pull handle for start up

Only the 3rd time I used my new 28 SHO, pulled the cord to start the engine and it snapped (plastic handle). Looking online I cannot find the number for a factory replacement. There are alot of generic ones. Any recommendations? Thanks, Tater

If the OEM broke that easy , a generic shouldn't be any worse. Anyofthem will work as long as the hole is large enough for the cord on your blower. Not an item that normally breaks often. I have never broke one. Broke the cord a few times.
Any small engine shop should have one. Just pick one that will work well with a glove on.

Myself, I would either bring the handle back to the dealer, or send a photo of it to Ariens CS, and request a new one - gratis.

Yup. If it's new, Ariens should take care of it for you.

That sucks. I also broke the recoil on my Deluxe 28SHO on it's 3rd start. (Got it in October of 2015) My brother pulled the recoil to start it, and some metal clip inside the mechanism snapped. The dealer shipped me a new one and I put it on and shipped back the old one. Not a great way of getting aquainted with a blower, but I forgave Ariens and the SHO served me well that year.

you dont have have to go with the factory starter handle. look around online or at dealers for mitten grip starters and you may find one you like even better then the oem one. i personally prefer the ones tecumseh used on the hm80s for years

Keep in mind that part of the cost of buying a product is associated with the manufacturer's anticipated warranty expenses, so if you don't bring it back, you are leaving money on the table.

A simple call to the manufacturer will get you a FREE replacement recoil handle. But these can be acquired rather cheaply online or at your local Home Depot.

Unless your dealer is 80 miles away and you'll save more on gas money by doing the repairs yourself vs taking it to them, possibly having to leave it with them for a week or so, driving back home another 80 miles, then making the return trip when it is ready
