Auger fell over and broke.

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, i was up north fishing and my auger was leaning up against something and i bumped it and it fell over and broke. Does anyone know where i can find a service center for strikemaster of hwy 10? The bottom of the gear box cover broke where the drill unit slides into it. Not sure if that helps but any help would be great. It starts and runs fine just wont turn the auger head.

I had an issue with mine, and the place in Big Lake was very helpful.

Not to highjack your thread, but I am curious.

Is this an older model with the aluminum gear case, or one of the newer ones with the plastic gear case? I know that engineering plastics have come a long ways, but I still wonder if they are as strong as metal in the cold.

I found a place in circle pines that will work on it. It is about 14 years old and has always been a good auger till i tipped it over and the gear box broke. Lesson learned that from now on i will lay me auger down to prevent further problems. It has the metal gear box on it.

Thanks to ace hardware in circle pines the gear box was broke and they fixed it. It only costed me $35. A lot cheaper then buying a new one.

I've had guys use my auger and when they're done, they set it down on the ground, balancing on one handle, I don't understand why?? Its just waiting to get tipped over, so I have to go set it down on both handles where its definately not going anywhere.

The short fall it will encounter when placed on one of the handles shouldn't be great enough to break anything. This is actually one of the 2 ways strikemaster purposes to store it. either on one handle with gas cap up or lay it flat.

The other option is to lay it on the gas tank or bury the hot exhaust in the snow. I lay mine down balanced on one handle. It hasn't fallen over yet.

The worst is to stick them up in the half hole. My brother in law always does this and i told him not to with my auger. He doesn't listen though and one day when I wasn't paying attention my auger got frozen in. It was late ice and warm and there was a little melt action during the day, when the sun went down and it froze, it was stuck. Super stuck. Like I thought I was going to have to take the powerhead and leave the bit. Fortunately we broke it free after about 30 minutes.

He doesn't do that stick it up in the half hole business anymore.

Yea mine fell from the stand up postion, but yea that little fall the the handle you would hope wouldn't hurt nothing. I was told to lean with the carb side up is the best.

I lay mine exhaust down. Never had a problem. I did notice if I stuck it in the ice I would wind up with a block on the end and it didn't cut worth a darn.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
