Poulan Pro PP4218AVX
use it properly and its awesome
First thing if you don't use high octane gas with the 40:1 ratio with the oil you will have issues starting it especially when cold but if you do then it runs great I've had mine for 4 years now and it starts on the first or second pull every time and I heat my home with wood so I've cut at least 100 cords of wood with it and the only problem I've had was the chain brake cracked a new one from eBay was $15 and a simple fix ignore the reviews saying this isn't a good saw because that's far from the truth they probably just don't know what they are doing or aren't using the proper fuel or fuel ratio

Very Good Chainsaw
The chain saw was easy to start, no kickbacks during cutting and easy to handle. I used it for cutting logs into firewood. It took more effort for some of the thicker logs (more than 1 ft in diameter) but worked best with a rocking cutting motion. Definitely a great value for the price.

product ignition failure
Purchased this product to cut down a tree in front of the house, after two hours of on and of use it refused to start, returned it to the store and they changed it.
The replacement stoped after 4 hours of on of work.
It seems that the ignition module fails.

2nd review attempt
My first review was rejected, I will try again.
Adjustment screw in the clutch cover assembly was bent. Had to buy a new one, that arrived today. But today the chain brake lever broke. And the scabbard I ordered is too loose to be of any use. I am going to stop by an authorized repair shop and ask if I should even bother. I learned, never buy a refurb.

Your chain saws are junk
New out of the box the saw started then the clutch stuck and melted the entire plastic inside works of the saw.
It is now ready for the trash heap. It never cut the first branch. $160 in the trash.
I will never ever buy or recommend another Poulan product.
There is no warranty. The store won't take a return the saw is not repairable.
