Default Building electric drill auger.

After popping 100's of holes chasing perch with Dropshots M18/6" Mora im sold. Got the clam plate for $50. Already have the Mora 6".

Now I need the meat of the situation. The drill. M18 Fuel with 2- 4 A/h BATTS IS $229. 3YR. WARRANTY ON THE DRILL.

Ridgid is $179, comes with 2- 2.0 A/H batts. LIFETIME warranty on the drill and batts.

These are both the brushless motor hammer drills.

Can get a ridgid 2-pak of 4 A/H batts for $99.
So now im at $279.

Or I can get the Ridgid gen5 hammer drill/ impact driver combo with 2- 4.0 A/H batts for $279.

Hmm-

Dude, talk to your boy Boon... that guy will find a way for one of the companies to pay you to use their drill... he has mad skills when it comes to finding super deals.... and he has also done the research on the best drill for the buck.

Get the M18 Fuel with the 4 A/h batteries. I have never even used the second battery on any trips so far. You might consider adding the extension for the plate, making a little easier on your back and for thicker ice. I think the Pikester has an extra one for $15.

I ordered the same deal on the Fuel the other day, should be here in a couple more days. I originally had the Kobalt 20v but needed a new drill for the house so it is going to my shop and use the Fuel for the ice, had the best reviews from everything I've read. Boon is taking my last extension but BPS had them the last time I was there a couple weeks ago.

Fool you should no better then buying Homeowner grade tools or have you forgotten your blue collar days. Really the only time I have to replace Milwaukee tools is from being stolen from the jobsite.

My bro went with the Fuel but he has it paired up with a 6" Nils. Butter. One of the homies is going to let his Prius go at the end of the year and go with the Nils combo (Orange 6").

Thats cool. I dont need the extension I will use this setup for chasing panfish mostly metro stuff ice wont get much thicker than what weve seen this year. Or early 11-mile when the ice is only 4-8" anyways.

Slayer... if you get the Fuel, you will abandon every other auger you own... it has the power to handle 11 mile ice with an 8" bit.
