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.

i use the Milwaukee brushless hammer drill with a 6 inch Nils and 20 holes in 10 plus inches does not even use one bar worth of power on a 5 ah battery must be using a very dull blade.

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.

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
