Pull cord on Lazer Mag

Recommended Posts

Hey fellow FMer's....

So, I was up north last weekend and on Sunday. I went to drill my first hole....pulled the cord, she started right up. Only thing is the cord will not recoil back into the unit. It's hanging out, fully extended from the unit. I just picked up the unit this year from DRock and would rather not drive an hour that way to have it fixed if I can do it on my own. What do you guys recommend? I also have had issues with my auger blades not grabbing the ice when drilling. She drills for 8-10" just fine and then locks up and won't turn to punch through the final few inches of ice. Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Stay warm. wink

Not sure if you have tried this or not.

Try to warm the unit up in the house for a few hours.

I had the same problem and it broke free a few hours of being warmed up.

Sifty, I did try it out last night after the car ride home. No luck. I thought that this might be it as it was BITTERLY COLD. Thanks for the suggestion.

this happens with my older auger - quite a bit actually.

With my tecumseh, it's 4 bolts to take the top of the housing off. The recoil is a coil in the center of that top cap - 1 bolt holding it in. I tweak it tighter or looser and she winds right back up. It's an easy fix if all the bits are there and not broken.

I know the drive sucks, but I'd call them and see if they'd fix it on the spot. The drive might very well be worth it if the recoil spring has come unwound, and they'd repair it under warranty. I rewound mine once, and am NOTlooking forward to doing it again.

Yeah, I would rather have the folks at DRock handle it if they can on the spot. I'll pull the housing off tonight and see what I can find. I'll update here this evening. Thanks again guys. Happy Holidays.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
