Asked by josh February 13, 2019

To turn off the engine, pull up on the key. It does not turn. If necessary pull the key completely out. If that does not work call the customer service number.

I forgot how do I start my blower because it's not starting

Asked by Aldo December 11, 2016

Double check that the spark plug boot is on the spark plug. Mine came off and i tried to start it for 10 minutes straight before i realized that was the issue. Put it back on and it started right up!

Asked by db November 2, 2016

It comes with the wrong oil cap. You need to buy a new one or put a soft tip around the one it came with

Piece of Junk
I have never owned such a poorly designed piece of equipment. Rarely starts. Must take the machine apart just to change the spark plug....1.5 hour job. Whatever you do avoid these machines. You're better off with a snow shovel.
by Stephen Macartney
easy start
light weight and does great job on 2-4 inches of snow!
by Mr P
Not satisfied.
I purchased the PR111 in 2019 late fall. I used the machine about seven times to snow blow light to medium dense snow. The paddle has worn down to the point where the augers housing is contacting with the concrete and the machine will not move forward. A big pain. How can the paddle wear down so quickly? The machine is useless now. How are or what is the remedy for this problem.
by Hugh
Used one year -- Good so far!
Pros: I have used this snow blower for one year so far, and so far, other than a tension problem in the auger cable, the snow blower worked flawlessly. I have moved a lot of snow with this snow blower, and it works well. Cons: It's louder than I'd like, but for the price, you can't have everything. The maintenance aspect is horrible -- spark plug is NOT easily or readily available without removing other things first, or is the carburetor, should you need to do maintenance or need to use some starter fluid.

1.Under powered and reduced blowing distance.2.Poor access to service spark plugs and other components.3. The melted snow(water) from the engine heat sits in the auger chute, if you don't have heated storage next time you use it the chute is either frozen solid or spins freely because the PLASTIC!! gear teeth are frozen in ice and you have to wait til the engine warms up to remelt the ice. Pouring antifreeze or standing the unit on edge works sometimes.4. The paddle and wear bar parts are pricey and are designed to last a short time. My last blower got 9 years this one 2.5. Take off the rubber clean bar on the bottom. All it does is leave two streaks of snow on you nice clean side walk.6.You are always fighting to keep it straight as it has a tendency to pull right.7. Works fine on nice smooth surface as paddles pull the unit but on rough or uneven surface you have to push. I am hoping to sell mine this year and be ride of a piece of junk. Oh husqvarna is the same thing just painted orange.

The belt continues to come off. I sent a request for assistance to Poulon and they wrote back that a written response was too technical and I should call them. Humor me. Just tell me how to keep the belt on for more than 6 feet of my driveway. I'm trying to buy spare belts and your website has pretty pictures but no where to buy the darn belt.

This snowblower does the job for the price and has performed well in Wisconsin 8-10 inch snowfalls. It throws snow well but vibrates and rattles a little more than my old Toro. Also the handle on the chute vibrates and moves so I am constantly reaching to reposition. If I can think of a way to tighten the chute rotation it would improve performance. But it does a good job of throwing the snow. I"ve had it two years and just get it serviced. Again, good for the price and I'd buy it again if on sale.

RUN AWAY... The fist one was shipped on its side, oil all over the place with parts missing. The second one lasted two (2) hours before something broke, it was purring along and then it sounded like the exhaust system fell off. Backfiring and popping sounds were so loud I thought the neighbors would call in a noise complaint to the police, it was 8pm. Now I am totally turned off of Poulan. I'd add a photo but it is in the service center.
