Greetings,

My name isXXXXX and I am here to help the best I can. My goal is 100% satisfaction. Let's get started.

 

I Have seen your question lying around for several days.

 

The problem is, your "Brand" of equipment is virtually unknown and is made on mainland china.

Better yet, it may have been made on mainland china (past tense).

 

Often, these types of products are a "one time run" where a company tools up to make a product, churns them out cheaply and quickly, then sells all they can to one distributor and never makes it again.

 

I can only find a record of One company selling this rotovator.

 

They were selling them on ebay for a time under the name direct power..

 

Most ebay customers have reported that they do not answer their emails although the company claims to answer them within 24 hours.

 

I would start there and ask them if they can get the cable.

 

Here is their ebay ad

 

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Maxtra-4HP-Petrol-Rotovator-Tiller-Cultivator-Rotavator-/310244165174

 

Or you can find the email link here better

 

Just click on contact member from this page.

Yes, you will have to login to ebay first.

http://feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=direct_power&ftab=AllFeedback

 

Further research shows the company doing business on Amazon.com

 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/seller/about-seller.html?ie=UTF8&marketplaceID=A1F83G8C2ARO7P&isCBA=&seller=A2ZPSKSHS6JL80&isPopup=

 

But they are very secretive about who they are.

 

The only HINT is that the have an actual email address there

 

amazon@healthlinemassage.co.uk

 

This leads me to believe that this website represents the company behind the company "Direct Power". If not, they at least know something about it.

 

http://www.healthlinemassage.co.uk/

 

But they post ZERO address or phone number information at all on their site. (not a good sign).

 

They do have a live chat or feedback section that you may try to see if it helps you

 

http://www.healthlinemassage.co.uk/company/contact-us

 

After MUCH research, I was able to determine the person / company that registered the domain name for the web site. This is the last information that I can find on them.

 

You may have to face the possibility that you have purchased a "throw-away" piece of equipment that has no support or spares available.

 

There is a company called http://www.oldmowerparts.com/

I know they have a cable making tool.

As a last resort, you could send them the cable, and they could copy it and send it back.

But the postage would Eat you up.

 

Perhaps a series of photographs (12 to 15) of it it along with perfect measurements might allow them to help make a cable for you (or match it with one of the 100,000 parts they do have for other brands.
