I work as a supply manager at a summer recreation center, so I buy fuel directly for barbecues and cafes.

The American company Poulan was founded in the 1940s, when the demand for power tools, gardening and agricultural equipment increased dramatically after World War II. As time has shown, it was the right decision. Soon the chainsaws of this brand, as well as other Poulan devices, gained popularity not only in the United States, but also outside the country.
At the beginning of the XXI century, some of the production facilities were moved from Nashville to China, where gas-powered tools are also produced. The Poulan 2150 chainsaw is manufactured in plants in the United States and China.

Maintenance and repair of a chainsaw Poulan 2150
As practice shows, the majority of claims of owners of the equipment Poulan in the warranty period are connected with inappropriate service and operation of the tool by new owners. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you carefully study the operating and maintenance instructions before you start assembling your chainsaw. However, this Poulan model has a number of drawbacks associated with unstable engine operation when idling or under load, in addition, the engine may not start or may start and immediately shut down. In this case, the first thing we recommend is to pay attention to the quality of the fuel. It is possible that the fuel mixture was stored for a long time or was made on the basis of low-quality gasoline. In any case, the fuel should be replaced with a fresh one.
Another reason of uneven engine operation may be a clogged air filter. We recommend cleaning the filter at the end of each working day, this will not only help increase the performance of the Poulan 2150 chainsaw, but also greatly reduce fuel and lubricant consumption.
However, engine malfunctions are most often due to improper carburetor tuning. The carburetor is tuned by the manufacturer at the factory, but they need adjustments after a while. The unit can be repaired, cleaned and adjusted either at a service center or at home.
The carburetor is set with three screws: L (responsible for idling), H (responsible for running the engine at high RPM) and the T screw, which is responsible for the air supply.

Assembly and disassembly of a chainsaw Poulan 2150:
Why the chainsaw Poulan 2150 does not start:
Fedor Sosnitsky, 42, Altai Territory:
Poulan saw was inherited, I found a plate on the body with the year of manufacture – 2008. It turns out that it worked for about 10 years (a little lie), I used it for three years. During that time I had to change the tires, chain, and buy a new air filter (the old felt one was in total disrepair). Nothing to complain about the engine: it starts on the first or second time in any weather. According to Pass, the Poulan saw seems to be low-productivity, but you can’t tell it from the work – it cuts quickly. It doesn’t overheat or lock up. It’s a great tool.
Mikhail Prokhorov, 52 years old, Murmansk region:
On the advice of a friend I bought a chainsaw Poulan 2150. He has such a tool, but still American-made. I have a Chinese one. In general, it is a good saw: lightweight, fairly powerful, quality vibration damping system, nice location of the control buttons, fairly economical. From the disadvantages I will allocate not very successful carburetor. I often lose the settings, I often have to readjust it. Another problem with this chainsaw is that it is difficult to find original parts. I wanted to change the guide star and was looking for an analogue for three months.
Advantages: price, quality assembly, reliable engine, economical;
Disadvantages: It is difficult to find original parts for Poulan, unfortunate design of the carburetor.
