OHV engine with electric start
is designed for use in cold weather.
View larger diagram.
The PR624ES is powered by a reliable 208-cc OHV engine with standard speed drive that is designed for colder climates. There are two ways to start up the engine: electric or traditional recoil starting. Electric starting fires up the engine by using the included power cord connected to a standard 120-volt outlet and pressing the electric start button located on the engine. The engine will fire up without priming.
The deep-tread 13-inch tires are powered for easy maneuvering over snowy terrain. The drive speed lever controls the snow thrower's speed and direction (forward/reverse). The traction drive lever allows the user to quickly engage or disengage the drive system.
Two-Stage Snow Removal Clears Deep Snow
With a wide, 24-inch x 23-inch (W x H) intake and two-stage snow thrower functionality, the PR624ES is able to throw snow more efficiently than a single-stage model. Two-stage snow thrower technology employs an auger with an additional impeller for greater efficiency--removing snow faster and throwing it farther. The adjustable skid plate allows for alterations to the height of the scraper bar for use on a variety of surfaces, including concrete, dirt, and ice.
The discharge chute and deflector are controlled remotely, allowing the snow to be directed away from the user and thrown at a chosen distance. An integrated tool facilitates quick cleaning of the discharge chute.
Conveniently Located Control Panel Allows for Easy Operation
The PR624ES features a convenient control panel for managing the various functions of the machine. Located between the comfortable handle grips, this panel allows the user to control the drive system's speed and direction, the deflector's angle and direction, auger operation, and engage or disengage the drive system--all within arm's reach.
The PR624ES weighs 240 pounds and uses a 12-inch diameter auger and 12-inch diameter impeller. It is backed by a two-year limited warranty.

Top customer reviews
I bought the Poulan Pro PR624ES in 2010 and used it once that winter; it worked well. I used the recoil pull starter and the snow blower started on the first pull. I used it again one time in 2011 starting the blower again with the recoil pull starter. It worked well again. After the second use, I stored it very carefully and did not need it until this past winter. It would not start. After cleaning out the carburetor, I pulled the recoil pull starter and it broke. The coil spring snapped from its base. Using the electric start the blower started and worked well again. I called Poulan's customer service # and ordered a replacement recoil pull starter. After it arrived and was mounted, the pawls dis not engage the the motor tube.
Poulan's customer service (Servantage Dixie Sales)told me that they had "sent the correct part" and suggested that I call a local service company approximately 20 miles away to verify that the new part was not defective. The local service company never answered my calls. After another telephone call to Servantage Dixie Sales, Poulan's customer service told me again that they had "sent the correct part" but since I insisted that the part was functional, they accepted my email with pictures of the old and new parts clearly indicating that the parts were different. After waiting two weeks without any response (other than acknowledging receipt of my email), I again called Servantage Dixie Sales, Poulan's customer service who again told me that they had "sent the correct part" but there was another part that might work that they would send and refund my payment. I was sent an RMA and FedEx ground shipping label. No replace part has arrived and I am waiting for the refund. I am still without the recoil pull starter which did cause me an inconvenience when a newspaper jammed the blower some distance from my house and I had no way to restart the blower after clearing the jam. Pushing the blower uphill in the snow is not fun at my age.
Even though the product does a good job handling all sorts of snow conditions, I would caution anyone regarding this product's serviceability and Poulan's configuration management as there are obvious serious issues. I would caution anyone contemplating a Husqvarna purchase since they own Poulan.
After some research I have found that there are 2 recoil pull starters for the LCT engine used in the PR624ES. I am hesitant to purchase one since I do not know which on will work!
WORST PRODUCT BY POULAN;
NO wonder the product is DISCONTINUED by the manufacturer. I have a lemon unit at hand;
It makes them all.
Very dependable--every year it needs some repair; you can count on that.
Gets light use and TLC. Still likes the repair shop.
Read the web for use, storage and maintenance tips from non-Poulin websites.
Brand names mean nothing in American anymore. Here's proof.
It is powerful and it does throw wet snow--even bricks...
Performance is not the issue; dependability is.
I read the other comments people left here on Amazon, as well as a variety of other web sites. Generally speaking, the reviews are fairly good. A few people noted the same kinds of problems on several occasions, but having been a customer service person for several years (in a previous life), I thought to myself... you never hear from the happy people, and the upset reviews are few, so I'll give it a go. Well... Yeah.
Delivery was confusing at best. When I bought this from Amazon (Amazon Large Packages), they asked me to schedule a specific delivery time window, which I did. A day or so later I get a series of emails telling me that the delivery window has moved. However the delivery company itself did not change it... they were still on track for the original window. As it turns out, they showed up on time in the originally scheduled window. So I don't know what all that was about.
The crate was obviously opened, then taped back together, strapped, shrinkwrapped, and strapped down and shrinkwrapped to a full size pallet. This outer banding and shrinking is not uncommon in the LTL shipping industry, so I didn't really see that it had been opened until I got the outer wrap off. Upon opening the box, I found that the entire chute assembly was missing. This piece is located in the top of the box, in a separate section of the box, segregated from the rest of the machine. So, it was quite obvious that someone had opened the crate JUST to remove the chute, then taped it all back up again. Nice job people, you really set a high bar for honorable behavior here. I discovered this missing piece half way thru assembly of the machine.
The other thing I found is that Poulan ships the unit with the control panel folded down and attached loosely with 2 of the usual 4 bolts. However one of the bolts (and the large plastic thumb nut) had rattled loose in shipping and was completely missing. This is where the bad crate design comes in. The bottom of the crate is a pallet, NOT A CARDBOARD BASE... so there is nothing under the unit to catch any pieces that fall off in shipping. So of course the nut and washer are missing. This would not be a huge problem because I still had 3 of the 4 in place, so I could just have Poulan send me the missing parts eventually.
Another thing I discovered is that the control panel is scratched up. Some of the labels are actually coming off, one of them was cracked, peeled off, and completely unusable. Labels aren't that important, right? Well, maybe, except that when they are the control operations labels, it might make for some interesting experimental usage for any new operator.
So... I now have 3 feet of snow on the ground, I'm leaving at 6am tomorrow morning, and my one afternoon available and designated to handle this is completely wasted to very poor packaging, missing pieces, and humanity's insatiable urge to be ... less than honorable.
no bueno Poulan. Let's hope it actually RUNS properly once I get the replacement unit.
EDIT - 3/10/14 - Received the replacement unit. I found it was in MUCH better condition, and actually looks like it's new, never opened. upon opening it, I found all pieces included, nothing missing. Setup took about 15 minutes, tho I did notice some of the setup steps were different. It would seem the unit I got before was probably last year's model or something, as it had a few different connections than the new one. Guess that would explain why the first one was opened, old stock. So, the new unit seems to be working fine, I did about a half hour of work this afternoon with it.
Some things I noticed immediately that I liked: The engine has an automatic throttle, so when you dive into the snow with it, it produces more power, and then when you back off, it detects the over-rev and throttles back. This is not the usual self-regulating throttle as found on lawn mowers, there is a distinct change as you are working. That's nice. It also started up on 1 pull right out of the box. About half way thru the work, I took a 5 minute break, and it took 5 pulls to restart again. The pull handle is huge, very comfortable, and easy to pull.
A few notes of things I didn't like: I mentioned earlier that the second one is a little different from the first one. Upon further inspection, I notice these changes: The wheels are wider on the older one, and narrower on the newer one. It stands to reason on snow and slush, wider tires would be much better! Also, the connection points between the control panel levers and the linkages are much better quality on the old one. The older one has metal brackets and spring pins. the new one has plastic brackets with keyhole-style snap-in connectors. Think Minnesota here... -40F with a windchill of -60F, plastic is brittle and cracks under small amounts of stress, and there is a lot of bumping and jostling, and torque on snow blower parts and handles! I would much rather have the metal connections. The gas tank is a bit small, I am curious to see how long it runs on a tank. If you have a large area to work thru, don't venture too far from your gas can, you might have to walk a ways back to get it.
So all in all, this second one is ok but has some lower quality parts. I'm still disappointed that I got a junk one to start with, but at least Amazon was very helpful and quick about replacing it with a new one that is actually new in a "sealed" crate. I upped the rating from 2 to 4 stars now that I have one that actually works. It was easy to assemble, and jumped right into 3 feet of standing snow (6 foot tall plow piles) with no problems. I'd give it 5 stars if I didn't know there WERE wider tires and better connection brackets!
