    I'm having trouble finding a new re-coil starter for my Redmax BCZ3000. I don't want to go to the dealer. I tried J-Thomas, but its not listed there.

    TMP has it for the same price as the RedMax dealer catalog. I'm pretty sure J-Thomas is in the same bracket. The shipping will probably make the difference. If a dealer has an order going in, then you're on the list and shipping should be free. If not, you'll have to cough up a few bucks for the special order.

    I like to see LCOs keep spare parts for their equipment, especially the stuff that gets used the most on hand toi save on down-time.

    If you prefer 1 Z, 1 Trimmer and 1 blower but have a few others then those most used units sshould have a nice crop of parts waiting for them if they break. The cost of keeping all the belts, filters, idlers and several sets of blades for your Z is cheap compared to how much $$$$ you could lose in 1 day of downtime. Case in point: Trimmer is nearly $400.00 and the starter is a whopping $33.00. It's an older unit so the failure was going to happen sooner or later. I don't see very many broken starters on RedMax.
