      Lasts at most ~100 Pulls
      Lasts, at most, approximately 100 pulls, then rope breaks at interior of starter housing. If anything abnormal, likely only withstood one good kick-back start. I've witnessed the Briggs & Stratton OEM (3/16 inch?) starter ropes last indefinitely with indefinite kick-back starts. The diameter of the Powercare rope is roughly only 1/8 inch! If purchasing, going to try myself, buy for the replacement handle, then purchase additional 3/16 inch para-cord. Handle hole is 3/16 inch diameter.

        This starter handle worked out great, just what I needed. I will probably buy another one. The price was also very reasonable.

        Don’t bother
        Brand new cord broke on the third pull and disappeared into the cord housing. Colossal waste of time on cheap parts
          What can you say about a starter cord...works great.
          Walked in the door of HD and asked an associate "where can I find a starter cord for my chain saw". He led me right to it. Paid $3.99 good deal. Then I got home and had fun for an hour and a half figuring out how to get the "watch spring" winder back together after I took it apart. All done, I did it myself. Hoorah.
