How do you keep the auger from falling through if it comes "unchucked"??
Blades are dirt cheap for the Nero too.

Incase you’re still looking for options - I got a dewalt and strike master lite flight 8”. Purchased the auger last month and love it. It’s normally $200 and going for $135 right now at glens

What is it like without a Clam plate when your drill gets caught on the bottom lip of the hole and tries to pull you down on the ice?

I’m not using a clam plate either and it isn’t bad as long as your drill has the side handle. Thickest ice I’ve cut through is 10”

The Nero hasn't grabbed yet. It pulls a little but you just pull back!

I have the 6" nils with a standard 18v milwaukee with no side handle. Ive easily gone through 18" inches of ice with just bracing my second hand on the back of the drill. Nils cuts crazy efficiently, came with a handle to cut by hand, and has a plate on the top bigger than the auger diameter if the bit slips out. Im on my second season and absolutely love this setup.
