Honda Strikemaster?

8 posts in this topic

I am looking at getting a 4-stroke auger to use in the wheel house. Any advice on the cheapest place to get one? Are there different strikemaster models available?

BTW... not liking the new forum format

I picked up a "demo" power head at H2 in Big Lake at a very reasonable price with full warranty.  Did this since I already had the auger.

​Thanks for the info. Out of curiosity, how long ago?

Seeing it is off season it might be harder to find a good deal on an auger. I would check the for sale sites and the one on here. I know you said a 4 stroke, but have you looked the Clam Drill Plate for a cordless drill. I have seen it in use and wow it was slick and light weight. Most of the guys I know are running the propane augers with wheel houses.

​Yup... took a look at the Clam Plate and also the vexilar k-drill. I talked with a guy that put a Clam Plate on a K-drill and said that it was awesome. I know that batteries have came a long way, but still makes me a little apprehensive. I wonder if the auger from my Mag2000 will work on a clam plate? The vexilar claim on the k-drill is that they have designed the bit angle so that it will work efficiently with the speed of a drill.... Good thing that I have a few months to think about it.

Ever look at an ion.

 

​Nope. All that I have heard is that they have expensive batteries.

    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
    • Feiders sittin just outside the top 12. Really cool to see him doing well this year. Didnt sound like he had much luck prefishing going into the last tournament or this one but hes doin a heck of a job when it matters. Would be sweet to see him fighting for another top 12 spot on saturday!   As for my fantasy team... not so good. I was having a decent year so far (except for tharp last tourney).
