Just got a new auger

10 posts in this topic

I just bought the last Lazer Mag Express my store had. I was so excited until I opened the box. The handle is broken.

I see you have to split the case to put on a new handle. Has anyone had any problems w/ the case leaking after handle replacement? What kind of lube is inside the case?

In my job I work on gear cases, tramsmissions & power drives & etc. It seems like a pretty simple task to change the handle as long as I get the torque specs & maybe new seals.

If you're located anywhere near Big Lake where Strikemaster is, you could always stop in and they'll swap it out for you.

You won't have any problem with leak. There is heavy grease in the gear box not oil.

Just a thought. I would give strikemaster a call and ask about the warranty. I know they have great service, but with alot companies will void the warranty if you pull things apart on your own within the warranty period.
