675 Series 190cc 22″ Briggs Stratton Rear Bag Front…
Brand new out of the box. I haven't even put gas in it yet. Pull cord is hard to pull and won't reel back in,
I've put a little oil in it but didn't fill it up yet. I didn't want to overfill the oil so I put a little in and was letting it settle a few minutes. While I was waiting I tried pulling the cord and found it hard to pull. I took out the spark plug and tried again with the same effect.

If the lining of your grass bag is clogged with old grass you should clean it using a jet wash, air line or simply a brush and water. Once clean the air should flow through the grass bag more efficiently and improve the grass collection.
The Starter Rope is Hard to Pull or Seems Stuck:
A typical cause for this is that the engine flywheel brake (the bar you hold down on the handle that stops the engine when released) is engaged. Be sure to bring the bar down all the way to the handle before pulling.

Hard to pull starter rope. It doesn’t pull smoothly. hard to pull.
Take the spark plug out–does it pull smoothly now? If not, the pull cord may be the wrong size or it is damaged and/or doesn’t rewind correctly. Does the machine have a compression release? If so, it may be plugged with carbon. With the spark plug out, pull the engine through several times briskly with the throttle open and the choke off to expel any excess fuel from the crankcase. Hope some of this helps!
Chain saw won’t start – pull starter pulley hard to pull?
If it worked fine the last time you used it, then pull the spark plug and try pulling the rope. See if it’s easier or if gas shoots out of the plug hole. I’ve seen this happen when the diaphram in the carb goes bad from sitting over winter. It loads up the cylider with fuel and makes it very difficult to pull the rope. If there is no fuel in the cyliner and it’s still hard to pull, make sure there is nothing binding the clutch/sprocket. I’ve had chucks of wook lodged in there that caused it to bind the crank output, which resulted in a hard pull on the rope as well.
My edger tipped over briefly, now the starter cord is hard to pull and it won’t start.
Try removing the spark
plug and squirting some carb cleaner or starting fluid in the
cylinder. Pull the starter cord several times for the piston to drive
out the oil. Clean the plug and replace it. Try to start as normal.
If you have starting fluid squirt a shot in the air cleaner to help
make it easier to start the first time.
When I pull the cord, the string is hard to pull and recoils out of your hand about half way through the pull
Sounds like you have two problems. One the flywheel brake is not being released completely and second the flywheel key has been sheared. It is why the rope is being jerked out of your hand. The mower is out of timing and when the spark plug fires before it is suppose to, it jerks the rope out of your hand.
