Poulan Pro PR621
Broken out of the box
After first start the snow thrower engine was running extremely rough and couldn't generate enough power to throw snow. Also there was no markings on the dipstick so there was no way of telling how much oil to add. Overall a poor quality product that will need to be taken to the repair shop before its first use.

This machine should be named poulan Junk. The stands for piece of . My old Toro CC2000 was better when I threw it out (15 years old)than the first time I used the PO. #1 missing hardware. #2. The second time I started or tried to start it , it would'nt go. The oil shipped with it was to cheap or too thick that I could not pull it over. #3. The cable that engages the auger was frozen an when I forced it I broke the bracket holding the cable to the handle. #4. Today 2/27/13 it was about a 5 inch heavy snow that I had to push it to blow snow. Don't buy one !!!! Only buy Toro or Ariens. I was a small engine mechanic for more than 10 years so I know what I'm talking about.
They would not let me print how I really fell about it
They censored it

Bought this unit online via Fingerhut. Received it in a timely fashion with no problems and easily assembled. Started right up. Had a small storm (2 inches wet snow) and although didn't really need it, used it to get a feel. Then came the blizzard this weekend (2/8) and I knew this would be a real test. It came through with flying colors. We received 27 inches of snow and although it took some time, it made the job so much easier. I was amazed at the power in this smaller machine. Its light weight made it easy to maneuver. Used it all day including 3 of my neighbors driveways and it showed no signs of strain. The only draw back was the fact you do have to reach down over the machine to move the chute but, to me, that's small potatoes. When I first bought this unit, I wondered if it was enough to do the job. No more wondering. It handled the Blizzard of 2013 so I know it can handle an average New England storm with ease.

No adjustable skids
The unit starts easily and runs well.
The problem I have with it is it does not have adjustable skids to raise the intake level to adjust for my gravel driveway.
If the unit did have these skids it would be much more versatile.

So far, it's Great!!!
Have only used it twice so far. But it has been more than enjoyable to setup and use. Starts on first pull every time. I have a gravel driveway, so I'm still adjusting the skidplates to match my correct level.
I actually tried it on snow on my grass to get an idea of how it scoops the snow. It's like a vacuum cleaner
on the grass. But, anyway, I'm more than happy with my choice. I think I will satisfied for many years with this model.

GREAT SNOW BLOWER
This is a Great little snow blower. Bought this snow blower on sale at menards for $329.99 after a blizzard which dumped about a foot of snow. Assembly took only about 15 minutes. Started on the 2nd pull the 1st time I used it, 1st pull every time after that. The blower looks to be of high quality and very tidy design for a decent size unit. The only design problem is the chute. You must bend over to adjust the direction. On the 1st day of use I cleared two 20' by 100' driveways in about 20 minutes each. I have read reviews that say snow blower is covered in oil when shipped from a company, though mine was boxed perfectly clean. Seems to be a problem when ordered online only. Bottom Line: Clears snow great, quiet, made well, good value, would definitely recommend to anyone needing to get rid of a foot or less of snow quickly!

Disappointing Poulan Pro
1st year winter 1 hour snow blow, ok but not great. At 67 yrs old I gave my 2-Stage to my brother because of my Carpal Tunnel... hoping the smaller Pro621 would be easy on me; 'not so' hard starting this season for expected snow fall - "CHOKE TOO LOOSE" and keeps sliding back to full choke; only running on 1" of travel from full choke and has to be held with small clamp from sliding back to choke engine!
