Auger Extensions

11 posts in this topic

I need an extension for my Jiffy auger and I see that they make a 6" - 12" adjustable extension as well as a standard 12". It seems like such a small difference between 6" and 12". Should I be getting the adjustable extension?

wiseguy, I have a 6inch & 12inch for my lazer mag & have never needed the 12. But it is nice to have if I ever run into that much ice. GOOD FISHIN DOUG

If you ever go to Lake of the Woods in March you will want one that can go to 12". I have a 12 in on mine for in my crank up fish house since it is so far off of the ground then I don't have to bend over so far when opening holes. I even have one that is about 18" long just incase. There is nothing worse than getting to where you want to fish and not be able to get thought the ice.

If you are only going to buy one get the 12". Obviously, you may not need it all the time but when you do you will be glad got it. For the few times you need an extension, a 12 is the way to go.

Thanks for the input guys! IcePro - Your argument made sense so I took your advice and got the adjustable. The fact that FleetFarm had no Jiffy auger extensions and Gander Mountain only had the adjustable made my decision a little easier.

I picked up a Strikemaster 12" extension today at Lakes Gas Co. 39th & Washington N.
Mpls. They had 3 of the 12 inchers left.
$7.99+ tax. They also had 20 inchers.
I think the guy said about $10 or $11 bucks.
Good Luck...

Booth extensions are the same in overall length. The 6"-12" adjustable just has an addtional hole drilled in it.

Go with the adjustable and you won't be second guessing yourself.

Scrupper

The extensions from Strike Master are hollow tubing. Jiffy is sold steel. That is why choosy icefisherman prefer JIFFY.

Thank you for your comments Icepro.
I posted the information because I've seen the same auger extensions going for $18 at a retailers name that is frequently posted through out this site. Just trying to pass along a savings to the members of this site that use strikemaster as do I.
Good Luck...

Yep! Lakes Gas company (formerly Natrogas) propane supplier, is clearing out strikemaster extentions at half off! "I'll take a 20" please".

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.

    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
