Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jdy2 Not too impressed
We bought a hedge trimmer online because we thought it was reasonably priced. I used it for an hour or so and the exhaust was overpowering. I don't think it burns very clean. I tried to return it online, but realized after calling customer service that I would have to go visit a Poulan authorized dealer, and then they could only return it if there was something wrong with it, and poor quality somehow does not qualify as 'wrong.' I believe that a successful company stands behind their product, and Poulan Pro has not stood behind theirs. So now I have a hedge trimmer that I don't want to use and that I can't return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gina51560 Great Product
This trimmer is better than I expected. Easy to start but a bit heavy. The performance trumps the weight. Had a 10ft span of fence that was overgrown and it only took about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes to cut it all down. Wish I had this years ago. Would recommend this product to the world. Thanks Poulan

This hedge trimmer has lots of power, more power than any electric trimmer I have ever owned and very convenient with no electrical cord to drag around.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by aufrankie So far a good product
Easy to crank, must have 40:1 tank for fueling. Cuts up to 3/4" branches well. Used for 3 hours straight with no issue right out of the box. Weight may be an issue with prolonged use. Gas tank did not stall when cutting vertically. However, package delivered looking like it had been thrown down stairs. Had to really look at and operate it to make sure functionality was still there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by howvood works fine, but...
This is my second gas-powered hedgetrimmer, the first was smaller and worked fine but struggled when it came across a larger branch. This one chews through them all. It starts well, runs well and re-starts well. But, like other reviewers mentioned, when using it right-handed, the exhaust is directed directly into the face. I think some sort of deflector is called for.
For reasonably priced, homeowner products, Poulan has the competition whipped.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oldman Over grown hedges
I previously tried an electric trimmer but it was too weak to trim boxwood and was not too efficient on some other species. I had hip problems and did not trim for two years and hedges got out of control. After hip replacement I got this product and quickly got my hedges under control. That included trimming some red cedar trees. I wish I had purchased this when the hedges were small so I could have always kept them under control.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by whodart Good trimmer, hard to get right replacement parts
The trimmer works great, easy to handle. It will break a tooth out of a blade if you hit a rock or something harder than the blade. If you try to order replacement blade be careful. The upper and lower blades have the same part number, and the parts diagram shows them to be one unit, both blades. But if you order just one of that part number, you only get the lower blade. Calling Poulan on the phone for information is a nightmare too.
Vendors (unmentioned) are as bad as that, or at least the one I had misfortune to deal with.
