I was kinda thinking the units were flooded from all that primeing. We never use a primer bulb ever. I adjust low needle for winter starting.

Thanks for the help fellas. Embarassed to say but I was unaware the throttle had to be 1/3 of the way open. Just when you think you know it all. Haha. I'll test it tomorrow and report back. Thanks again

New 7500 owner here. I've noticed that the colder it is at initial start-up, the more pulls it takes. Anywhere from 4-8 thus far with 8 when in the 30s temp-wise. Then it is 1 or 2 pull(s) all day after that. If it has sat for an ~hour or more I'll flip the choke on for the 1-2 pull start. Great blower!
