  • It is a "Wild Thing"!!!

    Oct 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: lightweight. Gets the job done
    Cons: none

    Summary: Since we knew that we should be finding some firewood for burning in the fireplace this winter, hubby and I diligently searched the paper for an ad where someone was selling firewood. We had no luck so decided to see what we could do about cutting our ... read more

  • wild thing problems are mostly the chain

    Apr 6, 2011 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: lightweight, powerful, very easy to use
    Cons: Chain that comes with it and recommended replacement chains are absolute GARBAGE!

    Summary: The biggest problem with the "Wild Thing" or most other non commercial saws, isn't the saw. It's the piece of garbage Oregon chains they put on them. These pathetic excuses for chains do more damage to saws than anything else. They are case hardened mild ... read more

  • Love this wild thing!

    Aug 2, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: CHEAP! Reliable, so much so, I bought another one!
    Cons: If you use too thin a chain oil, it leaks slightly in the case..

    Summary: I must be one of the few people who has had nothing but fantastic service from my Poulan Wild Thing (s)..When we moved into our home 2 years ago, we wanted to heat with wood to save on our natural gas bill. I had a Stihl saw that was several ... read more

  • Don't waste your money on an under-powered large saw

    Mar 21, 2010 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Starts easily following the instructions on the saw
    Storage case included
    Cons: Underpowered
    Frequent chain adjustments
    Had to be restarted frequently

    Summary: If you don't need the size, why burden yourself with the weight?  If you do need the size, odds are you also need the power that the Poulan "Wild Thing" lacks. I was pleased with how easily the saw started, but things went downhill from ... read more

  • Not too bad for occasional use

    Aug 5, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Decent power, feels good in your hand, and it just works.
    Cons: Oil pump gear stripped after 10 hours of use. Chain gear drive is wearing.

    Summary: Father bought this saw a few years ago. Yes it's flashy. Almost ugly? Either way it's not a bad saw. Before I start the review I should say that I only use this saw a few times a year. I've felled and sectioned a total of about seven 10-20 inch ... read more

  • I am a wildthing punisher!!!! "occasional use only"

    Apr 26, 2008 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: The saw would, with a full tank of gas, burn a tree down for you!
    Cons: It just is a tool that belongs in a land fill!!

    Summary: Overall by far the worst piece of machinery I have ever owned. Nothing I have ever bought has made me feel so inferior than this saw. Wild Thing, well put it this way the wild thing turned on me like a revolving door. First it worked, then it didn't, ... read more

  • Just "Poulan" that rope, over and over

    Apr 23, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's pretty
    Cons: It's just not a tool, and It's definitely not a saw.

    Summary: Hi. I'm the personification of the type of customer who Poulan marketed the "Wild Thing" to. I only do light yard work. I don't cut firewood. I don't even trim with a chainsaw. All I used it for is the occasional removal of a downed tree, couple of ... read more

  • Wild Thing! You make my logs SCREAM!

    Jan 10, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: POWER! Long life and reliability.
    Cons: My friends want to borrow it.

    Summary: I have owned my Poulan Wild Thing for about 7 years. I live in a cabin in the mountains of Arkansas and rely on my fireplace for heat. I have had trouble free operations EVERY time. After continuous use for all these years i finally wore out the ... read more

  • Very Good Buy for the Price

    Jan 8, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive and light weight. Gets a lot of work done quick.
    Cons: Hard to start but once the T screw is adjusted its much much easier

    Summary: I was on a budget and needed an inexpensive saw to do some cutting around my 7 acre wooded property cutting horse trails. The saw does a lot of work and is lightweight so its easy on the back and easy to carry in rough terrain. I was amazed at how ... read more

  • It never pays to buy a cheap tool - this saw proves the truism.

    Aug 16, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cool colors and cool name. Price appears cheap until you try to use it.
    Cons: Incredible vibration. Poor starting, running. Leaks oil. Automatic oiler runs dry prematurely. Chain jumps bar.

    Summary: The vibration is incredible. At first I couldn't even run it for more than a couple minutes without my hands and wrists going numb. I wrapped the handle with foam, retained with duct tape. It is now usable for occasional light work as far as vibration ... read more

  • Aggressive Cutting Thing it is Wild...

    Apr 3, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, Strong, Easy to adjust, Easy Start
    Cons: Bigger grip would be nice.

    Summary: After reading all the other reviews I actually took a moment to look at my chain saw to make certain I have the same Poulan Wild Thing. So after confirming I do own the same one, I am pleased to be able to offer a very positive opinion of this tool. I ... read more

  • Massacred by Wild Thing!

    Dec 2, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Comes with a storage box
    Cons: Unreliable engine, flimsy bar, leaks, no customer service in evenings or weekends.

    Summary: When they named this chain saw "Wild Thing", they got it right. It is definitely uncivilized and untamed. Well this turned out to be the worst purchase I have made in years. I have used several chain saws over the past 30 years and my old trimming and ... read more

  • WildThing has paid for itself

    Nov 9, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, came with case, tool, extra chain
    Cons: oiler failed once, harmful vibration, pull start fights back

    Summary: I have processed over two cords of wood, and used it for minor woodlot maintenance. With extended use the vibration left my left hand ringing with short term nerve damage. Subsequently wrapping the handle in foam did help. The oiler broke but was ... read more

  • Poulan Wild Thing 18" chainsaw

    Feb 8, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: based on my experience, there are absolutely no pros
    Cons: end up buying a reliable saw, thus wasting the money you originally spent

    Summary: I purchased this saw at Wal-Mart for $187. When I got home and opened the box and pulled out the saw and the manual. I was shocked to discover that I had basically paid so much money for a piece of junk. My first clue was right on the front of the ... read more

  • So Far So Good

    Jan 17, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, light weight, easily controllable, comes with extra chain & storage case including chain guard.
    Cons: None so far!

    Summary: I purchased a Poulan Wild Thing 2375 LE from Wal-Mart about a week ago. Even though I've only owned it for a week, I'm so impressed with it, I just had to write about it! The "LE" after 2375 just means "low emission", so it's supposed to be kinder to ... read more

  • "Wild" is the number of times you will need to fix it

    Jun 26, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, 18" cut, lightweight, comes with case and extra chain
    Cons: poorly designed, leaks chain oil, vibrates excessively, poor lubricator

    Summary: I have had this chainsaw for about 3 years now. It has seen minimal use, cutting down 3 or 4 60-80 ft trees and cutting them into logs. The first time I ran it, it started on 2 pulls, but I dulled the chain in about 4 cuts (I was cutting a cottonwood, ... read more

  • Good saw for the price

    Jan 10, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy & quick to use Little maintenance
    Cons: Some parts wear rather quickly

    Summary: I purchased this saw at Wal-Mart late summer of 2002, and have had no major problems until recently (sprocket worn). I'll have to see how that goes, but even if that is shown to be a major problem, I used it quite extensively already - cutting enough ... read more

  • Wildly Cheap

    Jun 3, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good cutting action; Comes with extra chain
    Cons: Leaks oil; Hard to start

    Summary: I began the task of clearing a wooded area around my new house this spring, and decided to get a chainsaw to aid me in the task. I went to Home Depot and had a look at what they had to offer. Chainsaws are more expensive than I thought. The ... read more

  • The saw that was designed by Mrs. Hayes Kindergarden Class

    Feb 8, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, light weight, very controllable
    Cons: Cheaply made, hard to service without tools. Gas/oil cap hard to open after awhile.

    Summary: God created the earth, and he said it was good. He created cheap chainsaws made out of spare parts and recycled 2 liter pop bottles, and thus the Poulan was born. I actually have the 50th Anniversary Poulan model, but it is the Wild Thing ... read more

  • Mr. N. Judy

    Feb 2, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: cheap price and lightweight saw
    Cons: parts are hard to find, basically a disposable saw

    Summary: I have had this Wild Thing saw a little longer than the warranty lasts and it has been worthless since the starter rope broke. I bought a new rope and carefully rewound the rope with adequate tension in the spring. After tightening the screws, I ... read more
