10 posts in this topic

I have an opportunity to get a StrikeMaster Magnum III 49cc ice auger at a great price, never used. Is it a good unit ?
I mainly fish from house and sometimes travel, but not much .

$250 Brand new.

Lightweight 2hp model with a 8 inch bit.

You should be able to pick one up used for about $150, I would think.

If you are looking for a chipper blade type auger I would look at a Jiffy. They have a higher gear ratio and will cut faster. Depending on the model you choose you can purchase one brand new for $275 to $300.

If you are looking for a auger I have a 8" lazer Mag for sale for $200. This auger was only used for 1 month.

I would get a strikemaster, im drillin holes before we can even get the jiffy started, and if your on the move a lot i would go with the 2 hp,8" the 3 horse is a bit heavy. The ice cometh!

All Strike Masters and Jiffys use the same motor on the 2HP & 3Hp. So were does the preferances come in for starting?

I have had my mag III for 5 years now bought it as a display model for $150 winter clearance, and it's been nothing short of excellent. I use a 6" lazer head. I have an 8" lazer auger and a 10" chipper that came with the unit that I never use probably should sell them. Great auger. I don't do anything special to winterize it either just run the gas out of it and that's it.

Valv, I have 2 of the mag III's, one I bought at an auction for 70 bucks which is a work horse and starts every time, and one that came with the fishhouse I bought, that has seen better days but still works. I keep the good one for myself, and when a friend wants to borrow one they get the other one. I am pretty happy with these augers, I, myself, don't see the need to buy a more expensive auger when the ones I have work fine. I also don't go up north where I may need a bigger model. I mainly fish the metro area & the Alexandria/Glenwood area

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
