Another great product from Eskimo
Pros: No Gasoline Smell, Light Weight for a ten inch auger, easy starting even when VERY cold, Powerful, Reliable
Cons: None
Best Uses: initial drilling and redrilling of ice holes
Comments: 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.

Works great!
Comments: 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.

How long will one tank of propane last? About how many 2 foot holes can be drilled on one tank?

I've taken this to Canada several times and have had to drill through 2-2.5 ft all day long. I'm talking 40-50 holes with no problems and on the same tank. I have to replace the tank typically once during the week of fishing, maybe twice. Very reasonable in my opinion.

I fish a lot. A tank will last you a long time. Even drilling lots of holes for tip ups. You could never burn a whole tank in any day of fishing. They barley use any fuel.
