StrikeMaster issue

Recommended Posts

I have a StrikeMaster Ice Auger (I believe 9")
It is of the 4 blade design; 2 larger bladed and 2 smaller blades that predrill the hole.
I have installed new blades but the auger still does not cut like good/consistently.
Although it is not obvious I am thinking the flighting maybe bent.
Is there a service center that I can take the auger to have it checked out and straightened if needed?

H20 in big lake is a strikemaster service center.  Sounds like your pitch might be off on the blades.  Happened often to me and I ended up getting a new auger shaft and cured the issue.  What I didn't realize that they have "stabilizer bars" on the bottom of the auger and mine had completely disappeared.

Drock in New Brighton also services them. I just got back from there actually picking up a new blade guard and gas line connector for the carb.

any good machine shop should be able to straighten it for you but the cost of that would most likely exceed the price of a new drill. If you have access to some V-blocks, hydraulic press, and a dial test indicator its not hard to straighten things just very time consuming.

Those Lazer 224 bottoms kick ice

Is it the 8"?

Or 10"

 

4"  blades are now obsolete.

 

I have a 10" 224 bottom

New in box.

Not for sale

All the True Values are Strikemaster service centers.  You can also email Strikemaster off their page and they'll get back to you pretty quickly (usually an hour or so).

Mine wouldn't disengage even at idle at the end of last season (first season for drill) and they serviced it, replaced the idle spring and had it back in 2-3 weeks for free.

Should be an 8" or 10".   More then likely the problem isn't the flighting.   Rather the mount is bent and it happens that is where your problem is.  D Rock should have been able to help you there. If they recommended to replace the drill its possible they can't adjust those any longer or because the 224 has been discontinued.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
