Well, did my first spring clean-up today -- actually, started my first spring clean-up today. More tomorrow. Anyway, used my 16hp little wonder leaf loader for first time. Very happy with it's performance. Many wet and heavy piles it took without a hiccup. No clogs at all today. However.... I think I would have paid another $1000 for electric start. Pull start might not be so bad, but this thing is the most finicky piece of equipment I've ever had to start. Starts great cold, but turn if off, then try to fire up 5 minutes later and you'll pass out from exhaustion yanking on that godforsken pull start. I tried it all. Choke full throttle, chocke no throttle, no chocke no throttle, no choke full throttle, and everything in between. Seems like it floods no matter what technique I tried (smell gas). Walk away for 10 minutes and restart "cold" -- first pull. Anyone with similar experience?
