Question: Poulan PRO Model PP428S
I can not find this Model which I purchased at Walmart on any Poulan web site so that I can look for repair parts in the future Plus spare Heads for the String unit. Any comments.

I located a parts diagram on link removed. Unfortunately it doesn't look as if there are many parts available for this model. Go to their site and hopefully you will be able to obtain the parts you need.
Question: Poulan Trigger
is this piece of crap sold in Metal?! The plastic stretches. Meaning I might as well buy a dozen at a time.
Reply: Poulan Trigger
Unfortunately the manufacture only provides the 530049107 trigger made of plastic. It would be great if the made it out of metal or a better grade of plastic.
Review: Poulan - P4500 P4500
Bad design on the string cover. The aluminum inserts in the cover come out very easily and are then long gone! I can't use the tool with inserts missing, and can't buy just the inserts. I must buy the entire cover or an entire new head. I plan on having an all aluminum cover custom made by a machine shop. The only other option is to fix trimmer with new parts, then sell it at a garage sale. This was a real waste of money!
