Drill powered augers

I have the clam drill plate with the 6 inch auger paired with a dewalt dcd985 brushed motor. The deal I got on the drill was great in my opinion or otherwise I would have got the brushless model. I run the extension, because I am 6'4". Here is a photo of my set up without the extension.IMG_0071.JPG

I have fished with Rick G and his Milwaukee fuel and kdrill. Eyeguy and Rigid nils and Yes Rick can cut like crazy. For speed it's less than second a second difference for speed. The kdrill is lightest then the nils followed by my set up the clam drill plate is the difference. Through about 24 inches of ice I got 20 holes per 3 amp battery. I like the drill plate because of my disability it is something more to hang on plus it keeps the drill off the ice. For the people thinking of changing over it's the best thing ever. No more gas spilled on your hands no more gas leaking all over. Any of the options are a great choice.

I have the Dewalt 20v DCD996B with 6" Nils and it is fast. Still have not tried it on my 8" but I feel it will work just fine. I have started using the 18v to 20v adapter on most of my old tools so I now have more than enough 20v batteries.

I have the 6 inch K drill with the Milwaukee 18 volt brushless best thing since sliced bread. I have a bad pinched sciatica with the power auger constantly jerked and hurt now hardly any pain and cuts fast. WOW light that's the best thing and no gas, exhaust dripping on your car, clothes and fish house.

Really like that Dewalt came out with the 20V 6AH battery. Have not  picked one up but nice to know when and if the time comes. Way cheaper then the 20V/60V battery. It seems like the price for the 5AH have come down some as well...at least on flea-bay

I am looking at the 9 amp batteries as well but I can get 2 20/60 volt 6 amp batteries for less. I figure if I get 2 6amp batteries plus my 3 3 amp batteries I would be good to go. Or I will go with rick and eyeguy and watch rick rip it up lol.

You should get the DCB206 instead of the DCB606. The are going for right around $65 instead of close to $120 for the DCB606 20/60volt.

 

Leech,

Dewalt makes that battery ( 20V/60/) for high draw things like weed wackers and more heavy duty construction equip. I am sure it is just a matter of what pins you connect to determine your voltage. I really like using the 20v batteries on my old 18v drills and impacter with the adapter.

The DB 206 is a 20 volt max at 6 AH (amp hour) battery. The battery pack contains 10 lithium ion 3.9v batteries. (2 sets of 5 in series/parallel.) It takes 16 ion batteries wired in series to get close to 60 volts and have less than 1 AH. 

DO NOT try to change wireing. Il you short any ion battery they will burn white hot within 1 min. with NO way to put the fire out.

DeWault 20/60 volt has 15 18650 batteries @ 4 volt 3AH each. Parallel gives 20v 9ah. Series its 60v 3ah. Uses septrate contacts for each.

      A couple of dandies!

      Nice Job Jeff. Love the secret potion you know how scent can play a key role in the bite.    Wow some good prizes for this years event. People come on out and join the fun. We all will do are best to help you ice a few cats, maybe even your first. 
    • IceHawk
      Those are some dandies . The eye bite has been a little rough lately.  What worked to put those two nice ones topside?
    • IceHawk
      First off welcome to the site and thanks for posting. Not sure about a road plowed on Woman but broad water and lantern bay are good  places to find panfish on that lake. More than likely there will be a truck trail to both as they are pretty popular spots. Good luck

      Fishing as Good Friday night then Saturday not so much. Pictures from Friday, none from Saturday because everyone knows what one 5” perch looks like.

      Was on Green by Chisago with my daughter who is 6. Like others, we marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite wasn’t easy. Did catch a fair number of bluegills and crappies but really had to coax them into biting. The bite did pick up a little as it got closer to dark though. We stayed out until about 6:30pm. My daughter didn’t want to leave but I was out of propane for my heater so it was getting a little cold so we left. Everything was mostly small but did catch a couple of decent sized crappies. Ice is thick and you could pretty much drive anywhere with 4WD. Fun time with the kid and she’s hooked on it. Already asking to go again.

      First timer checking in. My folks bought a place on Child/Boy River. Looking forward to spending more time in the area. Wondering if anyone knows if there are roads plowed on Woman Lake? Was hoping to try and catch an evening/morning bite this week. Thanks
    • Borch
      Looking forward to it.  Here are some more prizes.
