strike lite ice auger

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for reviews on the Strikemaster strike lite ice auger with the Subaru motor. Does anyone use it with a chipper blade. Is it difficult to start in cold weather?

I love my strike lite. I would not trade it for anything. I've never had a problem starting mine.

I don't use a chipper though.

never had a problem with mine. Easy to start, even in cold.

I've run a 10" chipper redrilling permie holes, no problems.

My only problem was the original plastic auger flighting. That broke and Strikemaster gave me a lazer mag all metal auger. Been great.

I use mine with a 10" chipper to drill holes in the wheel house. I love the original drill with the plastic flighting. Been using it six years without a problem. I do a lot of walk-in fishing and the minimal weight is helpful.

I love mine, I use the poly bit 8" and a 224 8" bit too. Drills fine with both. High octane fuel helps this little engine turn better.

I also agree with Dan about the higher octane fuel. In fact I run Non oxygenated high octane fuel in all my small engines.

The cold doesn't seem to effect it, 2 pulls.

I had the same issue and the old Strikemaster took care of me by giving me a metal auger as a replacement. Also use high octane gas in it and it starts on the first or second pull.

Anyone have a poly bit they can't stand mine was stolen a couple weeks back, I have an 8" lazer also. So I'm not in dire need of it but I would like one eventually. Thanks!

    • 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!!!
