Pull cord on Lazer Mag

6 posts in this topic

Hey fellow FMer's....

So, I was up north last weekend and on Sunday. I went to drill my first hole....pulled the cord, she started right up. Only thing is the cord will not recoil back into the unit. It's hanging out, fully extended from the unit. I just picked up the unit this year from DRock and would rather not drive an hour that way to have it fixed if I can do it on my own. What do you guys recommend? I also have had issues with my auger blades not grabbing the ice when drilling. She drills for 8-10" just fine and then locks up and won't turn to punch through the final few inches of ice. Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Stay warm. wink

Not sure if you have tried this or not.

Try to warm the unit up in the house for a few hours.

I had the same problem and it broke free a few hours of being warmed up.

Sifty, I did try it out last night after the car ride home. No luck. I thought that this might be it as it was BITTERLY COLD. Thanks for the suggestion.

this happens with my older auger - quite a bit actually.

With my tecumseh, it's 4 bolts to take the top of the housing off. The recoil is a coil in the center of that top cap - 1 bolt holding it in. I tweak it tighter or looser and she winds right back up. It's an easy fix if all the bits are there and not broken.

I know the drive sucks, but I'd call them and see if they'd fix it on the spot. The drive might very well be worth it if the recoil spring has come unwound, and they'd repair it under warranty. I rewound mine once, and am NOTlooking forward to doing it again.

Yeah, I would rather have the folks at DRock handle it if they can on the spot. I'll pull the housing off tonight and see what I can find. I'll update here this evening. Thanks again guys. Happy Holidays.
