A knuckle saver!

After rescraping my knuckles because I didn't want to put gloves on just to pull on the starter rope one more time - one last time because it broke, then breaking down and buying a replacement starter rope, a new gas filter and new fuel/return lines to go on my mostly rebuilt carburetor (NOT Ryobi), then using that darn E-10 gas and oil without Stabil, and again failing to run it until the carb was dry, I told myself I wasn''t going to do this again. So I am now saving my knuckles, having bought a weedeater that allows for this very starter! Another thing I figured was that after putting in new, clean, NON-E10 fuel with the appropriate volume of oil, and trying to start it, that running the power starter until it got hot was not a good idea. If you have good fuel, and the plug is cleaned & gapped right and you get a good spark, and if it starts away but only for a very short period, then ya gotta check your fuel delivery system. This thing might seem extravagant, but it was well worth it.

Craftsman electric starter


Purchased several weeks ago and so far happy with it. So much easier to start the weed cutter. Even my 80 yr old mom can start it. That's the best news of all. The only complaint is not being able to ship to home or local store. Had to go to a different town/Sears location. Would have been worth the shipping for what I paid in gas and time.
