I would love to check that out, but I'm going to Winnie with the gang. StrikeMaster Lazer mag Xpress was the 2003 champ in the stock 2 hp division I hope they can go for a repeat.

The World Ice Auger Competitions were held in near Nisswa, Minnesota this weekend, sponsored by Strikemaster Augers. The manufacturers present were Nils Master and Strikemaster. Augers that competed there were:

2 Jiffys, 1 Eskimo, 3 Nills Master, 1 “1972” Kluge, and approximately a dozen Strikemasters.

The handauger competition was interesting. The results, of course, were somewhat dependant on the contestant's experience and strength. 2 holes had to be drilled back to back back through 20" of ice. Strikemaster won the hand auger competition with Nils Master caming in a very close second. There was eight tenths of a second seperating first and second place. The Strikemaster had a cut time of 19 seconds and the Nils Master a cut time of 19.8 seconds. Those were the only two brands of hand augers in the competition.

The power auger competition had 4 divisions; Stock Women’s, Stock Men’s, Vintage, and Modified.
The women’s division featured only Strikemaster augers furnished by Strikemaster. There were no competing brands.

The men’s stock competition was a little heated. There were a few 'personal'augers entered, several Strikemaster Lazers Expresses, a Jiffy Model 30 and a Stealth, a 1972 Kluge, and an Eskimo Shark.

In a segment of the competition the Nils Master and Strikemaster augers were both right out the box and followed manufacturer's recommendations for fuel and oil mixtures. Nils Master was the fastest in head to head competition with factory warranty approved oil mixtures and types, and factory recommended fuels.

Strikemaster won overall head to head competition with the Nils Master, entering an auger fueled with 98 Octane gas mixed at 75:1 with synthetic oil. The factory warranty recommendation is 24:1 with 93 Octane or lower. Nils Master competed with factory recommended 93 Octane fuel mixed at factory recommended ratios. A Nils Master representative questioned the fuel/oil use by the competition, but the judges disallowed the protest.

The Final Standings were as follows: 1st Strikemaster, 2nd Nils Master, 3rd “1972” Kluge, and 4th Nils Master.

As far as the modified augers go, WOW!!!!!! Those guys were crazy. Huge Chain saw engines were connected directly to the augers. The drill units must have been spinning 20,000 rpms. If the guy who was operating the auger happened to slip, there was a tether kill switch. Very dangerous!!! When it was done, the fastest time for three holes back to back in 20” of ice was 8.6 seconds. That was FAST!!!!!!

I had a great trip with Zach and met some new people from Minnesota. Wisconsin folks live for Ice festivals and Parties on the ice, but celebrate a bit more than our Minnesota counterparts.

With all the people on the ice, I think I only saw 1 guy with a beer!

Thanks to Zach for the technical backup and filming!
