Found when you could buy these full wrap handles they were listed at $155 a piece.   :o   Guess thats why they are high NOS. 

Being I never had a gen1 5200. What is the difference if any in the full wrap on 52 to gen2 gen3 5400 8500?

Number is different in 52 but same on 54 85. So maybe the number just superseded?

poulan 4200 5200 av anti vibe mount = Kensie - part number is 530024225, it is the updated version used on the 3400/3700/4000 rear mount, and all of the 6900/7700/8500 mounts. I've seen them on eBay from pro line and chainsawr.com is also selling them, which is where I got them.

Some NOS Poulan 5400 full wraps. Will work on 5200 8500 and others in series. Like the grip on the gen 2 series 5400 the best. Not smooth like earlier and not foam like later.

The Beaird-Poulan 5200 was way ahead of its time when introduced in 1975. Then to a 5400 in 1981.
Finally becoming  the Poulan-Weedeater 8500 in 1984 with very few upgrades.
Not much happened in the 5 years as Electrolux Poulan Pro starting in 1988 with the 655 as their top pro model .

My 71 year old brother Dennis still has his 8500 with pipe and WB carb. He doesn't post on the internet but I might get some pics from him.

Kevin, I just talked to my brother Dennis he says he'll send me pics of his 8500. He "may" also join here and post a bit. He says he can sell you the 8500 seeing he knows who you are....
