Are you sure it's an ice auger? Stihl only lists earth augers on both the Canada and US websites.

here you go Bob....   STIHL Augers
STIHL Augers for a wide range of uses

STIHL augers solve a variety of drilling problems ranging from simple vertical holes in ice to drilling through the most demanding soil. STIHL augers are used by fencing crews, forest service personnel, highway repair crews, landscape gardeners, local maintenance authorities, and vineyard keepers

no wonder they are expensive, sound like they have a bit more power then needed for your average ice trip.

Ahhhh...I see.

Looks heavy (19# not including the bit) and slow (only 190 RPM) to boot. Not much of an advantage to this one.

Joco,
That's pretty common for earth augers (~40:1 gear ratios). They move a lot more weight and are going through unknown types of material, so part of the  reason is for safety and part is for power.
