Today, I get the chance to test out a mower I’ve been waiting to test out for some time. The Poulan Pro P46ZX Briggs V-Twin Pro 22-hp 46-Inch Zero Turn Radius Riding Mower. I’ve been waiting quite some time to review this zero-turn mower, so let’s not waste any more of it. Let’s get it reviewed!
When I received it, the first thing I had to do was to uncrate it (which required me using both a crowbar and hammer), assembled the seated and then rolled it off the pallet crate. After that was done, I then filled it with gas and connected the battery. I finished it by checking the oil and I was good to go.
Before I start this review however, I would like to say that if you don’t have any experience with a zero-turn mower, then you might want to give yourself some time to pick it up. There’s a learning curve for most people to use this machine effectively. I’ve had some experience with these type of mowers, so I was able to hit the ground running. It’s just something to think about.
The first thing that I did was take it out on my property and cut down a strand of tall grass that was bothering me. It handled this job perfectly. In fact, it handled the job of cutting my lawn very well. It gave it that brushed look that us lawn enthusiasts are always trying to get. Which really made me happy and gave me great confidence on how the rest of this review was going to go.
My property has all kind of trees on it. Most of them are white oak, but I also have some post oaks, some huge sweet gums, and some winged elms. And because there are so many of them, they are always a pain to mow around. However, that wasn’t the case with this zero-turn mower. I effortlessly went around these trees and before I knew it, I was almost done with my property. I know there are a lot of rural homeowners who are going to love the Poulan Pro P46ZX Briggs V-Twin Pro 22-hp 46-Inch Zero Turn Radius Riding Mower. I know, I did.
However, it didn’t handle every sort of terrain I asked it to handle. It did seem to have a problem with some of my hills. Some of the hills that lead down to the lake are fairly steep and while I was cutting them I didn’t feel real confident if you know what I mean. This zero-turn mower didn’t scare me as bad as some other riding models have in the past, but it did give me a start on an occasion or two. I wouldn’t recommend using this mower on steep inclines.
The rest of my mowing session was a breeze. This mower’s 46-inch deck was large enough to get the job done, especially when coupled with the amazing handling and speed of this mower. Before long, I had my property done and was relaxing under one of those sweet gum trees enjoying a nice cold glass of lemonade. I really don’t get the opportunity to say it enough but the Poulan Pro P46ZX Briggs V-Twin Pro 22-hp 46-Inch Zero Turn Radius Riding Mower was a joy to review and a whole lot of fun to use. It’s something I would recommend to anyone who had a bit of land they were looking to cut and wanted it to look great.
This mower is not only well-built but it also handles really well. This zero-turn mower is the kind of mower you want to get your large yard or rural homestead a beautiful looking cut.
