Jiffy Stealths

5 posts in this topic

I am curious how this auger works. I am thinking about buying a new Jiffy before next season. Since, my jiffy that I currently run which is 20 years old needs a little work I am starting to get some pretty good blow by. So am wondering what everyone who has one of this type auger liked them. I am trying to decide whether to get on or if it is worth if for me to fix it. Actually I will probably do both. Also I am not interested in a Strikemaster so I don't want to hear any comments on them since I am a Jiffy guy through and through you wouldn't be able to convince me to get one anyhow. Thanks.

I have had a Jiffy Legend 2 HP for 2 seasons now. It is perfect. I don't have the Stealth blade, but I do have the Teflon coated DeIcer blade they offered at the time I bought mine. The new blades have a larger center cutter instead of just a centering point. I have never been diappointed in the way mine cuts.

Thanks for the info on the Legends. I know all about Legends, Models 30, etc. I just want to hear from someone that has used a Stealth. I don't care if it is a 2 or 3 hp I am just more interested in what they thing of the drill itself. I would only buy a 3 hp anyways. Thanks

My girlfriend(now Fiance, for obvious reasons) bought me a 9" 3hp Jiffy Legend Stealth for Christmas. I love it. I went on 4 trips way up north this winter and it was the only auger we brought on the last 3 after lugging another one around on the first on. It is very reliable and you almost have to lift the auger up while it cuts because it pulls through the ice so fast. It is not as fast as a Strikemaster lazer, but 3 or 4 seconds is not really going to make that much difference for me. It is the easiest auger I have ever drilled a hole with. It makes me laugh when I see other guys laying and jumping on their augers to get them to cut. Highly recommended. Easily the best auger I, or any of my fishing buddies have ever used.

My wife bought me the Legend 3 horse with 8" blade. It is the first auger I've ever owned but I have done a little research after getting it. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I got to use it for several trips this year and it cuts thru the ice like a hot knife thru butter. The strikemaster folks will complain about the wobble etc. etc. I called Jiffy because mine does this too, but it's supposed to! Also, the gear box is quality made and does not need to be greased. Very easy upkeep. I would highly recommend one, nothing but a sturdy, quality built machine.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
