Jiffy Stealth...bass akwerds!

6 posts in this topic

I love my Jiffy! It is on it's third winter and does a great job. I have punched at least 100 holes already this year with it.

My brand new 2HP-8" Jiffy Stealth turns counter-clockwise! I almost was ready to bring it back when I noticed that the blades were mounted to cut that way. I had always used Strikemaster augers in the past and I know they turn clockwise. I guess the engineers at Jiffy didn't want anyone putting Lazer lower units on their powerheads. (By the way, I love the auger!)

Jiffy/Feldmann Engineering always has ran their gearbox's in that manor. They feel it imposes less wear on the drive that way.

Tecumseh makes Jiffy engines to their exclusive specification, and they have been the engine supplier since Feldmann Engineering invented the power ice drill and began selling it in 1951.

Jiffy still designs and manufactures everything else themselves, including the gearbox, drills, blades and accessories!

That's the reason why they say, "We Put The World on Ice.™"!, it's because they did.

So as I see it, it's the rest of the ice auger world that is kinda backward.

Yep the always spin backward from the others. Like Eddy said they have been doing it like that since 1951. So it wasn't done like that to keep people from putting strikemaster bits on a jiffy because they have been around longer. The steaths are a great auger and I love mine just about the best thing that I bought this past year.

I just received a 2hp 8 inch Jiffy Stealth for Christmas and have a question for anyone that can help. My concern is when I give it gas the auger seems to engage very quickly and almost with a bang. My old model thirty seemed to engage smoothly and work up to full speed. The stealth runs and cuts great, but I'm wondering if the way mine is engaging is going to be hard on the gearbox. Do I need to be concerned or will this get better when it's broke in a bit more.

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
