tincupal: Thanks for doing this video. I was able to replace my broken cord. The only problem I had was I had to tie 3 knots on the end with the handle. The hole was larger then one knot.
lmgpharm: Thank you very much! You are a great teacher...video very clear & appropriate angles, well communicated step-by-step. I'll be tuning into your channel.
Rudy Garcia: awesome video, very helpful straight to the point, just replaced mine using your video, different model but similar steps, thank you!
Erik in Minnesota: I just used the old pull cord and retied it.. works fine. Just snip the frayed end before you thread it through.
Erik in Minnesota: I didn't even take the spool off.. just used a needlenose pliers to grab the end after threading it through. Saved some wrenching of screws.
djxfile007: Hi Donyboy, I have an issue that I hope you can help me with...I bought a used Homelite XL2 Chainsaw that broke the starter rope on the first use. So I replaced the rope and yes, of course the recoil spring came flying out but I got it back in after a while. So I had the rope back in with nice recoil tension on it. Start the saw and I see the rope and spindle are spinning in the housing as the engine idles. Then when I give gas on the throttle, takes about 5 seconds and bam! the rope breaks and the saw stalls. Done this 3 times today. Just breaks a brand new rope in two. But the rope is not all mashed around in the flywheel, it is in the spindle nicely wound. Do you have any help you can offer? Thanks in advance.
Bruce: Can you use anytype of strong string?
Mixology 101: So why did you disconnect the spark plug cap near the end of the video?
David Torres: Awesome! Sure takes the guesswork out of it. Thanks!
Mandy Bunn: Thank you! On my way to the store for some cord.
The Jersey Devil: Easy to understand, I can't believe I actually fixed something! (Of course now I have to go mow the lawn...)
Larry Lafferty: How do you know what size rope to replace it with?
Tyrone Jackson: Hey thank you so much your videos have saved me so muched money
03bonneville: Great video and taking the time to help people out.
M.F. Andre: Thanks. Even an all thumbs guy like me was able to follow your tutorial
William Eddy: What do you do if the cord does not want to "come out" or "go back in" ?
Rob Hoelscher: Dony, this video is almost 5 years old but it is still as relevant as ever. I was going to mow my lawn one last time in the fall but my rope broke, for the first time since owning a home in 30 years. All winter I knew this needed fixed and now April 2016 here in NE Ohio I need to get it cut. I go buy the replacement rope and I think what next? Your video here on You Tube made this a very easy process. Thank you.
Phet Vannasane: Hi, would it be possible for me to use para-chord to use as the starter chord?
AppleDGreen: thank you!, I just replaced the start cord myself!!
