Poulan P3314 14-Inch 33cc 2-Cycle Gas-Powered Chain Saw
Poulan P3314 14-Inch 33cc 2-Cycle Gas-Powered Chain Saw
Price: $109.00

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the same easy-start engine that my 16-inch 1999 model 2150 Poulan was, March 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I wanted the 16" bar, but when other consumer ratings noted that the 16" Poulan being sold was NOT a new saw but a reconditioned one, I knew I would be keeping it long enough I didn't want even a warn out body. The 14" model has tons of power...IF you can ever get it started. Following all directions to the T, I cranked on that thing forever, and only once did it even begin to try to start. Biggest problem was the starter cable would "catch" when only 9" out and would not generate enough pull to turn the engine over. After removing the spark plug (which was also inconvenient since it is INSIDE the housing and the screws --not the standard Phillips) were deep set and even with a flashlight, hard to see and to get the screwdriver lined up. The starter cable did pull all the way out when the plug was removed, so there didn't seem to be a problem except extreme compression. Also, the opening in the handle for you to put your foot in order to crank it, is too small for boots with insulated toes. After taking my son's recommendation of putting a 2-foot section of 2" x 4" through the handle, I was able to stand on both sides of the stud, pull with both hands the entire distance, and get it to start. It does idle very slowly and will need adjustment so it doesn't have to be revved to keep running. If you can get it started and keep it running, it cuts extremely well, like my other Poulan. Another unfortunate issue is there isn't an accelerator lock like my old saw, which makes starting more difficult particularly with the chain brake (which wasn't on mine) getting in the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice slimline with larger print but easy to keep open, February 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It was great to see my favorite translation still available. My other two of the same translation were worn out and pages falling out, so it is a blessing to have ease in turning pages again. I would have preferred an edition without having the study notes, because I like to write my own notes, but even though the notes take up all margins, the material on the page isn't hard to see. The thin profile with larger print is nice for transporting and reading in limited light. The leather binding is awesome to allow laying the Bible flat without damaging the spline.

5.0 out of 5 stars fascinating research giving additional external proof of God's control of the universe, January 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Star of Bethlehem (DVD)
Excellent work. Obviously thoroughly researched. This is not a Christmas story, but rather it gives scientific, astronomical evidence for the star that heralded the birth of Jesus Christ, through the use of modern technology. God's plan for man's redemption through Christ began before He created the world, and this attorney has given verification to any doubting Thomas.

5.0 out of 5 stars true, inspiring and delightfully humorous but poignant story, January 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Straight Story (DVD)
If you have ever been around farmers and their tractors/riding lawn mowers, you can relate to the characters in this story. The acting is superb. I have watched this movie many times and still explode with laughter when he shoots his lawn mower. Outgrowing your live of independence,especially being permitted to drive, because of failing health is a tragedy which affects all too many of us. One can relate to the decisions he makes and admire his wisdom and devotion to be reconciled with his brother.

4.0 out of 5 stars An amazing woman (the Queen) about whom we have known very little, January 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The writing of the book is excellent. It would not have been necessary to add the two small (and exceedingly vulgar) anecdotes about Diana and Charles in their worst time period. Otherwise the language is acceptable, the movement within the story (which takes place constantly in her day-to day life) ties together. It presents all sides of Elizabeth, and all things considered, she has lived a life of total sacrifice for her country. I really appreciated getting to know that she and Prince Phillip have a beautiful relationship, although they aren't demonstrative publicly. Devotion, trust (impeccably in control of her words and never divulging confidences), steadfastness, humor (not always evident), living always for others and working toward peace between people of diverse cultures and beliefs, she has been at this thankless job for an amazing amount of time. She deserves the honor of all. Especially interesting were the photos and information related to her amazing understanding of race horses and their breeding and what makes a good runner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good collection for young developing singers, December 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This collection has some great pieces for developing voices to use along with art songs for beginning students. Most of the music is geared to the subject level of young singers. As with most Broadway songs, the range is rather low and doesn't encourage growth in range, but just keeps the singers engaged and happy. Good for some choreography.

fun music to move to! Hearing their music puts one in the sunshine on the warm soft sand, playing in the surf or just watching the little ones build sand castles.
