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.

    • well factor in cost of living and its a wash
    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
    • What? This can't be. Aaron's the real car building brains of this show. Richard is just the clown. Together they made it work. Apart?
