but the question is: Could the factory carb adjustment be off? could it be a defective fuel filter causing poor fuel flow? Could the fuel filter inside the tank be stuck on something not allowing it to drop to the low part of the tank when tilting the saw?
