 >  > Nils USA Power Augers

The Nils USA Power Augers combine powerful and smooth running Tanaka engines with heavy duty augers and chromium steel cutting heads to create one of the fastest cutting and most reliable lightweight augers on the market today. The drive comes from a 1.35 HP, 27 cc Tanaka engine. These engines are know for long lasting performance, easy start up and power. These engines have gear ratios of 24:1, boast tough die cast transmissions and have 22.7 ounce fuel tanks. The Nils USA Power Augers are also easy and comfortable to use featuring comfort grip handles and a low vibration design.

The steel auger shafts are powder coated to reduce ice build-up and resist dings and scratches from use. The unique cutting head features a strong one-piece design with curved cutters for fast, efficient drilling. The cutting head is constructed of high content chromium steel which hold a superior edge when compared to other auger blades. The auger and cutting head will cut up to 47" of ice.
