Full Product Details

Ice Master Ice Auger/Power Drill Conversion Kits make converting your hand auger into a power that is as easy as inserting a drill bit into your drill! The affordable Ice Master adapters turn your existing power drill and ice auger into a easy-to-configure power auger! These Adapters will work with any cordless power drill, but 18.0 volt or higher drills are recommended. The Adapter fits 1/2 drill chucks.

The Ice Master features the exclusive Adapter Retainer. This feature protects the auger from falling through the ice (to the bottom of the lake) if the chuck comes loose. In addition, it takes the stress off the drill chuck from the weight of the auger.

  • StrikeMaster/Eskimo Adapter - works with StrikeMaster Mora and Lazer hand augers, and Eskimo Standard and Barracuda hand augers. Please note that newer model Eskimo hand augers may require the pin hole of the Ice Master unit to be enlarged. Two-piece kit.
  • Nils USA Adapter - works with Nils USA hand augers. This three-piece kit includes a large nut and bolt for use with this make of auger only.

Ice Master Ice Auger/Power Drill Conversion Kits are made in the U.S.A.

This is the best attachment for using a drill with chuck 
Pros: Durable, compact, Lightweight
Best Uses: ice fishing
Comments: The Ice Master auger adapter is the best I've found for directly attaching hand ice augers to chucked brushless hand drills. I've tried others and they have twisted apart under the torque involved.

Pros: Perfect fit
Comments: Couldn't wait to get this product in the mail. It came earlier than it was supposed to and it fit like a glove on my Mora. Screws right on and works like a champ. I bought the black adapter. No more sore arms / shoulders for me. Thanks.

Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: I bought this in January 2016 and used with Strikemaster Mora 8" & DEWALT Model # DCD771C2 $129 combo and Lazer 5" & RIDGID Model # R86116K $179 combo. For the drill, you must have the drill with auxiliary handle, don't use drills without auxiliary handle. Strikemaster Mora 8" & DEWALT Model # DCD771C2 $129 combo did the job, but I wasn't satisfied with 11" ice. Lazer 5" & RIDGID Model # R86116K $179 combo is the best so far. I punched 34 Holes - 11" ice with one battery (comes with 2 batteries and has lifetime warranty) and one hole took about 10 seconds. And, better customer service too. After a few ice fishing trips, the bungee code fastener came off. So, I used without it. But, I was too worried that I might drop the auger into the hole. Therefore, I contacted info@icemasteradapter.com and David sent me the brand new replacement part. The customer service is really good.

Works as designed
Pros: Simple design, well made, fits my auger, innovative auger retention system
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: I bought this to use when fishing on a nearby lake where gas augers are not permitted. Typically, I like to quickly get several holes drilled for the kids so that they have something to keep them occupied while I get the shelter set up etc. I use it with an 18V DeWalt NiCad drill. What I found was this: On cooler days (-15 to -25 degrees Celsius) I have extremely poor performance with my batteries. Lithium ion batteries would perform better. If I could somehow keep the packs warm, this would likely help too. I am using an 8" auger (we have BIG fish up here). Surprisingly, it works. However, because of the cold-weather limitation of my drill batteries, I'll be lucky to get one hole out of a battery charge. Also, this is drilling through over two and-a-half feet of ice. One of the keys is keeping my blades sharp, and letting the auger do the work. Overall, a great product. I'm looking forward to using it with a beefier drill when my current drill gives up the ghost!

HANDY PRODUCT 
Pros: Fits like a glove, Easy to use
Best Uses:
Comments: The product itself works great so as far as the rating goes it gets a 5 fish/star rating. Matched up to my auger beautifully. I skimped on the auger and it tended to wallow a hole rather than cut a nice clean one which I could do better by hand. Going slow and not putting too much pressure is definitely the way to go as others have advised as well. I've seen several others try to mimic this product with homemade versions and it causes a lot of grief. Spend the $25 bucks and you won't have to worry about it, especially when it's cold and sometimes uncomfortable on the ice. Just one less thing to deal with.

Excellent auger adapter 
Pros: Lightweight
Cons:
Best Uses:
Comments: This auger adapter is well made and seems very true in alignment when drilling. It has a well thought out safety device if your auger should slip out of drill chuck. Some others have a metal rod or metal disc which rotates with auger. It might cause one a injury

great product 
Pros: all of the above
Best Uses:
Comments: I ordered on Wednesday had it in time to fish on sat. Thanks Fish U.S.A. for the prompt delivery. The product worked flawlessly. I have a 6 inch Laser auger drilled about twenty holes in eighteen inches of ice and still had plenty of power for more. Two batteries 18 volt lithium Hitachi gun. Seen other ideas of this and this is by far the best (bungee strap is a good idea. Read other reviews only complaints I read were people when apparently did not read or don't know how to follow instructions. First dealings with Fish U.S.A. very happy. Somewhere in Michigan

Pros: Works great every time, easy to carry
Best Uses:
Comments: This product eliminates a whole lot of weight from the gear I take out on the ice. This year we have over 30 inches of ice with constant fluffy snow on top. Hauling a gas auger would not be fun. This adapter is simple and functional without any apparent downside.

A must have! 
Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
Cons: Poor Design

Comments: I have used nils augers for years now. This is just the ticket for my aging arms. A perfect fit for my drills. The only downfall is the drill guard should be bigger than the hole in case the auger comes loose from the drill.

Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Use
Cons: Need a powerful drill
Best Uses: DRILLING HOLES IN ICE
Comments: I used this for the first time this winter (late season) through about 20-26 inches of ice. It worked ok with a 20v drill, but I can only get about 5-7 holes out of each battery. I think it would be great for about 10-12 inches of ice, but late ice is a bit tough for it. Also, make sure your drill chuck is tight and your blades are sharp. Don't lean on the drill and try to make it go the same pace as you would a hand auger unless you have a pretty beastly drill. Overall a good buy!

more power! 
Pros: Functional
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: i bought this adaptor because i had a hand auger, but it seemed to take too long to drill holes by hand. I saw some videos on Youtube using cordless drills to cut holes in the ice, and this seemed like a good idea. I have an 18 volt cordless drill and a couple batteries. why not? The adaptor showed up in the mail. it wouldn't fit inside the auger. I took some sand paper, and sanded it til it fit in. the holes didn't line up, and i couldn't get the bolt in. so i drilled out the holes in the adaptor a tiny bit, and it fit perfectly. so, i took it to the lake the next weekend. connected my electric drill to the auger and started drilling. i was all smiles for the first 6 inches, but then the battery died. i put in the other battery, got another inch, and it died. i took off the adaptor, put the handle back on, and finished the day drilling holes by hand. the bottom line for me is this: The product worked fine! but i don't own a power drill strong enough to drive my 6 inch auger blade through 18 inches of ice. at that point, my choice was to go out and buy an expensive cordless power drill to drive my auger, or simply buy a gas powered auger. a local store was having a close-out sale on Eskimo power augers, and I picked one up for less than a new heavy-duty 24 volt cordless electric drill. I went fishing with 2 friends at an ice fishing derby. I cut about 30 holes over 2 days for the 3 of us in 18 inches of ice without any problems at all. If you already have a really powerful, heavy-duty 24 volt cordless drill and a couple batteries in good condition, i think this product is a great idea. but if you are planning on drilling lots of holes for you and friends in thick ice over several days, a gas-powered auger is probably the way to go.

Comments: Hey folks out there! Want a good light weight attachment for ice fishing (rather than a ice auger that uses Natual Resources such as OIL, get yourself one of this attachments for your 18V to 24V cordless drills)! Easy to use, I used it on a 18V Dewalt XRP drill "make sure you have a handle attachment to hold it on your drill", and I also used a lazer 6" auger I picked off [...] cheaP! Bring a couple of batteries, I figured 18 holes per battery at 15" holes.. Technology just keeps getting better for us "not-so'old" guys out there!

It zipped through 12" of ice with new blades on the auger.I didn't get a chance to see how many holes I could drill with one battery, but I would guess about a dozen.

Pros: Easy To Use

Product works but set realistic goals 
Pros: Easy To Use
Best Uses: Traveling, Fresh Water
Comments: I used this in Three Lakes WI this weekend 2/23/08. I have a 18v QuatroPro (Black & Decker) heavy duty drill with 2 batteries. It took basically one battery to drill through 15 inches of ice. So I basically drilled 2 holes. So is that good or bad? I would say the product does what it claims to, but set some realistic expectations. For me personally this will work great early in the season, I should be able to drill 4 holes that are 8 inches deep. As the season progresses I might have to start the holes manually and the finish them with the drill. Either way the limitation is the drill, not the product. If you can plug in a drill to a snowmobile or truck then its would work better.

Could be better 
Pros: Lightweight, Retainer strap
Cons: Wobbles poor machining
Best Uses: Hard water fishing
Comments: This product did not meet to my satisfaction due to a small wobble in the adapter. The machining to make flat spots in the rod (to hold it in the drill bit) is not precise, e.g. some of the flats are bigger than others or not cut at exact angles. The rod that goes into the bit is short and would probably work better if it was longer. I have a ½ inch drill and there is room for a longer bit. The adapter is short which makes it good for transporting but a longer adapter would allow for easier / dry drilling through thick ice. I do like the retainer strap that holds the adapter from falling through the ice and will continue to use this adapter for just this reason. I have also used other adapters that were longer but does not come with a device to prevent the auger and adapter to go through the ice. All and all I give the ice master a 3/5 stars.

I have an old 8" Jiffy that I'd like to adapt to a drill and not deal with gas anymore. My auger union is 22mm wide and about 24mm deep from top of hole to the center hole of the bolt that attaches the auger to the drill. The bolt is 10 mm wide. Will this fit my auger?

These only fit StrikeMaster, eskimo, and Nils. I do not have information on the auger you have. You would need to talk the manufacture to see if it would fit your auger.

I have an old strike master mora 6" auger. The handle is the old screw on type that I believe is 5/8-11 thread. Do these adapters screw on or do they pin on?
