Top Electric Ice Augers

If you like pistons, horsepower, and the unmistakable smell of two-stroke exhaust hanging in the icy air, there's something supremely satisfying about firing up a gas auger to punch portals into the underwater world, but the Electric Ice Augersever-swelling ranks of electric ice augers offer advantages, too. Their fume-free operation of these electric augers is perfect for indoor drilling, while advancements in power and efficiency are giving gas augers a run for their money on the open ice as well. Electrics are quiet, too, making them perfect for stealth mode. This can be a huge factor at first ice, or anytime you're targeting skittish fish, particularly in shallow water.


Not having to tote a gas can around or mess with mixing oil is nice, too. But perhaps best of all, you never wear your arm out trying to start one on a sub-zero morning, since Reddy Kilowatt is always raring to go. Along with that, there's no warm-up period while you play with the choke until the engine wakes up. To help you sort through the options in battery-powered drills, we assembled a stellar lineup of electrifying options ready for hard-water action this winter.
