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.

    • Odd, looks like home made brackets on the ends?  May be they had them for some kind of tarp outside?
    • Just picked up a 1978 Bethany compact 560. Got it set up but I can't figure out what these 2 adjustable poles are for.  Anyone know? 
    • friend good luck to you and your wife!!!!   I do know where you are at....  my prayers to ya............
    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence?
