This saw worked well for awhile, but then the starter cord broke. Tried putting a new one in. The metal coil would not stay in place,I noticed the plastic sprocket which the coil connects to had big chips in it which made it hard to grip the coil. The side housing has a small plastic knob which holds the coil in place, this had broken off. I now need to replace all of these starter parts. May junk the saw and move on. To the makers of this saw change make the starter parts out of metal and not plastic as this area takes a lot of pressure.
