Nils USA Hand Augers feature a one piece cutting head instead of individual blades. This design offers a stronger over all cutting surface. The cutting head is constructed of high chromium steel, which is more durable than other brands of auger blades and will stay sharper much longer. The curved blades quickly cut through the thickest ice with little to no downward pressure applied. These augers do all the work.
The Nils USA Hand Augers have cushion grip handles for cutting comfort. The offset handle design brings the drilling hand out, farther away from the center line of the auger increasing the torque going directly to the cutting head. This makes drilling holes much easier than with similar sized augers. The folding handle design makes transportation and storage a breeze.
All models come with a plastic cutting head cover to protect the blades from damage and to protect users from the blades.
