I have an ariens 11hp snowblower. when i use the pull start often it will violently kick back and rip the handle out of my hand and it FRIGGEN KILLS.
what is causing this??? this might also explain why the electric starter has some broken teeth on the bendix gear. any suggestions?
Thanks

Paul

You have a partially sheared flywheel key or whatever is used as a flywheel counterweight, on a mower it is the blade, is not installed. Have a good one. Geo

Another possibility is incorrect valve lash or inoperative compression release.
