Prime ’N Pull™ Starting System

It’s our simplest and most affordable starting system. Perfect for a homeowner used to tending a small-to-moderate size lawn. However, because some physical effort is required, persons with strength or mobility limitations might prefer an engine with electric start or ReadyStart ® starting system.

Since pull-start engines rely on the starting power generated by an operator’s physical oomph, our Prime ’N Pull™ starting system is designed around getting the job down with the least effort on your part. Even persons of modest strength can count on easy starts every time.

Ignition comes from a special high-output coil that translates your muscle-power into a bigger, stronger charge for the effort.

To begin, simply push the primer bulb slowly three times to deliver the proper amount of fuel to the carburetor. Then, pull to start.
