Poulan, the equivalent of Swedish craftsmanship in the realm of outdoor power tools with its ties with Husqvana, has been in the business of high quality chainsaw manufacturing since 1912. The brand was named and founded by chainsaw pioneer Claude Poulan The brand has gone through a lot since then but even through it all, it has maintained a commitment to deliver the best only the best Chainsaws at affordable prices.

This is no ordinary chainsaw company though. You would probably recognize it because; it gained notoriety in the 1970s after it was used in the 1974 release of the movie “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”.

But, despite its showbiz ties, make no mistake that this is a brand that has pride in its chainsaws. It isn’t just for show and many professional and home user alike, make use of this popular brand. Poulan Chainsaws are even used by Sears in their Craftsman brand.

With its long history of excellence in the world of chainsaws, it has branched out to offer a more upscale and sophisticated selection with its Poulan Pro brand as characterized by its black and gold color instead of the traditional green color used by the classic Poulan brand.

One of the best that Poulan Pro has to offer is their Poulan Pro PP5020AV 20-Inch 50cc 2 Stroke Gas Powered Chain Saw With Carrying Case. It features the ever dependable 50cc 2 stroke Duralife Gas Engine and has the reliable Super Clean Air Filtration system that has been proven to extend the life of the chainsaw’s air filter. It is nothing but joy when you have a powerful 50cc engine with 20 inch bar on a machine like this. It is just the right amount of power for its size as you marvel at its adeptness in tearing through wood.

It also features the reduced vibrating system to minimize handling stress for the user. You can now use this powerful machine for hours and not feel like you have been wrestling with a bear in the forest for hours. Definitely a must if you plan on using this machine regularly.

If you are looking to some trimming instead of some heavy duty cutting with your power tool, you might want to take a look at the Poulan Pro PP2822 22-Inch 28cc 2 Cycle Gas Powered Dual Sided Hedge Trimmer.

This double sided hedge trimmer does not disappoint with its 28 cc gas powered engine powering the 22 inch double sided trimmers. With an engine that size, you do not have to worry about stalling. You can surely go through half inch branches with ease. With the gas engine, you dont have to worry about bothersome extension cords that an electric weed cutter or hedge trimmer would normally need.

Sure it is heavy because of the 28 cc engine and the gas tank but the added weight is distributed perfectly and it is a decent tradeoff for the power that it brings. Overall, if you need to trim hedges, this is a smart and wonderful buy.


With both these products you can use it either as an amateur or a professional, you will leave with an appreciation of the product. There may be better products out there that can deliver better than the Poulan Pro but at the price which is significantly lower than its competitors or even its sister brand Husqvana, you are getting a great piece of equipment without breaking the bank. Unless you need something that can cut through a red wood, the two equipment should work well within your needs and deliver better than expected. Even, it can deliver well above your expectation within breaking the bank.
