I agree.  Also, a Poulan Pro 4620 is the current version of the Poulan Pro 295 that Roger mentioned.  Good saws, especially if you get one of the non 'tooless' bar clamp/adjuster versions (or convert a 'tooless' version to non-tooless).

just wondering, about what model year did the 295 become the 4620?

Somewhere around 2007 IIRC.

I might get flamed for this but I don't believe that the newer Poulans are close to being the same quality as the old ones like mine.

No flaming here.  They're great saws.  I have several XXV series saws, including three S25-CVA's.  My favorite small saw.

She's a little screamer for sure. The Stihlheads don't like it when I prove Pedo-Killer can keep up with their 200Ts.

Yep.  Put a loop of Stihl 63PS chain on it (most guys have never heard of that chain) and you'll really surprise the Stihlheads.  Only aspect where the 200T really has anything on a good running S25-CVA is weight.  If I had to climb trees for a living I'd want a lighter tophandle saw.  My non-AV XXV series saws are a bit lighter than the CVA's too.
