    That's like putting perfume on a pig.

    That looks similar to a Stihl rescue handle, very popular among the racers. They are found on the 460R rescue saw.

    I have a 460R handle like similar to that on order. The 660 had a short Elastostart cord so I have replaced the cord and now I am waiting for the handle. The 460R handle is less than $5.00. That is as cheap a Stihl part as I have ever bought! :)

    Snow mobile handle. I have them on all of my R@CE$@W$. I started that after a missed grab in a cold start 5 cube race in a rain storm which caused me to get a third place.

    That's pretty much what it is. Made for Fire/EMS wearing heavy gloves. The last place you want to have to fumble with a starter handle is on the roof of a burning building.
