poulan chain saw

I'm interested in purchasing a poulan chain saw. No particular model in mind,
but would like some opinions on the brand.

Thanks

From my experience with Poulan, I would recommend their saws for the homeowner. Although the Poulan Pro has a more commercial application, They are still designed to be used for light duty. The only real problems (not associated to customer missuse or abuse) I have ran into was overheating after long use and problems keeping the chain tight on the Pro models. For the price you pay for one though, you can't beat the performance.

deanw is on the mark, they are a light, consumer-duty saw. I'd look at Echo or Dolmar if I were you...from a dealer.

I agree...a poulan would be OK for the occasional use, like pruning limbs and cutting up the occasional small tree. Anything more, and I would look at a better saw. Echo and Dolmar are excellent saws. Jonsered, Husquvarna (not the lower priced ones), and Stihl also have very good saws. There are others as well. Finding a brand with a dealer near you would be a good idea so you can get parts easily when needed.
