Meaning to pull the pull rope to start it?? No, just set the brake, be sure blades are off and tranny in neutral and start it.

thanks - it does have the safety feature that the engine turns off if you get out of the seat. Does that mean someone needs to be sitting in the seat when pulling the rope?

If the conditions that cheese mentioned are met, there should not be a need for anyone in the seat for it to run. Only when the brake is released, the tranny in gear and or the blades engaged should an operator need to be in the seat.
