Purchased this in November 2020, took over an hour to get it to start. Ran great for 3 days then put it away in shed for the rainy season. Pulled it out in March and it started right up and was running great for about an hour then shut down. Would not re-start for nothing. Had a local small engine repair look at it and was told it will cost more than what I paid for it. They did however at least checked for spark and said there was none. I contacted the 800 number for repairs and requested a New blower since it was to have a 2 year home warranty and I was refused, so I ask about ignition module, they charged a pretty penny for it and it took 3 weeks to come in. Still does not start, but has spark. I have over 10 hours trouble shooting everything from spark to compression and everything checked out. As of today 06/22/2021 it still will not start!!! Do not buy this leaf blower, Garbage!!!!! I will not buy another Poulan product or Husqvarna!!!!!
    Worked great for a few months
    Great blower the first year . It ran like a beast . I put stabil in it and ran in until the tank was empty before winter. Started right up this spring. It will run 5 minutes then die. It is very hard to start. I replaced the fuel filter and spark plug. when it dies it will not start for about 6 hours after wards. I wish i had the receipt i would return this and get an Echo

      Do not buy! Poulan worst ever!
      I Would like to give this zero stars..... I'm making it my mission to warn people about how poor these products are.... NEVER starts until you pull it for like 30 minutes.... then after a short while it shuts off and then that's it for the day! Won't start again. I've taken it back and they tell me it's "fixed"...ha! I have had several gas blowers and but far Poulan is the worst.... They plain just don't run! STAY far away..... DO NOT buy!

      Initially, the blower worked great and was easy to start. The second year it would lose power. It would run ok at lower power level. The third year it was very hard to start and after running 15-20 min. started losing power. Eventually, it would barely run above idle. Determined the problem was the fuel line inside the tank. It had disintegrated. While it was easy for me to fix, I'm sure it would have cost a lot to have it repaired at a dealer. The warranty expired at two years. Clearly. the fuel line was ani nferior material. It would be hard to trust Poulan in the future. I would look hard at an alternative.

        Not worth it, do not recommend.
        I have had this now for 4 years. The first year was okay, the second year it was difficult to start and full throttle would kill the engine but would work at medium strength. The third year I replaced the spark plug and it started a little bit better but not for long with the same problems contiued. Now into the first year I barely was able to use it three times and now it will NOT start no matter what I do.

          This is my third year trying to use this blower. First year was ok. Second year it was very hard to start and never able to go full power. By the way, blower was run dry at end of seasons. This year it won't even pretend to start. Spoke with a couple of service companies and they said it would cost more to look at it and fix. Their suggestion was to buy a new one. Wish I could, social security disability isn't that generous.
