You’ll see two names on Poulan’s power equipment – Poulan and Poulan Pro.
What’s the difference between Poulan and Poulan Pro? Marketing-wise, Poulan is targeted at homeowners while Poulan Pro is targeted at the professional. As far as parts, the engines are modified a bit for the Pro line of gas saws to increase the lifespan. In my opinion, the current Poulan Pro line isn’t reliable enough for professional landscapers to depend on, and I would choose Husqvarna instead. That said, for occasional use by a homeowner, either a Poulan or Poulan Pro model isn’t necessarily a bad choice for the price.
Currently, one electric model can be found under the Poulan name, while there is one gas Poulan Pro model.
