The BCZ4500CL is fitted with Super E-start. This easy-start mechanism is designed so that less pulling force is needed to fire-up the engine. And yes, less pulling force is needed to extend the pull chord but — typical of a test day — the ignition is taking a break. Check the fuel. Check the “on” switch. Check the choke. All fine. Eventually, and without explanation, the engine is revving.
There are many good design features on this model — heavy-duty gearcase, easy-to-adjust handles, easy-to-use controls. At 9kg it is the heaviest in the test, but it is well constructed. For the price it’s a good machine — but you will probably want to buy another harness.
