id get a basic 2hp jiffy with the ripper blades, the stealth blades are nice but dull quickly and are expensive, i like jiffy's because they have very little plastic, im not dissin on strikemaster there great because there so light and powerful, but once two years ago my buddy's strikemaster blew over in the wind and busted the frozen handle off. Get metal , get a jiffy, just my two cents.

Thanks for the reply. I agree about the plastic beleive me its a deterrent! just want something that will reliably drill a damn hole! not worried about the motor so much (make a living working on 2-strokes) im looking for integrity around the motor! and good blades
