    My dad's jiffy finally gave in (clutch blew, motor still good) last year after 20+ years. Went out and bought another one for the next 20

    no experience with the eskimos, but jiffy's have bin around a long time, as previous poster mentioned, they last for years... they also build alot of muscle as they seem to enjoy being pulled on multiple times before starting... but still better than hand augering

    mines bin good, only had to have it serviced once in the 7 years ive owned it... had to replace the recoil once, due to pulling it a million times lol

    Sounds like you need to tweek your high speed jet a tad , Steve . And use Amsoil sabre at 100-1 and she will fire right up . Over 15 years and mines still barking and growling on any cold frosty morning within three pulls of the cord .

    I have an Jiffy STX for 6 or 5 years now, always worked good but it's not bullyproof. I broke a few plastic things here and there but nothing to bad.
