Honda lite Problem?

Recommended Posts

So I took my new Honda out today pumped it 3x started after 2 pulls moved to run. let it warm up a good 3 minutes. ran great then after a hour. i did the same thing except no priming started right up let it warm up 3 minutes started drilling bogged down and died in middle of drilling so i drilled a few more did it again started right up. after 3-4 holes then it ran fine maybe a little cold? this is the 4th strikemaster Ive had in 2 days. This is in another post anyway hope I didnt get a lemon again I was really impressed with it other wise very quit and started way better than my solo thanks

I just got one this year also. It did the same thing after a dozen holes but has not done it since and is a sweet auger, I love it. I use it hard and often. The only other prob I had was when I set it down in a wheel house right by the furnace to warm it up, that was not a good idea as it flooded it self from over heating. I think the gas expanded or something.

Wasn't there something about the new gas caps that weren't allowing air to get into the tank so they were getting vapor locked. Try opening the gas cap after it does that and see if that helps. I think with the new regulations the caps can't legally vent anymore, not sure how there suppose to work now.

That's great. I do love mine. I was a diehard Jiffy guy but the Honda lite is really sweet so far. I run 4 houses and have drilled many holes this winter and I think re-opened more then new and it has served me well. The only disappointment is the 10" hole, its much smaller then the 10" jiffy. Haven't measured but its noticeably smaller but I can live with it.

    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.   
    • I hear ya. Although unlike CWD, I don't think there will be as much debate among different hunting groups about how bad the effects are and what, if anything, should be done about it.  Doesn't help the deer any, but at least it won't turn into debates/accusations/conspiracy theories that rival any political campaign. 
    • Great anything else?  Start the slaughter!  😠
    • does he need to?  Sounds like he put a whoopin on the boys in the one practice he showed up and played in...
    • This is not good news:   http://www.startribune.com/virus-new-to-state-s-deer-inflict-quick-and-suspicious-deaths-in-herd-near-twin-cities/497832721/   "Quick and suspicious" deaths of several deer this month in a captive herd south of the Twin Cities are being attributed to a virus never before seen in deer in Minnesota, state officials said Wednesday.   The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has confirmed the first cases of epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) in seven animals in a small herd of captive white-tailed deer in Goodhue County. There is no specific treatment or vaccine available in this country. Six of the deer died this month, the agency said, while a remaining buck "appears healthy at this time and is showing no clinical signs associated with this disease."   While this is the first detection of EHD among deer in the state, it is widespread across North America. There are no known health risks to humans, the Board of Animal Health said.   EHD has previously been detected in two Minnesota cattle in southern Minnesota — in Brown County in 2012, and Murray County in 2013.   "This virus is transmitted between deer by biting midges, or gnats, which are most active in the fall before they are killed by the first frost of the season," said Dr. Mackenzie Reberg, senior veterinarian with the Board of Animal Health. "These bugs can't travel far on their own, and we're concerned by this detection because the herd owner hasn't moved deer onto the property for several years."   The "quick and suspicious deaths of the animals," as the agency's announcement characterized them, alarmed the owner, who worked with a veterinarian to submit tissues from the carcasses to the Iowa State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for investigation and confirmation.   Many deer species may be infected with EHD, but white-tailed deer are highly susceptible and experience high rates of mortality. Most die within 36 hours of clinical signs, which can include fever, anorexia, lethargy, stiffness, respiratory distress, oral ulcers, and severe swelling of the head and neck.   The Board has notified the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources of the newly confirmed cases.
    • Not so Young dumb and full of............   Anymore?  😜
    • I think Negan should be in a cell that has a couple walkers in a cell on each side. lol
    • So, is Butler playing in the season opener? Has he even practiced, other than that one infamous time?
    • 2 episodes in, and I don’t have much of anything to complain about. Not great episodes by any means, but not bad either.
    • Good luck to you all. Sounds like a great trip.
