2015 Poulan Pro 2-Stage Snow Blowers – My Review

2015 Poulan Pro 2-Stage Snow Blowers – My Review

Why Poulan Pro: Poulan Pro Snow blowers are made by Husqvarna and are basically the Husqvarna 200 series with less features. They are not cheaply made – they just don’t have extra features like heated hand grips, wrap around handles and six LED lights. For 2015 they added adjustable height handles to all the models. They also increased the engine size on the 24 and 27 inch models and added power steering to the 30 inch. They are just a good, solid snow blower at a good price. All the snow blowers use the good LCT engine.

There are only three models. A 24 inch 208cc without power steering, a 27 inch 254cc without power steering and a 30 inch 254cc with power steering.

Service: You can find parts and service for your Poulan Pro using the Service Locator on the Poulan Pro website or most Husqvarna dealers will be glad to help you with service and parts. The normal parts you need – belts, shear pins and spark plug are the same as the Husqvarna 200 series.

Is a Poulan Pro the right snow blower for you? If you average 70 inches of snow or less and don’t need all the bells and whistles the Poulan Pro is a good choice. The snow blowers are powered right for anyone not living in a snow belt. The 27 inch can be hard to turn for smaller people because it does not have power steering. You don’t find too many independent dealers that stock the entire Poulan Pro line but they are readily available through Amazon with free delivery. You will also see them at Sam’s Club, and farm stores in the fall. I like Amazon because they offer free shipping and their A-Z guarantee. The snow blowers are shipped to you in a box and it takes about 15 minutes to get it out of the box and another 10 to set it up. If the product is defective Amazon will replace it or refund your money without a hassle.

The build quality has been very good: At lot of you purchased Poulan Pro snow blowers at Amazon through the links here last year and I did not hear of one problem with any of the snow blowers.

Buy It Here: Poulan PRO PR300 – 30-Inch 254cc Two Stage Electric Start with Power Steering Snowthrower – 961920071

I’m not sure why Amazon wants $1228 for this snow blower. For $100 more you can get the Husqvarna ST230 with heated handgrips, the wrap around handlebars and cool LED lights. This is a good, solid snow blower but there are better deals out there. (Like the Craftsman 30 inch Model 88396 for $1199). It’s a no-brainer to buy the Craftsman.
