Poulan ChainSaw PLN3516F 16-Inch 3.5 HP Electric
Equipped with a 16-inch bar and a 3.5 peak horsepower, this Poulan chainsaw is particularly made to deal with the medium size cutting jobs that are done close to your house or power outlet. It also includes automatic chain oiler and tool-less tensioning system providing you an ease during operation.
This Poulan chainsaw has medium power, quite small and inexpensive. Considering its performance and quality, I give this product a high rating. Note, this chainsaw won’t be able to fell a century old oak tree but when used for what it is made for, you won’t get disappointed.
I bought this chainsaw because a year ago, we were hit by a storm that took down nearly 50 ft tall hardwood tree in my backyard. Due to its size, it caused a very big mess. Because of that storm, Home Depot stores ran out of chainsaws so I find myself ordering online instead (at Amazon). I came over this Poulan chainsaw, liked the features, ordered it and came for just about 2 days.
The tree was about 20 inches in diameter with lots of branches. Definitely, it took me quite some time to deal with all the cutting. I only used this saw for the entire duration.
For quite an unusual reason, I took a star from it because it didn’t have a starter container for oil. It’s not about being strict but I think all equipments should have one.

Chainsaws are indeed important things but can be funny art some point. They are amazing and the amount of brand loyalty provided by some people to some brands is quite surprising. I think that Stihl is a great brand but the price seems to be overkill.
Chainsaws are one of the things that you have to research on. After doing such, I decided to purchase this newest Poulan model. It is a tough little saw but is terrible, as the saying “small but terrible”. But I don’t mean any negativity. It has a great quality feel overall. Just to give you information, the old Poulan models are being phased out everywhere, the “AVX”. They seem to have troublesome features about finger controlled chain adjuster, particularly plastic that can break. You would come across reviews about AVX models about durability.
The “AV” model still has the old style chain adjuster in it. But my ground for choosing this is its 50 cc engine along with the newer and tougher features. Most of all is the price, $179-199 online, not a bad deal considering the features. Would’ve bought an ECHO though but it was $100 more expensive and lesser engine displacement. Also, Husqvarna owns Poulan, quality guaranteed. I spent last weekend cleaning up a lot and the chainsaw didn’t give me any problems. With its plastic case, the mess was kept in one place.
Useful tips: One, do not attempt to estimate gas/oil mixture using your sight, measure it. Second, for easy access from outside the saw, secure a carb adjust tool. Third, drain out any oil or gas if you won’t be using the chainsaw for months.
Only time will tell how long this Poulan chainsaw will last. But this is really a great deal. As for me, I am an occasional user so this should serve me for years. If I’m running a business out of cutting timber, I would prefer the expensive ones like Stihl. But as for my needs, this is enough.
