Works great!

by Nick LaFleur

Got this 2 winters ago and have been out ice fishing every weekend that we have had safe ice in Michigan. Anywhere from 5-24 inches of ice and I've only gone through 2 propane tanks. I'm sure I've put a few hundred holes on each tank. It's much quieter than gas auger and starts first or second pull every time. I have no idea why someone would buy a gas auger.

Another great product from Eskimo

by MI Outdoorsman

I purchased the HC40 10" because I am not ready to believe than any electric auger will keep up with a gas / propane auger for long term use and I was tired of gasoline smell in my truck. This thing is amazing! 12" of ice is basically a warm up for this beast! 0 degree weather (and lower) and it always starts on the second or third pull! Even after being left in the truck for nearly a week straight. This auger never stops surprising me.
