Strikemaster 10" auger with 2HP motor?

4 posts in this topic

I was thinking about buying a Strikemaster 10" power auger with a 2Hp motor and I was wondering if anyone has had any problems with them. I have used a 9" and really liked the light weight and speed of it but I have heard that the 10" augers are slow. Has anybody used one? Do you like it?

I had a 10" Strikemaster 2 hp auger and I did not like it. The 2 hp is not enough for the 10" auger. The auger would "grab" the ice instead of cutting through it. I would have to lift the auger up to free the blades and then drop it down again. It also bounced around alot and did not cut a "clean" hole, the hole would end up being more the 10". This was a brand new auger with sharp blades. I returned it the next day and got the 8". What a difference!

I have a 10" 2hp auger. I bought it new last year and never had a problem. It started on the first or second light pull and it I cut up to 20" of ice in no time flat. Granted the 8" might be a little faster but why is everyone in such a hurry? Fishing is supposed to be relaxing! I wouldn't give up my auger for anything!

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
