35 in stock
Let’s set the scene, you woken up and are already five minutes or so behind your morning schedule. You get up to go to the bathroom, take a look out of the window and a panic sets in. There is a thick layer of snow covering your entire front yard and you have no idea how you are going to get rid of it all in time for work. Well, luckily we are here to help. Over the last few years, technology which helps you to get rid of unwanted snow has really kicked up a notch and it can now get the job done in no time at all. There are a lot of machines out there which can do this job, but today we are going to be looking at one in particular, the Poulan Pro PR270ES Snow Thrower to see if it can cope with all of your snow related needs!
Tell me about the features it has
The Poulan is a 27 inch snow thrower and its size means that it needs to be powered by a decent engine. Thankfully it is, and the 254cc gas powered motor should be more than powerful enough to tackle most snowfalls no matter how heavy they are. Some snow throwers can be difficult to start as well, but this is not the case with the Poulan as it uses an electric start system. You’ll be able to clear a 27 inch wide path in one go, and with a 180 degree chute, you will be able to clear the snow away in almost any direction you please!
What are the positive points?
As SnowShifts honestly points out, the Poulan does have a lot of good features which really help it to stand out from the crowd. All in a relatively compact 35 x 52.25 x 31.5 inch frame, you get 6 forward speeds, one reverse one, thick 5 inch tyres which are capable of running on even the most slippery of surfaces, and a four year engine warranty so you are getting a lot for your money!
What are the negative points?
Negative points about the Poulan are few and far between but they do exist. The first is with regards to its weight as this is a very hefty machine. It comes in at a whopping 240 pounds, so it will count as a good workout when you are out moving the snow around as well! The second compliant is a small one, but the handles require a reasonable amount of pressure on them to get the machine to run properly, and some customers have struggled with this.
If you live in an area where you get regular snowfall then you could do a lot worse than to take a closer look at the Poulan. It is a very well put together machine and one that could get you out of a sticky situation or two when the time comes. It has a lot of neat features which other manufactures may have missed, but most importantly of all it is very good at shifting snow out of the way!
