Just got my New Nils Power head back on my Nils 8" auger shaft. Didnt need the power head until just recently. We now have over 2' of ice in spots. I cant say how much I love the Nils as a hand auger. Cuts through the ice like a hot knife threw butter. Now with the power head on its time to do some serious hole burning.

Surface Tension sharpened up my blades pre season and I cant say enough how good of a job he does.

Rock on Nils and Surface Tension.

It sure dose! We have around 31 inches on some lakes here in southern MN and I'll have three holes cut before my buddies will have their auger started.

I have the orange convertible and love it. So easy with the drill to cut through its sick. And maybe 1-1.5 minutes to cut through 30" inches of ice manually. After a season or two, the head will go to Frank for sharpening.

I'm not getting a lot of holes with one battery at these extreme thicknesses, but this is a pretty unusual year. And I have only 3-4" clearance before I hit the flange to prevent it from going down the hole. Again, far from normal to be this thick in north metro lakes.
