    Echo PB-250 Blower

    I picked up a new echo blower last weekend. It seems like it's made really well, however it was extremely hard to start on the first start. Once it's warm it will restart with one pull. The first start out of the box took about 50 pulls or more. It ran great once it started and like I said once warm it starts with one pull. I followed the cold start directions on the first start. Is this normal?
