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.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
