Poulan 2-cycle engines are used in chainsaws, leaf blowers, weed eaters and other equipment. The carburetor is set at the factory before the unit is sold. Adjustments occasionally need to be made to Poulan 2-cycle units. If a unit runs in idle, runs too fast, stalls or dies, it may be necessary to adjust the carburetor. This will keep the unit functioning properly. Prior to any carburetor adjustments, it is important to follow all product safety precautions.
