Strikemaster LMU-9" and great service

Recommended Posts

This was probably known to some of you, but I thought it was very nice...

I bought a brand new Lazer Mag Ultra that was a couple of years old (just hadn't been used at all)... well, it turned out that it was from the first year, and it really doesn't cut very well at all... I had heard from the forums here (thanks guys!) that there was a problem with the design, and that Strikemaster would take care of it...

I skeptically called them to ask about it...thinking that there would be no way they would do anything, since I wasn't the original purchaser, and it was a few years old...

Was I wrong!!! The very friendly woman on the phone knew exactly what I was talking about, said the problem was the blade support rods, and that if I brought it over( I live in Becker), they would give me a new drill unit ... I said "but I don't have a reciept or anything," and she said it didnt matter, that the company wanted to replace all those bad ones no matter what!!

How's that for a company willing to stand behind it's products! ( and I have no affiliation whatsoever with SM ) I will for the remainder of my ice fishing career buy and recommend Strikemaster Augers!!

Where did you have to bring it to?
I have the same drill, and it runs like a top, just doesn't cut worth a darn. Strikemaster has sent me out free replacement blades, but even with the new blades it still doesn't cut very well, it takes a lot of weight some times compared to others (non-LUM) that I have tried.
Anyway, would just like to know where to return it.
Thanks

birddog, Call Strickmaster back and tell them you still ain't satisfied with the new blades. I bought my ultra a couple years ago and had trouble drilling with it. So I called them,they sent me a new drill and some blades. This year I had trouble drilling with it (one time it would drill great,next time you had to lay on it to drill), so I called them again and they wanted me to try a couple new sets of blades. I tried them,no difference, called them back and told them what it was doing. The woman told me to send the drill back and they would replace it with another 9" or I could try the Lazer Mag 8". I chose the 8" and it cuts great. I know of atleast 6 people that have switched to the 8" and say it's the best decision they made. You can take it right to Strikemaster in Big Lake or send it to them. They will take care of you. Great customer service!!!!!

I bought a LMU last year and had not have any real problems with it. Occasionally it will ice up, but other than that it cuts great. I must have the newer design they changed to. It has the rings all away around the bottom.

work is for people who don't fish

Do they have an 800 number so I can call from work at lunch today? I checked the web and couldn't find one.
Thanks

Augers are like saws and if you force them, they bind and don't cut right, let it do the work and clean out the hole now and then by lifting the auger up and down.
I have 200 holes + on a set of LazerMag Ultra factory blades and they still work ok but need to go to the sharpen shop. smile.gif
try taking your blades to a sharpener and see if that helps. Check where they sharpen chainsaws.

    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
    • thanks guys, i've only owned 2 blowers. both 2 stage and the first one i think came over on the mayflower!!!!!!!!!!! guess i never paid much attention to other blowers!!!!!
    • Looks great! Big improvement in a small area
