The Top 4 Factors To Consider When Purchasing a Ice Auger

Here are the five main factors to consider when evaluating the cost of ownership of an ice auger.

Initial Cost

The initial cost of purchasing an ice auger is the most apparent factor to consider. It is essential to balance affordability with the quality of the product. RAZR Ice Augers offers a wide range of ice augers at competitive prices to ensure that ice fishing enthusiasts get the most value for their money.

If you own a 18v+ brushless drill already, your initial cost will be the ice auger bit. If you don't own the drill or auger, you will need both. The cost of both of these items combined can reach the cost of 24v or 40v lithium ice auger, but over time - the economics of the brushless drill to power your ice auger work out in your favor. We will talk about battery cost and availability later in this post.

Product Support & Warranty

RAZR Ice Augers stand behind their products, providing top-notch customer service and support. Our customer service representatives are knowledgeable and helpful, assisting customers with troubleshooting and repairs. Additionally, all RAZR Ice Augers come with a three to five year warranty, which ensures that any defects in materials or workmanship will be repaired or replaced at no cost to the owner.

Replacement Blade Cost

The blades on an ice auger experience the most wear and tear during use. Therefore, it is essential to consider the cost of replacement blades when evaluating the cost of ownership. RAZR Ice Augers offers high-quality replacement blades that are more affordable than our competitors and built to last.

Replacement Battery Cost & Availability

For electric ice augers, the battery's cost and availability are essential factors to consider. In comparing auger power sources we know brushless drill batteries are more readily available and often cost less to replace than a large, proprietary 40v or 24v ice auger battery. This means that if your brushless drill battery fails, you can quickly and easily replace it without breaking the bank and likely at a hardware store near you. Furthermore, advances in battery technology mean that batteries and motors from companies like Milwaukee and DeWalt are only getting better as technologies continue to evolve. So when you are looking at 40V Lithium and 24V Lithium Ice Augers, ask yourself: Will this battery be available in 3 to 5 years? How long will the most popular Ice Auger brands support their proprietary battery in an evolving space?

In conclusion, owning an ice auger is a necessary investment for any ice fishing enthusiast. However, the economics of ownership go beyond the initial purchase price. When evaluating the cost of ownership, it is crucial to consider factors such as product support, warranty, replacement blade cost, and battery cost and availability.
