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.
