Wow that does seem like a lot of work for a drill. ? would be how much life does it take out of your drill?

No way! I cant see not needing several batteries just to do one hole thru 16". Seems like a joke to me.

Dont get me wrong guys .. I'm a serious skeptic about everything new.. but I'm also very mehanically inclined and have some experience with robotics, and creating various items.

The drill shown in the picture (18V Ryobi)has decent torque and a pretty good battery life. The other drill mentioned was a 12V DeWalt(XRP assuming) which is another drill that will handle some serious work, and has a great battery life. It was specified to run at the low speed setting on the drill.. which is still cruising for a 5"-6" hole.

The auger shown is a lazer hand auger in a 5" diameter at 30 holes.. and a 6" was also mentioned at 22 and claimed to drill 22 holes.

I dont know if you guys have used a 5" lazer personally, but when the blades are sharp, they will turn with no effort.. a 6" isnt much different.

I believe their claims are possible, with a WARM, freshly charged battery cutting through clear ice(not old holes). With a 24V Dewalt Hammer Drill(extra handle for support) it likely wouldnt be any problem drilling out holes in a permanent with a lazer type auger with sharp blades.

This may be an item very well worth trying.. It should work well as long as your batteries are kept warm.

Saw that at e bay a while back. First question I had- won't that thing rip your hand off when you break through? You know sometimes how augers catch at the bottom of the hole?

I thought of that too.. thats why I made the comment on the hammer drill(takes 2 hands).

I never said the thing couldn't be hard on the wrist .. but my best guess is that it would work. My guess is one would have to lift up the auger and get the rpm's up when the auger sticks... I think we have all done that with gas augers... at least the drill has reverse if the auger gets wedged too bad.

I would also think the hand auger blades would get dull quicker than the *power lazer* blades. A person with one of these adapters may be better off with an 8" auger and a heavier drill so it can handle proper blades?

I guess its all theory, but it would be nice to have a *cordless* auger... one less small engine to tune every other year.

I have an old hand auger in the garage, I think I'll try to make an adapter and see if it works a all.

      It is strange that the developers did not think of such a nuance. In any case, you need to place an ad on the labor exchange, where you will find employees for the company and they will work with you, only you will need to conduct a preliminary interview

      Creating an application for such a hotel would be the best option. Place your ad on the job exchange on the Internet, I know a few of these, then you can find developers for yourself and the work will go much easier

      You won’t have to search for a long time, rather you will need to choose from the options offered. Look on the Internet for all the available options, such developers usually have their own sites that have all the information you need

      I am sure that if you search in the google search engine you will find a company that is dedicated to that, but to be honest I have not much idea, I never planted the idea of something like that, from my ignorance it is very complicated, but maybe someone who have more notion of it can guide you and can even recommend a company with a good reputation that is dedicated exclusively to it, good luck with all that

      Haven't really targeted geese, think we've got 3 Ross geese a blue goose and one Canada goose. We focus more on ducks, especially when we can get them in the field. Greater and lesser Canada geese around but they are spread out tons of feeds but no large feeds

      Finally got the choirs done. Roofed a shed and built a woodshed. Most done by myself. Now's time to go fishing before the deer season.  Found some crappies tonight, caught 11, missed at least that many. West end. Skunked again, how'd you do, saw you heading out?
