Recommended Posts

I have been reading that the lazer hand auger from strikemaster, can redrill frozen holes, does anyone have one, and are they as good as they say.???

I've never used a Lazer hand auger, but if the blades are similar to the ones on my power auger, it should cut real slick! I've cut refrozen holes with my lazer power auger and it works fine. I'm not sure if its the 'powerpoint' or the shaving blades that make it suitable for cutting a refrozen hole.

I have an eight inch laser. I think it works fine opening old holes. Beats using a Mora. Never was happy with them.

Some of those hand augers really cut through the ice fast. The Lazer is a nice auger. Cuts like butter. smile.gif

Good Fishin,

I use a 6" lazer for early ice when I have walk out. (A lot less weight than a power auger.) It works great.

The Lazer is a pretty good hand auger. My buddy has a 7 inch and it cut's very nice. So I thought I would get an 8 inch. I should have gotten the 7 inch, it cut's much easier!

A friend of mine bought a six inch lazer(a black one).It cuts thruogh ice like a hot knife through butter.Funny thing is whenever he hears a gas auger fire up near us he quick grabs his lazer and races the gas auger.Most of the time he beats them.It can go through 10" of ice in somewhere around 15 cranks.I think the 8" would be a little bit longer cranking.It also re-cuts old holes very nice.

I've got the 6 and 8 inch lazer hand augers and they have both worked fine for opening old holes. I've used my 6" for 7 years now and it does what the others say "hot knife through butter". Either auger is great for early ice.
The 8" is nice for pike fishing but later in the season it's not my first choice when I run and gun for them panfish. I still carry it as a back up for the power auger.

I've got a Lazer and I always get the sticking at the bottom. Is that an often occurance with hand augers? I dunno. This past winter was my first ice-fishing experience.

Get the one with the off set handle...it will cut a lot faster, you must request this thru strike master...no extra charge

    • I think he's saying for the plow operator!!!  LOL!!!  yes it would help ya until ya wake up!!!
    • Agreed that will help calm my nerves when I see a big pile of snow pushed up in my yard, but I was looking to stop it from happening.
    • I thought they were all 4-cycle.  The ones I saw so fare were.  
    • Have you changed anything from your first attempt on venison bacon
    • A pic of the creek where we hunt, my deer, son in laws deer. Blended all 3 to 1. Ended up kinda neat for us. 
    • I have used a Toro single stage for about 10 years now. I was very skeptical until I helped a friend with snow removal. I won't ever go back to a 2 stage. Mine is a 2 stroke but I've seen the 4 stroke Toros in action and they seem just as good. There have been a couple times of heavy snow fall where I had to do the driveway in the middle of a storm and again at the end and also times of breaking up the plow ridge at the end but the pros far outweigh the cons. I like that it folds up like a lawnmower. When I get the mower out in the spring the blower goes under the shelf. No more big bulky blower in the way all the time and the rubber paddles clean right down to the cement. It's light enough to throw in the pickup and if you lift on the handles it'll propel itself if the snow isn't super deep. Go for the single. You won't regret it. 
    • The best snow thrower I’ve used is the one that uses your arms and a shovel😂 No blower or plow for me I can have the driveway done in the same amount of time if not a hair faster than a blower and, we’ve got a pretty decent sized driveway to, We get a good pile at the end from the grader that plows the township roads. I have wanted to mount a plow on one of the wheelers to plow the road as our township is extremely cheap and there must be Minimum 3-4 inches to plow. Anyway single stages are better for smaller drive ways and less snow. Personally I’d never by a single stage as you get a decent snow load and it may get frustrating or that pile at the end from the plow. But being you have a 2 stage as well it shouldn’t be an issue. Finding a good heavy duty rig with a good engine is key. Toro makes a good blower as well as huqvarna IMO. Im not sure if  huqvarna evenmakes smaller blower though.
    • I wouldn't get the Honda 4-Cycle Single Stage.  We have one at work and they are gutless wonders.  We also have the Toro 2 cycle single stage and that has a lot more balls!  IMO.  😉
    • A good bottle of bourbon or case of beer might make a difference.....
    • Great feedback.  I guess I will go with the single stage.  Just wish I had a solution for keeping the plow driver from pushing our entire culdesac's snow onto my lawn.
