This saw is the hardest thing in the world to start. I have about 45 min run time on it. I've just spent 20 min attempting to start it. I've had enough of the this thing. I'm going to go get a real chain saw and use this one as a boat anchor.
I now have two of these little wonders. They start up easily and are great on gas. My first P3314 (14 inch) has been used for 5 years and still cuts like a hot knife through butter. Good chainsaws!!! They are light weight and easy to handle.
Bought this product about one month ago. It would not start straight out of the box. Took it back to the store and they finally got it running after numerous tries. Took it home still could not easily start it. Took it to the authorized repair center and they finally got it running and they also said to run it so that it can break in. Used it for approximately three hours and the machine brake sarted smoking when idling. Poulan warranty servive refused to repair item under warranty and their customer service was not helpful at all. Have to replace this chain saw after minimal use.
lost the reciet walmart looked it up by serial number its well with in the year of service no luck with the company the oil tank leaks does not run right go buy a steel saw do not waste your money on these products
I am extremely pleased to own the Poulan 2025 Chain Saw. This small but powerful saw is easy to use, light weight but yet durable enough to cut even some of the larger trees and branches. I would highly recommend this saw to everyone and all who is looking for a saw for use around the house or camp site. If and when this saw wears out, I will definitely be buying another one. Thank you Poulan for creating such a great tool with a great price.

This 14" chainsaw does all the jobs I want to do on my 5 acres of 6-16 " SPF trees including cutting about 1 to 3 chords of firewood, and any windfalls during the year. I find it cuts and handles at least as well as my previous Poulan 2050, which I had to replace due to the need for a carburettor replacement which was no longer available, according to my local supplier/ repair shop. It was otherwise still viable. However I find the ignition and choke control knobs on the P3314 smaller and less easy to operate.
Great value for what the saw is intended for. Pulled it out of the box filled it with bar oil and 40:1 fuel and it started right up after 3 pulls. I let the saw run to warm up then proceeded to cut down 4 small tress 6-8" inch in diameter approximately 15-20' ft high (2 cedar and 2 pine trees)..... No issues no stalling..... Plenty of power not even full throttle. Reviews can be misleading, you can purchase a lemon. I noticed the full tank on my p3314 smelled like full so I'm sure it was factory started. I seriously doubt every saw that leaves the factory is. On the other hand I will tune the low idle on the carb and purchase a NGK plug. If I had a issue with the saw it would be the plastic bar oil chamber located at the front of the saw... I don't like plastic, we shall see how this works out..... But remember this saw is not intended for large tree felling, I have my larger "big boy saw" for that. I purchased this saw to clean up and saw smaller pieces for fire wood (limbs no bigger than 10" inch) and also pruning my grandfathers apple trees and back yard jungle. Hope you enjoy....
THE best chain saw I ever owned easy to start easy to use . I'm sold on poulan they are the first brand I bought , brand new , when I was 19 oniy brand i ever bought since still have that saw an still runs just needed a light weight one would highly recomend . oh yea I'm 62 now later a have agood year ha
My main complaint is the difficulty in getting it started. I follow the starting instructions exactly and eventually after a lot of cranking and waiting and then trying again it will usually eventually start. But it is frustrating. In comparison, I have a Homelite leaf blower which usually starts on the first few cranks. I have had the chainsaw since August 2011 but don't use it a lot.
I have the Wood Shark but I've had it for over 7 years now. I don't use it a lot but it's ready when I do need it. My wife and I like to relax by a fire and this saw works great for cutting up wood for our fire pit. I've used this to take down small trees from 3-6 inch diameter never lagged. Every once and a while the chain loosens and needs to be tightened up. It has always started up without any problems and runs like a champ. This saw gets occasional use about 20 times a year or so. I love this lightweight saw and recommend it to anyone. The only problem I have is that the bar oil leaks all over my garage floor, at least it's not plugged lol.
bought this chainsaw a year ago to do some clean up around my farm. This past weekend we had a major storm come through our town which caused a lot of trees to fall or up root. I used this little shark to cut trees up to 24 inches thick. This saw is definately a shark. 15 trees cut and only used 1 gallon of gas mixture and saw is still going strong.
This saw has been a life saver on my 60 acres. Property is full of autum olive hedge and red rim honeysuckle. Needed a small saw to cut hedges off at ground level and treat with Roundup. Stumps ranged in diameter from 2" to 8". P3314 is meeting all my needs of manuverability and weight. Project is ongoing.
I have had this chainsaw for over 5 years and use it to cut ceder trees 2" to 5" thick. Have done this 3-5 times each month for the past 5+ years. Each time using the saw for 1/2 to 11/2 hours of cutting. The only thing that I have done with it in that time is replace the chain a few times and just this week picked up a new bar. Not really sure it needed the bar but did it when I saw it on sale. Light weight and super easy to start and handle. One other thing did not use it for about 6 months it started on second pull. Love this saw.
