If the owner insists on keeping it as an AVX.........:o.

Hopefully the updated parts will be more durable the originals.   Thankfully my 4620 is an AVHD.

One of the complete parts sets I ordered came in. Works good now with the metal updated gear over the plastic gear that was pushing the 2 metal gears before.  8)

I would be changing covers or modding this cover and tensioner myself if mine.

Both sets of parts came in so now I'll have a extra on hand.

Test cutting with the 4620 I noticed I do not like that very soft top right side spring AV mounted to the cylinder. Way to soft and feels like my hand is going to hit the moving chain in bucking cuts, even though I know it isnt.

Poulan Pro went from the 295 to the 4620. Main difference is a different coil and flywheel. The 295 was a 3 magnet flywheel, the 4620 is a 2 magnet. The AVX adjustment is for those who want to cut a broken apple tree limb once a year. They just will not stay tight. These saws will jump a chain in a heartbeat. I actually have (6) 35 gal. barrels of new chains that jumped off and got burred before ever sawing wood. Parts will interchange on the Poulan 2750, 2775, 2900 and P.Pro 295, 315, and 4620. They are basically the same. The 295, 315, 2775, and 4620 have the chrome plate. The older of these saws with the black muffler were some good saws. It was originally built as a Partner.

I am not real familiar with Partner.   Which model number was it that was built as a Partner.  Is it the 315.

Here is a cool page with newer looking partners listed on the right side.  Maybe from the UK. http://outdoor-power-equipment.net/chainsaw-gas/partner/462/

My 4620AVHD came from a neighbor,  hasn't had even a full tank of fuel ran through it.  Apparantly if came from the factory with the wrong chain,  then my neighbor & his son bought another incorrect chain.   Yesterday I bought a low-hour Poulan Pro 295 via CL (for $25.00 I was pleasantly surprised at how little use it shows).  Once I get some photos taken of the two,  I'll post them in case anyone is interested is seeing (spotting?) any differences.

Hi Chris!
-Aaron

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

I am interested in the differences.   I have a couple of the 295's and really like them.   Post what you find between the two Chris.
