HC40 8" 40cc Propane Auger

Many ice anglers are switching to 4-cycle propane powered augers because they are clean burning and low maintenance. However, they are also known to be heavy and hard to handle, or lightweight and lack power. The Eskimo® HC40™ propane auger was designed from the ground up, creating an auger that is both lightweight and powerful. Instead of just adapting a gasoline engine to run on propane, the engineers at Eskimo designed the engine on the HC40 to take full advantage of the higher octane rating of propane fuel. The higher compression ratio creates more power out of a smaller package, which means the angler has a lighter weight auger with the power to quickly cut an eight inch hole. The powerful high compression engine will perform for years when paired with the all-metal, sealed, ball bearing transmission and fast cutting 2 blade Quantum™ augers. At only 32 lbs, the HC40 8” propane auger gives ice anglers the reliability and dependability they have come to expect from Eskimo in an extremely powerful, lightweight package.

16000 AUGER HAND 6 INCH CURVED SILVERTIP

The Eskimo® Silvertip™ Hand Auger takes the work out of pan fishing. The CNC ground curved blades put the cutting edge of the Silvertip in precisely the right position for easy and effective cutting. As a result, Silvertip augers tunnel through the ice, requiring minimal down force. Just turn the handle, and let this beautifully designed hand auger do the rest. The Silvertip blades are formed from a high carbon martensitic stainless steel used most often for knife blades. The hardness and wear resistance of the Silvertip blades are further enhanced by postforming heat treatment. All the work that we put into designing the new Silvertip auger results in less effort when you’re out on the ice.
