jiffy stealth

9 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone is using the stealth and how it works. I have a legend with a 10 inch auger, which is not very handy for going after panfish. I would like to buy a 8 inch auger. I have searched the web for the stealth auger(without powerhead) but it does not seem to be availiable.

I thought you could buy the auger withhout the powerhead directly from Jiffy. I'll have to check a bit later on that when I get a chance.

Thanks Dan, I did look on jiffys web site and found every auger but that one. Though I am not very computer friendly I could have missed it.

I was told that the stealth auger alone won't be available until next year.

I suppose that's what they want. To see if you want that auger so bad that you'll buy a new powerhead to get it.

Yea, it doesn't look like the auger alone is available. Fourplay, your probably right about that being the reason. They may want to wait until the Stealth is not the hot seller to offer the replacement augers.

I'd give them a call, seeing you have a Stealth and see if they will set you up.

checked with jiffy last season about the stealth auger for my old model 30 and was told it was not compatable , so swapped auger with a friends stealth and cut just like his,now will just wait it out.
model 30 specs. 12:1 ratio, 390 rpm's ccw.
stealth specs. 12:1 ratio, 390 rpm's ccw.
seems like there compatable.

I got a new 10" this year and it is sweet. I to was told that they wouldn't be compatable but they have the same powerhead same shaft and hole bolt. I think that it is something that they are trying to promote buy a whole new auger rather than just the bit.. The only thing I can think of is if they changed something in the gearbox to beef it up (increase torque).

    • Bummer. Battling a cough/cold here and the snooze alarm won this morning.  Hopefully I'll get out later this week.
    •   I use them and they seem to work fine. I guess with the poppin version I don't really walk them, I just work them in the holes and around other Bassy looking cover. I don't work them real fast. My guess is you would probably want to use the standard style for walking them.   Cret what versions did you test for walking, the standard styles or the poppin versions? 
    • Looked them up.   Personally they seem underpowered but it will depend on how much water you need to remove when you finally need that pump. The water powered pumps performance is based on water pressure. If you have 60+ psi then you can get 500-900 gpm and it looks like you will use 1 gallon of tap water for every 2 you pump out of the pit. For comparison I generally use 3/4 horse pumps at a minimum for the pumps which gives you something north of 3000 gph.   I'm not real sure if code and insurance even allow them so check first. If you have a small house and if the sump doesn't get used much it might be an option.
    • Just returned home last night. Had 3 Jake's come in at 7am on my 1st morning and decided to pass on them. Never saw or heard a Tom the next 5 days. Oh well maybe I learned a lesson. Good luck to all.  
    • Never saw a water driven pump. The ones I use and know if are the battery backup kind. They are sold at all if the big box stores and are around $300 I believe. They run off of an automotive type battery that has a trickle charger attached to it to maintain the charge. You have as much backup power as your battery has capacity and then that pump is dead as well so it's a short term solution.having a generator is very helpful as part of the backup plan.
    • I missed one last night.   Shot a 3D archery shoot yesterday and did really well.  From there straight to my blind for an evening hunt.  Big tom came in to 32 yards. I ranged him, dialed in my sight and slid one just passed him. That's as far as I've ever shot with my bow but was feeling pretty confident after shooting all day. Oh well.   Sitting in another spot right now and as of 6:30 have not yet heard a peep.  Can't sit long today, dang work always getting in the way of my fun.
    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
