    Whoa! Another Poulan man. Old Yaller the 405+ Poulan Pro and his little brother the Woodshark 1975 say welcome to Huskey and Stihl land!

    And by the way, my favorite chain is the sharp one.

    From what I am hearing here I am going to have to try one. This last couple of redesigned Oregon chains have been a PITA.

    I run the same skip tooth chain also even on shorter bars to. Cuts fast and fast to fix if you hit something.

    I run a narrow kerf skip-tooth on my HomeLite Super XL. It doesn't bogg down as much running that type. I really like skip tooth, but I have never tried it on my larger saws.

    Not trying to hijack the thread or anything, but Yogi's high ratings of the "wild thing" made me take a little interest at sniffin' at the specs. I CAN'T find any! Even the Poulan website doesn't state hp ratings. The only thing I found is that at the BEGINING of the manual is states "For occasional use only". I can find cc's oil/gas ratio and stuff like that, but nothing for the motor head in me.

    jags,

    I found this.
    Poulan Wild Thing- 40 cc, 18" bar. 50:1 12, 600 max rpm. 11.2 lbs It did say for "occasional use."
    I also found a site that listed a Poulan Pro Wild thing. & it was listed at 2.6 CI/42cc, and also one that was listed at 34 cc w/ a 14" bar. But nothing else.

    The bore on the Wild Thing is about the size of the bore of the carb on the 3120XP.

    Every year it is different. We remove top's after the loggers are done. We also clean up windfalls that can make for alot of firewood.
