Look at Efco.
I knew EFCO made some pretty good saws, but didn't know they made pole pruners.  Will check them out as well.

Are the polands worth the money? Would you buy one again if you had it to do over?   At this point I think I will just go ahead and buy a Poland Pro.  I can get 1 on flee bay for around 180.00.  The Echo's are no doubt a higher quality tool but @ $400 they should be.  I keep my equipment in top working order so maybe it will last awhile.  Many thanks to all for your input. :)

thing is you kill something on the poulan you can pick up anything except saw end at local yard sale. I don't find echos at the yard sale. I have 3 echos and 1 tanaka from christmas tree farm trying to figure out how to put poulan carburetors on them. those rotary valve carburetors suck. get a poulan pro find a way to make it run a little richer than factory intended and enjoy

How can you tell the difference.  Is there an easy way?

Not pushing any brand here,  I would like to have a Husqvarna, etc.. but for $250 less I bought a Poulan  Pro.  Have been very happy with it. Out of the box I only bumped the throttle adj a smidgen and it runs like it should. I use it for home use not prof use. It will cut limbs as big as the 8" bar will let it. Will it last? Did I get lucky with this one last? Only time will tell. Did find replacement chains at Walmart on clearance for $5 .

      Are the carbs. on the Poland Pro's adjustable?  Since everything these days is EPA laced, I'd like to be able to richin it up a bit.

if they are not should not be hard to find one that is.  most have zamas that rebuild easy . be sure to unbox and  check the particular one you buy its only way to be sure which carburetor you actually get.
