I love the old poulans and have owned tons of them. I have had 2 8500's , 3 5200,1 5400 , 1 s6000,1 PP655 just to list a few. Not to mention 13 306's at the same time and 7 different 245's. The s6000 is a snail compared to the pp655 high performance. The 8500,5400 and the 5200 are all the same saw just different years. My 5400 was awesome and would outrun all of it's brothers that I have owned and 1 of the 8500's was completely rebuilt. I have also owned 2 new pp505's. Sold 1 on ebay and gave the other to my dad for x-mas, it is his favorite saw to use. Unless he wants to make some noise then he picks up 1 of his 2 306's. The 505's are no slouch at 82.5cc and 13,500 rpm's dad runs 28'' bar on his and I ran mine with 36'' bar that it pulled really well. I this thread but now I am really missing some of the poulans that I sold!!!!!!! I got my 5400 back and nead to change the top end but have not had the time. This thread is awesome!!!!
Never say die.......
Dang it I'm going to have to get some clothes on and go out to the garage to get some pictures!!!
Here's the 21" bar.
I shall return!
I trade my 3400 antiwibe in on a 372xpw I $150 for that thing!!
1996 Ford F-350 PowerStroke - with a few mods (310,000 miles and counting!!!)
Husky 460 - 18"
Husky 372 xpw with Muffler Mod - 24" & 32"
Thought some of you Pioneer/Poulan experts might help me out. Have an old Pro655 with a dead ignition module and can not locate a replacement.
Do any of you know a convenient work-around, possibly using a simple coil in combination with a firing chip??
I am a fan of poulans in all their forms, craftsman, dayton, partner, ect. I think Ive always liked poulans because my dads first new saw was an S25DA. Funny story about that saw. My dad was using it one day 5 years ago cutting up a cherry tree. The saw just died on him. At the time, I knew very little about saws, so I brought it to my repair guy. He said it was junk, couldnt get parts. So I left it there. To be honest, I felt bad about just leaving it there! I bought a new Dolmar 540, and forgot about the '79 poulan. fast forward two months ago. Thanks to this site giving me a stron case of CAD, Iask my repair guy if he has any old saws I could buy/have. He says yeah I might. I wind up getting a Poulan S25DA in pieces (runs mint! sold it to my best friend he loves it), homelite 330, craftsman 2.3, 2005 husky 365 (yeah free!) and my dads old Poulan! So I got the saw back, I put new fuel lines< rebuilt carb, new filters and plug, runs like new. Really happy we got it back to its home! So for poulans I have
S25DA (never getting rid of it again)
Dayton anti-vibe s25da (rare saw?)
craftsman 3.7 (like new)
3700 (on its way EBAY $40.00)
heres all of them the 3 poulans are on the right
