Bad sounds from my auger?

13 posts in this topic

I have a 10" strikemaster 3000 xl that is about 5 yrs old and has ran great up until last night. I drilled a couple holes last night while getting set up and when I went to drill another hole I heard this clanging comming from the head(kachingkachingkaching)sounded like a spoon was bouncing around inside or metal scraping metal. I continued to drill a couple more holes and there didn't seem to be any loss of power just this clanging noise even while the auger was idleing. I pulled the recoil off and looked around for something that could be rubbing or something floating around inside without seeing anything-I even shook it around and turned it upside down thinking there was a loose part inside but found nothing. I have a big fishing weekend planned up north and am thinking that I shouldn't use my auger if it makes this noise because it might lead to something worse but it seemed to run fine-Has anyone experienced anything like this before and if so what caused this? Should I run it and see what happens or bring it in and if so does anyone know a good auger repairman in Bemidji or Grand Rapids? Appreciate any advice-

My first guess is the dog on the rewind is hanging up.
Second guess is the vain on the govenor is hitting the flywheel.

Thanks ST- I'll look into these-is there a site where I could see an diagram of these components? Do you think I can still use it tonight as is or should I take a night off and pull it apart until I can find the culprit?

I would take the night off. You dont want to realy wreck it that can be costly. I have found a site with the power head it was for the tec motor. I will try and find it again and put it on for you. I hope I can find it for you.

I cant find the manual that was online I think I have it book marked at home.

I would find out whats going on first.
You might want to check and see that the flywheel nut is tight to. Cant think of anything else that wouldnt be internal.

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible. 
    •  Ooh landed that one in 4 minutes.     P.S. Of course you haven't yelled at me you only go after the defenseless.  We all know how bullies work.
