Auger Extension torque problem?


redhooks

Question

I have a Lazer XL3000 10" about 5 years old, ran fine for years until this winter when I had some minor probs w/ the air vane rubbing but still cut fine. Last week I was up at Red and had to put on my 18" extension to get through 36" of ice, it now stands at eye level and I had difficult time getting up enough RPM's to cut with it. I eventually got through and have been a little perplexed as to if I would need to change the carb settings to deal w/ the extra torque of all that extra length? Well last night the URL triange got the best of it because while drilling the 1st hole, it had more problems getting up enough steam to dig and then the the bottom of the gearcase cracked and probably the guts inside frown.gif thankfully we borrowed another and caught a few but now I have to deal with my sick auger. Should I contact strikemaster about the repairs or can I have it done better/cheaper/faster locally or possibly do it myself? And is the extra long extension the reason for blowin the guts out or was it caused by worn out gears? appreciate any advice-and I hope your luck has been better than mine lately.

I remember this auger. smile.gif The vane might not be right. If so your not getting the power cuz the govenor isnt working. Or your binding in the gearcase thus putting aload on the engine.
When using an extension you shouldnt need carb adjustments.

I guess you wont know what to do till you get it opened up.

Hopefully you can find a junker for parts. If not contact a service center for parts and or service.

It definately does not have anything to do with torque. The only way you would add extra torque would be by lengthening the width of the blades. Hence the reason for a 3 horse ten inch auger. The only thing I can think of is maybe its the way you were holding it that made er go ca-put. You just have gear issues.

I pulled the cracked gear box apart and everything inside seems fine so I just need a new lower cover-$35 new, but I might call around and see if anyone has a use one. Then I suppose I'll see about a new vane- I adjusted it and it didn't make as much racket but may still been the gremlin that started it all. I guess after 5 yrs of abuse something has to give. Good luck, big fish and no whammies to all!

Like everyone is saying you aren't adding more torque by lengthing out the auger. With my Jiffy when I have extenstions on the takes longer because auger is just more diffcult to handle because you can't get your weight on the auger until it is about a 1 or 2 into the ice. Sounds to me like you should look at the vanes it makes a difference and you should be good to go. if not look at a jiffy I have a 20 year old one that has ended up using extenstions every year since it was bought just about.

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
