Poulan Pro is a piece of junk. Please don't buy!

Pros:It was inexpensive to purchase. But you get what you pay for.

Cons:Unreliable, poor manuevering, poor cut, underpowered.

The Bottom Line: Don't buy a Poulan or Craftsman riding lawn mower. (Both are built by Electrolux). They may be inexpensive, but you will pay for it in the long run.


Purchased a Poulan Pro riding mower from a local hardware chain, whose name shall remain...Buchheit's. It had a Briggs & Stratton V twin motor with a 2 year warranty. How can one go wrong? Well I did. It rattles consistently and doesn't have the power to go up a slight incline with the mower deck engaged. It never mowed cleanly, leaving a high section in the middle of your cut. It was about as manueverable as a WW I dreadnought. It broke down in the first year, electrical problem. The generator was not functioning, but it was repaired under warranty. The second year, the battery kept dying, even after trickle charging it. Replaced battery and it died. Bought a jump starter, which was cheaper. The third year, the motor just stopped. Tried to restart it and the crankshaft just spun. I paid $2500 for it, I expected more than 3 years of use.

Took it to the hardware store, they also have a Briggs & Stratton repair shop. Kept it for a week and never called me. I called, and they said that they were going to get me an estimate. They didn't call me, so I called them. Oh, yea, the mechanic took a look at it, let me have him get a hold of you. He never called me, so once again I called him again. (By this time, my yard is looking like a tropical rain forest.) Oh, yea, the mechanic looked at it and said it needed a new engine. What? Could you be more specific? No they couldn't. I called and no luck on getting any specifics. Well I wasnt going to spend that kind of money, putting bad after bad is not very smart.

Going out and buying a John Deere or a Dixon. Want a piece of crap yellow and brown mower? Sell it to you cheap!
