A Husky 445 has a compression release (about the same bar length) which gets around this difficulty. We have a 435 Husky that has the same problem--your arm needs to be in pretty good shape to pull them through. We have found that the saw needs only one pull with the choke full on to be able to start on the second or third pull. Back the choke off about half to make the following pulls. Other than replace the saw, not much help I'm afraid.

My Husqvarna chainsaw is having an issue when I pull the rope to start it. pull rope moves smoothly when off. when together, only pulls out about a foot. fells bound up. gas and oil new. thoughts


1) Remove the muffler and check the piston/cylinder condition
2) Spark plug color: if it is silver, you have overheating aluminum transfer from piston to cylinder

I purchased a 14" &20" chainsaw Model 8901/8902 and I am having difficulty pulling cord. It seems to lock. What could be the problem?


That is a good and bad sign. When a motor wears out and looses compression it gets very easy to pull. New motors should pull hard and be choppy or seem to "lock" however - you *MUST* carefully review your fuel mixture to ensure you are adding enough oil to the mix - if you used straight gas without adding oil you will burn the motor up and experience difficult pulling. Simple test - remove the spark plug - give it a good pull it should be liquid smooth with no binding anywhere on the pull. Report your results.

Engine turns hard


You may have seized the engine. Pull the spark plug and shoot some WD40 in the spark plug hole and pull the rope several times to see if it loosens up.

Starter rope grabs at times. why?


try using the de-compression button when starting, will do the same as removing the spark plug but without removing the spark plug.

Failing that, remove the starter cover and check starter cord for daage or signs of snagging.

Toro Electric Start Problem


Remove spark plug and observe condition. Fouled with oil, bad motor. With plug removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray WD40 in spark plug hole, pull rope several times see if oil blows out. Spray a lot of starter fluid in spark plug hole, replace plug. Spray starter fluid in air cleaner area of carb, try to start. Replace spark plug, try to start. Ensure oil is full, all mowers have a low oil sensor now. 30w oil. Always use Stabile in gas.

How to take off the fan on bottom of blower?


These instructions pertain to a blower with a gas engine.The fan is mounted onto a section at the end of the crankshaft. It turns when the engine turns. To remove it, first remove the spark plug wire and spark plug from the engine. Get a length of clean, soft rope. Starter rope is OK. Pull on the starter to move piston in the engine down. Observe with flashlight. Insert clean rope into the spark plug hole until it bunches up.Now when you go to remove the fan, the engine will move up, the piston will compress the rope, thus locking up the engine. You can now remove the fan without the shaft it is mounted on turning.

Starter rope will not pull. Will pull smoothly


If I understand what you are saying... The starter pulls smoothly with the starter cover removed or when installed and the plug removed (no compression or spark). If this is correct I think your saw's timing has slipped or maybe a defective decomp valve. Time to visit your neighborhood chainsaw seller/mechanic.HTH

Chainsaw pull cord won't pull to start


Simply check to see if motor is locked is to remove spark plug and try to pull start. If motor turns, then he may have gotten gas in cylinder and created hydraulic lock. If moto does not turn, it is just a few screws more to take side cover off and see if rope caught in pully. In fact, you may want to take side cover off first, and make sure rope pulls out of housing, and self winds, like it should. At hat point, he can simple turn flywheel by hand to see if motor is locked up.

If the motor is locked up, you can put small amount of motor oil, (half a tea spoon) into spark plug hole, let it sit half an hour or so, and then try to work the flywheel back and forth to break it free. This condition may have been caused by running straight gas, not mixed. And, even if motor frees up, it may still need to go in for repair.

We have a couple of Poulin Pros at this saw mill where I work, and have had the piston lock up more than once, from guys dumping in straight gas. Sometimes we'ra able to free up piston, and make saw run again. And sometimes we end up tearing it down and repairing piston ring. Good Luck
