Title: Got a new toy :)
Post by: Drifter_016 on Apr 08, 2013, 07:26 PM
Another addition to the auger stable came home today.   ;D
Got me a Tanaka TIA-305 with Strikemaster Mora 8" bit for $150. 
The powerhead is in fabulous condition and starts first pull.

Enjoy your new toy Drifter you got a great deal on the purchase price. Put the auger to good use with what remains of your ice season up in Yellow Knife

Something like that or a Nils with a Tanaka head will be my next purchase for ice fishing. I'm sick of junk augers and I refuse to pay a bunch of money for a new one that's no better.

That should be a nice setup!

That box is a good idea for the powerhead too Drifter! I bet it would save you from another broken gear box  >:(

I was looking at building a similar carrier for the basket on my sled for next year. Might save me from motor hunting  ;D

Just don't put it in your toboggan.
It may fall out the hole!!!   :whistle:

The milk crate I'm using now is pretty decent too.   ;)

Jiffy is sending me a new recoil assembly! After my throttle stuck open and broke the pull cord, they decided to cover it under warranty!
