Milwaukee's brushless 18V drills are equipped with cutting-edge technologies and components that make them ideal for a wide range of applications, including ice fishing with the RAZR Ice Auger. Here are some of the key features and how they work to enhance the performance of the auger

  • Powerstate Brushless Motor: This motor provides maximum power and efficiency while being more durable and long-lasting than traditional brushed motors. It can easily power through the thickest ice, making drilling holes with the RAZR Ice Auger a breeze.

  • Redlink Plus Intelligence: This technology allows the tool to communicate with the battery, charger, and tool, optimizing performance and providing overload protection. It ensures that the drill always operates at peak efficiency, prolonging battery life and reducing the risk of downtime.

  • Red Lithium Battery Technology: This technology delivers more power and runtime than traditional lithium-ion batteries, making it the ideal power source for the RAZR Ice Auger. It features advanced cell chemistry, intelligent circuitry, and impact-resistant housing to provide maximum performance and protection, even in the coldest weather conditions.

  • All-Metal Gear Case and Chuck: These components provide maximum durability and resistance to wear and tear, allowing the drill to handle the toughest ice fishing tasks. They also transfer torque more efficiently, allowing the auger to cut through ice faster and with less effort.

  • LED Work Light: This feature illuminates the work area, making it easier to see what you're doing and reducing the risk of mistakes or accidents. It's especially useful when fishing in low-light conditions or in the early morning or late evening.

  • Ergonomic Design: Milwaukee's brushless 18V drills feature soft-grip handles, well-balanced designs, and compact sizes that make them comfortable and easy to use, even during extended periods of use. This feature is especially important when using the RAZR Ice Auger for prolonged periods, as it reduces the risk of fatigue and strain.

Milwaukee offers a wide range of batteries for their brushless drills that are applicable and will work with your RAZR Ice Auger. Keep in mind, RAZR doesn't suggest anything less than a 5Ah battery when using on an ice auger. Here are some of the different battery options available:

  • Standard Red Lithium Batteries: These batteries come in a range of amp-hour capacities, up to 12.0Ah, and offer reliable power and long runtime.

  • High Output Red Lithium Batteries: These batteries offer more power and runtime than the standard Red Lithium batteries, with capacities of 6.0Ah, 8.0Ah, and 12.0Ah. They're ideal for heavy-duty applications that require maximum performance and endurance.

  • High Output HD12.0 Battery: This is Milwaukee's highest capacity battery, with 12.0Ah, and provides maximum runtime for heavy-duty applications.

By combining these advanced technologies and components, Milwaukee's brushless 18V drills are a perfect choice for ice fishing with the RAZR Ice Auger. They provide the power, efficiency, and durability needed to handle the toughest ice fishing tasks, making your time on the ice more enjoyable and productive.
