Poulan Pro 295
« on: February 05, 2012, 06:54:34 pm »

I picked up a really clean Poulan Pro 295 recently and have been really impressed with the way it runs and cuts.
It is pulling a 16" full comp .325 Oregon 20LPX and is remarkable.
I had it in some 10"-14" Mulberry today and was astounded.
Why has this little saw been such a secret???
Is it just because of the Poulan name on it?

I knew about them Mike  ;). 46cc if I remember.

Watch the oiler, seemed to be a problem on them from past reads of owners.

Back quite a few years ago when I was into RC airplanes, A lot of guys were into converting saw engines into airplane engines. I think the 295 Poulan was one that a lot of conversions were made from. Never did get my hands on one to try. Only one I ever did, was a Ryobi 31cc.

I bought two Homelite 45cc Timberman 20" saws from pawn shops back 10 yrs ago with the idea of converting them into model airplane engines but never got around to it. I still use them as chainsaws. One of them is always on the back of the Rhino side by side. I've never had any trouble with them. One has a black cover and the other a red cover. The black top one has a bolt on carb boot and the red one has a clamp on boot. I like the black top one better though there is not much difference.

I have a Echo 50cc and a Dolmar 111 52cc, a Red Max 620, and a twin Dolmar 111 104cc as well as a fully modified Homelite 30 with pop up and the whole bit also that were purchased already converted.

I did convert two Homelite, two MCulloch 32, one Ryobi 31, and one Weed Eater 21 weed whacker engines into airplane engines.

One Homelite I sold and the other 30cc I use on a plane.

The Poulan Pro 295 was very popular back around 2004 as a converted 46cc model engine. There was a guy somewhere around Wisconsin that bought the returned saws and converted them. They were called Berrelli or something like that?

Here is a guy in Florida that put a Mac 3214 to good use on a sled type air boat. it performs very well. I think he has a 18 X 8 prop on it in the picture. He has several videos posted.

I have this PP 295 that I modded about a year ago.    I did some porting nothing serious just widened the exhaust and intake some and then of course muffler modded it.   I have another that I am going to get more serious on and see how that does.   Just thought I would add a couple of pics.


PP 505, 475, 445.
