Auger running question

3 posts in this topic

I have a Strikmaster Lazer Mag 2 HP 8" that is about 7 years old that needs work. It runs and has good compression when cold but when it gets warm it runs out of power and really won't run well at all. I'm guessing it needs a carb job or could it just adjusting the set screws? any thoughts?

You could start with the screws, but I would bet the carb needs a kit. It is only about $10 and quite simple to do.

New spark plug, check fuel line connections, adjust carb, clean carb and new carb kit.

Good Luck!

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
