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?

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.

    • 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.
    • Thanks Scoot!  Yes, we have our bear spray, brought a couple extra cans to keep in our packs besides what we have our on hips.   Hopefully it remains there the whole trip. Going to try and keep this updated during our trip. My son is taking video production class in school, hopefully he can put something together when we get back. Signing off for now, going to have lunch with the wife before I head home, grab the last cooler and pick my son up from school!  
    • It was an okay trip, made the best of it. Changed destination and distance I was willing to travel in those weather conditions. Can't afford to screw up when I'm solo.  More of a winter trip feel than a fall trip. After fishing in 17 degree windchill, I found just hanging out fireside a much better option.   I think I need to do an actual summer BW trip next year, despite the bugs and crowds. Then I can take the fishing part more seriously.   Seen some groups pass by camp, so there were others as crazy as I.
