I have a Poulan Pro 42cc 18” chainsaw. Can I run a 20” bar on this?

No problem. I have a factory model that is almost new. You can have it, you pay shipping.

We have Stihl saws that we run 18 to 36 inch bars on. Yu really need to adjust your oiler. You would think it would work the same but is doesn’t seem to. Over oiling is always best.

I have both the 18 and a 20 inch. I tried the 20 on the 18. It works just not all that well, underpowered for the larger bar. I would try it and see what you think.. I killed my 20 inch because it was under powered and it didn’t cut anything over 12 inches very well anyways.

Have your say...
