Poulan Pro PP446ET Gas Powered Pole Saw Review

The reviews of this Gas Powered Pole Saw are mixed. Even though it has an “Effortless Pull Starting System” there are many complaints about the PP446ET having trouble starting, especially when cold. Also there are quite a few people experiencing different malfunctions, which of course happen with any product. The problem is that the Poulan Customer Service is not very helpful (to say the least). In all cases the caller gets pointed to a Poulan Service Center in their area, which in some cases is quite far away. The Poulan Service Center will check your product for you and then either fix it or tell you that Poulan will not reimburse the service for this problem. In which case you have to take your not properly working pole chain saw home and call with Poulan again so they can SELL you the part that you need.

Aside from this the Poulan Pro PP446ET just needs a little getting used to. Problems like the saw stalling a bit when held “too” vertical can be prevented by raising it with the chainsaw on full throttle or at least high speed.
Most people are positive and as there are many people complaining about the Poulan being difficult to start, there are just as many people praising how easily it starts. The string trimmer attachment is easily attached and does a good job, although some people find that it works better with a thicker string.

Amazon sells this Gas powered Pole saw for the best price. It should not be compared to the 25cc version sold at Lowe that is weaker and doesn’t come with the string trimmer attachment.

Get it from Amazon

Overall we still give the Poulan Pro PP446ET a positive recommendation.
It is stronger than the electric pole chain saws but is not as strong and durable as an industrial-brand pole chain saw. It costs not much more than an electric pole chain saw and thus is much cheaper than industrial-brand saws. You definitely get your money’s worth.


Attention!
Poulan has stopped the production of the Poulan Pro PP446ET. There are still a few available but at higher prices. A good replacement model is the Poulan Pro PP338PT 8-inch 33cc 2-stroke Gas powered Pole Pruner With String Trimmer Attachment.

*Poulan Pro 33cc Pole Pruner with Trimmer Attachment Included. 2-cycle gas engine. Attachment capable straight shaft. 8-Inch bar and chain auto gear drive oiler. J-Handle. Trimmer head included.*

I just received my Poulan pole saw with string attachment. It is very easy to assemble, started right away and did the trimming of limbs that needed to be done. It is very quiet, starts on first pull, absolutely delighted.

Getting the product a day earlier than expected was a bonus! I bought the product primarily as a pole saw, but the weed eater attachment was welcome. I found that the connection method which others had complained about to be very effective for both attachments as long as it is properly tightened. The chain saw head is a little on the lightweight side, but this is from someone who owns and uses pro-level chainsaws. I found that you have to keep the motor revved up to maintain cutting power or the chain will hang-up on the branch you are cutting. For pruning of high branches, it beats the heck out of climbing a ladder with a regular chainsaw. I’m very happy with the purchase!
