I've had a grand total of 5 successful starts on mine in a year. The second time, the starter cord assembly broke. Third time, the carburettor fell off. 4th time, it overheated and sulked, which I diagnosed as a cracked (plastic) intake manifold. Maybe it's just a Friday afternoon job, but some of the vital components seem far too, well, plasticky.
I have a little Stihl that starts every time and just keeps going. It's noisier and vibrates more, but at least it works. And it was cheaper. Lesson learned.
