? on Jiffy Stealth

3 posts in this topic

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 know what your talking about. Mine does the same thing. I have a 9 inch, and when I first got I thought the gear box was going out. That was 4 years ago, it still does the same thing today. I would have to assume that this is normal running for the Jiffy. I've have never had a problem with this auger other than replaceing blades about once a year. That's just from normal use. It's been a great auger.h

I own a Jiffy 8" Legend that is on it's third winter. They do have a tendancy to be a little tight out of the box, but only get better as you use them. Drill a bunch of holes with it to break it in. Mine took about a season to really operate like I expected. It is a very nice auger.
