A couple of other issues. It seemed real moody. One time it would start on the first pull, other times after cranking my shoulder out it would finally fire up.

Last issue with them. If you have lawns with deep/tall edges on the sidewalk...these little guys seem to lack the little extra ump to get those clippings over the edge with ease. It will do it, but on a long summers day it seems like it takes forever at times to get it done.
