    Better News!!

    Update: (6-20-2011)The problem with the transmission has never reoccurred again. It is working flawlessly. It may have been a piece of debris that got caught up in the chain or belt and has now gone away. I still really like this mower. The only drawback is the transmission's excessive noise and the vibration when the mower blade is engaged. This mower is perfect for small yards and has plenty power to cut a really thick lawn.It may also be noteworthy that Sears and Snapper all use this same type of transmission. I have not tried their mowers but I do know they cost two or three times as much as the Weed Eater One.I have had my Weed Eater We-One for about a month now. I like it very much and will list below my pros and cons:Cons:1. Replacement battery costs almost $50. It is a closed wet cell like that used on kids electric cars.2. The instructions say not to "shift on the go" You are supposed to stop then shift... 4/5 J. Haindel "Jay" (Louisiana) - See all my reviews, May 22, 2010

    Good little mower UPDATE

    I have never had a riding lawn mower before. The last year or so I have been thinking about getting a small lawn mower. My lawn is average. Takes about 45 minutes to cut it. So I wanted one that was small & fit through the gate to the back yard. Sears has a craftsman rear engine for $1400. That's more than I wanted to spend plus it maybe to but for my yard. So I seen this Weedeater at Wal-mart for $650. It was the perfect size. It stared right up & was easy to use. I cut my yard & it did a great job. I was real pleased. The only problem I ran into is the mower can not do hills. I have a very small hill & it would not make it up it no matter what I tried. It made it down the hill great. So I will go down & not up. I would say if you have flat yard this is a great mower & go for it.CORRECTION - I was wrong about the hills. A gentleman called & asked about the mower & stated he had a hill in his back yard he was concerned about. He lived across town so I fired my WE-ONE up and... 5/5 Jack Gilliam (Virginia USA) - See all my reviews, March 29, 2010

    So far, so good.

    With this being a new item this year, early availability has been low. Found that one of the Big Box retailers had received one or two each and thought I'd snag one quick as they could be in short supply. Going on faith, as no reviews to be found yet, I brought one home still crated. Was very pleased with quality at first sight, found it to be very simple to assemble and it started right up with just some fuel...oil already installed. I had read about the new Briggs 875 engine and although no HP rating, the 8.75 torqe rating was listed. The engine is very quiet with a nice muffler system and it moves the mower over grass very well. Engaging the mower deck (belt driven so do so slowly, the noise level increases while turning the drive pulleys and the blade and the enging revs with the increased load. As it is only mid March, I haven't cut grass with it yet, but I expect it will do so nicely. There are 3 forward speeds and I am hopeful that it will cut well at the fastest... 4/5 Michael Maglio (Clarence, NY) - See all my reviews, March 21, 2010

    Great saw for the money

    0 4/5 Mo-Te (Epping, NH) - See all my reviews This review is from: Poulan P4018 18-Inch 40cc 2-Cycle Gas-Powered Easy Start Chain Saw with Case (Lawn & Patio) I bought this saw for general use around my yard. For the money, its a great saw. I used it all day yesterday and it ran great. The only flaw I found was a cheap pull-cord setup that you need to be careful with. The pullcord housing and fly-wheel is all made of plastic...so I can tell Ill have to replace that at some point. Other than that, the saw runs great, and does a great job. FYI the saw does NOT come ready to go. Make sure you tighten the bar support bolts and add all the fluids. Great saw just to have at the house for occasional use. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 16, 2006

    Decent saw

    I bought this saw online because we had a state record ice storm with lots of tree damage here in Oklahoma in December 2007 and all the local stores were sold out of saws.I've owned a wild thing before and used it for 3 years on an occasional basis, cutting about 3 ricks of red oak wood per season. So far, I've got about 20 hours on this saw and it still works like a champ. I'm using it to limb and cut some 12" to 15" trees completely down into firewood.A tip for those who wrote bad reviews - if this saw ( or any other ) is hard to start, try this: Choke full on - pull one time. If it doesn't start put choke half on - pull one time - if it doesn't start choke all the way in and pull one time. This has never failed for me. When the weather is really cold, after it starts let it warm up a bit.Bottom line - decent saw for the money. If you cut wood for a living or want a saw that is more forgiving of those who don't have the apptitude for... 4/5 M. Stephens "wood cutter" (TULSA, OK USA) - See all my reviews, January 20, 2008

    Very Disappointed

    (My review is for the yellow Poulan Pro version that seems to have been discontinued, but upon inspection I believe it to be essentially the same saw.)I purchased this saw in the spring from one of the big-box stores and have used it several times. I've taken out two fairly large (14"+ diameter) trees on my property along with several small ones. Like one of the other reviewers, I found that the chain needs constant adjustment. I realize that a new saw needs this more than one that's broken in, but it's still too much. Also, the starter pulley kept sticking on me, leaving the cord hanging out, and it's a huge pain to fix (the pulley is cheap plastic).When it works, the saw cuts fine. It starts reasonably easily and has plenty of power. The saw is fairly easy to handle and has decent ergonomics for occasional use, even light firewood-cutting. However, it's cheaply made and evidently cannot stand up to even moderate use. Sure, it's less expensive than a... 2/5 PrintGuy (Michigan, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Poulan P4018 18-Inch 40cc 2-Cycle Gas-Powered Easy Start Chain Saw with Case (Lawn & Patio) (My review is for the yellow Poulan Pro version that seems to have been discontinued, but upon inspection I believe it to be essentially the same saw.)I purchased this saw in the spring from one of the big-box stores and have used it several times.
