Poulin Weed eater came in its own sturdy box, well sealed and delivered earlier than delivery date. Fed Ex driver was friendly and kind. Very easy to put handle and guard on, used a Phillips screwdriver. I had it ready to use in 5 minutes, not bad! Neat thing about this weed eater is it has a special shaft. It's like an adapter to install 5 other devices, such as a hedge trimmer, leaf blower, lawn edger, etc. You have to buy these devices separately, but its nice to know. It came with a quick start-up guide. I recommend to read it, especially when starting for the first time and filling with gas. Works great! Blade turns when I pulled the handle. Very powerful, easy to hold. Love how fast it cuts grass! Came with bottle of oil to mix with one gallon of gas. If you have gas left over, don't pour it in your cars gas tank. Clerk at hardware store says it will hurt motor of my car. That's where I bought gas can, a good sturdy one designed for gas. I recommend this weed eater. Very nice, works great, easy to assemble and adapts for other lawn tools.

Works Great if you know how to adjust a carburetor
It's got a carburetor. So does every other lawn and garden machine with a gas engine. You have to adjust it for best running at your altitude. It's really simple to do. The problem with this trimmer, and it's a common problem with many trimmers from many different manufacturers, is they don't tell you HOW to adjust the carburetor. This particular model is not difficult, but they've supplied the carburetor with adjustment screws that aren't really all that adjustable right out of the box. The top of the adjustment screws look like an allen head wrench. 6-sided screw head sticking up. No slot for a flat blade screw driver, which is typical and would have made this much easier to adjust. But if you're handy with power tools and you have a dremel or other rotary tool sitting around, you can make a couple easy modifications to this trimmer and get your money's worth. My local store had it marked down to $75 today. The good news is they supplied the unit with a 2-needle carburetor. (Needle or adjustment screw - same thing from here on out.) It has a high mixture needle, and a low mixture needle and it also has an adjustment screw for the idle speed. The carburetor is a typical 'walbro' clone from china. The plate on the diaphragm side of the carburetor has been extended to act as a shield of some sort, under the mixture adjustment screws. It's in the way and will need to be sliced away. Get a heavy duty abrasive cutting wheel for your rotary tool and go to town. Cut it off right near the carburetor body. Now you can see the screw heads but they are buried in part of the aluminum casting on the carburetor body. I cut away 3 sides with my dreml cutting wheel and then slotted the top of both mixture adjustment screws. Now I can get a small flat head screw driver in there and adjust them. Took less than 2 minutes to adjust it for best running here in Colorado at about 6000' altitude. Runs fine. Runs good actually. For those of you who don't know how to adjust the carburetor on a 2-stroke engine, it's easy. If you can run a vacuum cleaner, you can adjust a simple 2-needle carb on a piece of lawn equipment. The adjustment screws are there to regulate the amount of fuel going into the engine. The engine requires a somewhat precise amount of fuel at all throttle settings. Obviously at idle speeds and lower throttle settings, the engine needs less fuel. And at mid too high throttle settings, the engine will consume more fuel. Thats what the adjustment needles are for. Google it or use a wiki page maybe? It's really not that hard. Hope this helps!
Don't understand some that had so much problem with their Poulan, this is the 3rd one I've owned. First one I had about 2 1/2 years when it was stolen. Second I still own for about 3 years now, third I just bought for my lake cabin so my attachments will interchange. I've had nothing but good performance with the first two.
