Re: Cordless drill vs power auger few ????
Everything in life has its limits. I have one of those adapters on a 6" Laser and it work great with a 18V Lithium Makita (450 IN LBS Torque), up to a point. Torque with these setups is an issue, the new Milwaukee 24V Lithium (600 IN LBS Torque) should be a smoker. I only take one battery, and I keep it in a pocket to keep it WARM. I also have a power auger, it should be noted, as I only use the Makita drill up to about 10" to 12" ice conditions. Also, a 6" hole is too small for Mac Fishing, IMO. As to the post about the eskimo auger above, they come with shims to "adjust" the blade pitch, and if pitched wrong, will skate like the guy said. Pitched correctly, they are similair to a Mora, not the fastest, but work fine in a wide range of ice conditions.
