Poulan 14"
Have used variuos chain saws for many years. This product worked for the first couple tank fulls, then it was very hard to get started, and now will not start at all. Changed plug, fuel and filters still not starting. Save yourself the aggravation. Will not purchase or recommend Poulan produts again.

Inexpensive and still fits my needs

I was looking for a basic chainsaw to take along on ATV trails. I wanted something in the 14" range, lightweight and inexpensive. I have no need for a big 18" or 20" chainsaw. This Poulan 14" saw fit the bill. I had the saw shipped to the house. Once I took delivery I gassed it up and the saw started right up. No issues whatsoever. My only wish was that it had the antivibration handle. That is a nice feature to have. Not really a complaint because I knew it didn't have it before hand.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I would expect a new chainsaw to start with just a few pulls. This machine starts hard...every time so far. My arm gets tired.

Poulan Chain Saw

The chain saw would not crank. We took it back to sears and ask the service dept to try to crank it. They could not crank it so they gave us another one. It would not crank either and we took it back and they gave us a refund. We went to ********** and bought a Homelite. I would rate it worse then poor if it would let you.

Poulan saw is a small gem

I was concerned when my Poulan locked up the second time I tried to use it, more so when Sears wanted $80 to verify it was a product defect. It was repaired free under warranty and has worked great for several months. The chain has retained its cutting ability without sharpening.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Small, but efficient

The Poulan 14" chain saw is easy to use, lightweight, and affordable. While I do not cut down trees often, this chain saw allows me to do so without breaking the bank. However, I do recommend the Repair Protection because the Carburator needed work and the manufacturer does not cover this. Since I recieved what I paid for, the extra expense is worth the piece of mind. Thank you.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Poulan 33cc Chain Saw works with quirks...

Takes time and patience to get this saw started. Once started the saw had a very high idle & the chain would spin with out giving it gas. According to the instructions the chain should not turn from just idiling. However if I turn down the idle the saw cuts off when cutting unless you keep feathering the gas to keep it from dying out. After about three times of dying out on me I settled for the higher idle and the chain spinning as I could continue with out having to keep restarting the saw.

does what is expected well

Unit works as designed this is my second as the first lasted 5 seasons before the primer bulb & plastic tubing that carries gas began to crack and get brittle ...even Though it was drained when not in use ...unrepairable but had lasted several seasons unfortunatly this was made to be disposable and not repaired. the cost of ownership was less than $20 a year all considered.

Most of my Poulan 33's have been short lived

I think I'll stop buying these.  Ten years ago I started cutting and sectioning about six 10" ponderosa pines a year from my small acreage, to heat our home.  These were great little saws that would last about a year before the pull-rope mechanism would jam or break, or the saw would not start or whatever.  Now, ten years later I am 65 years old and I'm still wearing them out or breaking them.  These things just aren't lasting til next season. I've always been super careful in the gas/oil mixture, never let the chain-oil run out.  But, I figure I've spent about $650 on these $109 saws, all from Sears over the past ten years.  I prefer their light weight, small form for maneuverability, etc.  But it's just a heartbreak to buy a good machine and not find it worth repairing after just several trees.  I'm going to check out Sears' top-line saws next, and buy the maintenance agreement, because apparently we don't really buy these saws, it feels like we just rent them til they die.  (Added NOTE:  Appears Sears won't accept these reviews unless we sign up for spam mail?)

Came at a great time after a bad storm

I have never used a chain saw to be honest of hearing horror stories. After a bad storm I had several big limbs down and didn't feel like using an ax to do the work. I paid $110 for this good chain saw. It came with one small bottle of mixing oil 2 cycle for the gasoline. The chain was suppose to lubricate itself according to the book. I opened the bar oil compartment and there was no bar oil at all. I called the 800 number and spoke to a representive and he said it will work without oil go for it. I am glad I hesitated and went to a local hardware store and asked an older gentlement who had experience with a chain saw. I bought some bar oil and it worked great. If only it would have hauled all the wood alway for me.

does what it's made for

Is good for cutting down smaller trees and cleaning up.  Don't expect much more because thats all a smaller chain saw like this is made for.  People complain about it but just like any other tool, if you use it for what it's made for it works fine.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
