Boliy gen. pull start

I am thinking of getting a Boliy. I won't use it much and want to get the one without the starter. Does anyone have experience using the pull start? How hard is it to pull? I am 65 and in decent shape healthwise, but wonder if it takes a REALLY big yank to start.

Ours is a Champion pull start. I'm 67 and don't have any trouble. Larry

My Honda's are real easy and I'm an old geezer also. I would imagine the Boliy is easy also. Your not turning much motor.

Only tried mine to be sure it worked but a fairly easy pull, I usually use the electric start.

our Boliy is pretty easy, comparable to a chain saw as far as pull start. You might want to reconsider the electric start though, sure is handy.

I have the pull start Boilly. Pulls easily, but hard to start UNLESS I turn the fuel knob to ON! (maybe that's because of my being 72) I elected for the pull start because the elec start was quite a bit heavier.
