Strikemaster Ice Augers
**Edit I looked at the Strikemaster website and the yellow button must be the compression button. My auger is about 5 years old and does not have a primer ball to press if this info helps
A buddy bought the auger for 50 bux, so the power head was free.
All I had to do was pick up some heavy gauge jumper cables on clearance at Menards and a connector @ Grainger and voila.
Best of both world's switching between the gas and electric for the 7".
Lazer blades stay sharp if you let them do their thing without much down force.
Also it cut with ice caked on the drill. My Jiffy will not cut well like that at all, but this thing kept going. It actually will pull you down to the ice if you don't let off the throttle when you cut through.
I've been lugging my heavy jiffy around but my next will be a much lighter drill. I drill too many holes for such a heavy drill, going to kill myself.
Strikemasters well ive seen one this year and it was the old powerhead not the new solo.
