Ard Broom leaf blower, pull rope problem

My pull rope will not pull out each time. It will pull out a couple inches or 6 inches and sometimes all the way. How do I get in to the area where the draw rope is?

Hi,

Like most mechanical problems, your concern would require the disassembly for visual inspection. Offhand, the problem could be a loose nut or lock. If you have not performed a similar repair before, then perhaps it is best for you to make use of a repair manual or at least an exploded diagram to give you an idea how the parts are interconnected. If you would be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

You are going to have to take the plastic covering off. But be carefull. Fixing a rope pull can be a tricky job if you have never done it before, as this is a spring loaded pull rope. Once the spring is sprung, you will need to re-spring it, which can be tough. At best, maybe all it needs is a few drops of oil. Past this, you might want to think about taking it to a mechanic.

Hope this helps,
Chad

Ther should be 4 star heads on the panel that houses the draw rope.assuming you dont have anyother problems like a broken clutch on it that would foul things up a bit.

Talon electric chainsaw has no power, changed the fuse etc...any ideas??


talon chain saws have two control switches before they will start. One is the trigger that you pull and the other is a button or lever that has to be held in at the same time. These two controls mean that you have to have both hands clear of the chain before it works.

I have a cat 416b and the front bucket won't curl or raise when something is in it I checked the resolvers behind the wheel on the frame and the seals are busted but a little ball fell out of one of them...


Sounds like that little ball that fell out is a pressure check-ball. Without the ball in place and the seals repaired the hydraulic pressure will just bleed by and not lift when weight is added. You may want to get a qualified mechanic to check it for you. Sometimes that's the most economical thing to do. Watch what they do and you will know how to repair it yourself the next time.
