true but as a back up or a hiking auger you just might have to be nice to it.

unfortunately its also an internet only item.

For $13 it is worth checking out. I mean if it lasts a season of icing than it is worth it.

Harbor Freight us like the .99 Cent store for tools..LOL

That being said.. you can def. get some worthwhile deals there! Just dont expect them to last forever.

I actually bought a pneumatic cutter/grinder with a 4" blade there last week to do some cutting on an exhaust..

It worked GREAT!! Still works and it was only $7.99!! For $7.99 if it only works 2-3 times or even until the stock blade is gone it is well worth $7.99 IMO

I bought a grinder there about 10 years ago and its still going strong and I used the heck out of it dropped it and the case finally broke and I used JB weld to fix it still going strong

Got my 5" auger today. Much better quality than I antisipated. Folding design is really nice for packing and the blades seem to be good quailty. If I didnt know I only paid $13 buck for it I dont think I would know any different.

I will post pics later, hoping to test it out later today.

Come on Metro Ice!!!

Tried out the Harbor Freight 5" auger today on a couple of inches at Chatfield. Although it is a different style auger, you use both hands going in opposite direction to drill vs. one hand steady and the other drilling around it, the auger worked great! The blades are very sharp and started cutting immedietly, no slippage.

It seems that Harbor Freight is out of these augers for now but I would recommend buying one when they are back in stock. For 13 buck it is a great back up/back packing/ seperate flasher hole auger.
