The Poulan String Trimmer is designed as a top of the line homeowner to light professional trimmer.
Poulan Pro is a small part of a much larger company that manufactures lawn power equipment under a variety of brand names. Quality is one thing all of these brands have in common.
All three of the Poulan models offered feature the 2 cycle engine ( oil is mixed with the gas to provide lubrication), with 33cc displacement. The more expensive straight shaft models have the ‘SureFire” configuration, which presumably increases the ease of engine starting. The Poulan brand comes in both curved and straight drive shaft design.
The Poulan trimmer model PP033 has the 33cc 2 cycle engine powering the flexible shaft and Tap ‘N Go dual exit line head. The handle is the standard loop style, mounted directly to the drive shaft in the customary fashion. The weight is a little high compared to the competitors at 13.4 lbs. Count on spending about $130.00 for this homeowner machine.
The Poulan trimmer model PP133 has the 33cc 2 cycle engine, with an added boost. The engine has been upgraded to the “sureFire’ version. The shaft is straight and solid steel, with a fixed line string head which does not feed line automatically when it wears short. This is a typical feature with professional trimmers, the thought being a very heavy line is used that lasts longer than the thinner lines found in homeowner trimmers. The handle remains the standard loop style. Count on spending about $150.00 for this light commercial machine
The Poulan trimmer model PP333 has the same upgraded 33cc 2 cycle engine as it’s cousin. The shaft is straight and solid steel, with a fixed line string head which does not feed line automatically when it wears short. The handle changes to a ‘J’ style, allowing for better control under tough cutting conditions Count on spending about $180.00 for this light commercial machine
The Poulan String Trimmer line feels the niche for those looking for a good homeowner/ light commercial machine.
