I purchased this 1yr ago, theres nothing wrong with it it's just that I don't need two of them. It's drilled about 150 holes without any problems.

Sorry no pics available frown.gif It looks brand new just a few chips of paint off the auger. The reason I have two is last weekend a few of us were going up to Cross Lake and a friend of mine was buying a new four-stroke so I left mine at home.(NEVER AGAIN) I arrived in Cross Lake and called to see where he was at, low and behold he still had'nt left yet, this being 3:00 p.m. I was'nt waiting I ran to Brainerd and purchased a new one.

It is the model 30 I believe, it is not the stealth model, it's the white one. I purchased a Lazer Mag Express from Reeds they had them on sale.

I had to do some fine tuning to it right after I bought it, just like all 3hp's. But I had it out today and drilled about fifty holes without a problem, other than sore muscles grin.gif

Not to bust in on this post but I've had a Jiffy 30 3hp for 25 years and it hit the shop for the first time 2 weeks ago. It still ran great but leaked gas from the diaphram when you primed it. The newer ones might be different but mine is a work horse. I'ld get another one but mine doesn't want to break.

Jiffy as well as Strikemaster that use this 3 hp often need some fine tunning on the carb after coming out of the box. After you did though you don't again or at least for a while. I have two auger similar to this one and I have not issues with them at all they are a very dependable auger and will always cut a hole.

I too have had the 3 HP 10 inch Jiffy for 10 years now and the only thing I've done to it is replace the spark plug. Starts easy and has always performed well for me.

    • Lots of reality here.   Seriously, if we truly want to wipe out CWD, all deer/elk farms need to be wiped out, all natural deer scents need to be banned and taken out of production and every single deer/elk anywhere near a positive CWD infected area needs to be wiped out. Every last one of them! And then, all deer that are found in these areas for at least 10 years need to be destroyed.    Is this a sacrifice the state is willing to make? Not a chance! So we fall to the only other option, we adapt and live with it. 
    • It's always fun to rig up your own custom stuff then paying a bunch of money for things that may not work as well.  Looks like it should do the trick for you!  🙂
    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.   
    • Gettin er done.    I have to take the "T" that the transducer pipe goes through to work so I can open the ID so the pipe can slide freely. 
    • I have a couple Garmin units for my boat. I'm going to also use one for ice fishing. Got it powered up and started playing with the colors schemes I'd like to use. The only one I like so far is with a blue background. But what I found that I like better is the black background the humminbird uses. Maybe Garmin could do an update to add a black mode. Lol. 
    • How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?
    • The ant moat idea seems interesting.  Go to a second had store or a Goodwill type of place and see if you can find a Bundt pan.  Use that and see how things work out.  
    • Could you be a little more specific on this cocktail timing deal? Size matters! 😏  
    • I have been doing whole prime rib on a weber grill since I was 20 years old and they cost 2.99 lb at the long ago defunct Country Club Market in St. Paul. I put the coals on each side for indirect heat and add salt and pepper and garlic. For the garlic I put the fat side up and take a knife and put holes into the fat down to meat. In each hole I put a garlic clove. I don't add any pellets or wood chips for smoke. I just want to taste that beef cooked in owns fat with a few spices but go ahead and add some smoke to it if that is what you want.
