Pulled the cord out of my buddies auger..... Now What?

11 posts in this topic

Today me and a buddy took out his new Strikemaster mag2000 and it wasnt running too well. When i was trying to get it going i pulled the rope right out of the auger. My question is what can we do now? Is there an easy way for us to fix this problem or do we need to take it to a special repair shop?

I have done that a couple of different augers. You will need to take the recoil off and retie it. if you dont think you can do it, most small engine shops can fix it in a few minutes.

If you take the recoil off, then wind the spring and tie the rope back in with a knot on the end a wind it up. Then put it back on the auger. Its not to hard of a job.

how new is it? a few days, week or two? if so try and take it back to where he bought it, maybe they'll let him do an exchange. maybe they will see it as defective. if that don't work then try a repair shop.

Thanks for the quick replies. Hopefully we'll be able to retie it ourselves. It was the first time using it and hes had it for maybe a week. The only problem is he got it from his cousin who won it in a fishing contest so i dont know if he can somehow return it or not. Thanks again for the info and ill let ya know how this plays out.

What ever brand it is you should be able to go to a place that sells & services them or any small engine shop. You should be able to fix it yourself tho. It’s pretty simple to do.

Ya i guess the recoil broke too so i think that he is going to go buy a new recoil then hopefully we will just have to retie it.

If the recoil broke you need to get a new one and get it put in by someone if you dont know how. If your by big lake take it directly to strikemaster. Its a common problem.

Not picking on you Bassboy, but one thing I've noticed a lot is that people really reef on these pull ropes. Pull as hard and as far out as they can. Like they are starting a snowmobile or something.

I never pull the rope close to being all the way out. Short quick strokes and you should never have to worry about this happening.

      Well I am going out fishing today if ya want to tag along.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
