I have an '04 Craftsman 42cc ,18" b+c , 358.360280. Can anyone tell me what the equivalent Poulan model is? Also is Poulan pronounced polan or poolan ? TIA fellas.   Chris

I call them polan but some people make fun and call them pull-on

We should share what we know... someone may learn...

That I believe is the Poulan 260 equivalent.    Good saws in my opinion for a homeowner 42cc firewood cutting.
I think it comes with 3/8 low pro chain also.  I have a couple of the Poulan version.

Thanks 660 Magnum for the response. I say polan as well.  After looking thru several IPL 's the closest match I come up with is a 1975 type 7, except for a different muffler. I realize the rebadged saws may differ, but I was curious what fits it in case of future repairs.  Thanks again.   Chris

Thanks 3000 FPS. I thought so at 1st, but mine is non-AV. But there are alot of parts that appear to be the same. I noticed several of the plastic Poulans have the same parts. It has been a decent little saw. Thanks again.  Chris      Yes it does have the 3/8 low profile chain.

Maybe it could be like one of the Poulan 42cc wild things.   Is your saw marked 42 cc on the starter cover.

I have a habit of pronouncing it as poolan but I think polan is more correct.

3000FPS; the starter cover says 18" 42cc. Is the wild thang 40 or 42cc?

I've got some variation of that .It has a spring type of suspension system ,Never could figure exactly which model of Poulan it is .Runs .325 chain .

I tweeked it a tad and it runs like a scalded  ape --for about two cuts then leans out fast .I suspect seals but that's as far as I've gone with it .A "work in progress " just like many more I guess .

Al, thanks for the input. I've read many of your posts as well and thoroughly enjoyed them all. I'm a new member as of January and have been doing alot of reading. Learned quite a bit so far. Seems like a tight community here. My kind of people. Look forward to learning as much as I can. The saw that got me started is a Craftsman 3.7 / 18" (1982), Poulan 3700 rebadge as you know. Was given to me by a good friend for taking down a small tree. Have it for 7 years now, didn't know what I had  until recently. What a great saw. Carb kit, oil pump rebuild , new 20" b+c , and it runs like a raped ape. See y'all around the forum.   Chris
