When the saw was running, it did seem to have good power and cutting, but that was too infrequent to continue fighting.
Returned this saw and grabbed an Echo from Home Depot. Much more satisfied.
Note to PoulanPro: You may consider having weekend hours for your customer support line. Most people using their homeowner-grade tools will be doing so on the weekend, not M-F between 8-5.
As for the shipping it arrived on time , packaged inside of the carry case with the second bar channel on the case open so moisture could escape and the usual amazon packaging on the outside layer.
Everything was as you'd expect fit and finish wise and the manual/bar channel cap were in the case along side the saw.
Only adjustment needed was idle speed but be warned if you're going to run any less than 91 octane your might need a slight adjustment on the high speed jet(after break-in) as they seem to have it set for their premixed stuff. The bar it ships with is sturdy enough for the average person , I've had it in a few binds already with no deformation or issue, however I usually prefer a slightly less flexible bar so I'll be replacing that. The chain it comes with is a standard Oregon chain so they didn't cut corners on that. Chain tensioner is a wyrm type with the adjustment screw on the face of the clutch cover so unless you're used to Husqvarna it may take a minute to get used to. They got rid of the two post handles on the oil and gas caps and switched back to a more traditional cap. Otherwise everything is reasonably solid and generally passable by today's standards.
I only have two complaints about this product are that the pawl on the chain tensioner is pretty soft and that the automatic oiler is set way to high. as for the pawl on the chain tensioner I broke it the first time I got in a bind and tried to back the tension off to remove the bar/chain to cut the bar loose with my spare saw. Realistically this is my fault and upon inspection of the pawl there was no flaws in it so I simply over torqued it without realizing since I'm used to old tensioner with no gearing to assist. The oiler is pretty typical since your average homeowner only sharpens their chain when it starts to overheat which they then blame on the saw so the high oil flow will extend chain life, This doesn't mean I have to like pouring oil on the ground all the time though.
This saw should be able to handle anything you want to do short of milling or constant logging and seems to be built in a way that most hobbyists and homeowners should be able to keep it running for years after the warranty runs out.
