Anyone have a Jiffy Legend Lightning?

9 posts in this topic

Stealth. Stealth. Stealth. I got a brand new, 3hp Jiffy Legend/Lightening with the Stealth cutting system for Christmas. I love it and so does everybody that uses it. Mine has a 9" hole and flies through the ice. I have been on three big(3 day) fishing trips up to the URL and Lake of Woods area with it and it cuts through thick ice fast. The first trip my buddy hauled his along and after fighting with his for four holes, he used mine after that. The other three trips we left all the other augers at home. It is a great auger that us actually have to hold up, instead of pushing down. Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!

But the question I was most interested in is whether the D-icer armor works. Water freezes to my Lazer pretty quickly, so how does the Jiffy do in that category? Is the D-icer a Teflon coating? Teflon doesn't work for squat. I shelled out the bucks for a Teflon coated Jiffy slush spoon and the dang thing ices up as fast as the cheapos.

I bought a Jiffy Legend last year after X-mas with the D-icer armor. It still ices up some, but not too bad, the only places that really cause problems are when you get a cone of ice on the sides of the chisel point, or ice buildup in the opening by the blade. This only happens when you set the auger in the snow/slush after drilling a hold on a cold (<10 deg.). The slush/snow sticks and freezes to the wet bottom of the auger. If you're careful and set it down on its side after drilling, it generally isn't a problem.

Yes, the teflon does still ice up, but knocking the ice off is much easier with it on the auger. I also have one of their dippers, and it iced up too. Banging it on the ice got rid of it, but also tended to bend the handle back. Of course, that's not a problem any more because now I've got a BIG DIPPER!

Can you put these new stealth blades on an older jiffy auger that did not origionaly come with them? I have a Jiffy legend that is about 4 years old and I would like to put these stealth blades on if I can.

Thanx, Dave

Thinking about buying one, but was wondering how the D-icer armor and the Ripper serrated blades work. Does anyone know the difference between the Stealth and the standard D-icer Ripper head? Thanks.

Anyone know the weight of the Jiffy 2hp? I can get a real good deal on the Strikemaster Mag 3000, but didn't think I needed the extra weight. I have heard that the Jiffy's are a little heavier so if the 2hp is as heavy as the 3hp strikemaster I can get the strikemaster about 50 bucks cheaper than the Jiffy 2hp.

I have the 2 HP Legend Lightning with a 8" auger. I know it weighs 7 pounds less than a 3 HP model.

My Jiffy ices up only when it is -5 deg. It does not seem to effect the drilling though. Just makes a mess when it warms up in the back of the Yukon on the drive home. It is not nearly as bad as my buddies Strikemaster, though.

    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL 
    • Leech is absolutely on the right track.  Likely an easy remedy here.
    • Oh yes, he has been around guns since young. I suspect it is a combination of his thinking they are "cool" weapons and the fact that he lives and often has to work in a "high tension" area. I believe he is more interested in high cap than high quality and he can likely spend something reasonable. Since these things are not my bag I am unaware of pricing, features etc. just told him I could ask around for him. Have never had one in my hands! He may have been fired up because he saw some special at F.Farm on them. Thanks.
    • No battery in a 185 3 wheeler. Will have to pull it by hand.
    •   Does he own other guns?   What does he want it for? Self defense Hunting Just to own an AR because they are cool   How much money does he have to spend on one?
