I got my new e-drill auger from Sportsmans guide on friday.It has a drill adapter bracket that locks it together and also an arm to hold with the other hand.My new Dewalt 20v drill fit real nice on it.Now I just need some ice-might have to go visit my cuz in MN.

When we finally do get fishable ice
RT, you are going to be very happy
Although I've not used the e-drill I've been
using 20 volt DeWalts since they came out
Coupled with a 5 amp battery they are
about perfect for use in our area
A couple of tips if I may,the amount of torque
they have can really put a hurt on you if they bind
I rarely find it necessary to cut at full speed
and at least start your hole slow to moderate
I also like to slide my hip up against my wrist
in case I do bind up my hip takes most of the
jolt and lastly as I near the bottom
of the hole I take downward pressure off
the drill and let it pull the last inch
or so on its own. I always lock the drill and cap it when done too.
Hope you can get out and do some ice trolling real soon !

Thanks Johnny for the tips.I think that side handle on it letting me use both hands will really help if it binds up, but I'll start up slow like you said.I'm hoping that bitter cold coming over the weekend sticks around.

I agree with bracing with knee/hip. Almost broke my wrist in Wisconsin 2 weeks ago when mine jammed. I’ve used all types of augers. A drill is Far and away the best way to drill an ice hole.

Used it today handled like a dream.Drilled about 20 holes and the recharge only took 15 minutes.I'll be putting my chipper lite 8" on swap and dough as soon as I test fire it.
