heard some negative feedback on the new Honda strikemaster, don't really know what to belief though. any opinions there would be appreciated. never been that big of a jiffy guy because the model thirty I had was not a very dependable auger but not ruling out the new propane jiff. might just watch cl to see whats out there. if I could find one of the early 2000 strikemasters with the Tecumseh motor for a descent price that may be an option also. also curious for a little info on the german solo engines. thanks for any info and good luck on the water

I bought a Jiffy Pro 4 3 years ago and it is without a doubt the best out there. No mixing gas, no gas spilage, Starts every time on the first pull, cuts great. I'd never buy another gasoline auger. The one pull starting alone is enough to keep me buying the product. The only maintenance I do is change the crankcase oil at the beginning of the season.

The Nils 270 8" auger price is inline with the other quality brands out there. 7 year warranty too! They offer a professional grade 350 model that is higher.

Companies are really working hard to make augers lighter and lighter these days. Nothing wrong with being able to handle or preferring a heavier type model, but for me personally, having the ION has really increase my mobility and it's easier to carry in the sled too. It's like a chainsaw, the lighter the better as long as it cuts what you need it to cut. Just my opinion. There are some nice brands other than ION that are getting really light as well.
