i just got a ice castle and thinkimg about getting an auger i am debating between a four stroke or electric. four stroke i think would have less fumes than my 2 stroke but heard that an electric is ideal for wheel houses. i have never used either nor been with anyone who has one. sugestions are GREATLY appreciated i wanna buy one soon. thanks in advance! ice cracking confused smiley

I ran Jiffy's propane auger last year and can say that when I started using it I didnt have high hopes. I can now say it is one of the best augers I have run in the last ten years. This year I have Jiffys gas 4 stroke to try for the season and cant wait for ice! I would pick the propane over the electric any day of the week. Fumes will be no problem and it will work well in your ice castle. I still have issues with electric augers and what can happen if something goes wrong. Electricity is my life line out in a drop down ice house. Hope this helps! wink smiley
