Question 1: When I first screw on a new propane tank and try starting the engine (weather even in the 30's or 40's) I need to pull the starter handle at LEAST a dozen times. I've tried no throttle, full throttle and everything in between. 3/4 seems to work best...but that first start I need to crank and crank. After started and shut down again...I can start 1 pull no throttle easily. But is this normal for the first start?
Question 2: Once running, there is no "middle ground" on the throttle. It's either idle or full throttle - both run great. I was expecting just like a chain saw or leaf blower that if I give 1/4 or 1/2 throttle it would run at 1/4 or 1/2 power. It does not - instead it bogs down. Doesn't shut off..just runs poor. Is this normal? I let it warm up a few minutes first. I don't need to be drilling holes "slow" i guess so not a huge problem, but doesn't seem right.
Any help? Thanks, Brandon
