Anyone ran one yet? I looked at one at Lowe's 50cc and I think it had full 3/8 chain with 20" for $199. Clamshell design.

I've not had the chance to try one out yet but am sure looking forward to it.
It's been a long time since a saw with the Poulan name on it has garnered as many positive reviews as what I've seen on this one.
Maybe this could be the start of something good for Poulan again.

My boss bought one after I told him about them. He ask me if he was going to buy a new saw that had a 20" bar on it for $200 what would I get. He bought the black and grey craftsman version. He has used it twice and loves it for around his place. Came with 3/8 oregon vanguard chain.

 I checked the IPL on 5020 and it is a clamshell design like the husky 450 455 and stihl 250 290 and poulan site dont have it for some reason listed, but I found some specs that showed close to what it felt like in my hands with bar and 20" chain on it. 15.15lbs as used it says.


Shame part was I had a 330 or 3450 for him (boss) but he couldnt get it from me because some state BS between management and union employees. He is just that straight of a shooter and is close to retirement like me. So I dont blame him.

Not bad for stock 50cc homeowners saw.

Fairly sturdy as well, and I will try to get some more time on it in real firewood cutting soon.

Looks like the guy at work is wanting it, so off it will go. Might pickup another sometime. I found that Menards has them at $199 for there regular price. You cant go wrong with this saw for that kind of money..

My boss at work bought the black and grey version and loves it. He is just a occasional I need to cut a tree up that fell on my property type.
I had talked with him about saws and even had one for him but he wasnt allowed to get anything from me do to state rules  ??? (it is true I checked into it). 
Now get this this guy makes just shy of 6 figures on straight pay and he about chit when I told him the cost of husqvarna, stihl, dolmars in the pro grade and cc size. So then I mentioned the 5020 and that is what he bought new.

 I just wonder why they didnt go with .325 chain though. I love 3/8 but  ::)

I really have no idea why the 3/8's either. Its not a bad thing though as even though its a saftey chain the 72V chain isnt that bad. Much better IMHO then the 33 series that would have probably come with it if it was .325.

Enlarging the hole under the deflector and running it with a 16" bar with 72LPX made a pretty decent runner out of it but stock with the 20" will get the job done without any trouble.

The thing that amazed me was the carb was set pretty much spot on, right out of the box.
