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.

    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
