Nils USA Cordless Drill Augers feature a chromium steel cutting head that will outlast most of its competitors by staying sharper for many more fishing trips. This design offers a stronger over all cutting surface, while the curved blades quickly cut through the thickest ice with little to no downward pressure applied. These augers work great with your cordless drill - low-speed or high-torque settings are recommended. Transport is a breeze - just pack your auger and cordless drill and you're on your way to the lake.
All models come with an optional hand auger handle which gives you the option of hand drilling through thinner ice or around spooky fish. These also come with a plastic cutting head cover to protect the blades from damage and to protect users from the blades.

Light weight and drills unbelievably easy. Great for early ice when you want to get out on thin ice and you have to travel light.
Also is great on wilderness lakes where motorized anything is prohibited.
I paired my new Nils 4" with a Dewalt 20V drill. It has exceded my expectations! I can cut over 100 holes through 10" of ice with one battery. The ice is getting thicker now and I cut 50 holes yesterday through 14" of ice. The Nils auger blades are super sharp and the design allows for a fast cut. Everything about this auger says quality, solid construction.
I'm in the process of ordering a 6" so I can catch even bigger fish!
