Question about Garden

2 Answers

Just purchased a Poulan Pro Snow Thrower and on first start after assembly [new gas and 10W30 oil] the engine RPM has a rythemic surges about once a second. When a little choke is applied, the RPM becomes steady. If I have to bring it in to a Poulan Service Center, please provide a contact number for the Ottawa, Ontario [Canada] area. I understand that the carburator and governor are not adjustable. There is no correct product category for Snow Throwers so I selected Riding Mowers/Garden Tractors, but my product is a Poulan Pro Snow Thrower Model PP208E24 [96198002601]

The surge is common with the governor. Try the unit under load and see if it operates correctly. I think it will. Good luck...Lee

I just bought a Sears snow thrower, I put in oil and gas went to start it but the pull cord will not pull up. I then tried the electric starter but it just made a grinding sound. Why won t it start?


Check the crankcase and make sure it has oil. It sounds like the engine is frozen. If its brand new, take it back to Sears and have them start it for you.

I want to change the oil on my Yard Machines snow thrower with a 10hp Tecumseh engine and can't find the engine manual. What kind and how much oil should I use? Thanks - Zelmo


Zelmo use 10w30 weight oil and just put in enough to reach the full mark. In an air cooled engine I highly recommend you use Full Synthetic oil. It performs much better than conventional oil in an air cooled engine. Change the oil once a year.
