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.
