Strikemaster Oil in Hutchinson?

12 posts in this topic

Ive been looking for SM oil in Hutchinson and can't find any. The outpost has the 24:1 ratio only. Does anyone know where I can get some for a 40:1 ratio in Hutchinson?

I have a brand new auger and would like to follow the recommendations of SM especially when I plan on breaking it in this weekend. Never had a drop of gas yet.

Don't know about strikemaster oil but you can find amsoil sabre at most auto parts stores and you can mix 100:1 or to be safe 80:1. This stuff is great. I usually see the 40:1 sm oil at bait stores.

Being that your auger is new, use the recommended 24:1 mixture for at least the first tank to allow for the break in period. You don't necessarily have to use Strikemaster's oil for the break in. You could use any 2 cycle oil and most have a mixture chart on the back that would allow for you to convert the oil to gas mixture for your application. After the break in, I would definitely switch to Amsoil. You won't be disappointed!

Owners manual says a 40:1 mix. It's a strike master lazar mag if it makes a difference. For the break in period do you want to use a 24:1?

Honestly I don't know jack about motors. Literally. I know. A guy that doesn't know a thing about motors now that's funny.

You can either get the small bottles for mixing with one gallon of gas, or get a quart, and measure out the amount you need to mix with a gallon of gas. I went to a local store that has cooking supplies, and purchased a cheep measuring cup that reads ounces. Pour out of the quart jug what I need, and save the rest. Much less expensive than using the small containers.

Hope this will help. 5.5 ounces oil and one gallon gas for your mix.

The new SM augers are a 40:1 ratio, the models made before this year were a 24:1. It will smoke alot and foul the plugs at 24:1

Strikemaster does have a really helpful customer service if you look them up online. They are located in Big Lake, MN. Always been super helpful when we call or e-mail them.

Thank you swanbait. I don't know much on engines, but I swore I was at least reading the manual right. Thanks Big Buck Buster I'll probably print that out it helps a lot. I'm retarded when it comes to engines. But I can build just about anything else.

Should have taken shop instead of all the art classes in high school. But I can make a great ceramic ash tray or draw an engine.

Yeah, I asked a guy at strikemaster some ?'s and he told me 40:1 is good for the break-in, just make sure you use an original formula 2 cycle. He said that blends and fully synthetics are ok to use after the first year of use and they will cut down a lot of the oily residue that can build up on the exhaust and handle.

Jiffy or Stikemaster will work well...same-same..no big difference in the new smokeless formulas with Sta-Bil added.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
