Great service on Strikemaster auger!!!

Recommended Posts

So... I went outta town mid december for 3 weeks. Before I left changed spark plug in snowblower and auger. Started the blower and then tried the auger and.. whoops the rope broke. So had to leave it. When I returned thought about doing it myself but thought itd be too much trouble so looked up Strikemaster HSOforum and called couple small engine shops to get prices. They were looking for $50-60 for the recoil. Well I thought that was a bit much and called Strikemaster in Big Lake. Was given a # to a shop in New Brighton called D-Rock. By now I figured if im bringing it in might look at getting carb done as well. So to make this story no longer.. I got it recoiled, carb rebuilt, (some new parts, inc gas hose,etc.) a new blade, (with my old one back), and a blade guard. Total = $75 including parts labor and tax. Runs like its brand new!! Brought a tear to my eye. Thought any Strikemaster owners would be interested. Couldnt be happier. Ice here I come!!!

Wonder if they'll take their show on the road or branch out to the North a little ways. It would be comforting to know to have this great service closer by.

Would you mind posting that phone number for strikemaster in Big Lake...maybe they know someone up North here?

stpauliguy - I have a Jiffy that I think may be in store for a good cleaning. What was the shop's turn around time?

No emergencies just yet. But just in case when THAT day comes. I've had mine for 6/7 years now and still runs great. It starts, drills and starts again each year and that's all I ask.

I got the numbers wrote down for quick reference. Thank you.

I just want to second the great service at D-Rock. A few years ago I bought a used Strikemaster and it blew a piston after a bit of use. I brought it there and it was around $100 for the parts and they only charged $20 for labor to install a new shortblock, including a tuneup and a couple other parts.

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
