This is a great mower, made by Husquvarna. I love mine and have had it four years now. I don't see these at my Home Depot anymore, but if you can order it go ahead, they are really rugged and powerful.

Can I put a small snow plow on the riding lawnmower

Asked by Michelle February 3, 2021

Answers

Remember, this is a lawnmower only. You will have to design your own blade mount. Check how they design it on tractors designed for a snowplow. You need to pay a lot more money for snow plowing. Get a snowblower.

I believe it is made in the USA, but it has a faulty automatic transmission that will not hold up. I had to just park my Pollan Pro and buy a Sears mower. DO NOT buy the Poulan Pro wit the auto transmission.

Go online and get the 42" cutting deck by Husquvarna, same part, will work perfect. I suggest the upgrade to the pulleys with grease fittings on top. They will last forever.

Can this mower cut in reverse?

Answers

Yes. Reverse does not stop the blades. Make sure the key is in the reverse position or the machine will shut down when you try to go into reverse.

Transmission/ shifting difficult
Three years trouble free until shifting became difficult and needed more force on pedal to switch gears. Read all the complaints on this site and was a little discouraged about what I had purchased. However YouTube to the rescue. It’s a General transmission and all it needed was a tork2 screw driver and a little cleaning of built up grass clippings that got lodged in the mechanism. I had to do it twice because I didn’t take off a debris shield the first time. Lucky I have a compressor and was able to blow out the grass and now it shifts fine..

Spindle on Deck
I bought this a year ago and the spindle fell out of the deck, ripped the belt in two and the pulley bent as it got jammed under the deck...not pleased that this happened within a year of use. I would not recommend purchasing a Poulan

Worst Rider I have ever owned
I’ve had this mower for four years now and each and every year it’s in the shop getting repaired. I’ve owned cheap used mowers that have never had these issues. The newest problem is a blown head gasket, this is after normal light use on less than an acre of land. The deck absolutely sucks, after the second year of owning it the paint on the underside of the deck all started to come off. That being said the deck is also a lot more confusing to remove than my old craftsman was. Anyways I am now researching a head gasket since I’ll have the time to repair it myself.

I've had it for 1.5 years and it never fails. Even after my dog got to a couple of cables and tore them up. I bought a bagger for it. I got .67 acre and mowing pushing is not feasible. This tractor gets the job done. It did come with the blades set at different heights so leveling them was a little troublesome but only because I don't have any level spots in all my land. I finally leveled them inside my shed. It came in a crate and while pushing it out I punctured a tire; luckily Poulan Pro sent me a new tire for no charge. I love this tractor. My brother used to have a $2,000 john Deere and this is right up there with it. Recommend it %100 probably for up to 2 acres, anything bigger I would probably get a mower with a larger deck like one that professionals use. Also the warranty is great on it.

I purchased this tractor May 27, 2018 (WA25046651). At first I really loved it. The engine had plenty of pep and this tractor cut my mowing time. But I cannot give this tractor the best rating. About the third time that I used it, I finally hit something. One of the mower blades ended up slicing through the mower deck. The mower deck seems a bit flimsy so I think the limited 10-year warranty on the deck is probably a joke. Sorry I can't give this tractor better praise. It now just sits in my garage and I've gone back to using a push mower to mow my acre.

I have had many tractors over the years and the Poulan PRO is the best one yet. Not only does it drive smooth, it's easy to operate, and decreases my grass cutting time in half. This tractor has not only met but exceeded my expectations. Would 10/10 recommend to all of my family and friends.
