StrikeMaster Magnum III, is it a good unit ?

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

    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!
