Strikemaster Lazer Mag Fuel/Oil Mix

5 posts in this topic

I figured I would ask the question here before I call Strikemaster customer service. Here is my situation: I have a two year old Strikemaster Lazer Mag that has a 2hp tecumseh power head. The sticker on the head indicates that a 24:1 fuel/oix should be used. However, I noticed a large amount of oil secreting from the muffler at various points, so I thought the mix was too rich. I checked the Strikemaster HSOforum and it says that the fuel/oil mix for 2hp tecumseh should be 40:1. What am I missing? Did they change the power head recently to a different model that requires a 40:1 mix or is the sticker on my auger wrong and I am using way too rich of a mix?

I have a 10 yr old lazermag, this is my 1st year 100:1 Amsoil Saber. Runs better than ever, limited smoke, no oil leakage from the muffler.No oil leaking in the portable when transporting either. Give it a try , it is great stuff.

Ditto what the other guys have said but it's VERY IMPORTANT to know that Amsoil is a synthetic designed to run at that mixure, Don't try it with anything else. If you switch to Amsoil make sure you get the proper oil as the make a few differnt types for differnt applications. Side note I've been using for it years in my strikemaster and it's awesome. It started on the first pull after sitting for a year and it did smoke for a bit till she warmed up and cleared out. Good luck.

    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
