anyone use a core auger?

7 posts in this topic

my bro returned from a weekend at LOW and his inlaws had a core arger,(3'x 8" steel cylinder) he said it worked very slick, just push the ice under and very little scooping to do, reopens holes easy too, where would one find one of these? do they work as good as he said? the only thing I would worrie about especialy up at LOW would be what to do when you have more than 3' of ice..

You might not be able to find one of these these things are old. My dad has one and it is at least 30 years old. If you have a gas auger stick with it.

I saw one for sale at Reed's in Walker. This was right after christmas so I dont know if it is still there. They are still being made by someone. Dont know for sure who it is.

There called Big Ern's core auger. A local store in Grand Fork's carries them. They retail for $140. If I remember right they are made by someone close to the Grand Forks area.

I saw a demonstration video for them a couple winters back at Home of Economy in Grand Forks. Home of Economy outdoors department is (701) 795-3580. Someone there should know the deal, and if you're too far to go there to pick one up, I'm sure they'll ship it.

I believe the product does not include a powerhead, but is supposed to fit major brand auger heads.

They don't come with the power head. Home of Economy's # is 701-795-3580. That is where I seen them. I was just in there today. They had them for Jiffy's, Eskimo's and they had one that wasn't in a box and wasn't labeled for what it fit.

Core Augers are GREAT!

Just remember to leave all the cores around your house, and I know that the snowmobile traffic will go WAY down!!!!

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
