Strikemaster LazerMag Throttle Connection

10 posts in this topic

Does anyone know a good site to look at throttle connection for the tecumseh 2 HP engines? My linkage broke and I'm not sure how it's suppose to go back together. If I saw a picture of it, I think I could repair it myself.

Any ideas? Even if I saw a picture of someone's SM auger (behind the gas cap) I think I could fix it.

Thanks!

Goose:

You can order direct through Strikemaster's site, or take it to their customer service center in Big Lake. That's the option I'd take if it's nearby. I've never left there without being happy!

Big Lake is a few hours away so I'd like to be able to fix it myself. Like I said, I just need a pic of it and I think I can get it back together myself. Thanks though. I did talk with Big Lake a couple years ago and they were pretty good at handling my problem.

The strikemaster site also has pics of the parts you may need. Guessing they could get you a schematic if you just asked?

My Strikemaster handle busted last year and I called them and they sent me one free of charge in 2 days time. They may send you the part you need for free!

That wire is in fact what I'm talking about. I may have to give that a go.

yeah if you have your old linkage u can measure it out to the same exact length and throw it on....when mine broke it was right in the middle of hardcore fishing so i couldnt wait for parts so i did a quick fix...ended up never getting around to getting the part since it worked just fine and was actually stronger....but you could quick fix it and still order the part...it's only like $8.

I bought a Lazer back about 6-7 years ago at the ice show. In the first couple months the cable broke. Brought it in for warranty work and commented on it's poor design. They fixed it for free and that one broke again before the one year warranty. Figuring my time and fuel driving from Lonsdale to the North side of the cities was a lot so decided to fix myself. Ran some wire which has held together great.

The other big problem with that auger is that the plastic throttle handle sticks. You have to lift from the bottom side after drilling a hole to stop it from spinning.

A couple years ago the unit was stolen along with the atv it was mounted to. Just like the lemon atv they are both not missed.

    • Bummer. Battling a cough/cold here and the snooze alarm won this morning.  Hopefully I'll get out later this week.
    •   I use them and they seem to work fine. I guess with the poppin version I don't really walk them, I just work them in the holes and around other Bassy looking cover. I don't work them real fast. My guess is you would probably want to use the standard style for walking them.   Cret what versions did you test for walking, the standard styles or the poppin versions? 
    • Looked them up.   Personally they seem underpowered but it will depend on how much water you need to remove when you finally need that pump. The water powered pumps performance is based on water pressure. If you have 60+ psi then you can get 500-900 gpm and it looks like you will use 1 gallon of tap water for every 2 you pump out of the pit. For comparison I generally use 3/4 horse pumps at a minimum for the pumps which gives you something north of 3000 gph.   I'm not real sure if code and insurance even allow them so check first. If you have a small house and if the sump doesn't get used much it might be an option.
    • Just returned home last night. Had 3 Jake's come in at 7am on my 1st morning and decided to pass on them. Never saw or heard a Tom the next 5 days. Oh well maybe I learned a lesson. Good luck to all.  
    • Never saw a water driven pump. The ones I use and know if are the battery backup kind. They are sold at all if the big box stores and are around $300 I believe. They run off of an automotive type battery that has a trickle charger attached to it to maintain the charge. You have as much backup power as your battery has capacity and then that pump is dead as well so it's a short term solution.having a generator is very helpful as part of the backup plan.
    • I missed one last night.   Shot a 3D archery shoot yesterday and did really well.  From there straight to my blind for an evening hunt.  Big tom came in to 32 yards. I ranged him, dialed in my sight and slid one just passed him. That's as far as I've ever shot with my bow but was feeling pretty confident after shooting all day. Oh well.   Sitting in another spot right now and as of 6:30 have not yet heard a peep.  Can't sit long today, dang work always getting in the way of my fun.
    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
