2hp 10" strikemaster ?

7 posts in this topic

I have a 2hp 8" auger. I'm thinking of getting and extra 10" auger (just the drill part, no motor) for the occasional lake trout or bluegill sight fishing trip. Most 10" augers are 3 hp. I'm wondering if the 10" auger will be too much for the 2hp motor.

Does anyone have a 2hp 10" auger? Does it work well?

Thanks for any info.

Huey

Mine works great, just keep your blades sharp. Much lighter to cary than the 3hp.

I have one, and it cuts great. I got the 10" 2HP for going after lakers, but never have fished for lakers. I have been tempted to go to an 8" hole, but I sure love the extra 2" hole.

I have the Lazer Mag Express 2hp 10inch auger and it works just fine. Just keep the blades sharp and you shouldnt have any problems.

Diddo on what everyone else said. I have the 10" lazer mag xpress and use it for everything from gills to lakers-it's not that much more weight compared to an 8". You really don't need a 10" for lakers, although it's nice. I would definitely buy one if I didn't have an auger, but personally wouldn't buy a 10" just for lakers if you already have the 8". Just my 2 cents.

I did the same thing and switched mine out. Works great.

Huey,

I have a 10" Mag 2000...it gets the job done. I have found I have NO need for a 10" hole...maybe we can work something out...

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
