The chipper blades are flat and have teeth, the lazer blades are curved and go through the ice like a hot knife in butter. Keep the lazer, you will be happy you did.

They are designed for that particular blade configuration, you will need to stay with the shavers, or get a 2000 lower auger flighting assembly to replace the one you have now.

You may find somebody willing to swap if you ask around?

I have the Strikemaster 2000 with the chipper blade and I have less problems cutting than my friend with the lazer blade. He bent his flighting so I lent him my spare chipper blade. I also have a MagIII that was at least 15 years old and never had a problem with the flighting or the blades.

Ive got a pair of 8'' Lazer Blades, I need the 9'' Lazer Ultra Blades (3 to a set). If anybody has those I'd swap, and probably throw you some cash. I bought the wrong ones frown

Mnhunter, if you have to push down on the lazer to make it cut the pitch of the blades is off. SM can repitch the blades and it will cut effortlessly. Did you buy it used or new? Also, the only complaint I know of with the Lazer is reopening holes in the perm, not always a problem but once in awhile. That might be the only trouble, with your perm a Zipple. But for hole hopping, like said earlier, hot knife through butter.

I just set mine on the ice and hit the throttle. There's no need to push down as it sucks right down through the ice. If you have to push on it something definitely isn't right.

    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....      
    • I am saying if you go mudding or off-roading you will plug any of the drain holes they could put in there anyway. Not much different from the weep holes they put in the rear fenderwells and rockers of trucks.  I suppose it may have benefit to those who stay on pavement.
    • They put holes in the sides of the frame, so salt and mud could get in, but no holes in the bottom so they could drain, so not sure if that was planned, or just p*ss poor engineering.  They probably didn't really care as long as they outlasted the warranty period.        
    • Drain holes just end up getting plugged with mud and debris anyway.
