What Customers Are Saying:
The reviews for this unit are somewhat mixed. Out of 99 reviews, 23 gave it a 1 star. Only 39 gave it 5 stars. The mixed reviews should give you some pause: while it does perform well, and it affordable, it tends to have a lot of performance issues over time.
The good: The Poulan P3500 tank is smaller and sleeker and the gas tank is more easily accessible. The guard easy to mount, and the unit is quite affordable. It is very handy because easy switch to edge and it is very comfortable to use. It works for about 6-8 years before getting worn out. It is easy to assemble, comes with a full spool of string, and does not vibrate badly during use. The whole unit is lightweight.
Cons: The head that releases the twine sticks and would not release twine when needed. The curved shaft makes it awkward to hold when edging. The trimmer can be hard to start, and keeps on stalling even though given enough time to warm up. Not all service centers agree to repair units from Poulan, and some have reported bad customer service overall. The support handle is flimsy and the guard is too big.
This unit is perfect for home use, large yard, and semi-heavy farm use, but keep an eye on the performance because it can tend to degrade over time.
