Is electric start kit available anywhere?

I like the power start but, predator doesn't look like the have that on their new engines.

Thanks

HF sells a set off 1/4" hex drive adapters : 1/2, 3/8 and 1/4 drives for 2.99. The Farm project guy was my inspiration. OTOH , the 212 cc Predator starts very easily using the recoil.

In case your worried about how hard this engine is to start.
I put the 8hp on this snowblower, this will be it's 4th winter, usually starts first pull, 2nd pull at most.

I have the same exact 301cc engine in my old Bolens 1250

Starts first pull, every time
