Eskimo Shark Z51

6 posts in this topic

A buddy at work is looking at replacing his older auger with an Eskimo Shark z51. I'm just helping him to see if anyone out there has had any good or bad experiences using this auger.

Thanks is advance for any replies.

I bought one last year and it works great. Fast cutting and really easy to start even on the coldest day.

I've had one now for the last 4 or 5 years. As stated before , starts great no matter how cold. The only 'bad' experience I've had has been one, pre-sunrise, VERY cold morning, I lost my grip on the pull rope handle, it smacked against the case and shattered. If the new ones aren't made of a pliable rubber, I'd suggest, at the very least, buy and carry a spare. I was lucky, there was still enough left that the rope didn't go back into the recoil, and I was still able to get it started so I could fish. Phred52

I've had the Mako for 3 seasons and it works great. The only problem I've had is with the location of the on/off switch. I commonly bump it to "off" accidentally while pull starting with big gloves/mittens. The new units I've seen have the switch relocated.

    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!
