M43 Mako 8" 43cc Gas Auger

The Mako™ offers many of the features found on high-end augers, but in a more economical package. With Eskimo® Quantum™ Blades, the original cold-weather Viper® Engine, and features like a mitten-grip recoil, you’ll have a cost-effective, easy-to-use ice auger that you’ll come back to year after year.
SKU: M43Q8
  • Quantum™ Auger

The Mako M43Q8 features an 8” diameter Quantum™ auger bit, ideal for re-drilling holes with its unique centering ring and centering point that keeps the auger stable on uneven ice. Blades last longer and hold their edge in dirty ice. A blade protector also extends the life of your blades (included).

  • Precision Transmission

An all-metal, ball-bearing precision transmission offers optimum gearing.

  • 43cc 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.

  • Steel / Foam Handlebars

Foam grips cover the Mako’s wide-wing, tubular steel handlebars and absorb vibration, with a precision fingertip throttle trigger mounted on the side.

  • Quality Assurance

All Eskimo® power augers feature an industry-leading 5-Year Warranty.

* Ardisam warrants to the retail purchaser that this small, off-road engine was designed, built and equipped to conform at the time of initial sale to all applicable regulations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
