I was looking through the cabela's winter catalog and they have a Jiffy 8" power auger that weighs just 16 lbs. Cutthroat are you listening?
I would consider myself the owner! ;D You gots to have your priorities. I was going to make it $500 cash, but I realized my wife would probably make me pay the mortgage with it, if I found cash.Ken Broeren said:
I find that you can sqeeze even the largest laker through a 9/16" hole, if you apply enough force. ;DTrout said:Mr. Cutt the nice thing about your auger is the compatiliblity with any 1/2" drill bit set. Do you go with the 3/4" bit when fishing for lakers. Have you thought about using a masonary hammer drill. J/K
It would be great for that, especially with a 5" auger. Put what little gear you need on a small sled, pull up and drill holes wherever you want, fish, and move on. You could cover a lot of ground on foot and drill a lot of holes without killing yourself.TroutFishingBear said:would probably be a good one when running and gunning after crappie or perch schools!
Cutthroat said:It's a little cheap, if you're looking for something 18V or higher, but just right if you can settle for a good one with 14.4 V or lower. For drilling ice, I hook up to an external battery for extra juice to drill lots of holes, and 12V batteries don't turn 18-19.2 V drills fast enough to do the job. Plenty of amps for torque, but not enough volts for sufficient RPM's.
In any case, I do my research and amazon has a good DeWalt 18V cordless for $115 (even less than I estimated):
My Jiffy 3HP 10" only cost me 70 bucks, granted it was several years old, but it runs like a dream and costs less then your Cadilac screwdriver Cutt.
