Yeah, but the 120vac starter is really cool. Smile I just plug it into the wall and hit the start button, no battery needed. Once it's warmed up, then it's no problem pull starting it.

You know how I know you're gay?





Oh, wait. Mine has electric start too. Big Grin (but I don't use it)

But my go-kart, lawnmower, generator, chainsaw and weedwhacker are all pullstarts.

Benefits of running on LPG (Propane) & NG (Natural Gas):

NG/LPG is cleaner and cheaper than gasoline or diesel.

NG generators can save up to 40% more than gasoline and diesel types.

During power outages, you may not have access to gasoline but can
still access natural gas or propane.

No noxious fumes from generator--great for campers and close quarters.

Clean emissions are better for the environment--which is great for all of us.


Carburetor will not gum up--for dependable starting every time.

Larger fuel supplies--gives longer run times and no dangerous HOT refills.

Safer fuel--propane and natural gas have proven to be safer than gasoline.

Friendly maintenance--with less moving parts and a fuel that CANNOT gum up!

Longer engine life--absolutely no impurities in alternative fuel.

How does using one button to start it make you less gay than grasping the cord handle firmly, and yanking the cord over and over while the machine sputters and sputters, until the quick jerking movements cause the machine to roar with the satisfaction a you have so diligently succeeded in "turning it on" by stroking it repeatedly?

Well, my generator has a remote control start....not sure how that makes me gay though..at least i am not yanking on something repeatedly to get it to start!

I'll have to get back to you.

I just started my old mower and I think I need a cigarette now.

If I'm picking up used Propane tanks, how do I know if they are any good or not and they can be refilled?

I know there are numbers, but where, and how do you read them?

Got a guy on my road offering me a 100 gallon tank for free. He says he just doesn't use it. But want to make sure I can use the darn thing before I drag it home.

There's a date stamped on the handle flange. I believe that it's 10 years from that date before it needs to be recertified. Is it a 100gallon or a 100# tank? I'm willing to bet its a 100# (20gallons). If you can get it for free, and there's no obvious signs of damage/corrosion, take it and don't look back. Recertification for it is cheaper than buying it new. The 100# tanks are selling for about $120 right now. If it's a 100 gallon, then they obviously sell for much more.
