Have bad back and my 10" jiffy causes just too much pain. Looking for recommendations for liter auger any help appreciated. Thanks Switch
Recommendations Lite auger
I made an adapter pin for an old 6” Mora and use a 18v Dewalt drill. Even small batteries are good for better than a dozen holes in 12” of ice.
I carry three batteries but have never needed more than 2. Keep them warm and they’ll last even longer.
The adapter is three sided so it doesn’t slip in the chuck, and I had three Moras sitting around. I already had the drill. :-)
I recommend Jiffy Pro Light Propane. Not as light as an electric but dependable.
I'm with EyeFishPro, Just picked up the Eskimo Pistol bit 8". Bit weights less than 4 lbs. Hooked it to my M18 Milwaukee and cut over 20 holes thru 10-12 inches of ice while only using 1/4 of my battery!
Incredibly smooth, quiet and light and way faster than my old Jiffy.
I am 80 and just got the Milwaukee drill, Clam Plate and Strikemaster auger. Light and anxious to use. Need ice in south east Wisconsin.
Milwaukee mud mixer with 8” strikemaster Mora maybe 12 lbs cuts about 25 holes at 12” on a 5ah battery probably do 75 on a 12ah
I’d like the Ion 8 inch it’s probably the Lightest one out there for drills , or Just get a Milwaukee 21 V The batteries last forever ! All you need is a 6 inch hole you’re talking maybe 5 pounds that’s what I use he can cut up to 15 to 20 holes easy on one charge.
Thank you everyone for the responses.
Based off of an 8" bit:
Strikemaster 40v - 24 pounds
Ion - 22 pounds
40v Trophy Strike - 22 pounds
Brushless Hammer Drill set up - varies depending on size of battery used, what type of adapter used, and type of bit. These can range anywhere from about 10lbs up to just under 20 pounds.
Eskimo F1 - 22 pounds
Eskimo P1 - 26 pounds
