Summer-izing A Propane Auger

Recommended Posts

Wrapping up the ice fishing after tomorrow. I’ve never owned a propane auger before this one and the one I have was bought used. Any storage tips?

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.

I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet.

 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?
