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.

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.

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

I seconded that!

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.

    • LOL Then YOU my friend are the one who jumped to conclusions in your last post because that was a direct quote from the post you were replying to. You did say it was NOT a joke, right?
    • Finally saw a few divers myself today.  In town.    Yah, I don't think it would make much of a difference if they let us just keep going.  
    • Whoooaaa...slow down big fella. Of course I do not think one party is any more "evil" than the other.  I don't think ANY of them are evil, they just have, more or less, different basic principles. You my friend,  have some serious attitude problems and seem to be very prone to jumping to conclusions and letting your paranoid tendency's run away with you. I have many friends on both sides of the two MAJOR parties and have worked with a couple of genuine Libertarians too. I can only recall a couple individuals I would consider might be "evil" in your sense of the word. Shucks,   I don't even think YOU are evil.   Ha Ha HA!
    • Salami ready to eat. 1/2 goose.....1/2 beef. Much firmer than using pork.Love this seasoning. Garlic, smoke and peppercorns. I always add extra garlic to it. Lately I have gone to using powdered smoke. 1 tsp. per pound of meat. Gives me a consistent flavor every time. No guessing how much smoke to have. Also allows to use the oven inside instead of out in the cold.   Summer sausage in the oven now while I watch football.  
    • --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------             You might want to read what was actually typed:     Do you really believe your side is good and the other is evil? If you do, that's the part that is a big joke.
    • below is a link for doing pork loin jerky. you can use any whole meat for this.       click here :)
    • Nice conspiracy theory.  So how come after they tested additional thousands of deer they didn't find any more, if they were looking for an excuse?      What were you expecting as far as policing the borders?  How many folks would be necessary, and how on earth would they do it?   But whatever.  You sound just like those guys back in the day over by Madison Wisconsin that had big money in their deer hunting land and raising trophy bucks.  No way were they going to kill a bunch of their deer.    And look at it now.  30 percent infection levels.     It's like AIS.   They are doing what they can within the limits of budget, manpower, and politics.     Look at the map of cwd infested counties in Wisconsin... I posted it up above.   Do you want Minnesota to look like that?  Do you want to eat deer with CWD?
