    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.
