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.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.
