Gas Augers vs Propane Augers
On a side note: my buddies often use my auger rather than smell like fuel from using their own.
- Very easy to start
- 1 propane tank will last nearly all winter
- Cuts fast
- No worrying about mixing / spilling gas
- Very heavy, nearly 50 lbs
- The throttle is kind of weak, it feels like they could have put a more heavy duty throttle on it. I was using it in -25F at LoTW last year and the throttle would stick(freeze?) so when I'd start it, it would be wide open. This has been my only real concern so far. After bringing it inside and thawing out over night, I had no further problems.
All and all, switching to propane has worked out great for me.
