Q: We bought a new PoulanPro PP4218AVX from you and the brake handle will not disengage
by D Henke from Montana on August 07, 2011

A: You really need to push on that brake as if it was going to brake. Once you here the click, it will be easier to disengage there after.

Great Saw
I was hoping to be able to find this model still available, I had 1 before for 5 1/2 years, I feel I got my moneys worth. The saw I had before saved me hundreds or maybe thousands of dollars from having to have someone else do the work. I wasn't sure about the no tool adjustment on the first saw, being it was plastic and all, but it was a non issue, and I found it to be ideal it lasted great until the ethanol in the gas eventually got the gas line in the fuel tank. Everywhere I looked, Lowes,... 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

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

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

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!!

Terrible Saw
Last year I had bought the 16"inch Poulan. Its the green colored one. Anyway it seemed to do okay. Had no real problem starting or anything then. Since It lasted at least a year I thought I would again buy another Poulan Saw. I bought the Poulan Pro PP4218AVX.
This saw didnt last a couple months at most. Ran maybe 10 hours off and on various different days cutting med size trees and logs.
Then close to the same time I started having problems with the little 16" Hard starting and... 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?

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!!!

What A Waste
I bought the previous model 6+ years ago - worked OK then had issues last year so I replaced with the same but updated model. Initially it would not to cut straight, replacing the tool-less chain adjustment mechanism with the fitting from the old saw solved that issue. A quick search on the internet revealing multiple people with this issue led me to this solution. Also from the get go it would never restart when warm, then after using it for weekends over 2-3 months, not for long periods it... more

Huge Timesaver
Two months ago, I had several 6 foot lengths of oak, roughly 18-28" in diameter. Without this tool, all I could do was roll the logs back and forth to complete saw cuts without hitting dirt.

Now, with my Woodchuck, it takes just minutes to lock the jaws, roll the log and complete a few cuts without having to worry about the ground, rocks, etc.

This was useful for some REALLY wide logs as well, including what must have been the base of the tree going over 30" in diameter. At... more

It works very good, and is easy to start. No tools are required if the chain comes off.
