    Hi John, Trent generators were taken over by Planetgenerators......a fun member but no posts/threads since 2010.

    i believe Planetgen folded as a company according to a past thread on here by the joint owner, Martin, so you may have trouble locating genuine spares.

    not sure but i think Trent basically rebadged other makes under licence, so it could be a clarke or maybe a kipor

    Thanks John.
    It's identical in appearance to the Clarke ones.
    The pull string got busted, replaced it, but now looks like I need a new recoil assembly.
    Local lawnmower centre may be able to help.
