Ice Fishing 101: Everything you need to know about Brushless Drill Ice Augers
In recent years, there has been a significant shift towards using brushless drills to power ice augers. In this blog post, we will explore why brushless drills are the future of powering ice augers.
RAZR offers a range of ice augers that are engineered specifically for use with a brushless drill, including the RAZR Synthetic Ultra, RAZR Scout®, and RAZR Synthetic Lite.
All three models are designed to be lightweight and compact, making them easy to transport and store. They also feature durable materials and curved shaver style blades, making quick work of even the thickest ice.
The RAZR Synthetic Ultra is one of the most popular choices for ice anglers. When paired with a brushless drill, it provides maximum performance. The Pro Curved Blades are designed to shave through the ice layer by layer, drawing the auger through the ice with little to no downward pressure by the user while drilling.
The RAZR Scout® is another great option for ice anglers. It is designed to be extremely durable and more compact than the Synthetic Ultra, making it an ideal choice. The Scout features metal flighting and Curved Blades, ensuring efficient and effective drilling.
If you're looking for an even more lightweight option, the RAZR Synthetic Lite is a great choice. It is designed to be the one of the lightest weight ice augers on the market, making it perfect for those who want to travel light. The Synthetic Lite also features synthetic flighting and Curved Blades, providing excellent performance in a compact package.
When looking for a brushless drill to pair with your RAZR ice auger, it's important to choose an 18V or higher brushless electric drill with a minimum 5 Amp Hour battery, a 1/2” chuck, a side stabilizer/handle, and a minimum torque of 750 in-lbs.
Additionally, look for a drill with a no-load speed of 550 RPM on speed setting #1.
The advantages of brushless drills for powering ice augers are numerous. They offer improved efficiency, longer battery life, lower maintenance requirements, and cost-effectiveness. As battery technology continues to improve, we can expect to see even more innovations in the world of ice augers. When choosing the right power source for your ice auger, consider the benefits of brushless drills and make an informed decision that fits your needs and preferences.
