I have the Model 30 Jiffy. The blades will cut even if you hit sand in the ice and so one. Nothing will stop a Jiffy.

It could fall off your truck going down the free way and nothing would go wrong with it.

One thing if you do get a Jiffy make sure if is the 3 h.p. you will be glad you did because the 3 hp chew through the ice like butter

As for the stealth blade I can imagine they are extremely fast. I have just the chipper and it is fast

I've used my model 30 Jiffy for footings for a retaining wall and she preformed well. You will always hear people complain about Jiffys being cold blooded and that can be true but if you or someone tunes it right you'll fall in love. Never had any issues with ice.

I just got the first full season on my STX 3HP and loved it. No issues with cold blood here, first or second pull everytime, unless I forget to turn it on ;)Never iced up once.

I get noticeable ice up on my model 30, but that doesn't have the Deicer armor. A buddy of mine has the 2hp STX Pro with de-icer armor and his works better than mine. Also, we raced them multiple times and they ran through the ice in about the same time with the 2 hp being quieter and lighter.

Smeese nice to see I'm not the only one who forgets to turn the auger on. It takes me 2 AAARRRGHs before I realize its not on.

I never had any trouble with my de-icer armor on my Stx Pro but I added a coat of teflon and never have any problems with the flighting icing up.

2 hp 8" stx, no problems with icing, blades, starting, or power. Pretty much no complaints period...

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
