Re: Thought I'd pass along this handy tip...
said by leibold:If any kid is old enough to get my string trimmer/mower/snow blower/chain saw running by playing with it, they are old enough to start using it. Electric start devices aside, I don't think any gas device I own would be able to be started by a kid playing with them.
Leaving the kill switch in the "kill" position is a good idea when there is any chance that children might try to play with it. Of course, letting it run out of gas is an even safer option
