Product Description

The Poulan Pro PR624ES is a powerful heavy-duty machine with a wide and high cleaning path. Its main features include a gas-powered OHV engine, heavy duty tires, an electric start, headlight and adjustable controls and ergonomic handles. It uses a two-stage system for operation. Now I will evaluate the features and capabilities of the model in greater detail.

Features of the Poulan Pro PR624ES Snow Thrower

The OHV LCT engine with displacement of 208 cc is certainly one of the most notable features of the Poulan Pro PR624ES snow thrower. It runs on gas and has a standard speed drive. You can be certain that this motor will perform excellently and remain in good condition for years to come. The fact that this powerful motor uses gas is certainly beneficial. You will certainly be able to keep the cost of operating the machine down.

This snow thrower has both an electric and recoil start. The electric one is super easy to use. All you need to do is to press a button. The motor will star working without priming. The recoil start serves as a useful backup.

The auger of Poulan Pro PR624ES 24-Inch 208cc has an extra impeller. This allows the machine to work even more efficiently even when there is a thick layer of snow. The snow is picked up faster and blown out of the chute at a greater distance. I appreciate highly this particular feature. A skid plate which is adjustable is another notable feature. It allows you to adjust the level of the scraper bar in line with the type of surface which you are cleaning. This improves the cleaning efficiency of the machine further and protects its parts at the same time.

The discharge chute and deflector can be adjusted as needed with the use of a remote control panel. This is particularly convenient and saves you time and effort. The chute can be cleaned very quickly with the integrated tool especially designed for the purpose.

The machine is equipped with heavy-duty tires which are 13 inches deep and 5 inches wide. You can be certain that the snow thrower will work on all kinds of terrains irrespective of how thick the snow is.

Poulan Pro PR624ES has a variety of controls, which are very well set and efficient, in my opinion. The drive speed lever is easy to reach and to use with one hand. It controls the speed of the snow thrower as well as the direction in which it runs. With the traction drive lever, you have complete control over the use of the drive system.

Other features of the control panel include auger operation controls and controls for setting the angle and direction of the deflector. The panel is fairly compact. It is situated between the handles so it is easy and convenient to use. The ergonomic handles are comfortable and allow for a firm grip.

Capabilities

The two-stage snow removal system of this Poulan Pro snow thrower works efficiently. The auger breaks the snow and the impeller sucks it in so that it can be blown out of the chute. This system makes the snow thrower more efficient in handling heavy snow masses and wet snow. It is also capable of cleaning larger areas with fewer passes. The auger of the two-stage system does not touch the ground and this makes the machine particularly versatile. It can be used on all kinds of surfaces from smooth ones such as concrete to rough ones such as gravel.

The cleaning path of this model is 24 inches wide and 23 inches high. This means that the machine can handle moderate to heavy snow which is up to 23 inches high. This is a highly valuable capability especially for people like me who live in areas with frequent heavy snowfalls.

Suitability

The versatility of this Poulan snow thrower makes is suitable for all kinds of properties. It is a great choice for families who live in homes with large outdoor areas and long driveways and walkways. It is also suitable for businesses with premises that have large yards such as factories and warehouses. This machine can handle heavy snowfalls so it will certainly do the job irrespective of what the climate in your area is.

Pros

Here is the list of benefits of Poulan Pro PR624ES which I managed to find:

  • Versatile and reliable
  • Highly efficient
  • Excellent user control
  • Easy to assemble and to use
  • Low operating costs
  • Durable
  • Two-year limited warranty

Cons

The things which I did not like much about this model are:

  • The handles are a bit small – This may cause a little bit of discomfort for people with bigger hands, but this is not a major issue, in my opinion. You will still be able to handle and steer the machine effectively and with ease.
  • It may leave a bit of snow on gravel surfaces – This is due to the fact that the auger does not touch the ground. For me, this is not a serious problem as the gravel path will still be very clean and both people and vehicles will be able to move on it with ease.

Conclusion

This review highly recommends the Poulan Pro PR624ES 24-Inch 208cc LCT gas powered two-stage snow thrower. It is efficient, versatile, reliable and durable.

      Hi Paul,
      Thanks very much for informing me about the mistake. I can’t really remember why I stated it as the Briggs & Stratton OHV engine. :-)

      I have made the correction. By the way, many thanks for visiting my site and the alert.

      Best regards.
