Otter "Ice Sheild" Auger Guard

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone else tried one of these yet? I bought one a couple of weeks ago in Duluth - (noone carries them around here). I just took it out of the box last night and all it is is a cylinder with a handle on it to put over your drill. There is nothing in there to actually attach it to the auger. I used a bungie cord but that will not hold it on straight. I am sure I can figure something out but I am wondering if something was missing out of the box? Anybody know?

I am sure it will work great to protect the rest of my gear while traveling in the Otter sled and fish house I am going to buy.

thanks in advance,

Dr. Bob

Doc,
No bungee cord comes with the Ice Shield. It's made for protecting your canvas, or the interior of a Suburban type vehicle, from getting cut by the auger blade. The auger stays in good when you carry the unit by the Ice Shield handle.

Thanks,

I was just wondering. The small picture of the unit on the box shows it on an auger and there looks like there is something attaching it to the auger ( and holding it square on the auger). Also you would think they would supply you with a means of securing it to the auger to keep it from vibrating off in transport. I think the thing is a great idea but can use some improvement. I guess I'll have to customize it a little.

    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice.
