Wouldn't fancy hand starting one though!
Must admit I ain't looked ... I asked the guy I bought it from whether it had a backup hand start and he said no ... but maybe you can use one and he just didn't have one.
Yeah that would be the other thing, be a bit like fitting a starting handle on a Tdi Defender, mainly useful if you want a broken arm
I will have a look tomorrow and see...
