Like you i have a several Poulans. Think the most i paid for one was $40.00
They get the job done and don"t seem to care about being left in the shed for long rests between infreaquent use.
I have a couple of Still saws they are heavy and like alot of attention. But when it gets serious thats the saw to have (if you can get it started after prolonged inactivity).
Chainsaws: Electric Chainsaws, Gas Chainsaws, Cordless Chainsaws
I always did like a homelite.
