Fishing Gear: StrikeMaster Lithium 24v Auger

StrikeMaster Lithium 24v Ice Auger

Description and Application: There are three components to the new StrikeMaster ice auger: the powerhead/motor, battery and Lite-Flite Lazer drill unit. The motor features an electric DC brushless motor, a planetary gear system, 50:1 gear ratio, power button with deadman safety switch and forward and reverse. The battery is a 24v 4-amp hour lithium ION battery, three LED status lights, 2-amp charging station that recharges the battery in 2 hours.

The bit features a proprietary synthetic resin molded flighting making the entire package incredibly light. There are also twin serrated stainless steel Lazer blades, reinforced “T” connection to carriage with heavy-duty steel hex shaft. Comes standard with a limited 2-year manufacturer’s warranty on motor, battery and changer.

Staff Perspective: On a single charge, the 24v auger will drill 100 6-inch holes in 16 inches or less of ice, and 50 8-inch holes in 16 inches of ice or less. That’s a lot of holes. I’ve used this drill extensively this season and I’ve exceeded that number of holes a couple of times. I love how lightweight it is, I love how there’s no carburetor and no exhaust. Most of all, it’s sharp and easy to maneuver. The days of gas-powered augers are a thing of the past.—TA

Cost: $379.99-$399.99
