It worked well. Plenty of power. Gave my arms quite a workout. It seemed to just stop working once, but turned out to be the safety handle out of position. The chain came off the drive a couple of times, but it went back on easy enough. The chain had to be sharpened a lot, but that was due to my hitting dirt frequently to get as much of the root system I could out, so I cannot blame the chain, however finding a replacement chain was a challenge.
Per the manual, the chain is 16" with 55 Drive Links. Part # 966-051601
0.05 gauge 3/8" pitch
Per Oregon's website, this is the replacement chain for this Poulan PLN3516F: Oregon 16-Inch Semi Chisel Chain Saw Chain Fits McCulloch, Stihl S55. I ordered this from Amazon and it was the same size and it fit onto this PLN3156F pefectly.
Note that I found it easiest to put the chain onto the bar while it was OFF the rest of the chainsaw and then put it around the drive as I pushed the bar onto it's mount, both at the same time.
A replacement bar is P/N 966-051301
It did not come with bar oil, so I had to goto the local True Value and pick a bottle up for 4 bucks.
Now I just have to find the time to clean it, ugh.
I thought I would wear out the easy dial to tighten but I was wrong.
Oregon S54 14"/16" chain fits and lasts the longest for me. Fits tight on loosest setting so when the chain stretches you have a long way to go before you have to replace it.
The engineers at Poulan are awesome and so is the management. Nowadays you see too many managers judging engineers on how much money they can save the company by cutting corners and I commend Poulan.
I followed the directions prior to using the chainsaw. I was keeping the chain at the correct tension. It was full of chain oil and is suppossed to be self lubricating. The cut did not put the chain in a bind in any way. My conclusion is that the plastic holding the shaft and bushing in place was defective or not strong enough to handle the tension.
It may have been an isolated case, but I won't buy another Poulan chainsaw, and I am going back to gasoline powered saws. They seem to be better built.
I returned it to Lowes and they gave me a full return.
I hope this review helps someone.

Worked great the first 10 minutes. After that I notice the trigger switch wouldn't fully compress. Finally couldn't get it to start because of the trigger. Read morePublished 6 days ago by GARY W.
This was a mistake by in this product. Use it about 6 times and little pieces of plastic started coming out of the motor and then just stop working. Save your money!!!Published 5 months ago by jeffrey cole
Like other reviewers, I have a major complaint about the inaccessibility of parts. No one makes the plastic gear that frequently breaks and Poulan has no solution. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Charles RN
