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.
