      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

magnum 111 plus auger 49 cc

Recommended Posts

.035 is the plug gap. The old mag III was made by Osceola Power Equipment which eventually became part of Strikemaster. Great auger.

I'd have to look. I can't remember off the top of my head. There is an NGK plug that works awesome in these engines and will last twice as long as the champion counterpart. I'll have to get back to you with the part number.

Anyone know where to find a parts list for this auger, specifically how the carb throttle assembly goes back together?

Call Strikemaster and ask to speak to a service technician. They are wonderful!

this is a strikemaster auger. it should have a tecumseh engine. email me at shadluckace at yahoo dot com. I have a pdf file of the service manual for this engine. they only used the 2 hp tecumsehs on their auger back then until they came out with the three horse. the other option would be to do a web search for tecumseh engines. there should be a code on the side of the block. this will tell you when the engine (thus the auger) was manufactured. it should start with the letters TC (atleast the manual shows this).

also forgot for a copy of the owners manual go to the strikemaster HSOforum and click on customer support or service. once there click on the section for owners manual. then click on the one for the mag 2000. the mag 2000 and mag III are the same auger they just changed the name of them. I have a mag III plus from 1991 and it still runs great.

I was searching online and found this thread, I found out some new stuff about the auger, thanks. My grandpa has 2 of these he bought new 22 years ago. They still run great. One had the carb rebuilt but that was because of lack of maintenance.

Where can I buy a replacement blade for this auger, it has the old chipper blade on it, and it still has the original edge, it is just now starting to cut slow.

Most chipper blades can be sharpened easily on a wet stone.

Be sure to you touch up the center point too. Often forgotten, the center point is critical to feed the main blade properly.

A file will do it on the center point. Try to keep the angle true, keep the file flat to the surface of the center point.

I use a black marker to black out the face of the main blade cutting surface...then lay the top edge face down on the wet stone..keeping the angle flat and with a circular motion hone the edge true.

Once all the black from the marker is gone, it's good to do.

I'm still using one of these old guys also. Can't see spending money on a new one while this one runs and cuts just fine, although not as fast.

Blades can be found at any outlet that sells Strikemaster items. I had one in my hand at FF the other day. It's the same blade that is used on the Mag2000's.

Good point Ed. A guy would really need to be trying in order to destroy a chipper blade. I usually just touch mine up every fall. The black marker trick works well.

My Grandpa had his buddy sharpen one of the augers, he sharpened the blade on both sides, and the angle is way off. It bounces now when cutting, so I was going to have the blade sharpened elsewhere and if this doesn't work then I would have to buy a new blade.He also sharpened the center point, I dont see how he could possibly screw that up also but I will closely compare it to the other auger. Thanks guys
