The PR25PS is a gas-powered pole saw that features a 2-stroke, 25cc engine. It also comes with an 8-inch bar, along with a 3 feet extension, providing a 12 ft reach.

Poulan Pro PR28PS Review
If you’re searching for a good pole saw that isn’t going to let you down, then you may want to take a look at the Poulan Pro PR28PS pole saw. This pole saw has some interesting features, which I am going to tell you about.
The engine of the pole saw is pretty powerful, featuring a 28cc, 2 stroke engine. It has an 8” bark that is capable of extending, giving the user a reach of 12’.
The pole saw comes with a variety of different accessories, including a trimmer attachment as well as a shoulder strap.
Attachment Capable Trimmers
The attachment capable trimmers are interesting, to say the least. With these trimmers, you will have 6 optional attachments. You have everything from standard trimming to tilling, blowing, edging, hedge trimming, and brush cutting as well as tree pruning.
Pull Start – Easy to Start
The effortless pull start makes it easy to get the saw started. The purge bulb (combined with the spring-assist pull cord) is easy to use, making for fast stars. There’s no confusing choke, making it even easier to get going.
Tap and Go
Gone are the days where you have to manually feed/extend the line. In order to automatically feed/extend the line, all you have to do is gently tap the trimmer head on the ground.
7 Attachments – blowing, tilling, standard trimming, hedge trimming, edging, tree pruning and brush cutting.
Easy to Start – the Poulon Pro PR28PS is easy to get started. Gone are the days when you had to mess around with your lawn equipment before you can start work.
Powerful – The engine is powerful enough to be able to cut through nearly everything you need to cut through.
14.2 Pounds – This pole saw weighs 14.2 pounds, which is light in weight in my book.
There’s one con that I found with this pole saw, and that has to do with the carburetor. The carburetor will need a full tank or it will bog down. However, don’t let this sway you away, because it’s still a good pole saw that delivers both versatility and power on the same note.
In the end, if you’re looking for a good pole saw that will help you keep your yard trimmed without hassles, then the Poulan Pro PR28PS would be a suitable option for you.
Is Poulan Pro a Good Brand?
Poulan Pro is a brand that may pop up a lot while you’re shopping for a pole saw. If you’re new to the field of pole saws, you may be wondering if Poulan Pro is a good brand. When looking at all of the different pole saws, you’re going to find hundreds of different options to choose from. You’ll run across the same brands and you may be wondering how they stack up against each other. Does the Poulan Pro stand a chance against all the other brands? Yes, there is no doubt in my mind that they do, and they’re great pole saws.
Brief History of the Company
Have you heard the name Husqvarna? They are a popular company that owns many different smaller companies, and one of those just so happens to be Poulan Pro. Mind you, Poulan Pro originated back in 1946, so they’re certainly not new to the scene. The company was founded in Shreveport, Louisiana by Claude Poulan, who was a former lumberjack. Electrolux acquired the company in 1986 and in 2006, Poulan jumped into the hands of Husqvarna.
Yes, Husqvarna and Poulan Pro are two separate brands, but Husqvarna owns Poulan Pro. If you look at the designs, you’ll see that they look different. However, the technologies between the two are similar, which is why you see many features of the Husqvarna pole saws in the Poulan Pro pole saws.
