Electric Auger Choice?

Recommended Posts

OK fellas and of course you gals too. Which electric would you buy. The strikemaster has a self contained battery and sells for 350.00. The Jiffy does not have a self contained battery and sells for 260.00. Which auger is built better, and performs the best. Opinons please...

last yea i bought the strike master elc. auger
I took it back..was a batt. hog.

It took longer to drill a hole with that then it did by hand..

This year i bought a 2 hp strike master and bout a new thing that strike master has...A hose for the muffler...its a mounting bracket that bolts onto the muffler with a hose that clamps on..(kinda like a vacume hose)

look's like it will work very well..
I bought it from thorne bro's in the cities

they have a web site or you can call them
talk to pat smith as he orderd it in for me and im sure he will send one up to yea..
it cost me about $30.00.
cya on the ice soon

Thanks for the heads up Daveo. Just ordered the clamp and hose from Strikemaster. I just picked up a 2hp mag lazer xpress.Sounds like a great idea as I really was not wanting to spend a bunch more money on a electric....

Sounds like a great alternative for those looking at electric. Still have the power of gas with no fumes in the fish house.

The 2 H.P. StrikeMaster's are very tough to beat. They are super light weight with plenty of power to make quick work of the thickest ice. The best in the market for weight vs. cutting power. The 3 blade version (Ultra) is even faster.

    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us. 
    • Who all uses this system? Do you raise and lower your house with a drill.   I was looking at picking up the 2 speed winchs for both axles and the hitch winch.   Are they worth the money??
    • Great showing by the team last night! It was exciting to see the effort level way up and the new guys seem to plug into their roles well. Much more excited for the rest of the season!
    • I run 6lb on two rods and 4lb on two. I like the (possibly imagined) extra feel on the 4lb for light bites. I run swivels on my rods too, unless there's a very finicky bite
