My girlfriend bought me a Poulan2150 about 15 years ago and it still runs great. I was a poor college student then and had been wanting a chainsaw, so she got me the inexpensive Poulan which was fine.
It still runs great, I even placed a 18" bar on it and it still does great. I mainly use it to buck up lodgepole pine for firewood and a good sharp chain zips right through.
I just bought the Poulan 3416 as a back up and for any friends that may be tagging along that could help.
The 3416 started right up and runs fine. If I have big trees to fell, I have a much bigger saw for that, but for an inexpensive saw it is just fine. Sorry others have had rotten luck with theirs.
