To me if it's hard to start it's not a machine I want. My Shindaiwa equipment have always been 1 to 2 pull machines, even after sitting over the winter and being 10+ years old...start right up and ready to work right away. My newest purchases have been Husqvarna and they don't start quite as easily as my Shindaiwa stuff but still they start quickly and are ready to work with minimal warmup. I do agree that a handheld blower is good for working in confined spaces like shrubs against a house. You can scorch vinyl siding trying to use a backpack blower in areas like that....hmmm...what's that smell...ooops. I usually just use my backpack anyway though. I just take a tube off.
