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.

    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?
    • Had some great luck getting into some fat Late fall trout. Hope you enjoy.   Late Fall Trout
    • vtx,   Thanks for the suggestion.
    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
