which hand auger to buy?

4 posts in this topic

well, it's time to replace the mora auger, and was curious what to replace it with.

i figured it was a no brainer go with the lazer, but i just talked to a guy that said he used one this weekend that was even better than the lazer. but don't know who makes it.

i guess you use both arms to turn the auger, it doesn't have the knob on top for down pressure, i guess it just pulls itself into the ice,

i see jiffy makes one that looks like that and i also found one that was an eskimo.

so what do you guys suggest?

The two handled auger you refered to is made by Nil Master. Cabelas carries them under some other name, something High Velocity, I can't remember the full name.

They are the real deal, however. They are the best hand auger I have ever seen.

I'm still trying to get used to the two handed method, but I give it high marks on my limited use with it so far. Quality workmanship, a little heavier than Strikemaster hand augers, my 8" Nils weighs close to ten pounds. But it is worth the extra weight and money for its' ice penetration capability. I would think you could find one on sale at this time of year at Cabelas.

    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.

    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
