Question about Poulan Pro Chain Saw 46cc 20"

1 Answer

I have the same issue

My Craftsman 20" chain saw is model #360.352010. Runs great but when you put it to wood the chain slows to a stop. I cleaned it very well and still the same result. I also bought a new bar and chain to no avail. I am $80 in and wonder why I even bother. I wish my Sears service center was still open. Have you heard anything reguarding this?

Very likely it has oil on the interior of the clutch assembly. Wash out with carburetor cleaner from the auto parts store and blow out with compressed air. Hope that helps.

Generally this is a fuel / air ratio problem. Usually it can be solved by a carb adjustment. On the carb there are usually two screws, one marked low or L , the other marked high or H. Low is your adjustment for idle mixture, high is for mixture at full throttle. The saw should Always be adjusted to run well during the cut. Make adjustments a little at a time, then try The saw. Continue small adjustments untill the saw is performing well at full throttle while Cutting.

They have two separate screws? one for fast, one for slow.for the slow setting, first start the saw then screw until motor runs smooth without chain moving....if to slow the motor will stop....for fast screw....rev motor flat out then adjust so it screams its head off so to speak....it will need all its power for cutting wood so don't think you are opening it up to much as its designed for it.

Ryobi 540A need manual runs slow/ chain too tight?


Actually, I own one of these battery operated Ryobi chain saws too. It is normal for the saw to run slow. Remember it is battery powered, not gas, so its not going to be a high rpm saw. Be patient whit it, and you'll get about 4-6 cuts per battery. I take mine camping. It sure is nice not having to listen to a two-stroke while relaxing in the woods! Dont plan on cutting lots of stuff, either, or you'll burn up the motor. This thing works great for very mild workloads.
