The problem with the pull start is the plastic piece that guides the rope through. It pops off and shreds the rope. What I did was I took a rope guide off a weed whacker and used that and never had a problem again. I probably put 3 different ropes in that thing before I solved that problem!
Also, you want to be careful when popping the plastic turnie thing out of it's place because of that spring. I got real good at learning how to wind that thing and eventually replaced that too with a weed whacker one.
Hope this helps.
