I have had this trimmer for years now and it has been the most reliable and easy to use trimmer I have ever had.

Purchased a 4500 Weed Trimmer July of 2012. This is my first purchase of a Poulan product after being a committed Craftsman customer for over 8 years. The first time I use my Poulan 4500, after reading and following starting instructions, the 4500 was very difficult to start. After running for a short time, the 2nd time I go to start I have the same difficulty starting. In my attempt to start the pull start disconnects. I took the unit back to the place I purchased it from and they would not return it. They stated I needed to contact Poulan directly. Very disappointed in my Poulan experience!

This product won't stay running...it's new!!
I cannot recommend this product for the simple reason that it will not stay running. It starts easy, looks great, is light weight and easy to handle. Yet from day one (only two attempts to use so far) it won't stay running. I've followed the instructions properly but no matter what, it stalls out. This is not my first trimmer. I still have my Ryobi from 13 years ago and use the blower attachment to clean up after yard work. It still runs great. Go figure. So now I will have to locate an authorized servicer to figure out why she won't stay running. I called Poulan's provided customer service number today (Saturday# when I could not keep it running #again#. I touched toned my way through to 'general questions.' I recieved a recorded message stating hours of operation are Monday thru Friday and to call back during those hours. They do not take calls #for general questions# on Saturday I guess which makes perfect sense because no one does yard work on the weekends. What was I thinking?
