Thank You Strikemaster

5 posts in this topic

I recently got my hands on an old Magnum III Plus auger, that was used to dig postholes. The gas tank leaked,the sparkplug was not the recommended one, the Gastank was held on with string,and so on and so on. Went to Strikemaster Friday afternoon, and Cy and the boys were the best. Helped me get the right parts needed, cleaned up parts that were good, and sent me on my way. The Auger now runs like a champ, Can't wait to try out the new chipper blade on some ice also.
That was the best customer service ever. With service like that how can you not buy their products..

Benny,
Yes, I went to the factory in Big Lake. They are located on the highway 10 frontage road, south side of 10, between Big Lake Tire and Remmlle Manufacturing (or is it engineering)
If you dont have time to go there, you can also order parts on-line.

Cy donated some drills to an organization I was involved with. Went to the plant to pick up the stuff and got a tour of all the old equipment they keep there. If you think that outboards have come a long way, some of the early augers looked like they came from the Fred Flintstone factory.

ifallsron is correct, if you go take the time to look at the old augers. Pretty interesting!

    • I know I didn't pay $28 each for the trolley. Maybe half that. On the lake so I can't look up where I got them right this second.    Menards has the strut channel and a bunch of accessories. 
    • Strut is $15 per 10' at Menards. I've bought the trolleys from Mcmaster Carr before. Looks like they are $25 each on there for the doubles.
    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
