All assembled at retailer. Could not get it to start. Tried to start several times; no luck. It has to have defects in the manufacture.

Poulan "Wild Thing"
Right out of the box, this is the most disappointing product I have ever purchased. It is exhausting to start, maddening to keep running, and impossible to go through a whole tank of gas without failures.
I am an experienced Oregon logger and was looking for a small saw for little trees and limbs. This was a disasterous decision on my part. It's back to my Stihl's and Husky's.

Last one I will buy
I took the saw out of the box and had difficulty starting. Once it did start if I took my hand off the throttle it would cut off again. Then it sarted to smoke

This saw is the hardest thing in the world to start. I have about 45 min run time on it. I've just spent 20 min attempting to start it. I've had enough of the this thing.
I'm going to go get a real chain saw and use this one as a boat anchor.

Worst Chain Saw ever
Used my brand new P3314 for 90 minutes before it quit working and I couldn't get it started. Took it to authorized dealer for repairs and Poulan denied the warranty claim even though it's still under the 1 year warranty. Last chain saw I had lasted for 15 years. These are junk and the warranty is useless!

A friend brought me this saw that he got from a friend for free. It was in rough shape. Pull string was fed wrong. Had never been cleaned and the idle adjustment screw was stuck in the starter fan. The fuel tank filter fell off and the line was cracked. After 4 hours of work and four dollars in parts i had that saw screaming. After adjusting the idle and carb it runs like a top. Starts everytime. High topend power. No stalling even during warmup. Whoever says this saw is bad should not own a chainsaw. Not anti vibe so your hands will take a beating

Great for the money!
My father and I use stihl and this saw and there is almost no difference. The only thing is its a little harder to start, but overall a great saw!
