Strikemaster broke on/off switch

4 posts in this topic

Anyone had their starter handle snap back and break their on/off switch off?

At least its stuck in the on position so it'll start, but I have to choke it to kill it. Anyone know if I'll wreck something by doing that?

If you've had this happen, how much did it cost to repair?

Thanks for any insight!

Not sure how much it would cost. You could call D-rock in New Brighton. They deal them so they would know and could give you an estimate. They could let you know if it's hard on it to choke it. I don't think it would hurt it short term. But I would get it fixed sooner than later.

Talked with strikemaster ordered a new switch. They actually recommended pushing the compression button to stop the auger, not the off switch. problem solved...

Yep, I just leave my switch on always and stop the auger with the yellow compression button based on there recommendation.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
