Dirt and your auger blades

Recommended Posts

Yesterday we fished a small farm pond in SE MN. While drilling some holes (with a power auger) I noticed some dirt flying up. We were in about 10-13ft of water so I knew I wasn't drilling into the bottom of the pond. I picked some of it up and it was really clammy/muddy stuff once it unfroze.

Can this dirt have a negative effect on your blades?

Appreciate any help on this!

Thanks

You bet. It can dull them quickly if you are using a lazer auger. Not so quickly with a chipper, but never-the-less dull them too.

It sure can. Take a look next time you drive by a lake that is on a dirt road. The dirt/dust that got blown on that ice by passing cars is like sand paper on the blades. Can really dull them in a hurry.
