Kawasaki Trimmer starting & new trimmer info

Was at my dealer today and was discussing buying a new Kawasaki trimmer and I said the only thing I don't like about the one I have is that it is so cold natured and has to be choked every time and the colder it is, the longer it takes to warm up and be ready for use.

The owner told me that the Kawasaki rep let him in on a secret; go through the normal starting process (pump bulb, set choke on, crank) and as soon as it starts, flip it upside down and hold down the throttle. Worked like a charm, the sucker started right up and ran like crazy. Supposedly has to do with all the EPA regulations they have to meet. He also said that next years Kawasaki trimmers will add a "high torque" model that will let you run very long trimmer line without bogging down the trimmer.

While I was there, I noticed that they are now handling RedMax blowers. Now he is the only dealer that handles RedMax in our area. He's really high on them.
