Testing the waters here. I have a good condition poulan 4000 that I would like to trade for a bigger saw. We bought our house 4 year ago from a family friend and he left the saw in the shed. I found it and got it running again. Replaced the fuel lines and fuel filter. Seems to have good compression although I never tested it. I dont think it has a lot of hours on it. Previous owner said he stopped using it cause it was to big. I’ll get more pictures if anyone is interested

Fair enough most of us wind up with a saw for every occasion haha. A husky 372 would probably see ya well. I run mac 7-10s and a pm700 as the 70cc saw gap filler they limb well enough and kinda do the bigger stuff too. My biggest is a mac 800 at 82cc and that's a big step in grunt and weight.

A husky 288 will be the big saw 1 day when funds allow

It’s not the finest looking machine. But it runs great and could be prettied up. That was my plan. But I haven’t done much with it because it’s too heavy for what I do.

Cool looks nice. Think I could get new plastic for where it’s chewed up by the muffler? Any known issues with it? It would be the only saw I own so gota make sure it’s reliable! This poulan starts like clockwork. 4 pulls with chock on 2 pulls with it off and it fires right up every time.

Here is a link to the thread where it’s listed.
https://www.arboristsite.com/community/threads/husqvarna-288-xp-high-top-450.333945/#post-6956915

I bought it off a guy that hadn’t started it in 10 years since he closed his landscape business. Tune up, new air filter, new rim sproket and its going. Runs really strong. Starts quick, but eat your wheaties because it doesn’t have a decomp. If I was gonna make a living with it I’d probably put new fuel lines on and replace that rotten oil pump.
The kill switch doesn’t work, I just choke it.
I don’t think it has the right chain tensioner screw in it. But I’m not sure I’m no husky guy. You can definitely get a plastic cover, but the hitop cover over the air filter is pretty rare.

That thing is pretty sweet. I’m going to wait a bit to see if anything else comes up but I’d probably be willing to make a trade with you for that husky

Great saws but be prepared to get used to starting it. They pull like a bear and if you don't get the cylinder to TDC, it will require some effort. other than that real powerful.

Haha I’ll have to start working out. Any way you could send me links to for what the saw will need. The oiled pump and maybe that plastic shroud that’s melted
