Strikemaster & Jiffy parts and service

11 posts in this topic

Has anybody confirmed if we are able to get parts for Strikemaster (and Jiffy)now that tecumseh is going out of business??? Do I have to buy spare parts for future use or what is the deal?

THINK ICE!!

They have closed a plant or two, but there is nothing official on the web that I can find indicating that they are going out of business. I mean this in a nice way, what are your sources for this information?

I was told by a reliable source and confirmed that they closed the Tecumseh engine plant. They are indeed the motors that Strikemaster has used up to now. I was also told by a source that Strikemaster was looking at motors from China. Not sure what Jiffy is looking at as they used Tecumseh motors as well.

Don't know what this means for parts and service. When we get more info we will let you know.

I wouldn't think there would be any parts shortage's for Tecumseh engines anytime soon.

Isn't there any other U.S. manufacturer that could supply engines? Pretty soon most of our products and residents will be made in other countries.

It is true that they are no longer making motors but it is limited to the ice auger motors. They will continue to make motors for other things (lawn equip and such) Jiffy is bringing to market a motor that they have had around for several years now. Look for it in the Jiffy booth at the ice show in St Paul.

Thank yall for help. I called tecumseh power division this morning to make sure if the rumors are true and sure enough only the engine production for strikemaster and jiffy will cease December 15th. I asked about spare parts and support but no answer was given for how long parts are going to be available. This really bites the big one. I quess that chicom engine that jiffy has is the one that their reps call the "big-ugly"

So that Strikemaster Lazer Mag demo model wouldn't be such a good idea after all? This is some bad news indeed for anyone looking to pick up an auger early.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
