      Comments about Eskimo® Shark Z51 Power Ice Auger, 8":

      Bought this auger last fall. Far exceeded my expectations. Runs great, Power to spare, Cuts fast. Only problem was on 1 trip everything was melting (Snow/Ice.) Didn't have a cover for sled or auger. Sled filled with water and water got into throttle cable and froze. I broke plastic throttle lever trying to free it. My Fault. Morel of the story buy an auger cover. BUT STILL A GREAT PRODUCT... If this one ever dies I will replace it with the same one.

        Comments about Eskimo® Shark Z51 Power Ice Auger, 8":

        I think this is a little heavy, but then again I'm only 5'4". I just put it in my jet sled to get to my ice fishing spot. You don't even need to push down when drilling through the ice.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Gander Mountain was very polite and friendly. I would ask for Joshua in customer service he was great and helped with this order.

        Great Auger. Take CAUTION when ordering on line though. Online picture is of 2011 model with Alum handles. The one they sent was last years model with plastic handles. NOT THE AUGER I ORDERED.
