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!

No problems here
Was given this as a gift for our first home. Suits my around the house/neighborhood needs just fine. Does take about 30-60sec of throttle to get warmed up, no stalling after that. I recommend using the pre-mix ethanol free fuel. It does leak a little oil when not in use, I just put an oil rag or pig mat under it.

Not a good chainsaw
On the very first day of use, the P3314 kept stalling on me. Despite religiously adhering to the start-up directions, it would stall over and over. It also leaks oil on whatever you rest it on. Worse than the saw has been the Poulan customer service (lack thereof) that I have received so far. My brand new chainsaw is now in for service after cutting exactly 4 branches. Never again.
