More China Junk
I only used high test shell gas and two stroke oil. Like everyone else, the saw will not stay running, and is very hard to start. After an hour in the hot sun, I had enough and took my sledge hammer and beat this piece of crap into the ground and set fire to what was left.

You will be better off buying an ax than wasting money on a Poulan. Poulan should be ashamed to sell such junk. Years back, their chainsaws were decent. Stop screwing people over with your junk, Poulan!
Cons: Durability, Low Quality, Unreliable

Junk
What a piece of junk. I have spent more money trying to get/keep it running than it originally cost. One time I took it in because it was running backwards? How does that happen?

I use nothing but VP gas for my two cycles. So no water in the fuel.

If you are going to buy it, put a 14" bar on it. Better yet 12, which is really what the horsepower on the saw can support. But now you have a really heavy saw for something less than you wanted. Plus the bar they sold is cheap... more

Awesome Saw!!!!!
I purchased this saw because the price was right. I wasn't sure if this saw was going to be able to handle what I needed it for. But to my surprise this saw has made me a believer. I have cut down a cottonwood tree that was over 36 inches in diameter and did not skip a beat.

It cut through it like a hot knife through butter. It had no problem cutting that big tree up and the other big red oak and white oak and other trees that stood before it. So far since September 2014 to now December... more

Awesome Saw!
I bought the Poulan Pro 4218AVX last year when I had tree damage from the storms... Cut wood like a hot knife through butter... We're talking Maple, Walnut, Locust, and Willow... Some of the limbs were rather large and I thought that maybe I should have gotten a bigger saw... But at 5'7" and only 130 lbs. I didn't want anything to big I couldn't handle... Saw was easy to use and I didn't have to struggle with it.... Just lay it on the limb and it did the rest... Did some serious cutting... more

Gas Cap Tighting Problem
The gas cap seems to swell after using for no reason making it difficult to remove and reseal. Is there a known flaw in it?

Piece Of Crap
This saw will run fine for a few months, then you have carb problems and the saw will not run. Forget trying to find someone to work on a Poulan. I will NEVER buy another Poulan, complete waste of money.

Randy,
I included a link to Poulan Pro's dealer locator below. You may contact them at 800-554-6723. You can try draining the gas and using either fresh gas or a premixed gas such as TruFuel. The oil is premixed and there is no ethanol included so it has a shelf life of a few years.

Won't Stay Started
Bought it brand new, followed all the instructions to the tee. Initially started fine, ran fine, after about 8 cuts or so it kept stalling and I found myself doing more starting than cutting. My time is worth more than that I decided and am taking it back to the store. I'll just have to bite the billet and buy Stihl or Husky! The reviews on this site are a great tool and help greatly. Love your site!!

Totally Fed Up
I Bought two of these saws. I could not get the first on to idle and broke the handle in half trying to start it. I took it back to "Big Box Store" they gave me another. The new one would not run unless you had someone hold down the trigger while you pulled the starter rope and don't let go of the trigger. After one tank of fuel it never started again. Called Poulan and they told me to take it to their warranty center 30 miles away. He could not keep it running and said it... more

Piece Of Junk And Extremely Bad Customer Service.
This is my second one. I should have learned from the first one but I thought I may have just gotten a lemon on the first one. My new one has been unused for a month and a half because of poor service info. They gave me the names of 4 authorized service centers and not one did service for Poulan. They said, "I don't know why they keep saying we do service for them". My brand new saw which is a Pro 18" has either a bad carburetor or vacuum leak. There are no service centers within... more

Good While It Last
Saw cuts wood good out of the box. I cut 6 to 8 truck loads then I started having trouble with it. It won't stay running and as soon as you try to cut it wants to die. I took good care of it and fuel ratio is right. Have to restart it every five minutes. My brother bought the same saw and is having the same trouble. I think it's a carb problem. It was a good saw while it lasted but I was hoping it was gonna last longer than a year. I would spend the extra money and get a better saw!!!
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability

Great looking saw, came assembled. Started cutting a couple of Oaks up that I had a contractor drop for me. Went through logs from 6 inches up to 30 inches with no problem. Only problem I encountered was that you have to constantly add bar oil. Found that out after I filled the bar oil twice and was cutting for about 15 minutes when it fouled. I"m taking it back to the store and getting the 20 inch. I"m not about to work on a machine that I've had 45 minutes. Not too loud either. Great Saw!!!
