battery

just going to throw this out there for the magnum guys... Why does the 425 take so much voltage to fire.. Battery will crank machine no problem but will not fire unless it has been on charger for awhile. But with just a few pulls on the rope and she is running.. What are your thoughts.. Dave

can you elaborate on that a bit! a rusty fly wheel will cause problems? Fires every time with rope.. Thanks a bunch, Dave.

Perhaps the starter motor is dragging and sucking up too much amperage since it starts fine with the rope. Perhaps it is a bad battery. Have you load tested it?
