Summer-izing A Propane Auger

Recommended Posts

I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.


Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ.


Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.

 When out for the last time of the season yesterday on that Lake Superior ice. Today, it’s a hard northwest/ west wind so I wonder what the ice is doing out there now? I caught nothing but I put away all my icefishing stuff today and now it’s time to bring on the open water season


All I did to my auger was take the propane tank off and put a little Vaseline on the threads. I looked at the oil and it’s a real funky color. It never got wet. Is that normal for a propane auger?
