Just so you know, I just bought the M51 (Used to be Z51) for $284 shipped from Walmart. Amazon has them also. They were made for Canada but Amazon and Walmart got some.

Don't know if anyone else bought the M51 From Walmart or Amazon but at both places the price went up from $270 to $295.

Got my M51 Today. Other than labels it looks like the Z51. Tried to register it and it isn't listed on their site to register. So I sent in the Warranty card instead. Put in some gas and it fired right up. Quieter than I remembered. One thing I did notice is it doesn't have the vented gas cap like the Z51 did.

I will ignore the warning about posting in a topic after its been dead for over 120 days since this thread seems to be on point.  I have an Eskimo Barracuda Plus 10-inch auger I picked up used for a hundo a few years ago.  I love having the big ten inch holes for hauling in the giant fish I always seem to catch.   ;D  Anyway, the throttle assembly corroded and began to stick at WOT, which is great until the hole is done drilled.  So I disassembled it to clean it up but, the lesson of Hansel and Gretel lost on me, stupidly did not take pictures of the linkage assembly or draw a schematic for use in reassembly.  Would anyone out there with this model please be so kind as to post some close up shots from different angles of the throttle assembly from different angles, or point to a blown up schematic, so I can put this thing back together?  I hate to be forced to bring it to a shop since the repair would likely be as much as I paid for it, and its a great auger so I'd love to keep using it until it falls apart.

This thread has pre approval for Zombie status, it's never dead, only resting during the off season..

I need to get my Mako 43 out, gas her up, and get her ready to go.  We finally have some colder weather forecasted and it happens to arrive just after a forecasted 6" snowfall.  A decent snowfall + cold weather is usually the magic combination to get my favorite lake to finally freeze up when it's overdue!

Hello all,  I have a Z71 Shark that since I have owned it does not like to drill when it gets much below zero. In a warm garage, you can turn the flights by hand easily. In  sub-zero temps, not so much. I have to put down pressure on the ice and slowly work the head back and forth, then throttle up a little see if it moves and try again. Basically trying to work it loose. After awhile of doing this, It will finally take off and drill like a screaming banshee, But, I can detect a faint burnt brake or clutch smell.  I called the wonderful folks at Ardisam and they thought I probably need a new clutch. I can't say enough about this company. They have been super helpful when I was experiencing a fuel leak on this same auger and also when I needed to rebuild my 10" ION X after an unfortunate incident.
   My question is, has anyone ever experienced it and is there a repair manual available? Or does someone possibly have a procedure? Thank you very much in advance for any help that anyone could offer.

That is exactly what I was hoping for! Thank you so much for the help. I wouldn't be in this fix of having to get my 2 stroke auger back in shape if I hadn't run over my ION with my snowmobile :'(. I really appreciate the help!

Fuel line and grommet kit for Eskimo
« Reply #2772 on: Feb 19, 2021, 04:31 AM »
Fuel line/grommet kit...

My Mako43 has started leaking through the grommet.  Does the fuel line/grommet kit solve the problem long term, or will it also start leaking in a couple of years?  If so, I might try glopping on a bunch of Shoe Goo sealant or something like that.

Thanks for any info,
Bob

Don't know the answer but I have that Shoe Goo on one of my Sorel boots now for the 3rd year and it worked great.

What are you people doing on our thread?  Are you F.O.E.A.O. certified?! Alta ice, come back!!! :roflmao:   :roflmao:

Put in a new grommet! Use silicone spray on grommet to keep it pliable. Good hardware stores have bins of grommets from small to huge. Don't use GOO on a GROMMET. Gotta keep it soft!

"You people"?   :-\  I joined back in December of 2017.  It was actually a friendly place then...  I guess it's changed.  I'll bow out.

No this idiot ordered something else through the USPS. It arrives April 4th. Thankfully it isn't Ice gear. Just some memory SD cards. I guess I wasn't thinking when I posted Shoe goo for a gas tank. Yeah that ain't happening. I once used some 2 part Jb weld on a Oil cover. Worked out pretty good.

And Rebelss no Memory jokes.
