Product Spotlight:Ice Fishing Ice AugerEskimo Hc40 Quantum Propane Ice Fishing Auger Series, 8-10 InchMany ice anglers are switching to 4-cycle propane powered augers because they are clean burning and low maintenance. However, they are also known to be heavy and hard to handle, or lightweight and lack power. The Eskimo® HC40™ propane auger was designed from the ground up, creating an auger that is both lightweight and powerful. Instead of just adapting a gasoline engine to run on propane, the engineers at Eskimo designed the engine on the HC40 to take full advantage of the higher octane rating of propane fuel. The higher compression ratio creates more power out of a smaller package, which means the angler has a lighter weight auger with the power to quickly cut an eight inch hole. The powerful high compression engine will perform for years when paired with the all-metal, sealed, ball bearing transmission and fast cutting 2 blade Quantum™ augers. At only 28 lbs, the HC40 8” propane auger gives ice anglers the reliability and dependability they have come to expect from Eskimo in an extremely powerful, lightweight package. The 10” HC40 propane ice auger weighs only 31 pounds. Featuring a clean burning, 40cc 4-cycle engine with minimal emissions, this ice auger is easy to use and easy to store. With an auto prime fuel system, it runs on readily available 1 lb. propane cylinder, and easily connects with a Quick-Release bottle holder. Designed with a Quantum Cutting System, your high-compression propane auger will last longer and hold its edge in dirty ice. Designed for chasing big fish, the HC40 10” propane ice auger is a powerful addition to your ice fishing gear.
