Full Product Details

Nils USA Cordless Drill Augers feature a chromium steel cutting head that will outlast most of its competitors by staying sharper for many more fishing trips. This design offers a stronger overall cutting surface, while the curved blades quickly cut through the thickest ice with little to no downward pressure applied. These augers work great with your 1/2 inch cordless drill, low-speed or high-torque settings are recommended. Transport is a breeze, just pack your auger and cordless drill and you're on your way to the lake.

All models come with an optional hand auger handle which gives you the option of hand drilling through thinner ice or around shy fish. These also come with a plastic cutting head cover to protect the blades from damage and to protect users from the blades. Nils USA Cordless Drill Augers are power-coated orange with black cutting heads.

Impressed 
Pros: Everything is positive
Best Uses: Ice fishing
Comments: Ordered 2 weeks ago and finally got to use it today. Bought it cause my old gas auger leaks a little and I was just looking for something different. I’m am impressed. Paired with my brushless Milwaukee hammer drill(5amp/hr lithium ion batt) and it went thru 14” of ice just as good if not better than my gas auger. Only drilled 15-20 holes but could have drilled 100 easy

Terrible first outing 
Cons: Poor Performer
Comments: Sending this unit back. Bought the 8" and put it on my 20V brushless drill and it cut poorly at best. Took forever on 4" of ice.. My old Jiffy cut better, albeit I lost that one down the hole. UGH. Sorry, can't recommend.

Quality product 
Pros: super sharp blades, fast cuttting, quality construction
Cons: None I have found
Best Uses: Ice fishing
Comments: I paired my new Nils 4" with a Dewalt 20V drill. It has exceded my expectations! I can cut over 100 holes through 10" of ice with one battery. The ice is getting thicker now and I cut 50 holes yesterday through 14" of ice. The Nils auger blades are super sharp and the design allows for a fast cut. Everything about this auger says quality, solid construction. I'm in the process of ordering a 6" so I can catch even bigger fish!

This sounds great. Saw another brand in action, however the thing kept slipping in the chuck. Does this auger have 3 flat surfaces that go into the drill or is it round?

The bits on these augers are 3-sided but in more of a cloverleaf shape rather than a flat triangular shape, which should provide excellent grip in a drill's chuck.

Is the round piece at the top of the auger a guard against it falling through the hole? Are they still on back order?

Yes, the disk is to prevent the auger from falling through.

Now that I have a cordless drill auger that cuts a 4/1/2" hole I need a 4 inch Scooper/Dipper. Do you stock them? If so I couldn't find them on your site no size listed.

We do offer the Frabill Ice Dipper. This a plastic ice scoop that is 4.5 to 5 inches and flexes when scooping smaller holes. We will be stocking more ice scoops within the next month once we receive our ice fishing orders.
