Redmax EB7001 LOW END problem

I have a Redmax eb7001 backpack blower in the repair shop.
It wouldn't start but had spark, fuel and air..
Mechanic called me telling me it seems to have a problem in the LOW END???
he said it was a little hard to pull even with the plug removed..

What is the LOW END of the engine? I hate to sound stupid here but I'm not a mechanic and if anyone can elaborate I would greatly appreciate it.

-Thanks

I've worked on a bunch of em', and I have yet to run into one with bad crank or big end rod bearings, (except a couple that were run on straight gas).

I'll definitely look on eBay for one. I've looked in the past for Redmax parts but they're so expensive
