Question about Garden
I haven't used a Poulan, but some basics for new machines: 1.check to see if it has oil & gas(check to see if it takes straight 87 octane straight or adds oil just as the manual asks) (sometimes it is shipped dry for safety, and there is a low oil shut-off); 2.pull the cord slow and easy and see if it gives some resistance but does pull; 3.move the lever to choke and pull the cord up to four times, if it acts like it wants to start and catches let it run a few seconds then move the lever slowly to run, if it gets running your set and that is your procedure for ever. if it starts and sputters don't move the choke until it gets going. 4.If nothing works and you have tried many times, remove the spark plug and blow all the extra gas and stuff off and let set 5 minutes (so it all evaporates and you catch your breath) then carefully put the spark plug in, it should go in easy for a few turns, when it is snug by hand then give it a tighten to seal the chamber. 6. start again at #2 if you had already checked the oil and gas. good luck, you can also call their hot line for help, or return it and get an electric if you don't have acres to work on.
