My brother-in-law gave us a John Deere 1032d. Machine starts by pull or by plugging it in so you can use the electric start. I always use the electric start the first time, but after that it's a single pull start. Throws snow nice and easy to operate for even me. 6 gears forward and 2 reverse. We had a very heavy snow early on this season and it handled it nicely. Neighbors with smaller machines had a rough time. In the light snow I can run the machine in 3rd gear and it handles 6 inches easily.
