A good saw just needs 4-5 pulls when cold and ONE when hot. so in my opinion it's not that bad to start a saw.

Of course i also have thrown a saw away after 20pulls followed by some not so friendly words.  :D :D
I had an 034 that I bought new in 1986 for $335. The pull start FOR ME was like there was a rock caught in the cyclinder when it was the first start of the day.I actually made a bracket on my trailer to hold the saw so that I could pull with both hands.After the saw was warm I could restart normally . Now I am 76 years old and a lot weaker but a lot smarter maybe HA HA.The old German toolmakers that I worked for allways said. Ve get to soon olt und to late schmart. Thank you for the reply Edwin Dirnbeck

How would that attach? A socket would spin the nut off.
