18v Dewalt Auger (Cranker talked about it) ?

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any info on an 18v drill getting converted into an auger? The Cranker talked about a guy using one.

Do you need a special gear box or is it just an adapter?

Thanks

My dad was telling me about this a couple of years ago when he saw someone "drilling" holes with an 18V drill on the Mississippi backwaters. He asked the guy about it and I guess what he used was a hole saw bit that fit inside of his Lazer hand auger( not sure of the size...9/16, 11/16 ???). The hole saw has an oval opening on the side of it and he lined that up with the hole in the auger where the bolt would go through to attach the handle. Next he drilled through the hole saw with a bit that would make a hole the same size as the one on the auger, which would allow the bolt to pass all the way through. Then all he did was attach the drill as you would with any other bit and voila-a lightweight,electric, rechargable ice auger!!

They work very well. I have one. Bought it off ebay last year. Can't remember the name but basically its an adaptor that fits in your drill and then onto a hand auger. The one I have will only cut a six inch hole. I can get about 8 holes off one battery. I heard the company that makes them did upgrade now so you can use a 8" auger. I'll try to find the name for you.

They have an adapter to convert a drill into a auger at fleet farm. I am not sure how much but I know they had them around xmas time.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
