    I bought a new bobcat 48 inch w a 15hp kawasaki at the end of last season and i have a really hard time starting it, it takes about 1000 pulls to get started(if i dont use a little starting fluid) anybody have this same problem or can give me a few things to check for

    First and foremost make SURE the choke butterfly is closing FULLY, Look at it and push it with your finger to make sure.

    Did it set in the off season with fuel left in the carb ?
