Default Best Power Auger

What is the best power auger for the money? Something reliable. Eskimo or strikemaster? I am leaning toward a strikemaster Any in put would be great.

if you don't want to have to ever buy another auger, get a jiffy, eskimos are probably the worst, strikemasters are okay but their blades suck to have to replace all the time. the jiffy stealth has a 3 year warranty on their blades,2 years on the gear box and a year on the engine, who else has a warranty like that?

I still use a Strikemaster 8" chipper that my pop bought back in 1989. I usually drill 30-50 holes per outing,sometimes more.That thing has prolly cut 10,000 holes-fires right up everytime!

I also have the strikemaster w/ the chipper blade and it works great.
I have an eskimo hand auger that you can have. If you promise never to give it back.

It sounds like I'm a minority, but my 10" Eskimo Barracuda works great for me and was cheap ($250 after ice out). It's got a 3 HP Tecumseh engine that runs great. The only downside is that it's kind of heavy, but so am I, so I can't really fault it for that, can I?

What about Eskimos do the rest of you not like? General statements don't really help someone figure out the pros and cons of different augers.

No brainer" a Jiffy for me. The deal is staying out of ice that has alot of sand blown on it, or as usual mixed in it" Good luck....
