It came from a rich guy that used it on branches. Told me he bought a new one because the Poulan pro 295 pull string was shot. I pulled it apart and the flyweel bolt was loose!! I tighted it and tried startin it and it pulled better but wont start. Air filter was dirty. Put echo power plend two stroke and chain oil. I tried starting it for half hour. sound like its flooded or no spark. SOunds like bur bur burr.I held the plastic thing in and pulled the choke out and flipped the switch. I tried every method. Im gonna start it now with no filter and pour a little gas in the carb or starting fluid. I got the saw free.
