Clam Drill Auger Conversion Kit
Why work so hard to drill your ice fishing holes? The Clam® Drill Auger Conversion Kit turns your manual auger into a power auger, or in a pinch, can cover for your power auger when it's out of service. All you need is to attach any high-torque, 18V lithium battery powered drill to your auger bit section—no need to remove the chuck. The Clam Conversion Kit provides an anodized aluminum frame/plate with rubber-dipped handles and trigger, giving you a solid platform for drilling. A built-in ball bearing absorbs the torque from cutting into the ice, so the only thing your drill has to do is spin the blades. Tall bracket accommodates most drill types; includes all mounting hardware. Weight: 5 lbs.

All you needMy brother in law runs the clam plate on an 8 inch auger with a Dewalt 18v. I the clam plate with a Bosch 18v hammer drill and just recently picked up the pistol bit. We cut over 30 holes last March in 36 plus inches of ice. We run 5.0 amp batteries with ease. Would never switch for gas or anything else. Light weight. Easy to walk with. My 64 yr old mother in law cuts her own holes. Great set up 10 stars for the past 3 yrs.

Love itBought this from the local Cabela's store and love it. I use it with my Milwaukee 18 volt brushless drill. It is nice to have the handles to avoid the torque of cutting through the last 1/2 inch of ice. Before using product, I had hurt my wrist a couple different times when the auger would catch on he last 1/2 inch of ice and twist the drill in my hand. The bearing seems to help reduce some of the torque needed for drilling. It is a great set up when drilling in 8-18" of ice. I'm sure you could drill through a lot more ice with a cordless drill but I did burn up an older non-brushiless Milwaukee drill digging 8 holes through 24" of ice. Probably my own fault as I should have let the drill cool down between holes.

Slow and InnefficientInitially after hooking up my Ryobi 18v cordless drill I was very happy with the quality and the idea of this product. Unfortunately, my exuberance ended once I tried this out on the ice. After about 10 seconds my drill stopped turning as you could tell it lacked the torque necessary for the job. After about 5-10 minutes of starting and stopping my battery was dead. Bear in mind I was only 3/4 of the way through my first hole. Luckily my buddy brought his 20v Dewalt drill on the trip. We hooked his in (you need a wrench and a phillips screw driver to swap out the drill) and then continued. We made it through the first hole and were halfway through the 2nd when his drill also started encountering the same issues. Each hole we drilled required a freshly charged battery to get through and it was more of a hassle than it was worth. Another friend had an Ion 40v rechargeable auger and he was able to do 15-20 holes in one charge easily. I am returning this and going with one of those instead.
