jiffy 3hp


pout-pounder

Question

How close to a fish house wall can you drill with a 3hp Jiffy. I would like to upgrade to a 10" hole (i have a 2hp 8") now. None of the dealers near me have a 3hp model assembled. If someone would set their 3hp jiffy staight up against a wall and measure out to the center point of the auger I would really appreciate it.

I don't have the auger, but I know Jiffy makes a special fish house handle as accessory that lets you drill closer to the wall.

I have this auger and have been very happy with how well it works.If you are going to want to get into tight corners,you will need different handles.

I'll try to remember to get a measurement for ya this weekend. No guarantees, tho, my memory is shaky.

I didn't take the cover off, but it looked to be about 6.5 inches to the center point. Hope that helps.

The jiffy steath is 13 inches wide and 26 inches across ,length,so from the center of motor or centerline of auger to outside edge of handle,13 inches.So with the auger in the hole and room to hold onto the handle it would be approx. 13.5-14 inches.So if you have 14 inches from the center of you hole to the wall you should be good to go,with that being the very minimum. Hope this answers your question.

Thanks guys, I'm trying to layout holes for a new house. I was told the 10" auger will go nearly flush to the wall, but that puts the exhaust right against the wall, wasn't thinking that was too cool (pun). I think I'll just keep my 2hp w/ icehouse handles and find a replacement 9 inch auger.

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....

      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.
