I have not gotten into any of the my dog is bigger than yours on this subject, it seems if you look at the posts there are far more complaints about other brands not starting,not ideling, dying at the bottom of hole etc. I have had my eskie 3 years and have had not one complaint!

I got a shark this year and love it ! It's the easiest starting auger I've owned. They all cut when their blades are sharp, Jiffy, Strikemaster, the problems usually encountered are tough starts and bogging down when cutting. My Eskimo starts on the second or third pull every time, whether it's 30 degrees or -30 degrees and idles immediately. It runs at 11500 rpm so I just brace one handle on my leg, hang on, and let it pull itself through the ice as fast as it can cut.
Bottom line....I'd but another one over a another Strikemaster or Jiffy today.....but time will tell. I've probably only cut 150 holes with it so far.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
