cant beat these poulans
This saw is a workhorse of a saw. people complain about hard start, loose chains are apparently not experienced saw users and victims of ethanol diluted fuels. The fuels ruin the fuel lines and carb gaskets/diaphragms. If trees twist on your bar the chain will be loosened. I cut down a 55 year old hack berry tree and my 18" just kept coming back for more. the tree was 4 inches wider than my bar. these are all problems of improper technique and lack of experience. I have had my old poulan for 20+ years and my newest one for about a year. They both crank within a few pulls and run magnificently. A lot of saws have walbro carburetors and that is the heart of a chainsaw.these carbs require frequent rebuilding because of ethanol in the fuel. i use 100 octane airplane gas in mine or straight no alcohol fuel in mine to prevent the cracking of the fuel lines.if you want a good experience with your saw and you should, after all you paid for it, learn proper technique. Its all over the internet. ie. you tube. even if ubder other manufacturers names such as STIHL.

GREAT SAW
HAVE OWNED MY 4218 AVX FOR ABOUT 6 YEARS. I HAVE USED IT TO FELL 80 FT TREES, SAW CORDS OF WOOD. HAVE REPLACED THE CHAIN SEVERAL TIMES. IT WORKS, STARTS EASY YEAR AFTER YEAR. WHEN I STORE IT, I DRAIN THE GAS AND THEN FILL FRESH EACH SEASON

    Great Value
    Have had for a few years now and had no issues and have done no maintenance other than sharpen the chain or replace as needed. If you know how to operate a choke and warm up a 2 stroke engine, it will work great for you. It will.take a couple minutes to warm up when its sat for.months, but will stay running great after that. Keep your chain sharp and it will do great for a $160 saw.

      My poulan brake went out shortly after purchase and now the coil is fried. Spend a few extra dollars and get a Husqy or Stihl.

        Spend the extra money for a Husq or a Stihl. Purchased TODAY, used for 1 tank of gas. I set down to grab dinner and come back out to start and the starting cord snapped. Took apart, the plastic mechanism actually broke...not the cord. Luckily I purchased a plan...returning tomorrow for a Husq.

          Starts, Stops, Starts, Stop, Starts, Stops. I've used it once, after buying it last year. Finally got it going, cut for 5 minutes stops. This year just starts and stops after an hour, nothing done. JUNK!

            Starting issues
            Got what I thought was a good deal. Sometimes just won't start. Sometimes takes ten minutes of pulling. Would not recommend

              Great for price
              Saw works fine. The reason for start issues is ethanol gas in most cases. Spend the extra quarter and buy ethanol free gas. It will prevent strating issues. All mechanics know ethanol gunks up injectors on a car or carbs on a saw or mower. Ethanol is the reason for these starting problems. Some of the really expensive saws may tolerate ethanol but who puts ethanol in a really expensive saw. Get ethanol free gas and watch starting problems disappear. Trivia: which president do you think started ethanol in gas?

                Owned this for at least 5 years. Worked great. When experiencing problems that it won't start(common complaint). Check to see if you are getting fuel, check for spark, and check compression (use a compression tester). Putting your finger over the spark plug hole and feeling that you have compression is not a good indicator. If you don't have over 100 PSI, you have a major problem. For the cost of the parts and the time it takes to replace them, it's better to buy a new saw

                  I've never had a problem with mine. Don't get all the negative reviews.
