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

Throwaway Saw
I bought this saw about 6 years ago?????? I have used it very little. About a year ago I was having a sapling cut and the saw locked up. When I say it locked up, the saw will run but it throws sparks out the side of the clutch plate. The saw was and is always full of chain oil. I have to keep a check on that because it leaks it. The saw has leaked chain oil since the day it was bought. So I call it a throwaway saw because it costs more to fix it than if you just go buy a better one.
Pros: Price
Cons: Low Quality, Durability

Luther,
It is normal for a saw to leak minor amounts of bar and chain oil due to the pressure differences caused by the heating and cooling cycles a chainsaw goes through. We recommend draining bar and chain oil before storage for this reason.

Sparks from under the clutch cover would indicate damage has occurred to the bar, chain, or sprocket. This is most likely not related to the oiler, but rather is damaged caused while felling trees and cutting wood.

Absolute Garbage
Will not stay running. After an hour of use, it quit starting altogether. Took it back and exchanged it. Second one ran for 30 minutes and never started again.

Gregg,
Sorry to hear about the issues you are having from you saw. These are normally great-running saws at a very competitive price point.

If the starting procedure is followed coupled with fresh and properly mixed fuel containing a quality 2-cycle oil, the machine should provide many years of use.

I would suggest taking it to an authorized service center to determine the cause of the issue.

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?

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

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

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

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!!!
