Ariens recoil rope broke
Original Message   Feb 25, 2005 9:38 am
The recoil rope on my Ariens 824 broke this morning(2 or 3  years old ?).  Don't know why I decided to use the rope start.  I usually use the Electric starter.  This rope has only been used a handful of times. I was using it last night.  Anyway it started on the first pull - thats good cause I only got 1 pull.  Now to the point.  I'm looking for a "how to fix"  this problem,  and what can I do to keep this from reoccuring on such a short time frame.    It also seemed to be slow to come out of gear. the blower wanted to keep  going after I would release the drive handle. Thoughts , Suggestions ? I store it in an unheated garage, I also try to clean out the chute / auger after I use it.  The Ariens perfomed wonderfully on this snow.  I appreciate your wisdom and depth of knowledge also general LMAO comments that I have seen on this board (lurker).

I have nothing on that...that is just to funny.  ROFL at Marshall's portrait.  Not quite how I pictured him.  I thought maybe a little taller.

PS - Hope you got your blower all fixed up.

Thanks for the suggestions- Don't know how to reply to some of them  - so I won't.     Sorta like -  not throwing gasoline on the fire.  Rope was broke. Fixed it on Sat. afternoon.   Hopefully I'll get to try it out this evening /  tomorrow morning here in PA.  It was an easier fix than I thought it would be.

sorry  cbh...

we get a little carried away here sometimes,and i guess some of us should be carried away by the looks of things.

glad you got the recoil repaired and just in time i would say.
