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!

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
