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.

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
