      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Strikemaster Throttle Cable Sticky

Recommended Posts

Fix for it: Took a can of WD-40 and stuck the red plastic power sprayer extesion in the plastic sheathing with the handle engaged wide open and sprayed for about 15 seconds till it started coming out the other end and it works like new. Took about 5 pulls to fire it up after a long off season. It's ready to rock n roll tomorrow.

I had a sticky throttle of another nature. I got my auger(2hp) last Feb, and the throttle has always stuck - you would have to push it back to the idle position. Initially I thought it was due to water/ice, but a test this summer proved otherwise.

Contacted StrikeMaster, and they had me try an adjustment involving two screws under the handle, it helped some, but not entirely. The cable was putting pressure on one side of the throttle mechanism, and not the other, as a result, the assembly was
"racked"/"canted"/"twisted" and it stuck.

Called Strikemaster again, and they said they would warranty out the throttle mechanism. I have relatives not far from their (Strikemasters) factory, so on a visit to the relatives - I stopped in. In 20 minutes, the work was done, and no more
sticking. The replacement assembly is a re-designed unit which rotates on steel pins.

The tech at Strikemaster indicated that they have two kinds of plastic handle throttle assemblys - a "red" and "black". The plastics cure at differant temperatures, and they do have problems w/ the red handle/throttles. Mine assembly was
black handle, red thumb lever - they indicated that this was the first of this type they had seen with trouble.

Gased the auger up this weekend, and cut 30-40 holes over two days - works fine now.

Thank you Strikemaster.

I have the black throttle lever and the black cable assembly. It was not sticking for the first few years until this season when I pulled it out of storage. Works great now...

I had that problem with my auger last year. I just had to adjust the screws. Never had a problem since. Call Strikemaster, they will get it fixed. Probably over the phone. Scott Steil
