  1. I run mine horizontally. No issues.
  2. "They" As in Milwaukee?
  3. I go over the snow
  4. All set up; ready to drill on Monday
  5. I built it. It's 6' x10' aluminum skid house. Figure about 700lb
  6. It's going to depend how important floatation is to you. In the pic I'm going across a grassy meadow and the snow is well over 2' ATV is only sinking in maybe 8"
  7. I agree, the reason for tracks is for floatation. The wider track is going to give you way more. My brother and I both run Camso T4S on our ATV's
  8. Well I couldn't resist; picked up a 8" Nils auger blue with red blade for $120 Now to make a power adaptor for a power drill
  9. Thanks for the info. Jim I understand the differences in the adaptor end but wonder differences in the business end (blade and flighting) I plan on using the auger inside a house with a drill. Do you stick with the orange premade setup or if I find a good deal on the blue auger do I pick it up and make an adapter? Maybe the blue auger doesn't work good with a drill.
  10. How is the Nils for redrilling partially froze over holes? What is the difference between the blue and orange 8" Nils as far as blade and flighting? One longer than the other or have advantages over the other? I can make the power adaptor for the blue auger if needed.
  11. Hmm, nobody has tried these augers?
  12. http://nilsmaster.com/website2016_010.htm http://kdrillauger.com/8-inch-k-drill-ice-auger.html Watching YouTube videos the Nils auger sure looks smoother and doesn't seem to throw the shavings as much as the Kdrill does which is a plus
  13. For those that have tried both which do you prefer and why? Looking at the 8" augers to use with cordless drill
  14. How is your sheeting attached? I don't see any screws?
