Just for grins remove the spark plug and see if you can push the piston down with a stick or dowel rod. If the piston is up and won't go down you may have worse problems than a stuck recoil assembly.

Skip buying a backpack and go straight for a push blower. If you can't even afford a BP blower then perhaps you need a business lesson. Are you charging by the job? If so then you could fit in at least twice the work if you are using a BP. Or if you are a solo outfit and have a 36" with a bagger, a Dixie Chopper with a Trac Vac, 2 BP blowers (just in case one goes down), and a 9 HP Little Wonder then you will be prepared for any type of leaves and any method of disposal. Also rakes and tarps are still decent alternatives and possibly superior to a hand held.
