    Just have to share a funny firewood cutting story from the other day.

    You should have seen the poor guys face and his son was bragging about their stihls. ms290 and ms390. What was sad was the little partner 500 out cut them with 20" bar and 3/8 buried in hardwoods.
    Then the father said aint no poulans going to out cut my big stihl them poulans are pure junk. Well I showed up with 2 junk poulans, 3750 60cc 415 65cc. Needless to say he backed out of his bet of a $100, when I told him if you could not out cut the 49cc partner you dont even want to try this.

    I just think dudes sharp chain (per him) and the bar smoking had something to do with his problems.

    Funny how most people sound like they know about chainsaws until you actually watch them use one.

    Getting closer . Soaked the carb while waiting on the carb kit. Both diaphragms didnt seem to bad, so I threw them in again to test, did rip one gasket, but seems ok.

    Same piece of soft poplar. Redneck fix to the case held slamming it into the wood.

    Little Christmas gift to myself today. Found a new to me Poulan model I never even heard of and can only find info in a IPL.

    Had to talk to a guy in TX to find out about it to see if I even wanted to drive and check it out or not.

    It's a 2100. Basically the poulan 2000 33cc top handle made into a rear handle saw from what I can tell so far. Has coil spring AV which sold me on checking it out .

    This saw is a Jonsered design. The saws are really great IMO.
    I have a Partner 710, same family of saws and it is a beast to go...
    Wonderful saw!

    Isn't it weird that most small to midsize saws didn't have bucking dogs back then? I remember the first time I saw a Stihl 020T and was surprised by the steel dogs. These days you just expect the dogs to be there on every saw.

    Guy in TX sent me pics of the Partner 395 exact same saw in yellow. Well almost, I just noticed his P 395 has a chain brake on the clutch cover.

    I see by that bottom pic it has a spring suspension system .Similar to the Craftsman/Poulan I have .

    The thing actually does pretty well considereing what it is .Not really a bad little firewooder if the stuff isn't too large .

    It has some problems though that I've not taken the time to decipher .For one though it had an air scoop gizmo like a Huskey that I thought it didn't need but evidently it does .Heats up a tad bit .

    To clarify my last post I meant the 415 Poulan is same family as the 710 I have.m I like these very much!

    The Poulan 395 is same family as Partner 345/395.. These I don't like very much at all....

    I need to clarify for you now too. Partner 395 is same as Poulan 2100.

    I never heard or seen of a poulan 395 yet, but then again I never heard of a 2100 till this week.
