Ice auger repair
I'll check it out. Thanks for the info.
hoytpower, the old jiffy one- armbreaker had a zerk fitting installed on the gear case. In your gear case, the grease may be simply low or dried out. A cheap fix would be drill & tap and install a zerk fitting.
Hoytpower is that for jiffy or strikemaster
Seems like my gear box is grinding. Mine is 20 years old. Just put a new set of blades on it. Anyone have gear work done or better to buy new?
Check out H2Outitters Marine and Sport Repair. They are a Master Strikemaster Master Service Center. 17207 198th Avenue, Big Lake Mn 55309. (763) 262-2628. They have done work for me and some friends. Communication is top notch! Tim and Bill know there stuff.
I had lots of holes from my early purchase, when Strikemasters had metal handles. After over ten years of use it started to get weak so I brought it to my local Green Bay guy. He ground the valves and seats and it was like new again. Lots of small engine guys have a backlog of repairs now so be prepared to wait in line for a while. Now I change the blades at their first sign of wear. Hope it lasts another decade.
Any suggestions for an honest and reliable place in the Milwaukee area, to get my StrikeMaster running better.
