    Omg is that all, I knew things were bad but not that bad, holy crap did you lowball your jobs?
  4. I am sorry to hear that just pulling starter rope can cause so much wear n tear. Each of us wear out differently. All my equip with the exception of bp will require just a slight snap of my wrist. 2 pulls and away I go. I never have to pull out on the rope all the way. I hope that works out for you.

    It would be nice to have a auto start on my BP blower. But only because I always get people wanting to talk to me when it is on my back. Then it must be taken off, restarted and put back on.

    That is my one and ONLY complaint about the BP blowers. A small battery powered starter and 5lbs of weight wouldn't kill me

    I was thinking today how nice a push button start would be for my bp since most people like to talk while I am blowing their yard off occasionally stopping me 2-3 times even for this or that

    I completely agree. Sometimes I just want to ask them if they could give me a hand and start it for me. Lol
