      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Nils 4 Stroke???

Recommended Posts

Awhile back I made a post and said that I had seen somewhere that Nils has a 4 stroke coming out, a few of you thought I was looney. I couldn't remember where I saw it, but today I seen it again- page 85 of the In Fisherman Ice Annual. It says:

The newest auger from Nils USA is the four stroke, phase 2 EPA compliant model TED-270PFDH, with a wide frame, large fuel capacity and a transmission lock to allow easier "lifting out" if the auger sticks in thick ice.

I KNEW I wasn't crazy. I might be today, but not a month ago when I made that post.

Actually that issue has been out for quite a while and it's been discussed a few times, maybe even the same post you mentioned.

Anyways, it's a typo. No 4 stroke at this time.

At least that is info coming from Northlander.

Here is a link describing the Tanaka TED-270PFR that may be the "270" engine used in the new powerhead:

(** No Four Stroke Mentioned**)

Here is a link to the Tanaka TED-262DH (DH stands for "dual handle") that serves as the current powerhead to the Nils auger:

Im guessing they slapped the dual handles on the TED-270PR and thus it becomes the TED-270PRDH.

This of course is just speculation, but id say it is a fairly good bet.

Kinda agree Gents...

Based on my quick online price comparison, it looks like it would likely increase the bottom line by about $150...

...for reverse, a bit more power, and a bit less weight.

I'm a big Nils fan, but crossing the $500 mark would shut down sales IMHO. Especially this day in age.
