Strikemaster Power drill unit adapter for cordless drills

Recommended Posts

anyone use a milwaukee m18 with the strikemaster adapter on a 8" chipper unit? I just realized I had a 8" chipper unit at my parents house that hasnt been used in years. I figured I could slap a new blade on it and purchase a milwaukee drill to use mostly for the ice house

Haven’t heard many that use a drill on a chipper blade. Chipper blades take a lot more torque than lazer style smooth blades

Haven't tried that. If you do, be sure to figure out a way to stop the auger from falling through the hole if the drill slips off the bit. I have a Nils, and it has a flange at the top that is wider than the blade so it can't fall down the hole. And the K-Drill floats I believe.  Slipping off the bit isn't a regular occurrence, but you won't want to lose your auger when it does.

@rl_sd is correct, 8" chipper blade too much torque for m18. It works OK up to 10" of ice. 6" works OK to about 20" ice. I use my Eskimo 43cc with a flexible exhaust inside my Wheel House. 25' sells for $35 on-line. My DIY 8" chipper does 30" ice in 26 seconds. Only way to go.

hmm, ok, I did confirm with SM and they said the bit itself isnt made to take that much torque; sounds like i would be better off trying to sell the gas auger this fall and going to an electric one
