      I received my Eskimo Mako 8" auger last January for my birthday from my wife. I have used it quit a bit since getting it and it has worked flawlessly. It starts great, runs great, and has plenty of power for drilling thru the ice. I was impressed with the quality and the price is great which makes it a great value.

      My buddy and I have used my 8 inch Mako for 5 years and we love it... It has always started easily,ran smoothly and cut holes in a hurry...
      The blades are dull now after cutting a few hundred holes and I am having a tough time finding the proper replacements...

        I bought this after looking long and hard at others, including Jiffy and Strikemaster. I went for the Eskimo because it offered a larger engine at a lower price - and boy am I happy I went with it.

        It starts up easily and runs great, quickly cutting all the way through the ice in one motion. Never bogs down for me. The other day I was out fishing, and the guy next to me with a Strikemaster Mag2000 was getting bogged down, while I was cutting all the way through with ease. Made me feel great!

        Comments about Eskimo Mako M43 Power Ice Auger, 8":

        It works really good and fast, but like the third time I was using it the plastic throttle broke off. So its a little cheap. and also if you use it for a while and leave it outside and try to use it again, sometimes the throttle cable gets frozen and can use until it warms up.
