Rated 5 out of 5 by Bhorn123 Ice Master Adapter This is the best adapter I have used. It's small,compact design keeps it from catching on my clothes. It's very easy to install. Here is a tip, I drill 100 plus holes a day, after a dozen holes or so check to make sure your bolt to the auger and drill chuck is tight. Usually it's not a problem but it's easier to check it. I use a 18v Milwaukee with lithium batteries, it's plenty of power to use on a 6" auger or smaller. January 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by KonaMalia Best Ever Ice Fishing Product PRODUCT - These adapters are designed to connect a hand auger to a drill chuck. This one is the best I’ve seen because: 1) The Ice Master adapter has triangular flats on the chuck insert preventing the auger from slipping under load (others are round); 2) A small disc holds the auger in place (others use a long metal rod which can whack you when drilling); 3) The bungee cord takes some pressure off the chuck from the heavy auger (others do not have this feature). OPERATION - The Ice Master adapter works with both screw on or pin type augers, and any good 1/2 inch chuck drill (most come with an auxiliary handle or offer one as an option - get it for better control). With sharp blades, no pressure is needed to drill holes, but use care when breaking through the ice, the auger wants to pull you into the hole. PERFORMANCE - Adapters are not designed to turn battery drills into gas augers, and won’t drill hundreds of 8 inch holes. But when used as designed, they are far better than hand drilling (and about 6 times faster). I use a Milwaukee 18 volt drill with a 5 inch StrikeMaster Mora auger, usually drill 12 to 20 holes in 8 to 20 plus inches of ice, and have never needed to use a second battery. A friend with a Sears 19.2 volt drill and StrikeMaster 6 inch Lazer has also had excellent results. I strongly recommend this product. January 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by CurtS Made life easy Purchased produce at Bass Pro, and took it home to use on our pond. Had the right ice auger to be converted, but had some problems getting it apart. Called the number listed on the package and got some very helpfull info about the auger and getting it apart, just applied a little heat and it turned right off. Product worked well with a full battery in 8" of ice. December 30, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by invisableyes WORKS GRRRRRRREAT!!! I had bought the ice master adaptor from bass pro last year and i loved it. On one battery i drilled 28 holes through 14in of ice. I will never turn back to a gas auger or hand held. I highly recommend it. November 30, 2007

A:I like the Basspro brand and the Strikemaster brand. I have both, I recommend up to a 6 inch auger. You get fewer holes the larger the Auger.
A:Nope, you juse need the style of hand crank that has the through-bold wingnut to attach the handle. These work best on 6" and smaller hand crank augers and you'll want an 18V or more cordless drill, ideally with the lithium ion batteries....a regular old lead acid 12v wont' get you very far. The higher the quality of the hand crank auger, the longer the battery will last. Dull blades are no good!
Details:And what type of battery did you use? Ni-cad, lithium, etc.?
A:I use a Milwaukee 18v with lithium batteries. I think there is 450ftp of torque. Use on number 1 setting.
A:My drill has 600 inch pounds of torche and it works great. I have a Milwaukee.
A:You need at least a 19v drill with a lithium ion battery for best results. 400 inch pounds of torche works great.
