Hi I'm looking to buy a new auger ( all i have owned have been used).
just can't seemed to make up my mind so i turned here looking for advice.
jiffy,eskimo,lazer mag, whick of these three would be the most reliable? i'm leaning towards a eskimo but don't know anyone tha owns one. what do you think? looking in the $300.00 price point.

My brother bought a new eskimo and had the pull rope pop off a couple of times. We had to take it apart and put it back togther to reattach the rope. Kind of a poor design and a pain, but once we modified it a bit, it seems to work okay. A real bummer when it happens out on the ice, though... mad smiley

I was just up at Strikemaster in Big Lake and found out that the motors in both Jiffy and Eskimo augars are made in China. They said they would not even touch either.I myself have a strikemater.

StrikeMasters Augers come with a German made motor...Solo...they have been making motors for 50 years. I've seen them running on the ice.Thr run at a much higher torque...you can go wrong with a strike Master.
