    Default Ice Auger Repair?

    My Jiffy auger started grinding and doesn't really turn anymore. Sounds like the gears aren't catching. Any ideas where I can get this repaired? The Jiffy site suggested a place out here in Eagle River, but their reviews are poor and they never answer their phone or return voicemails. I appreciate the help.

    i would try and fix it myself before I took it to the clown in Eagle River. I brought him my ice auger and chainsaw for carb rebuilds in 2003. A month later I got my auger back and it wouldn't run. The spacer between the carb and the block was installed backwards. I never did get my chainsaw back.

    I was seriously debating this but I'm on a budget and think repairing might be cheaper... hopefully.

    Sounds like a gear box issue.
    Look for a replacement on ebay and do it yourself.

    Had the lower case on my Strikemaster break from a rough trail ride and found a replacement casing.
    Also replaced the bearings and greased her up while at it.
