Worse Gift I Have Ever Received
Worse chainsaw ever and I have had it in the shop 4 times, still is not fixed. I have talked to four different people at four different numbers and can't get a replacement or a refund. Never ever ever will I buy a Poulan product of any kind again. Now I have to take it back to the same shop for the fifth time or drive 40min to another shop. I have wasted more time and gas money running it back and forth to the shop than what the darn things is even worth. I will let everyone know how bad the... more

Saw
This is a good saw for the homeowner use. The problem I have is the gas cap swells up and you can not turn open with your hand. This is the second Poulan saw I've owned that has done this.

Chain Will Not Stay Taught
This chain saw will not keep a chain tight and thus throws the chain after only a few minutes of cutting. The tooless hand tightening feature is worthless. In addition the gas cap swells and is often impossible to tighten. It can be removed with a tool, but cannot be tightened except by hand. Seems to me that making a gas cap from plastic that swells under gas fumes is a no brain stupid idea, not to mention the safety aspect of gas dripping from the tank near the muffler.
Pros: Price, Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use

Great Saw For The Price
I use it for cutting firewood for my own use. Was concerned about the starting ability of the saw but so far no problems. Just follow the mfg. instructions and it starts just fine. I'm happy.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

Nice Saw For The Money
I have a pp3516a and a pp3816a.....both saw runs nice my first saw yes gas cap was hard to get off so I bought a new one for 3/dollars works great ...I over use my saws allot and have no problems at all my first saw is now 9 years old and the crankshaft broke, no big deal.

I ordered a new one and will fix the saw myself they are very easy to fix and easy to order parts from Jack's small engines great company to get parts from... I cut about 25 to 30 cord a year ...I would recommend this saw... more

Works Fine
Purchased in a hurry due to a large tree falling. I read the reviews after I purchased and was quite concerned. I have not had any issues with the gas cap or chain.

I have cut up a large tree without any trouble and trimmed several large limbs. I will not be a heavy user so it seems fine for me.
