      I agree, it is a GREAT little chainsaw....HOWEVER, make sure the dealer can fix OR stock up greatly on the Screw, retainer Clip and Pin, which regulate chain tightness - these will bend and strain over time (shorter than it seems), or from accidental strain and you WILL have to replace them.

      J.B. your hub Poulan pro 400e 18 inch 4.0 hp electric chain saw is great. For many of us homeowners, the gas-powered chain saws are a bit scary, with all the noise and fumes and ropes to pull in order to get the saw started, The Poulan pro 400e sounds like a great chain saw. Thanks for the useful information...
