NILSUSA Convertible Auger

This is the hottest auger on the ice in North America. It's the one everyone talks about. This is a hand auger that simply converts into an electric powered auger by removing the handle and adding a cordless drill.  The attached flare prevents accidental loss down the hole.

UR600C 6'

Converting the Auger

For best results when using the 8" auger choose a 2 speed high torque cordless drill with 700 inches of torque or better.

An 18V (Minimum) Lithium battery powered cordless drill with a brushless motor is recommended in all applications 

For reference - An 8" auger with a Milwaukee 18v Fuel Drill weighs approximately 12.5 pounds.

NILSUSA Folding Auger
