If you are a run-n-gun fisherman, simply put-you need a Pistol. The all new Eskimo Pistol Bit is the ultimate weapon to pair with your ½ inch, high-torque cordless drill if you want to be mobile and destroy the ice in a hurry! At just under 4 lbs., nothing will slow you down, as this unit was engineered to cut fast, cut smooth, and maximize the battery life of your cordless drill. Best of all, its lightweight, so it won't wear you out! Features:
Engineered Nylon/Polymer Flite: Keeps the unit lightweight while maintaining flexibility and impact resistance in cold temperatures
Hexagonal, aluminum inner stem shaft: Efficiently transfers power from drill to cutting head.
High-strength polymer cutting head: Reliable performance in all conditions. Aggressive design cuts through ice quickly and smoothly.
Bit-Saving Top Plate: Included polymer top plate is slightly wider than the auger flite so you can cut with confidence knowing that you won't lose your drill or auger down the hole.
Works incredibly well. That said in +24” ice it did bind just enough at times to cause the drill clutch to stop. No biggie, just pulled out, cleared some ice chips and it finished the whole every time (and that’s with one of the recommended drills). It is surprisingly light weight making it effortless to carry hole to hole.
With bad shoulders this is a great tool. Light and easy to use with a small drill. If the chuck loosens on the drill you don't loose the drill through the hole like I did with my hand auger. Had to use my under water camera and powerful magnet to retrieve it. It's a little longer so you don't need extensions for deep snow.
I bought this auger about 2 weeks ago. Finally used it yesterday and love it! I am currently using a lower power Dewalt than I should. I have a more powerful one shipping tomorrow but I drilled a few dozen holes and it was smooth and faster than those with other drills and gas without the mess..
