Do they work. I saw a craigs list add for some 12v models. Would that run off of a car battery?

I have used a couple and in my experience they are lacking the torque that you would want.. I'm not saying they don't work but they definitely aren't as nice. If your drilling out smaller holes like 6 inches those portable drill attachments are awesome. I've never used one for big holes but for the smaller holes they're awesome.

Pike Lover I have an electric auger 8" and love it, but it does have it's place. I have the auger with the battery mounted inside of auger head. It uses a typical 12volt vexilar battery. It is great for early ice. It is a lot lighter than your gas auger and it ALWAYS starts. When you start getting 18+ inches of ice than it starts wearing down fast. I probably can get 10 holes out of a battery, than I have to change it out or hook it directly to a marine battery. That can be a pain in the butt and timely when the fish are biting.

Since I no longer have a permanent house on Mille Lacs I'm thinking of buying a gas auger to work with the electric.

good luck

As said above, electrics have their place and time.BUT, can be used all season long. they are slower than a gas auger but not as noisy and no gas/oil to mess with,and yes they can be hooked to a car/marine battery,for inside as well as out side use. They can also be hooked up to snowmobile/atv's also.If interested there is one in the 4sale adds.


BE GOOD BUT NOT SO GOOD YOU DON'T HAVE FUN
