Jiffy Legend 2hp 8'' Problem?

6 posts in this topic

I just bought a new jiffy legend 2 hp 8". It seems to run good but it boggs itself out halfway through the hole. It seems. I almost have to lift up on it so it doesn't stop cutting. It seemes underpowered but my strikemaster 2hp was not like this. I was wondering if it is supposed to run or if it is boggy because it is new.

I just got a Jiffy 2hp. I has worked fine for me. My buddy was using it and it was bogging down on him and a walked over and closed the choke all the way and it ran fine. Also make sure the gas cap screw is open. I know these are obvious things but sometimes they can be forgotton.

I picke up a Jiffy Legend 2 HP at the beginning of the season. I had the same problem, but it goes away as you use the unit a few time. Once the motor is broken in, it should be fine. With the lack of ice this year, it took a while, but after you get the motor warmed up, it works great.

The carbs are factory set and this means that machines will run differently at different altitudes. If your bogging down at high end try turning the adjustment screw thats on the right a little counter clockwise! Not much only 1/8 turn or so!

I use the 2 but it is a 9", I love it.

It does take it a few seconds to warm up, once warm they work very well.

Break in may be a issue, don't force it too much, allow it to warm up & let it do it's job.

Most perceived carb and power concerns stem from not allowing the engine to warm up properly. The carb relies on a certain amount of heat to get the mixture vaporizing properly to produce peek power.

Take 25 seconds to let her breath, look around and form a plan of attack, them give her hell.

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
