Jiffy Stealth...bass akwerds!

Question

  • 0

My brand new 2HP-8" Jiffy Stealth turns counter-clockwise! I almost was ready to bring it back when I noticed that the blades were mounted to cut that way. I had always used Strikemaster augers in the past and I know they turn clockwise. I guess the engineers at Jiffy didn't want anyone putting Lazer lower units on their powerheads. (By the way, I love the auger!)

Jiffy/Feldmann Engineering always has ran their gearbox's in that manor. They feel it imposes less wear on the drive that way.

Tecumseh makes Jiffy engines to their exclusive specification, and they have been the engine supplier since Feldmann Engineering invented the power ice drill and began selling it in 1951.

Jiffy still designs and manufactures everything else themselves, including the gearbox, drills, blades and accessories!

That's the reason why they say, "We Put The World on Ice.™"!, it's because they did.

So as I see it, it's the rest of the ice auger world that is kinda backward.

Yep the always spin backward from the others. Like Eddy said they have been doing it like that since 1951. So it wasn't done like that to keep people from putting strikemaster bits on a jiffy because they have been around longer. The steaths are a great auger and I love mine just about the best thing that I bought this past year.

I just received a 2hp 8 inch Jiffy Stealth for Christmas and have a question for anyone that can help. My concern is when I give it gas the auger seems to engage very quickly and almost with a bang. My old model thirty seemed to engage smoothly and work up to full speed. The stealth runs and cuts great, but I'm wondering if the way mine is engaging is going to be hard on the gearbox. Do I need to be concerned or will this get better when it's broke in a bit more.

      I think property management is more about communication than real estate as it requires regular interaction with property owners, tenants and staff. To create a base of loyal customers and ensure future growth in a competitive market, I recommend ordering the development of a mobile application fromhttps://djangostars.com/industries/proptech-real-estate/. Because managing a large real estate company that has been on the market for over 20 years can be a headache if you don't have the right software to manage it.

      Buying and selling, renting residential areas include many long-term labor-intensive processes. It is easy to optimize, speed up these operations - it is enough to order the creation of a mobile application for real estate.

      This is the right decision, because such software will allow her to work less and more conveniently. Therefore, find its own developers. In your city, if it is large, you can find such a team, if not, then on the Internet

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.
