poulan pro pole pruner
« on: August 08, 2015, 12:42:52 pm »
just bought a pp28pd pole pruner yesterday. I was surprised to see the manual calls for a 50:1 mix ratio. I was used to poulan stuff being 40:1. glad to see it, makes it a lot easier on me. The little thing does a really nice job. Quite happy with my purchase.

Sorta similar to my PP338PT trimmer/pole saw.  Only it appear this is not strato.  Mine got an exhaust port widening and had the muffler opened up a little (stuff happens  ;)).

I had a ryobi 31cc built poulan PP446ET in for repair once.  I wouldnt put any money in the ryobi built one. Hoping to see the others are better built and back to poulan? http://chainsawrepair.createaforum.com/poulan/poulan-pro-pole-saw/msg23787/#msg23787

No, actually I'm running a 16" bar with a loop of that Oregon Lo Pro full skip chain they supply on cheap Poulan saws.  I ground off all the shark fin bumpers.  There is actually an Oregon number for that junk but I forget what it is.  It's normally horrible stuff, but ironically I now find I'm keeping an eye out for it!

I had really only done this out of desperation last year when I found myself behind in the firewood gathering, and needed to get a several year dead hickory that was snagged in an ash.  I dropped the ash using the pole saw.  It turned out to work so well that I've kept it on - although this is a 33cc strato engine, mildly ported and muffler modded.  It actually runs quite well. 

I bent the bar this year and did an almost decent job straightening it back out.  What the heck, I have other 16" bars, and pole saws just seem to result in bent bars anyway - I think because they get used at awkward angles and you can't really feel what's happening out there.

This is my first pole saw, so for sure on the pinched bars! mine is all stock, but I was really surprised at how well it ran right out of the box. A bump on the idle was all it needed. If it lasts me a couple of years I'll be happy.
