Happy New Year all!! Wolfman, sorry to hear about your auger woes. I cant be of much help but I got curious. Eskimo has about zero presence on the web. Pretty strange, maybe says something about the company. I looked up Strikemaster and boom, there they are with parts and the whole nine yards. (we should be in the equipment forum with this) but one cool thing I was able to do with my Strikemaster was convert it from a chipper to a lazer by simply buying a new drill assembly. (about $120) It was a lot cheaper a few years back when I did it. What a difference.

ole matty,

Just throwing this out there for your question. I love my 8 inch Eskimo. Its been a great auger for me. I usually use my 10 inch Lazer lately, but I will never get rid of the Eskimo as long it keeps running. cool.gif

I can't say where to get parts since I've never needed any for it besides a new set of blades. Its probably 10-12 years old now.

I would go to my local small engine shop and see if they got a part for you. Most times it is just a standard techumseh part. A hardware stores may carry those parts also.

Wolfman I think any small-engine repair shop should be able to help.

I just orderd the entire top of the motor from a local small engine place, runs about 60 bucks, if you want you can just order the recoil parts and rewind the spring(BIG PAIN IN THE.....) just have the model number TC300 and what ever is after that, any place that sells lawnmoweres would be a great place to start,

And yes Eskimo is a great product, my dads old one is still running strong, (must be close to 20 years old) and mine besides the recoil is still going great 5 years old)The company is Ardisam and they are in Cumberland, WI. They have great customer service, I wanted to exchange the 8 inch for a 10 inch and they guy meet me in Luck to exchange.

BTW if you search for Eskimo Ice auger you can find alot of refferences on the web, but you need to look up the motor to find parts for that. here is a web site that matches alot of the newer tc300's but always check with the shop with the model number and type before ordering your part

I have a 25 year old (or so) Eskimo. 3-4 years ago I had the hood break where it held the gas tank on. One of the retailers recommended a landscape company in New Brighton, Rock something or something Rock. The part was obsolete so he picked one he thought would work and ordered it, and said if it didn't work bring it back. Had to redrill one hole, and drill the rivets out for the recoil on the old one and screwed it on. Back in business. He knows his way around small engines and augers.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
