electric drill adaptors????

Recommended Posts

They work fine, but make sure you're using a good drill, 18v minumum. Those cheapies from discount tool sellers are no good. Also, make darn sure the chuck is good and tight or you'll end up fishing for the auger bit with a magnet or hook. Ask me how I know! grin.gif

I tried one of these a couple years ago. My experience was that they do work, but not that well. We used a 8" auger and it pretty much drained an 18V battery after a couple holes in roughly 14" of ice. I think I results would be much better with a 6" auger. One other thing, you mention an ELECTRIC DRILL. If you are in fact using an ELECTRIC DRILL with a generator you should be set.

I saw some fellows on Mille Lacs last weekend using one on a dewalt that looked to be a 18V but I was too far to tell.

They went through 30" of ice in far less time then I would have anticipated. It was really quite impressive. The best part is I didn't hear a thing.

I wished I could give you more info but I didn't venture over to investigate. I would imagine its like anything, you get what you pay for.

ShawnnyB had used his 18v drill early season with success. Then, the day came when the chuck loosened up and as the auger broke through, it dropped to the bottom in 15 FOW. The next day, I went out with him to retrieve the auger. We found the spot, drilled a few holes, and used a magnet on a pole with a rope attached to lift it up. NOT FUN! But, we got the auger back after 20 minutes or so.

This weekend, I may try using my Milwaukee V28 drill and see how it handles 24" of ice grin.gif

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
