Poulan P3314 Gas Powered Chainsaw Review
This chain saw turned out to be a pleasant surprise. When I bought it first I did not know much about chain saws or what I was looking for. I had seen more expensive, professional chain saws and thought of buying them. Having had no real experience with them, the shop assistant told me to try the Poulan P3314 chainsaw.
I managed to save up a lot of money and walk away with a great deal. The chainsaw, which was designed for beginners, proved to be reliable and strong. I had accidentally dropped it from quite a height, thus damaging it. It is easily maintainable so I managed to get it fixed and working again.
Since I do not work as a lumberjack and only needed it occasionally, it definitely proved to be useful. It is light and easy to carry, very practical and definitely a great investment. Well worth the money.
One of my favorite features of the Poulan P3314 chainsaw 14-Inch 33cc 2-Cycle Gas-Powered Chain Saw is the fact that it is gas powered. Unlike electrical powered chainsaws, it is much stronger and gets the job done more quickly and more efficiently.
Gas powered chains are more reliable and give you more mobility. By adding some additional fuel, you are not as limited as with an electric chain saw, especially if it is a corded chain saw. The procedure with changing the gas can be a bit difficult though.
The second feature might be a bit controversial. Since I bought my chainsaw for some basic jobs around the house and do it yourself projects, the 14 inch bar was sufficient. A lot of people talk about how 14 inches is too short, compared to models with 18 and 20 inches.
It all depends on what you choose to do with the chain saw. It is looking for a chainsaw just to cut off additional branches or maybe firewood, and then it is perfect for you. Having a chainsaw like this is very useful. You never know when it might help.
The final feature is something that I absolutely love about this model. The weight with only 16 pounds, it is lightweight and very mobile. This feature is very useful when you need to walk a lot. It is also very useful because you have greater handling of the tool. You can achieve a higher precision, especially if you are making something at home.
Due to the strong motor, you can finish any garden job relatively quickly and have a good result in the end. There are lighter models but I think that 16 pounds is between too light and too heavy.

Customer Reviews and Scores
Excellent midsized saw. I donated it to the family cemetery. On first use it produced 40 quickly cut trunks 6 stacks, from trees that fell during a storm. Light physical weight plus powerful easy start engine, strong cutting chain, and safe, easy to use handle design. Will benefit Lakeview Cemetery for many years to come. Poulan P3314 chainsaws makes great equipment!
As previously said, this chain saw surprised me. It is efficient, lightweight and beginner friendly. It is affordable and easy to maintain. It is not made for more serious cutting jobs, but it certainly is a useful tool for yard work and does it yourself projects.
