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.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
