Strike-lite wont drill

5 posts in this topic

i just replaced the drill unit of my strikemaster strike-lite auger after breaking a small part of the plastic pulling it out of a hole..... strikemaster was great and gave be a whole new drill unit with new blades and all but now it doesnt seem to want to cut through the ice! its likes the blades are not catching the ice or something.

anyone have any idea of what could be wrong?

the only thing i could think of is that the blades were put on upsidedown..... I am going to call strikemaster tomorrow (if they are open) and might just exchanged the drill unit for a lazer mag and keep the 4 stroke power head..... i hear a lot of people are doing that.

oh, and it will drill holes if i put a lot of weight on it and rock it side to side a little....... which i NEVER had to do before replacing the drill unit.

Get in touch with them again... That may have been the problem with the replacement auger to begin with. They should replace that auger with another one, as it sounds like the pitch still isn't correct. Phred52

I broke my stike-lite bit also. Strikemaster swapped it out with a 224 bit. Big difference in cutting speed. I love it.

I will be exchanging my strike-light bit for a metal bit as I broke mine on LOW this weekend. I will opt for the Lager Mag or Lazer 224 blade. I really wish they would gear one of these for use with a 10" blade as I would like to have that option in the wheel house.

    • Great idea, Purple!!!  I've done the Chili Dogs and Cody Sticks from Curley's.  Both are excellent!
    • What exactly are you trying to say here? That we should follow the advice of a chiro instead of a MD? My MIL's doctors have been trying to avoid surgery of her colon tumor but if they end up doing it it's because they are just looking for a payday? Is that what you are trying to say? Or that she should just ignore it and keep doing what the wack job chiro says (he said she was cured when in fact her tumor had grown exponentially)? I have several ailments that surgery could be an option. All of my doctors have recommended the less invasive route for each one. Same with my wife and my children.  
    • I have one, my works great.
    • If Lip_Ripper Guy doesn't come on about your frame just PM him, he's our resident expert on hydraulic frames. 
    • There's millions of 8 x fish houses out there on 2 skids, I think you'll be fine. Are you using 2x6's for the floor on 16 inch centers and running the plywood the right way? I only say 2x6 because weight usually isn't a factor on a skid house and they make a rock solid floor, but it is probably overkill to many.  I still think you should brace them though.
    • Doesn't matter much who signed it at this point, since neither party has made an effort to repeal it.   Top priority on Obama's list is to push the TPP before he leaves. I presume this will be his retirement sweetener.... http://www.wnd.com/2016/08/its-official-obama-to-send-congress-tpp/
    • Small tarps are even cheaper. 
    • One more thing I forgot to add, are the insulated wheel well covers worth it? Wanted to get something at least to protect the wheels in the summer from mud/sun etc., but came across insulated covers for like $200 bucks. Worth it for the money or just get some cheap wheel covers at like fleet farm?
    • I don't know who is considered the winner of the debate but what I do know is that if we the people actually vote one of them into potentially the highest office in the world we will be the losers. Neither of these boneheads is presidential material and I can't stomach either of them representing me to the world or being in control of our military. They both spent more time fighting, arguing, and interrupting each other so bad it completely distracted the attention away from the topic of the discussion.  I couldn't help but wish the moderator of the debate had a switch to turn off the microphones whenever they got out of hand. Of course if he did, it would have been a pretty quiet debate. Talk about a pair of idiots! We the voting public seem to forget these two people are applying for a job and we are the ones that are doing the hiring. I opened the door and let them in to my office Monday evening and a few minutes after they opened their mouths I escorted both out by the nape of their necks.
