Hi! My name is Matthew Christian from Tampa, Florida and on behalf of Expert Village, today I would like to talk to you about the proper use and maintenance of a leaf blower. Okay so we've turned the on switch on or the kill switch to the on position, we've set our choke, we've primed our bulb and we are ready to give her a pull. Let's see what happens here. Okay, you may or may not have heard that but a lot of two cycle engines you will prime it with the choke, give it a couple of pulls and you will hear it stutter a little bit. Typically when you hear that stutter, it is okay to go ahead and turn the choke to the off position. Let's try this again. Okay, so we made a few pulls and we heard the engine sputter a little bit. We are going to go ahead and turn the choke off now and pull it again. This one is going to be temperamental. Let it warm up for a second, we can turn the choke off and we are ready to use it.
