The Eskimo Mako Ice Auger is powerful and comfortable. Using a 43cc Viper two-cycle engine, this auger features a high level of performance with its fingertip throttle control. Even more, it has a quick-response starter primer button which enables the user to to conveniently operate the machine.
To ensure a smooth operation, this auger also features an all-ball-bearing transmission. When it’s frighteningly cold and an angler needs to where mittens or gloves, this device features an extra-large recoil handle. This handle is also fitted with anti-vibration foam, helping to make the part easier to handle as the auger turns. The engine’s muffler on the Eskimo Mako Ice Auger is guarded, protecting the user from the hot spots. One of the most interesting features of this model is the fact that it has a transparent gas tank, so monitoring gas levels is an ease. The blades themselves are top-of-the-line, dual-layered, serrated stainless steel, which makes for some of the fastest boring on the market today. This is all finished with a powder coating, adding durability.
My Overall Review:
I would rate my overall review of the Eskimo Mako Ice Auger as a 4 out of 5 stars. Overall, the Eskimo Mako Ice Auger is a great instrument for getting the ice fishing process going. It works remarkably well and is extremely easy to use. In terms of durability, this model can handle some of the most intense conditions. Particularly nice is the handle, which allows for comfortable use without the rattle most machines have. I only docked it one star during the review because I felt that it twisted more than some other ice auger models that are made by Eskimo, but overall the performance really fits the price.
