Description

The Nils USA Replacement Auger Cutting Heads are designed to work with Nils USA Hand Augers and Power Augers. The Nils USA Replacement Auger Cutting Heads feature a one piece design instead of individual blades, offering a stronger over all cutting surface. The cutting heads are constructed of high chromium steel, which is more durable than other brands of auger blades and will stay sharper much longer. These cutting heads are powder coated in red, to help prevent corrosion.

We stock the Nils USA Replacement Auger Cutting Heads for Hand Augers in sizes 4.5", 6" and 8". We stock the Nils USA Replacement Auger Cutting Heads for Power Augers in size 8". The 8"/Power Auger Cutting Head features an integrated power point.

The cutting heads may be the standard red color or black. There is no difference in fit or function, just color. We will ship what is available.

Each Nils USA Replacement Auger Cutting Head includes a blade guard.

Nils Cutting Head Replacement
Verified
Buyer

About Me:

I bought it because I messed mine up by accidently cutting through some blown in sand, but I wanted to have an extra replacement anyways in case I need it. So if you fish where there is some dirt or sand mixed in with ice or where it's shallow and you can run into the bottom or a rock, it's probably not a good choice for you. I love my Nils auger though. I can drill three holes while my buddy is working on his first. I have to agree with other reviewers: you do have to baby it. The other issue I have is it's too complicated to sharpen. According to Nils USA customer service, you have to send it off to an authorized service and they gave me a couple of location that both were out of state so I'm guessing it will be pricey, hence a 4-star rating. Otherwise, a great product!
Pros: Easy to drill, easy to change out
Cons: Not very durable, Impossible to sharpen on your own

I ordered a Nils 4.5" hand auger last year, and was 100% satisfied with its performance...one of the few fishing products that lived up to the hype. But on my first trip this season, it wouldn't cut at all, despite no abuse of any kind during the off-season. I ordered a replacement of the cutting head and it arrived quickly. Replacing the heads was quick and easy, and the new head cuts like butter. I'd give it 5 stars, but am concerned that getting only 1 season out of a pricey cutter head might lead me to looking for another auger down the road.
Pros: cuts fast
Cons: durability

Have loved my nils auger since the day I bought it. I bought this replacement head for a backup while I ship out the original head for sharpening (five years old and still cuts better than anything I owned in the past and I have made tons of hole with it over the years!)
Pros: very sharp, easy to change out
Cons: none

I bought the replacement head as a spare for my 6" hand auger. As far as im concerned i can drill more holes and faster with my nils than someone with a power auger...plus its lightweight and folds up to fit in my hut.

Great replacement head for a great auger.  Piece of advice-baby it.  Before I knew how to handleaugers, I would toss it gently on the ice, not put cover on right away, not store it correctly, etc.  One little ding can throw the cutting efficiency off significantly.  Take care of it and it will last

Pros: Wicked fast

I bought this as a backup when the original head needs sharpening which is about every four years! Every time I'm out on the ice someone asks what brand of auger is that? It out cuts my power auger.

I use nothing but nils. All you have to do is cut one hole with a nils auger and you will be sold. I keep a spare blade at the house so when I ship one to get a new edge on it I can keep cutting. I fish tournaments with this auger and it never lets me down.

I fished this winter on lakes that had 30"+ of ice, and it took between 22 to 23 seconds to slice through it. It's an amazing auger, and it's nice to be stealth when everyone else is making noise on the lake.

now in my 56th year ice-fishing, i have tried many ice chisels,hand and power augers. i bought my 6" nils about 5 years ago and have never seen a faster hand auger. it has been so easy in ice up to 15" that i sold my old power auger last year.the only reason i bought a replacement head is that i stupidly drilled into a rocky bottom.
