I'm a single mom/homeowner and not a professional, so this is a little out of place, but I figured that you all could give me some good advice. I live in snowy Michigan and I'm planning to buy a snowblower, new or used, either this year or next. I don't have money to burn. I'm wondering if electric start is something I should pay extra for. Normally I can handle pull-starts but the machine will sit in an unheated garage. I appreciate any advice.
