Gotta love Jiffy

3 posts in this topic

Finally got the old jiffy out a couple days ago, and it finally hit me: That dang thing is about 25 years old. My dad used it for years and now I use it all the time. Get this, we haven't had to replace a thing other than the blade once. It started up after only 3 pulls. Talk about dependable. I don't know what the new jiffy's are like, but if they are anything like the old ones, I wouldn't hesitate to get one, that is if I ever need another one!

The old Jiffys were either great out of the box or trouble from the start (at least that was my experience with the 3hp model). I know a number of people who have Jiffs approaching the 20 year mark. I myself switched over to the Lazer Mag a few years back and have not been dissatisfied. One thing that I do wish is that Strikemaster would build their units a little more solid like those Jiffy "tanks" seem to be built. I remember bouncing my Jiffy across a number of breakers on Mille Lacs and doubt that my current unit would handle this abuse.

yep our jiffy is probably 20 years old drilled 3000 holes and been run over by a truck. when pulled out this year it had old gas and started on the 3 pull. Used the new ones and would not trade the old tank for one.
