Yours sat longer, so it may just need good gas or it may need a carb cleaning.  Before you pull the carbs, if new gas alone does not work, get a can of Techron at the auto parts store and use some (not the whole can, that treats about ten gallons or more; prorate down to about a quarter or fifth can at a time)
