The StrikeMaster LiteFlite Lazer 40V Ice Auger drills holes cleanly and quickly. Watch the video to see this lightweight auger in action.
Lightweight but durable, the StrikeMaster Lite-Flite LazerTM Drill Unit Ice Auger drills holes quickly to get you fishing faster. This cordless auger can be powered by an electric power drill or a StrikeMaster ice auger powerhead for greater versatility. The full-length, synthetic flighting reduces the weight of the drill auger, while the molded blade attachment provides the optimal cutting angle without the need for readjustments. For strength and durability, this StrikeMaster ice auger features a heavy-duty steel hex shaft and reinforced "T" connection to the carriage. A unique Power Point drill tip keeps the drill in place for smoother, more consistent drilling. The serrated stainless steel LazerTM auger blades provide a smooth, clean-cut for optimal ice hole shape and size. For an easy-to-transport but highly efficient ice auger, try the StrikeMaster Lite-Flite LazerTM Drill Unit.
I've used my auger multiple times and drilled around 60 holes thru about 16" of ice. It works fantastic. It does take the right drill with enough power to work properly. I had to grind the small ridge off the top of the adapter to get it to fit in the chuck of my Milwaukee drill properly. After that I'm ready to sell my gas auger
Mine came with the original bit attachment that was causing the wobble. Strike master was quick to respond and provided the new style bit free of charge. Absolutely love the lite flite! No more heavy gas auger to lug around. Recently drilled 19 holes in ice 30+ inches thick with the dewalt 1/2” drill and 5amp battery pack. Great investment in my ice fishing arsenal of equipment. Now everyone wants to drill holes :)
This auger cuts amazingly fast, paired with my Milwaukee Drill I get over 50 holes with a 5ah battery, and 80+ with the 8ah. CHECK PERIODICALLY THAT YOUR BLADE BOLTS ARE TIGHT. Mine came loose and as a result, snapped the entire plastic housing for where the blade mounts to. Thanks to strike masters amazing customer service, I brought it in and they replaced it in minutes. They said if you're out drilling 100's of holes a day, just keep an eye on the bolts every now and then and make sure they are tight. Have owned Strikemaster augers for 20+ years, I'll never switch.
I had been keeping my eye on this arrangement : a light weight auger driven by a cordless drill. I was very skeptical. Fast forward the past year. I have now sold both my gas powered augers and replaced with two electric and I just love it. I am 70 and have stage IV cancer so I needed to cut weight from my sled. Done! Excellent
Only reason for the 4 star is the unit kept loosening until I put lock tight on the threads and all problems solved. Love the weight versus a gas auger. Paired it with a DeWalt dcd996 drill. Drilled 46 holes today with a 5 ah battery and only used one light on the battery fuel tank. I would recommend to anyone looking for a light weight drill.
Well let's see, it is super Lite. Haven't tested it yet, but watched the YouTube video with the 3 idiots on the ice with 3 different augers at Scheels. https://youtu.be/dnNUjlFjAp8 My biggest concern was to be able to use my Clam Plate. Salesman's Service was 5 stars, he went above and beyond opened a box and got some allen wrenches out. We figured out that the Clam Plate will work on this auger. All you need is the K-Drill adapter, you do not need to use the adapter that comes with the auger. Now I have the Lite Flite connected to my Clam Plate.
