Drilling in house

Recommended Posts

I just bought a new house on wheels,when I drop the house it moves about 6 inches,So is there some way I can catch the ice from my 12 volt auger so it will not pile up on my carpet.

We usually mark the holes with our auger (just a couple turns will do) then move the house of, drill, clean and move it back. that's the best we've figured out. We use gas augers so this method also help with the auger exhaust. You obviously don't have that with your 12v.

If it fits in your holes, cut the bottom out of a 5 gallon pail. You should be able to set it in the hole and run her wide open!

I have a 6x12 house on wheels what I do is leave the house hooked to the truck dont take it off the ball. Drill all your holes out then drop the house down no snow on the floor. Bob

Ok didnt understand why it moved, only six inches can you move the house back six inches after you drill, by hand or is it too big. One other thing I have done take cardboard with make a cone in the hole then drill most all the snow will stay down the hole not on your floor. I hate a wet floor nice and dry is best. Good Luck Bob

the problem is,the house sits on the ice when holes are drilled,they must make some kind of plastic thing that can catch the ice and get rid of it outside,my house is 7 by 20 thanks again Bob

Then why don't you lay some plastic on the floor, then you can carry it out when you are done. On my house I let it down most of the way then mark the holes. Then move the house and drill. they come out pretty close.
