Chain Saws In General
used to work for a tree service, maintenance was a big part, 10 idiots trying to break saws who would not listen to advice, anyway besides the fresh fuel deal if you look at the front of the bar most with sprockets have a small hole on each side this is for grease. A bar costs a lot if you grease them witch does not cost much you buy less bars and have more power to the chain.

If you flood the motor all you need to do is...switch on choke off throttle on full. pull the rope a few times it... more

Great Little Chainsaw
I have had my Poulan Wild Thing chain saw for over 10 years now. I bought it when they first came out, and it's still running great. I keep up on the maintenance (plug, filter, and keeping the chain sharp), and this little saw keeps on going without ever letting me down.

I would recommend this saw to everyone. It has been a fantastic saw. I'm glad I bought it, and you would be too if you're seeking a dependable chainsaw.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again, Fantastic Saw For Its Price
Cons: Not One Con About This Saw

What Are You Talking About?
This is the best chainsaw I have ever used. If you follow instructions, it starts in 5 pulls or less every time. Mine does anyway. Plenty of power for a small 18". I have used it 2 or 3 times a week for about 6 weeks and cut a lot of firewood, Walnut, Cherry, Maple. It stalled a couple times when it was new, but now that it is broke in, it does not. It is a pleasure to use every time. If it loses power after many hours of use, clean the filter. That's what happened to my brother's Poulan... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Reliable

Poulan 18" Wild Thing
Have about a three year old Wild Thing that was a gift. Has always been hard to start, cold or hot and never would idle for more than a few seconds. Now it will not start at all. Has spark, fuel and compression but still won't fire at all. I don't know if the spark timing is off or not? Just about broke my arm pulling the rope with no success.
I have a 20 year old Craftsman 14" still running strong.
These Wild Things are low cost chain saws so you get what you pay for.

1st Time Chainsaw Owner And User
I got this saw to cut down and cut up a couple of trees from the corners of my house.

I had to adjust the chain tension once and, yes now I know the chain oil is supposed to do that.

Easy and actually fun to use. I take it hunting with me just to cut stuff up for the campfire.

CSD RESPONDS: Keep an eye on the chain tension- the chain will stretch a bit with use, and it may need to be tightened.

The oil keeps the chain running smoothly, so it will stretch less; but it won't stop... more

Buzz Saw
The saw came right away and was easy to figure out. It cuts like a champ, and is a great product for the money. It took a while to start easier, but after a few starts it now starts up after a couple of pulls. I like the product very much. I cut down a large tree and made fireplace logs within a short time.
Pros: Price, Light Weight, Fast, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Initial Starting

Wild Thing It Is
All I can say is wow! I am an arborist, for 15 yrs. I owned them all. Some how I ended up with this Wild Thing, I thought this will be a joke. But man, this thing never let me down.

That's the truth!

Great Saw For The Money!
i purchased my wild thing in the fall of 2006. for years it has been a great saw. i am very particular about proper maintenance of vehicles and other equipment. but not this saw.

i have never done a thing but put gas and oil in it and change the chain when it got dull. i have abused this saw for many years and the clutch finally let go last week after cutting a 2.5 ft diameter white oak for fire wood.

i have thrown it from the truck to the basement to the truck bed to the forest floor... more

Good Saw For The Price
I bought the Wild Thing several years ago. I have used and abused this saw.

I have cut anything from trimming branches to cutting through two foot logs. I have never had to do anything to this saw.

It starts every time.

One Time Users
All you people who are in the one time use category because it's junk... Send me your one time use saws, I have had mine for 8 years and never had a problem.

When you do preventive maintenance, and replace worn parts, i.e. bars, plugs, filters, chains, they last a long time, and for me do just as good as an expensive saw.

Take Care Of Your Equipment
I have never had a problem with my Wild Thing.

Every season you are supposed to clean them up: a new fuel filter, (fuel line is so cheap why not throw a new one on, too) and the air filter cleaned.

People with bad experiences probably don't know how to use a chain saw. Heck, every time after I use my Wild Thing I clean it up, clean the air filter, then pull the muffler and clean spark arresting screen.

I have seen people pull the chainsaw out of the box and abuse it, and never... more
