Do you run the oem poulan pro chain on yours?

What is the chain 3/8LP and is it .050 and what is the DL drive link count.

I am sure you can get some stihl full chisel PS3 or PS made up.  I know I went with PS3 on my echo pole pruner.  Quicker in the cut so I wasnt holding over my head as long.

It is probably full skip Oregon 0.043" with double shark fin bumpers.  Like kickback is a concern on a pole saw!

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.
  So how do you like your pp28pd Poulan?  I'm almost ready to pull the trigger on one of these.  One question for you sir?  Does this model have just  2 cylinder head bolts or more, or do you know?  I was told that the Ryobi made the 2-bolted models and I want no part of those.  If anyone else has any insight on this model, feel free to step in.   Many thanks.

As of now, I am still very happy with it. This is my first pole prunner and I was surprised how handy it is to have around. That said, I use it as a home owners tool at this point.

The ryobi one is listed in this below that came into me. His he would have to look at cylinder.

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

I think that is the model I have .Compared to most pole saws it was inexpensive, about 200 at Lowes .

Cheap or not they do what they are designed to do .Occasional use not pro tree service type work .

GOOD MORNING Gentlemen!   We'll I finally bought one.  Got a Poulan pp28pdt.  Picked it up at TSC for $200 yesterday.  Has the weed eater attachment also. Extends to 12 ft.  This looks like its better made than some of the Poulans I have looked at.  Least it has 4 cyl. bolts.  Only wish it had the adjustable angle bar instead of fixed.  Later I may put a Ryobi on it.  Looked at a slug of models before choosing this one.  Weight was my major concern.  Bout bought a older Husky 326, but was heavy for me.  The 128 model on the lower end of the Husky line was heaver than the 326, but priced decent.   Echo's were heaver yet and higher priced.  Happy with what I have.  After honey-do's are done, I will get out today and run her.  Thanks to all for helping me deside :)
