My Dad had a walk behind with a Iron Horse brand engine, had a hand lever to pull and start similar to the foot lever on yours. I never could start it with that and used a rope for starting.

The foot pedal starter was for the women to use. It was the women and kids that did the laundry and it was easier for women to use the pedal than to wind and pull a rope.

I'd rather hop on a peddle! We had a Cushman with a "step start" and it was so easy to start...

Wringer washers is also where the phrase "tit in a wringer" comes from. My grandma had a wringer washer outside as a backup to the regular washer in her house. I remember using it a few times.
