Chainsaw Starter Cord


Dyneema HMPE Fibre Used to Create Low Stretch, High Strength Starter Cord for Chainsaws


English Braids was approached by a customer in the garden machinery parts distribution industry to see if we could manufacture a starter cord with minimal stretch and high strength for chainsaws. We utilised Dyneema HMPE fibre to develop a product with excellent abrasion resistance and good grip.


After providing our customer with test samples to be distributed with ground maintenance publications, people began using the cord and noticed the benefits. Our 3.5mm and 4mm Dyneema starter cords are now highly sought-after in the industry.
