the chainsaw I got uses whatís called chain oil to lube the chain after a few minutes it starts blowing too much out called chain bar oil.
Do they make an oil less one? May be interested

If you're cutting ice, you don't need bar oil. The oil cools the chain more than anything. The water will do that for you.

Milwaukee 2703 eighteen volt, the one I bought before Christmas was 279.
Came with 2 five amp batteries and a charger. For the deal they were giving an extra battery.

Paired with the kdrill 8 " , that is an awesome combo.

The drill is a beast also.

CPO is where i bought the drill, free shipping also.

Milwaukee Fuel M18 w 4.0 Lithium battery on a Nils 6" auger, set at 1 on drill. Make sure to put handle on or it can torque ones wrist.

Milwaukee fuel for sure. I use a 5 inch lazer and it screams through ice and reopening old holes. Best money I ever spent for sure

I have a Ridgid 18v lithium ion with a handle.  We drilled 99 holes through 6" of ice on one charge once to test it out.   I have not used the hammer drill setting though.  Is that recommended??

Since you ask for the best drill its the fuel. I use a Ryobi 18v hammer drill and have 2 4 amp batteries with a 6" Mora. Ive never ran both batteries dead on a trip. Batteries are 3 years old and holding up so far this season.

It seems like going with a 6-inch auger would be more efficient, just saying, you could always take your generator with a 2 horsepower Hilti drill.,

Milwaukee Fuel like everyone is saying. I've drilled at least 25 to 30 holes (6") on a battery 6-8" thick ice
