Great saw for the price.
I use it primarily as a homeowner trimming trees or overlength split logs. I also use it for clearing deadfalls on horse trails. The saw is light enough that it can be easily slinged over your shoulder and carried on horseback. Put an extra bar and chain in the saddlebag in case you get it stuck and a quart of gas and bar oil and you are good to go.

I think this is the worst chain saw you could ever own I bought it brand new used it a couple of times. The pull cord broke the second time I pulled it. I reattached the cord and had a hard time starting it.
I followed the instruction on how to start it but it took 6 trys and when it did start if you let off the trigger it stalled out and it took for ever to get it started again. I would highly recomend you stop selling it

New saw very, very hard to start
Been using chainsaws for years and this is the worst I've ever owned. Terrible to try starting, but runs well and does a good job if you are fortunate enough to get it cranked.

new poulan saw , new problems
hi all i purchased this saw last year because i needed a new saw ,. took it home and it would not start , got a cramp trying to start it so my friend tried it then it started ( this saw will be the 8th saw i have owned ) cut one limb and it died , took me 4 days to cut a small tree . boy this saw is hard to run . well now its spring time and the tree limbs are all over the yard , so i got the saw out and it is worse this time to start , now im upset .. took the saw apart to check on the spark plug . IT WAS GAPED AT .010 NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY IT WOULD NOT START .
took the plug and cleaned it with a stainless steel brush and gaped it to .030 and re assembled the saw pulled the cord 3 times and it started and ran like it should of in the beginning . i recommend every one to pull the spark plug clean it and re gap it to .025 - .030 . if this does not help get a new spark plug . there cheap

Very Seldom Starts
It was over 6 months before we could start it. Had a lot of trouble starting it again and then finally started it once about 2 months later. We have had it for over
1 & a half years and have only used it very briefly twice. The closest center to take it for warranty work is too far and we would have to make 2 trips.

just purchased because old saw needed a new chain that was no longer available as a replacement part.
added fuel and bar tack and was immediately impressed at how easily the unit started and it performed above expectations for this size saw. My previous saws were mfg by stihl and the power and ease of use were unsurpassed.I am 100% satisfied with this purchase and will definitely recommend it to my friends.

I recieved this as a Christmas gift from my wife. This product has great features and is super nice and light. I suffered a heart attack and had three stents inserted and I am quite able to lift and operate the P3314 with no problem. I would recommend this saw for all older people who like to cut your own firewood and still feel young at heart.
