is this generator push start or pull start like a lawn mower
Vicki Portier 
from Louisiana 
August 31, 2012
Answer
This model has a recoil (pull) starter. It is a small engine, so it turns over and starts very easily. Electric start models typically become available in manufacturers line-ups at around 5000 watts.
