Strikemaster Auger Question

3 posts in this topic

What to do...I have a 8-9 year old strikemaster 8" ice auger which is is good shape but yesterday I had a heck of a time cutting through 4" of ice. It would start fine but in the once my blade started to punch through the last 1" of ice it would get hung up and stop. I would even make this grinding sound and shake the motor. Is my auger screwed or what? I though of adding a new laser auger to it but I am not sure... Has anyone else ever experienced this? Heck I think a new hand auger would be easier...way easier...Thanks for any suggestions....

Swill there is a shop in New Brighton called D-rock that works on augers.The person that runs seems very knowledgeable and reasonable.You can find the address under the strikemaster webpage

Are the blades sharp? Did it seem to be a problem with the cutting, or the engine?
