I’ve been using a BCS 853 the last couple seasons which has been really helpful at my place. It belongs to someone else but they kindly share it with me. However, the key (electric) start on it is not very reliable, and it stops working at the least opportune times of course (like right now!) The rip cord is so long that I can’t even pull it out hard enough to start the machine that way (I’m 5’2 so my arms are short!) As you can tell, this is a problem because I can’t turn the machine on if the key doesn’t start it.
The battery was replaced last year and nothing looks to be out of place or corroded. Has anyone else had issues with this? Really hoping to have it running asap but it would be great to get some tips on an on-farm fix when this happens…thanks!
