I bought a new redmax trimmer this spring, it worked great for a month or so then it started getting hard to start. When i first got it it would start in 2 pulls, then it got so bad were it took 10 pulls. It has been back to the dealer twice and they got it better to where it takes a bout 4-5 pulls. I had planed on going to all redmax 2 stroke, but am now thinking thats not going to happen. Anyone had this problem? I am starting to hate this thing. Oh just as a side note, i just bought a stihl fs85 with the split shaft at a pawn shop for $70 it is about 2 years old and starts on the 2-3 pull, EVERY time. I guess its time to pay a visit to the stihl dealer.
