Eskimo Barracuda/Shark-Jiffy Stealth

Recommended Posts

I went out tonight to try out my new stealth. I was very pleased with it's performance. Just like Jiffy claims the stealth blades help to pull the auger through the ice. I didn't have to apply any pressure to the handles at all. I don't know what it would take for me to switch to Strikemaster, probably being given one. I have always used Jiffy 10" drills and it looks like I will be very satisfied with the new one. So those of you looking for a new auger check the stealths out.

Cool to know. My Barracuda cuts like mad too and it's light as can be. Good to have an auger that won't wear you out.

Any auger out of the box with factory sharpened blades better pull you through the ice, regardless of the brand. If it doesn't, return it. Strikemaster, Jiffy, Eskimo, they're all good units. Cut with what you have and enjoy what you cut. grin.gif

Thanks for the help but I have used plenty of augers and had several new sets of blades and none of them cut as easily as this stealth. Most augers you still have to apply some pressure to even with new blades. With this one all I had to do was hold the handles. Look at the stealth if you are in the market. Weight for me isn't a big issue. So if you like 8" good I don't I feel like I am fishing in a coffee cup. I like 10" augers and every 10" is heavy it doesn't matter which one you go with. Just thought that I would let you know that the 10" Stealth is the one for me. Glad you all like your machine good.

You are correct, I have the Eskimo Mako and that auger cuts through the ice like there is no tomarrow. Had a Jiffy but the blades got dull to fast got tired of changing blades. Very happy with the Eskimo.

    • 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? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
