Re: Gas auger!!!!!
Rivrunnr, try fresh gas first (easiest) then maybe a new spark plug? My Strikemaster ALWAYS takes a while to warm up before the first hole but then it's good to go for the rest of the day.
Dan, welcome to the site! You will be a great asset to us with tech questions. Do you recomend Sta-bil since auger gas can sit for 3-4 months before being used?
