My Husqvarna is doing the same thing. I have never learned to repair those style carbs. Checked my fuel lines & filter & they are fine.

I bought a Poulan chainsaw through Canadian tire 3,4 yrs ago, can't remember the model but I do remember reading in the manual that came with it and it said saw made for light duty work, expected engine life >50hrs< and that's pretty much how long it lasted, when it was near it's end, didn't want to idle.

I can't get over the prices used saws get on eBay. I don't know how much the Poulan will bring but you might get couple bucks for it.

I should add in all fairness to Poulan for a home owner who needs a saw 2,3 times a year to cut up a couple of branches theses saws are fine for that.

Also the everybody I know that bought a used saw got ripped, they either only ran when they looked at them or died shortly after bringing them home, last guy bought $1000. Stil (can't spell) for $250 supposedly in like new condition only to find out it needed chain, bar and engine kit.

If you've been using gas with ethanol in it, you very likely have some half-disintegrated plastic floating around in the fuel system. 2 stroke engines also don't lubricate properly with ethanol fuels because the alcohol has a tendency to wash the oil off the metal parts. Makita Canada was recommending that all of their 2 stroke products be run on premium fuels because of that. Premium fuels up here are less likely to have ethanol in them...not sure about in the US.

Anyway, I've seen idle problems with the Makitas because of the fuel issue. I didn't work on the gas engines when I worked there, but I paid attention to what was going on because it would apply everywhere, not just to those specific products.

I should add in all fairness to Poulan for a home owner who needs a saw 2,3 times a year to cut up a couple of branches theses saws are fine for that.


I actually bought a 16" electric just because of that. I often cut firewood with family and friends, but I use their tools when doing it. I had a cheap little McCullough because all I need around here is small saw and I was tired of spending an hour messing around (where's the gas/oil mix can? Do I have any 2 stroke oil? Oops left fuel in it last time, now I have to buy a filter!) that once or twice a year I needed my own saw. The electric is great. It has enough power for small jobs, and the only fluid it needs is chain oil.
