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.

    • You do know Uncle Bengahzi........that burns are covered by the ACA.
    •   The best system is one where consumers are left with a choice, so yes. I would agree.
    •   In other words, officer duffy, and the rest of the lib - tard nation's got nothing...     Lolololo.....

    • Nothing is going to be perfect but right now we pay way more for healthcare than anyone else, whatever we are doing is only lining the pockets of the industry and worse yet we are forced to pay. Let me know where it says in the constitution we have the right to be forced into paying high healthcare premiums, it doesn't exactly sound like America the free.

      Maybe someday I will research healthcare and write a report for you but I don't have the time right now. As I see it cutting out the middle man is good for 320+ millions Americans vs a tiny fraction of health insurance industry. We need to stop catering to tiny fractions of people for monetary gain and look at the big picture.
    • Will do.  We were just up there for ice fishing on Bass. First the drizzle and rain came, then the wind blew us all the way home.  We did get in some good sight fishing for bass though. 3-5 fow on the edge of reeds.  Real cool to see the bass come in and take your lure that shallow.  We got a couple of 18" +.

    • Del is that you shooting down any kind of change again? It can happen as soon as we decide we need to start doing what is in the best interests of the voters instead of what is right for some small segment of the economy. The politicians fear losing their jobs more than they fear these special interest groups. Even the far right has to see that letting the insurance industry have it's way and even worse force people to sign up for this stuff is a total crock. Ya ya we could go to a free market and let the market decide but I don't even know if we have free markets when it comes to big $$$ industries. They get what they want and we are forced to pay, not exactly a free market. Now if we could find a way to get there that would be great but there is way to much influence to let that happen.
    •   I think the countries in Europe that have systems that work still have insurance companies.   Why don't you research how it works in Germany and Switzerland, and get back to us with a report.    The problem with single payer is that, as we see with medicaid, that the government is tempted to reimburse at too low a level to sustain the providers.   Even the Brits seem to have a private system with insurance that runs in parallel with the government providers.    As for government providers in this country, the VA is an example. 
    • Probably 24 foot with a swing tounge. If garage is shorter than that your going to take up a lot of space to angle it as it takes a lot to gain a little.
    • Started at the new easement yesterday, thinking fishing would be lights out. But that just wasn't the case. Fished the bridge crossing on liberty road for the first time. Nice little spot, but the houses are too close to the river for my liking. Kids spent the entire time playing in the woods and making "trout traps". I caught 5 brown trout, including 2 12 inchers that were really bright creamy brown colored. Black panther martin with brown dots did the trick. Bugs started showing up late afternoon, but there still wasn't much surface activity. Hopefully with the warm temps through next week, things will really be hoppin' next week!
