A quick review of my Poulan P3816 Chainsaw…. POS… 4/10
Poulan is junk…straight up Junk. They are Notoriously Unreliable. You’re MUCH better off with a Chinese clone saw, from ebay…….
lol! I got one very similar, love it. 😉 If you’re in BC I’ll be happy to buy it off you cheap.
btw, I had same carb problem, took a piece of left over firestone air bag installation hose about 3 inches long and just leave it stuck on the high speed adjusting screw all the time. never comes loose and you never have to go looking for a screw driver. mine usually starts second/third pull cold, first pull hot, never stalls. It just takes a bit to learn how to set the carb, once you got that figured it’s all good.
also, that’s an oregon S62 chain and it takes a 5/32 file. Mine is branded a poulan “wild thing” and I couldn’t resist buying it just for the name. paid $189.00 at canadian tire, it’s my go to mill saw. Used the shit out of it for 9 years now, like it so much I bought a princess auto refurb for $109.00 as a spare just because… it’s still sitting in the box.
looks like you got access to some nice logs. 🙂
hey u have the bar on backwords
Buy the tool and adjust carb, every issue u just named will go away. I have same one and same issues and since I adjusted tool it is a different machine.
