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!

    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
