Industry-first Hypercoil™

Recoil technology that reduces required pulling force by up to 62%—resulting in easier starts and reduced stress on your arms and shoulders

Industry-first aluminum handlebars

Eskimo’s aluminum handlebars are designed with 45 degree rubber-coated grips that allow ideal wrist motion when drilling a hole. The throttle control is canted in 45 degrees, allowing comfortable control of the throttle and the ability to easily pull the auger out of the ice without accidentally revving the engine

51cc Viper® 2-Cycle Engine

This cold-weather tested engine features a primer button for quick response starting and a high-profile ON/OFF toggle switch. A muffler guard protects you from hot areas, and a mitten-grip recoil allows you to start the engine while keeping your hands warm. A see-through gas tank allows you to easily track your fuel level.

Powered by Quantum™

The Quantum auger is ideal for re-drilling holes with its unique centering ring, and Quantum blades last longer than competitor blades and hold their edge in dirty ice

Precision transmission offers optimum gearing

Eskimo is the only ice auger line using sealed ball bearings instead of bushings

Blade protector extends the life of the blade (included)
