First of all- read all the reviews. You'll get a sense for those that know how to use a motorized piece of equipment and those that should stick to hand augers. This unit starts quickly. In 15ยบ weather and 20kt. winds it started on the second or third pull on its first time out of the box. I propped it up against the Jeep as I unloaded at a new spot, it slid down the side of the Cherokee and hit the ground- twice (slow learner). After that abuse, I got to my spot and it started first pull. Its a great auger. The fuel cap is special- it has a rubber gasket and screw vent. You open the vent to use- you close when you're done. It will likely leak fuel and flood the carb if you don't close the vent when you sled it. The starter coil- if you don't give a full pull, it doesn't recoil. There isn't a problem with it- its so it doesn't rip the handle out of your hand. If this happens, grab the rope, slowly pull it all out, it will recoil back in. I usually go a little heavy on the 2-stroke oil for the first tank. New engines usually seat better and more lube is better than less in my opine. Blades are wicked sharp- my snowsuit was no match when I was taking off the plastic cover plate. Do not push down!! Let the machine do its job. It will rip through the ice fast at about 1/2 to 3/4 throttle. Never needed full throttle, its got power. I can say that this auger is so worth the money, I'm very happy. Take care of it, follow the manual and you'll be very satisfied. USE FRESH WINTER GAS- not from your weed-whacker!

The auger did not stand up to the elements. Since day 1 it leaked fuel like crazy and seemed to bog slightly in real cold conditions. Took into a small engine shop and they said something was wrong with the Carb and would cost over $100 to fix.

Pros: Lightweight, Easy To Use

Cons: Poor Design

I origionaly wanted a strikemaster, my dad was talking to a guy that had one and his brother had an eskimo, he said the eskimo would outdo the strikemaster any day. I got the Eskimo mako 10", it works awesome, starts first pull every time, the 2 blade is fast, even for a 10". The 43cc, 1.8 hp engine handles thick, hard ice no problem, plenty of power. Good on gas too, easily 150-200 holes per tank.

Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Great Design, Versatile
