2904 review.
« on: Nov 22, 2022, 11:30 AM »
So I plunked down the cash for a 2904 M-18 with 8AH batt. and a 8" lite-flite.

1st time out 7"of hard ice and I can honestly say Ive never used a better auger in my life! Started using gas augers in 1991! :P

Id say it cut thru the 7" in 2 seconds. The drill never even torques your wrist.  Effortless is a good word. AWSOMENESS is an even Better word! ;D

I highly recommend it to anyone.  Oh the new re-designed handle was a non-issue. just hand tightened it when I got it.

in summation the setup was worth every penny! ;D

I own that same lite flite.  Only thing I found faster was the nils which I also picked up.  All cut very quick nowadays.

Thanks for the feedback! I've got a 2704, but might be time to upgrade.

The 8AH battery still showing 4 bars I put it on the charger and the charge light just stayed green.  After 30 holes now Im weirded out.

Surely you would think it would use SOME juice! :P

Ive drilled 50+ holes through 10 of ice with my 4 amp dewalt battery and still had plenty of juice left.  Youd be surprised.

You have the best, but truth be told, for your use its overkill.

It would be very difficult to see much power drop in an 8 amp battery no matter what.  Definitely overkill unless your goin through 2 feet of ice.

Same here.  Tend to make Swiss cheese out of the ice.
