I have the Model 30 Jiffy. The blades will cut even if you hit sand in the ice and so one. Nothing will stop a Jiffy.

It could fall off your truck going down the free way and nothing would go wrong with it.

One thing if you do get a Jiffy make sure if is the 3 h.p. you will be glad you did because the 3 hp chew through the ice like butter

As for the stealth blade I can imagine they are extremely fast. I have just the chipper and it is fast

I've used my model 30 Jiffy for footings for a retaining wall and she preformed well. You will always hear people complain about Jiffys being cold blooded and that can be true but if you or someone tunes it right you'll fall in love. Never had any issues with ice.

I just got the first full season on my STX 3HP and loved it. No issues with cold blood here, first or second pull everytime, unless I forget to turn it on ;)Never iced up once.

I get noticeable ice up on my model 30, but that doesn't have the Deicer armor. A buddy of mine has the 2hp STX Pro with de-icer armor and his works better than mine. Also, we raced them multiple times and they ran through the ice in about the same time with the 2 hp being quieter and lighter.

Smeese nice to see I'm not the only one who forgets to turn the auger on. It takes me 2 AAARRRGHs before I realize its not on.

I never had any trouble with my de-icer armor on my Stx Pro but I added a coat of teflon and never have any problems with the flighting icing up.

2 hp 8" stx, no problems with icing, blades, starting, or power. Pretty much no complaints period...

    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy  
    • I agree with purpleflloyd..........seasoning. I MIGHT use a grill brush twice a year that's it. 
    • Well first off you would probably need a permit but I would think 1000.00 should take care of it
