Check the piston inside the cylinder for extreme wear. If it feels sticky and is hard to pull it sounds like a lack of oil in the cylinder and it has started to seize.

SOURCE: husqvarna pull cord problem

I had this happen after about 15 uses. I just exchanged the unit. The pull start mechanism can be ordered and is easy to replace. There are parts inside that are nylon and break easily. Any local dealer can order the part for you.

SOURCE: I just recieved a

The Husqvarna 128LD trimmer does accept attachments; however it does not accept Husqvarna attachments.

The 128LD is designed to accept only lower consumer quality "Expand-It", "EZ Link", and "TrimmerPlus" attachments; which includes those from Ryobi, Toro, Troy-Bilt, Craftsman, John Deere, Homelite, and Poulan. It uses a different connector head than the Husqvarna attachments. Husqvarna currently does not even list it on their website. Husqvarna's only information on the 128LD is buried at .

Having a more reliable Husqvarna power head is great, however Husqvarna and Lowes should be upfront that the 128LD is not supported by Husqvarna's higher grade attachments.The 128LDX; which does accept Husqvarna attachments and is available through dealer's, is the same price as the LD.

Pull cord is not engaging - it is 'freewheeling'

Possibly a problem with the stater pawl, you will need to remove the starter recoil and investigate.
