Snowblower--Recoil or Electric Start?

I am thinking of purchasing a small snowblower (single stage) and have been looking at the Toro CCR Powerlite. Should I buy the electric start or the recoil? Is this a good machine? I want something I can fold up and put in my trunk if I need to.

Thanks!!!

Electric start is really nice. Just don't forget to put the ext cord in the trunk w/ it.

I have the electric start, but it's easier to pull it most of the time for me.

My wife really likes the electric start.

I am not at all familar with electric start. If I purchase the electric start, can I still simply use the recoil method if I wish? Or is it one or the other?

Most electric start have recoil start also..
I have an 8hp dual stage electric start that I usually start with the recoil.. My wife uses electric..
A small single stage shouldn't be any problem to pull start..
