Strikemaster 10" auger with 2HP motor?

4 posts in this topic

I was thinking about buying a Strikemaster 10" power auger with a 2Hp motor and I was wondering if anyone has had any problems with them. I have used a 9" and really liked the light weight and speed of it but I have heard that the 10" augers are slow. Has anybody used one? Do you like it?

I had a 10" Strikemaster 2 hp auger and I did not like it. The 2 hp is not enough for the 10" auger. The auger would "grab" the ice instead of cutting through it. I would have to lift the auger up to free the blades and then drop it down again. It also bounced around alot and did not cut a "clean" hole, the hole would end up being more the 10". This was a brand new auger with sharp blades. I returned it the next day and got the 8". What a difference!

I have a 10" 2hp auger. I bought it new last year and never had a problem. It started on the first or second light pull and it I cut up to 20" of ice in no time flat. Granted the 8" might be a little faster but why is everyone in such a hurry? Fishing is supposed to be relaxing! I wouldn't give up my auger for anything!

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.

    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
