Go down to Dan Wood's post called "Auger reviews" There is some very good info there.

The only thing I would suggest is to stay away from 3hp models.

Just my opinion

They are all good augers, all use the same motor. one spins one way the other spins the other way. I have a jiffy 3hp 9" and the Ultra 3 blade. The 3hp will out cut when warmed up and spins faster, the 2hp Ultra bogs down a little when cutting.

Since I you didnt mention a Eskimo auger I will. There engines are probably the best out there. I absoutly love them. The gas tank is nice, the moffler is covered, you can lean it on its side, has a choke and a primer, and is built tough.

But if you arent looking at a Eskimo I would go with the SM Ultra 9" 3-blade. A very fast, smooth auger. It works wonders on re-opening old holes too.

i have a 2 horse jiffy legend lightning with the 9" d-icer armor ripper blades. i really like this auger. i took it up to lake of the woods and left it outside in -25 degrees weather and had absolutely no problems starting it. it fired on the third pull. the 9 " seems to be the perfect size for me. i used to fish out of a ten inch hole, but down sized when bringing kids with me. the two horse seems to cut great and when the chipper blade brakes through it seems to bog down a little bit, i just lift up on it and it finishes the hole just fine. i would definately buy another one if i ever have to. just my .02

I would go with Dan Woods advise. He seems to be a smart feller or a fart smeller one or the other.

i think the only difference between the stealth and mine is the addition of two small cutting surfaces on the pilot point. i have a friend with the stealth 8" it cuts nice, but i don't know if it is enough to warrant paying more for it. i got a heck of a deal on mine when i bought it. i bought it at a cabelas side walk sale last fall for 225.00. it was one of four that were new in the box. i have cut probably 200 holes with it so far and i really like it. customer service with the jiffy has been excellent. i have no doubt that there are several other good augers out there. i just happened to find mine on sale and now that i have it i would have paid full price for it in a heartbeat. but i shouldn't have to buy another auger for quite a while. good luck making a decision.

I have a Jiffy 3hp Legend and she cuts great after the 6th hole.(takes awhile to get her warmed up)
I used an Eskimo Barracuda (2hp) the other day and was very immpressed.She started right up and ran great even on the first hole.It cut faster than a warmed up Jiffy too.If you get one you should invest in some Ice Grippers.It will spin you. smile.gif

info i can give now is to buy from a local shop so if there is a problem you can go back to them ,that is if they have a good return policy and ask what there policy is. i'm still trying to get one that works, i'm on # 3 and still waiting.i won't do mail order again for a power auger. too much hassle if they don't work.

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options
    • Conan Bail
      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.
    • Andre.y
      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.
