There is a reason why the word “pro” is stamped on the Poulan brand. This is because it delivers results like a pro. The Poulan Pro 967331001 Zero Turn Radius Riding Mower is a powerhouse of a mower. Not only is it ZTR but it also features a powerful engine and equally impressive features.

If there’s one thing that the Poulan Pro 967331001 P54ZX will not disappoint you with is its power. This workhorse is able to cut or trim up to 2.8 acres per hour. If you have a relatively large lawn, you’ll want this ZTR mower on your side.
The Poulan Pro 967331001 P54ZX is also quite powerful with its Briggs V-twin Pro 24 HP engine. Because of the powerful engine, you get a lot more work done in less time. Because of the less time you have to work and because the grass is trimmed very neatly, you won’t need to use the Poulan Pro as often, which saves you on gas. This also means that your Poulan Pro 967331001 will not wear and tear easily. The durable cutting deck also has a 10-year warranty, more than most of the warranties given by other ZTR mowers.
You’ll also like the fact the Poulan Pro 967331001 P54ZX gives you more maneuverability. This is with the help of the dual wheel hydro transmission. You also get to choose from 6 cutting height options, as short as 1.5” to 4”.
You might find it quite impossible to believe, but it is also quite easy to manipulate the ZTR despite the fact that it does not use the more familiar steering wheel. You only need to move your hands forward and back and you’ll be able to go right, left, forward, backward, and a full zero turn radius. You get to rotate on the same axis, thus leaving you without any space left untrimmed or uncut.
While we’re at it, let’s talk about the Poulan Pro 967331001 P54ZX can offer as well. It has a 15” extra-high back seat that leaves you feeling comfortable while at work trimming your lawn. The foam grips on your levels are also foam-padded so you can grip it easily and not have to bruise your hand in the making.
You may have some problems with the traction that the Poulan Pro 967331001 P54ZX can offer. It doesn’t offer the best traction out there, so if you’re mowing your lawn, make sure it isn’t muddy or wet, and make sure you’re not mowing a relatively steep slope.
If you’re looking for a mower that’s completely assembled when delivered to your doorstep, you might be a little disappointed. Although the Poulan Pro 967331001 P54ZX arrives pretty much assembled, you still have to install the seat and control arms yourself, but then again, this is relatively easy.
A ZTR mower that can significantly reduce the number of hours you have to mow your lawn is a great product. “Great” is pretty much how you can sum up the Poulan Pro 967331001 P54ZX and so it deserves a 5 out of 5 rating.
This particular model of Poulan Pro uses a Briggs & Stratton engine. If you want another engine option but of the same brand, they also offer models using the Kohler 24 V-Twin and the Kohler-Pro Filtration 26 V-Twin engines. Choosing between the two depends on whether you’re only using the ZTR for residential or home use, or whether you’re using it for commercial purposes.
Competing closely with the Poulan Pro line of ZTRs is the Husqvarna 967324301 26hp Kohler 7000 v-twin ZTR, 54”. It has the same sized cutting deck but the engine is quite a bit louder. When it comes to comfort, this model from Husqvarna gives a rather rough ride compared to the Poulan Pro.
Husqvarna also has a 54” ZTR that makes use of a Briggs & Stratton v-twin engine. This model gives a top speed of up to 6 mph.
Therefore, the choice of which ZTR to choose is up to you. Both brands perform well, but if you want a more comfortable ride, you’ll probably be better off with the Poulan Pro 967331001 P54ZX ZTR riding lawn mower.
