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

Question

HossFisher

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 that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!
    • Pat McGraw
      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff
