I bought a 6" Nils hand auger a couple years ago and I thought it was the greatest auger I have ever used. I still believe it cuts better than any one I have ever used. However I am having a problem with mine now. Whenever I cut a hole in freezing weather the ice freezes on the spirals. And it can be a lot. Anyone else have this problem and what have you done to prevent the ice from forming. I think my problem is due to the powder coating wearing off. Appreciate any feedback.

I've never tried it but you could try spraying lubricant on to prevent ice from sticking and building up. I've used a can of Pam cooking spray on snow shovels to prevent snow from sticking and it worked well.

I'd just use something that will keep pollution concerns to a minimum, thats why I suggested cooking spray, besides you probably already have some at home.

I don't think this is all that uncommon. Plenty of people complain about it. I would try pulling it out of the hole a couple times to relieve some of the shaving before you poke through into ice. If you miss that opportunity then roll your auger up and down a few times in the water before pulling out.

I wish you the best!
