    Happens atleast once a year. Just that the rope wear out. Always happens at the worst time.

    Well if you had an electric start it would have broken down many more times by now.

    Thats no big deal. I just keep a spare piece of starter rope in my tool box and I can have it fixed in about 5 minutes.

    Ill take a broken recoil over a dead battery or a busted starter any day.
