Quick question for those more mechanicly inclined than myself. I purchased a new Bobcat 36" walk behind April 6th. The past few days I have really been pulling the cord a lot to get it started, took me about five minutes yesterday. Today, every time I pulled it backward (in neutral, no brakes on), the left drive belt slipped off. So I took it in to the dealer. They're looking at it tomorrow, hopefully in time to mow in the afternoon. Anyway, the guy @ the counter (not a mechanic) said to carry starter fluid to get it started easier. Does this sound right? The 15 horse Kawi has less than 10 hours on it for crying out loud. I just dropped over 3k into a machine I have to use fluid to start?
