Are you a Pull Start or Electric Start Guy?

I used the electric start once just to see if it works. I'm not sure why they put electric starts on them. I'm sure there's a good reason.

I use the rope and only used the electric when I had the key off and it wouldn't start pulling, and then wouldn't start with the electric because of my error.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Electric, there is a battery on the Honda. I have tried the pull start once and it worked with a light pull to start the machine.

Pull, on my 2006 Toro 1028 Power Max.
Tried the electric start once just to see how much faster it would start. Didnt start any faster.

Pull all the time. The only times I use the electric start is when the pull cord is frozen.
