Nils Power Auger Recap

2 posts in this topic

Well with 12-14" of ice on our Duluth area lakes I decided it was time to break out the Nils for the rest of the season.

I quickly remembered why I purchased this ice cutting demond.

Being only 22 pounds and cutting through 41" of ice in 12.2 seconds it made very quick work of the 12" I was standing on.

The 48" shaft (also available in shorter 42" shaft) really helps save on my back being 6'6" tall. The 48" shaft model also cures the need for a extention but they are available.

The lightness of the auger takes the work out of drilling holes and I found myself helping others cut holes when their augers wouldnt cut or they had a hand auger. They all were amazed how fast the auger cut.

The Tenaka motor is a work horse and has a expected life of 600 hours verses 250 in other models.

New this year Nils has put in a bit more power and a locking gear case so clearing out those slush locked holes should be much easier.

If your looking for a new auger I highly recomend the Nils Power Augers. Take the work out of cutting your holes with the lightest, fastest 2 stroke auger out there.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
    • That a shot at me being former military?
    • All of you who wasted your votes can thank us later.  In four years you'll have another chance to earn your right to be critical of the POTUS.
