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.
