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.

    • Thank you, looks like I have a ton of them and not the goldies, I'm kind of disappointed. There's quite a bit of difference, I must have been fooled by the yellow on the siskins. It's been a while since I had either. I'm still looking for my bird books to identify the others. It seems the older I get the better I get at hiding stuff from myself! Thanks again, Mark
    • not my pic but here is a winter goldie. pretty drab
    • pine siskins. look a lot like winter goldies just smaller
    • Eyeguy, do you have a picture of a winter goldfinch and a pine siskin? I'm not 100% sure I know the difference. Any idea what the birds are I posted about with the colored backs? Those are on the safflower seed heavy, not on the niger at all. I wish I had a lens to take a picture to show you.
    • lots of pine siskins have been moving thru here. 
    • 1.21.19 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, NW Angle of LOW,

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      We are making ice up here at Sunset Lodge and with fresh snow coming the trails should be in great shape.

      In Minnesota, we are seeing really nice saugers mixed in with walleye in 26-29ft. Rippin raps and rattle baits are calling fish to the house during slower portions of the day. Pink and white remains the favored color combo. Work these baits aggresively as they will attract fish, mellow out as fish appear on electronics, then finesse them with a more subtle presentation to seal the deal.

      Crappies continue to come in from Canada. Electronics are key with a small presentation such as a tungsten jig with a small piece of minnow. Walleye action is hot off points and reefs on flats between 24-28 ft. 

      Until next week!
      Sunset Lodge
    • I've seen a huge uptick in birds around my place as well.  I have let the feeder go empty now because the deer get to them before the birds do but still lots of birds in the yard. 
    • All of a sudden, the last week or so, I can hardly keep up filling the feeders! Redpolls by the hundreds and goldfinches so thick I fill the niger seed feeder every day. I thought Purple finches went away in the winter but I have something that looks just like them too. I also have some little finch type birds that some have either pinkish red backs under the wings or some are orangeish. Any idea what they might be? Those along with all the cardinals, nuthatches, and assorted others have me wondering what I'm going to spend my money on, their groceries or mine. I've got 4 times more birds than I had all last summer but I'm not complaining, they are a hoot to watch fight over the perches. 
    • Looking for someone (in metro area preferrably) to recarpet my boat over the winter.  2005 Alumacraft Navigator CS 185.  Any suggestions.
