Finger Tip Starting of Two-Cycle Lawn Mower Engines 630285

The design history and description of a new starter system for two 2-cycle lawn mower engines are given.

Analysis of energy consuming devises showed that a hand moving through a large distance by the arm, shoulder, and torso is least fatiguing, therefore a cord operated rewing starter with horizontal axis was chosen. The arrangement greatly reduces friction.
