Pretty damn impressive Cutt. I wouldn't of believed it without seeing it.
But how many of those can you do in a day? My money's still on my 3hp Jiffy.
If I take my time, I cut them in about 30 seconds through 12-15" of ice.  I can cut four one right after another, then I don't need to cut anymore for awhile.  I have cut more than 20 holes in 24"+ of ice at Chambers Lake with that same auger.  With a lazer hand auger, I'm even faster - just don't own one right now (cost twice as much as Mora, but aren't twice as good).

too bad, he didn't get the video of me drilling lots of holes with my power drill connected to a 12V motorcycle battery.  I even did it with an 8" hand auger mounted.  Someone remarked it drilled faster than his 10" gas auger (don't remember who), but he was right.

For all you skeptics who lack faith in hand augers and power drills - Take that!   ;D

It clearly doesn't matter how many holes you can drill, or by what method. I didn't get a single bite.

It was the best of times.  It was the worst of time.

Great times fishing, but the only time I have ice fished without even a bite.

Thanks for the free coffee, hot dogs, and good times, everyone.

Cutt:

It was me with my 10" lazer mag...i do think I need a new blade but still...!  Very impressed!
You aughta see what happens when I hook it up to the correct voltage, rather than running the 14.4 V drill on a 12 V battery.  Sometimes it startles me how quickle it bites into the ice.  In white ice and combination (white & clear), the setup really flies through -  and my drill is really about the minimum torque you want to use for augering ice.
